I took a class earlier this month at the San Francisco Center for the Book with two of my cousins. I actually signed up for this class in November of last year. The class only took 8 students and depending on the class, they could fill up pretty fast.
I've been wanting to learn the crossed structure binding for awhile. You can read more about this binding here.
This is the book I made in class.
These are samples that the teacher made and brought to class to show the different variations you can do with this type of binding:
I'm hoping to experiment when I have the time to try these variations.
I'm home sick today - or at least recovering from some bad allergies yesterday. There are times when I'm not sure if it's a cold or allergies but I took the day off to rest. Since the kids are at school I took a little time to take another workshop at Creativebug. I made a couple of iris fold cards. It's a pretty quick project once you prepare your materials and lay them all out. I used a family photo taken a few years ago and one of Jason when he was 1 year old. I enlarged the oval template just slightly to fit the photo.
