Sneak peek at Thursday's class

This is a class sample for the Peanut & Butter Jelly class on Thursday, 6/26/09 @ 6:30pm. This is a community service project. I’m doing this class for those who are without food. The Alaska food bank is looking for donations, and they say they are always looking for PB & J. Class fee is $10 or $5 with Peanut Butter or Jelly food donation. I will be serving PB & J cookies, Jessie’s recipe! RVSP to reserve your space.

Here is a little bit about the class. I love the look of the popular layered books that a few scrap companies make. After looking at a few I decided to try to make one of my own, however this is smaller version. The largest page is 4x6. I used a deck of giant playing cards that I bought in Las Vegas last year. 1 deck of cards could make several books for family gifts (Christmas, a child color book, baby shower, wedding or your top 5). I could go on. My thought is to not use bulky embellishments on the inside (this is why I my daughter's page has nothing yet) and laminate each page, then it is finger friendly for those little ones to look at. Tell me what you think.

Supplies used: CTMH Bella Level 1 paper pack, CTMH Noteworthy stamp set, Pansy purple ink pad, purple & green paper flowers, random ribbon, buttons and Nestablities die cut.


  1. very pretty. What a neat idea using the large playing cards. They are like cardstock only sturdier.

  2. Great idea! Perfect size, weight and thickness.

    Have you seen the toilet paper roll albums (they have examples on youtube)??

  3. This is an awesome project! TFS about the giant playing cards--a perfect product to use!
