BIA: 4 Projects in 4 Weeks Now Enrolling at MCC

I am very excited to be teaching a NEW course at My Creative Classroom this Spring: Bind-it-All: 4 Projects in 4 Weeks.  This course is for BIA 101 graduates or confident BIA users who want some fabulous project ideas that can be adapted and customized over and over again to rave reviews and oohs and ahhhs.
Here's the official class description:

Bind-it-All: 4 Projects in 4 Weeks
Are you ready to get your punching and binding mojo cookin’? This course is for the experienced (or BIA 101 graduate) who wants to crank out FOUR awesome projects using the Bind-it-All and a bevy of other Zutter tools and products. You will be given the creative freedom to theme your projects as you wish, but will be provided the instruction and inspiration to create personalized masterpieces. Not only that, but once you learn the easy techniques for these projects, you can repeat them again and again and modify to your creative-heart's content!

1.Accordion Album: What is one of the BEST things about using the BIA? The ability to make amazing projects using supplies and scraps you already have in your stash. The first weeks lesson is just that. Using scrap cardboard (or Zutter's new Corrugated Cardboard) and your choices of patterned papers, we will create a fun accordion style album, held together with the BIA and Zutter’s too cute Perfect Closures. You will want a Scor-it-All or other scoring tool for this lesson.

 2.Coffee Table Masterpiece: Have you ever made a mini album or book that you wanted to show off…but when you left it on the coffee table (or your desk at work) it got shuffled and covered by magazines and other incidentals? No! Showcase your cherished photos on the Zutter Display-it-All with a custom-bound photo flip album, using the NEW Pre-Punched Movable Page Protectors. This album will not be ignored!

3.Star Album BIA Style: So much you can do with your favorite photos, papers and the Bind-it-All. Create a unique star-shaped album sure to dazzle and delight. Bonus project this week too! Fun

4.Custom Zutter Spinner Album: Using the all-in-one kit from Zutter, we will be making a one-of-a-kind spinner album. Whether you want to make a recipe spinner, address book, calendar or memory spinner – this lesson will explore all the creative options for making it your own (or for someone else!) I will be theming mine "Dictionary of Me" and will provide journaling prompts for this theme if you wish to follow along.
