Monterey 2013 Album (Amy Tan class--2015)

Last month, my good friend Liz and I drove up to Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley (it just recently closed--boo!) to take an Amy Tan class. It was so much fun! And we got a ton of goodies! (Seriously, the amount of product was totally worth the price of the class!)

We didn't get much done, but it was a blast. Amy is such a great person. I highly recommend taking a class with her if you ever get the chance. 

During National Scrapbook Day (see Jossie's post--we had so much fun!), I actually got a lot of the book complete by just copying Amy's layouts. I worked on completing the album all last week and I finally finished.

There are a lot of pages (47) and I think I figured out how to do a slideshow (ok, it works on a computer, but it won't show the slide show on an iPhone/iPad).

Since I had more photos that didn't fit on the finished pages, I actually added a few more of my own design--whoo hoo! I love Sea Anemones...this one looked like a sunflower :)


I also love Sea Horses! This one looks like a leaf. The paper I used, the numbers really didn't work, so I painted over with lime green and white acrylic paint.

My niece had given me a thank you card for taking her, so I used it in the back and added her picture inside the card.

One of the techniques Amy showed us was with the Fuse tool. Of course I had to buy one! On one of the layouts I did, I added sequins and loved the look. last photo from our trip because jellyfish are also one of my favorite!


I really love sea creatures, but I don't like the water! brain freezes and I can't breathe right when trying to swim or use snorkel gear! 

Thank you for letting me share my album!


  1. Great job, Linda! (The seahorses and jellyfish were my faves, too!) That was a real fun class and I'm glad we got to go together.:) I think I've said this before, but you are on such a roll with your scrapbooking! Good for you and keep it up!;)
