So Blessed Album $60
Friday December 9th 6:30-9:30pm
 

Counting your blessings isn’t just for Thanksgiving time… it can change your outlook every day! This special scrapbook/journal is the perfect place to record the things you are grateful for whether just the words or the photos of dear people or wonderful things or special places. You might use it to tell the story of your spiritual journey or of a great love that you have. With a specially curated kit including products from Bella Blvd, Pinkfresh Designs, Pebbles Inc, Amy Tangerine, Ranger, and even Target and the office supply store, you’ll have lots to choose from to make this album personal for you!

We’ll create this unique album together, and you’ll learn techniques that can be used in other scrapbook projects to make interactive, interesting pages as we fold and flip the paper like an origami engineer! 🙂 You can change the title and look of the front cover of this unique book to make it anything you want it to be for you or for someone special.

Your kit includes all the products you need to make this album and includes directions with color photos.

Student Supply list: Each person needs their own 12” paper trimmer and strong tape adhesive (I use Scor-pal ¼” and 1” tape most often), ruler, pencil, scissors, scoring tool, stapler, foam adhesive, Crop a Dile or We R Memory Keepers ¼” Power Punch, corner rounder punch, scallop scissors, Tim Holtz Binder Punch, powder to make stickers “unsticky”.

My Story Book Mixed Media Album $75

In this creative class, with a unique mixed-media 6×8″ Handbook album from American Crafts as our foundation, we will incorporate papers and embellishments from the feminine and fanciful Crate Paper Cute Girl collection with paints and stamps and ink to make an album full of ideas for scrapbooking and art journaling projects. The album comes filled with 6 acrylic pages, 10 watercolor paper pages, and 10 divided page protectors. We’ll add colorful and whimsical elements to make an album just right for special photos, stories, and memories of girly fun. Using simple watercolor techniques and interactive designs for the divided page protectors, your album will be ready for all your photos and stories.

I plan to use the book for the stories and photos and memories of all the things I wished for as a little girl that have come true… my home, my family, my travels, my friends… from little things to big things! You can use your album for anything you can dream of (or it makes a perfect gift for a special girl.)

All kits contain directions with color photos.

This year we will be creating our annual Christmas album using the pastel and playful Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa collection and products from Tim Holtz Ideology, Ranger, PinkFresh Designs, May Arts, and American Crafts. This kit is huge! From the darling pom-pom banner that we’ll create to the cute paper clips that decorate the pages, I think you’ll love the colors and graphics of this whimsical collection as much as I do!

We will make this custom 11″ x 8 1/2″ album together in class – then you’ll be able to use the techniques to make any size scrapbook or journal that you want! I hope you are inspired – the skies the limit on what you can create!
