Are you ready for some relaxation and fun (also known as crafting therapy)? I know I am! Well, why not join me this Saturday for some crafty classes?!

Have you ever wanted to see what scrapbooking is all about? Well, here’s your chance. This Saturday, June 28, 2014, I will be hosting a Scrapbooking 101 Class from 12:30 to 2:30 pm. The class is free, but you will need to purchase some supplies and bring along ten to twenty photos of your choice. I will take you through the organizational processes, basic design considerations, and essential tools and how to use them properly. We will work on a basic page layout before you leave the class to get you started on the scrapbooking journey.

Then following the Banner Class, I will be teaching the Project Life 101 Class from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Bring along 6 to 10 photos and I will show you the fundamentals of using the Project Life system to simplify and speed up from scrapbooking projects. This will also be the last time this class is offered.

I also have the Wreaths Made Easy Class scheduled for 12:30 – 2:30 pm that day, but regretfully I don’t have any photos of that project to post here. If you are interested in that class you need to sign-up as soon as possible. The class will be canceled if no one signs up by tomorrow, so don’t delay. This class will not be offered again. You can sign-up in the store or on-line for any of these classes.

Looking forward to seeing you there for some much needed fun and crafting!

I just saw this project in the Scrapbook Expo Weekly Scrapper newsletter and can’t wait to try it out. I have some wonderful leftover Tim Holtz 4th of July papers that would work really well for this project. So dig out your distress ink pads and let’s do some distressing! I’m thinking this would be interesting to do with a Christmas theme as well. What do you think? So hop on over to Lori Williams’ blog – Pinkcloud Scrappers – for the project directions and then change it up and make it your own.

Hello and Welcome!

What a week this has been. The last day of school and summer break has officially begun. Woo Hoo! And I have been finishing up the final touches on all of the new class samples for tomorrow’s Class Open House at Michaels. I will be in the store from 11am to 2pm displaying all our current and new class samples for everyone to see and to offer discounted class prices and a coupon good tomorrow for $20 towards your class supplies. What a deal! I hope I will get to meet some new friends and visit with old friends as we kick off the summer class schedule. See you there!
