Father’s Day Mini album workshop

Friday May 25th 6:00pm 

Come and create a unique and personal mini album with room to add 6 photos making this a gift that Dad is sure to treasure.  In this class you will be learning to use a cutting guide to measure and cut all of your own papers. Please bring a 12″ paper trimmer and adhesives if you have them. This will save time not having to pass around my tools and wait for your turn.

The $30 kit for this class includes:

“Victory” level 2 paper pack

“Victory” My Stickease

Durables Studs

My Creations Memory Showcase 6×6 accordion album

If you and a friend would like to save a few$ and share the paper pack and the package of studs, the cost for the class would be $24 for each of you. You will each still be able to create the album, you just won’t have as much left over to create with on your own.

Please RSVP no later than Thursday May 17th and arrange pre-payment with me at that time. I can accept cash, checks or credit cards.


Mother ~Daughter Brunch

Today was our annual Mother ~ Daughter brunch at church. I was blessed to have 4 generations of my family attend. My mom, daughter and granddaughter were there with me, as well as my daughter in law and her mom. Her grandma injured her foot and wasn’t able to make it. I made a topiary centerpiece for the table and post it note holder favors for the ladies. We had a nice day together.

I used the Lucy paper collection to make everything. 128 roses and about 8 hours went into making the topiary. I added battery operated lights to this one. The post it note holders have a small pen attached and magnet strips on the back so they can be kept handy on the fridge. These are quick and easy gifts to make.

Thanks for visiting.
