Class Descriptions:
Score, Cut and Fold 6x9 Mini Book Family Moments or Christmas Memories
This unique and fantastic book works for so many different themes that I am offering two options, you can choose Family Moments featuring Homespun by Simple Stories or Christmas Memories featuring Cozy Christmas by Simple Stories. We will be making 6 different folded pages that incorporate pockets, tags, flaps, envelopes and more. You will love the versatility of these pages, this could also easily be turned into a family recipe book or a December daily book.

 
Crate Full of Memories
I just fell in love with these super cool vintage style mini crates by 7 Gypsies. This project uses the 4x6 crate and we will make 12 different dividers- one for each month- or whatever you like - this would also be a cute recipe box. We will use mini canvases, file folders, burlap, corrugated cardboard, paper bags and so much more. The Seasons Snap collection by Simple Stories is just perfect to embellish this fun project and then add in some paper clips, ribbon, trim, clothes pins, enamel dots, buttons, metal clips and other favorites for a one of a kind project.
 


12 x 12 Layouts-8 Seasonal Pages
I am going back "old school" for my layout class and doing traditional 2 page, 12 x 12 layouts. No pocket pages or project life. 2 pages for each season (winter, spring, summer and fall), all ready for you to add your photos.  Even though I am going old school, I promise some new techniques and fresh layouts- no sticker borders with wavy lines (I still have some of those pages in my books). Feel free to bring photos for this class if you want to add them after class. The photo sizes are all traditional 4x6, 4x4 and a few 3x4 thrown in. I am not using one paper collection for this, I am mixing it up and selecting a different set of paper for each double layout.
 

Quick and Easy Cards
This fun class is all about assembling 8 fantastic cards. 2 Birthday (1 feminine, 1 masculine), 2 Thank You (1 feminine, 1 masculine), Valentines, Anniversary/Wedding and 2 all occasion (1 feminine, 1 masculine). This class kit is all ready to roll, all of the sentiments are preprinted and ready for you to use, the pieces are all precut, embellishments are included, all you need is adhesive. I wanted to put together a fun and fast class that you can easily get done and then copy the designs again and again.

Such a fun and creative weekend at our Spring Workshop

Oh my, it takes me like a week to recover from the workshop weekends, partly because I leave too many things until the last minute and then am up all night to finish, and partly because they are so much fun that I come home exhausted.

I just love all of the creative energy and the ladies who attend are the best.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend, I never remember to take photos while the event is going on, so these are of the set up and projects.

 
 
  
Kits from the Workshop will be up for sale starting May 6th. Visit our website for more details.

Christmas Card Books- 3 down, ? more to go

Hi Scrappy Chicks
I wanted to share something that I worked on/figured out/started over the retreat weekend. Christmas card books! Yippee!

I have been wanting to do mini books of the wonderful photo cards, special letters and handmade cards that we receive every year for Christmas. It has been on my long term project list for like 5 years.

So last weekend I packed up about 10 years worth of cards-because I am really good at saving them- and my Cinch, some other misc Christmas supplies.

I decided on an 8x8 format. This works great for the larger photo cards that people are sending now.
I made a pocket page for special handmade cards and letters.
I used washi tape to make binding tabs for other handmade cards and folded cards that I didn't want to punch holes in.

 
I just punched and bound all of the pieces in a totally random fashion. I like the look of different sized cards all together. I can't wait to finish the rest of the years now.
 It is so rare that I actually FINISH something on a retreat. I am very pleased with this project.
