Jan, Jan, January

Hey Bloggerettes,

Welcome to the last week of January - if we can get through this month it seems we can tolerate the rest of the winter.  We are expecting some orders this week - yeehaw!   Time to freshen up the place.

Valentines Day is our next holiday and we have 2 projects lined up.  Susan is doing a 3"x3" chipboard 3D cube in mixed media that holds a mini album.  Re-cap 2012 with this cute little project.  It is scheduled for Jan 8 @ 6 PM.

"Amour" mini album by Pink Paislee is also a cute Valentines' keepsake.  It is scheduled for Jan 6 @ 6 PM.
Susan has also created a seasonal series class that starts with "Snow Days".  Each season you will do a mini album showcasing your favorite memories.  The last class will be dedicated to creating a mixed media sleeve to house them all in.  Class is scheduled for Jan 31 @ 6 PM.


Stay tuned for more ideas and "sharesies".  (BTW - anything is a word in scrapbooking!)

Project Life Class

Hi Ladies,

Susan here… Who has heard of “Project Life”?  It is the latest craze in documenting a year of your everyday life.  Each month you summarize the past 30 days of your life, the little things as well as the big moments with pictures ranging from 2X3 – 4X6 as well as journaling cards and other fun goodies.  It is quite simple.   I know you are probably saying “I don’t have time for this”, right?  OK who has a phone with a camera in it?  I don’t know about you but I take a lot of everyday pictures with my phone.  I rarely take my big camera anymore.  I think this can be the perfect marriage, Project Life using pictures taken on my phone!  This sounds do-able.
Does this sound like something of interest to you?  Join me for a year of documenting  your family’s life with this fun new monthly class.  The class with include an album to house your pages.  Contact the store for more details.

I am also teaching two other fun projects.

On January 31 @ 6:00PM I will be teaching a mixed media album called "Snow Days".  This will be the first album in a series of 4.  I will be doing one album for each season that will be housed in a box.  This class is $35.00/member per album with an additional cost for the box.

I will also be teaching a mixed media box album called "Forever & Always" on February 8 @ 6:00PM.
This little album is the perfect Valentine gift or a beautiful keepsake for yourself!
