If you are interested, please leave a comment below. I need to get a feel for numbers before I book a location.

SCRAPBOOKING 101 - This Saturday

Saturday, October 16

10:30 am
Instructor: Julia
Cost: $20

Have you ever looked at your box of photos and wondered just what to do with it all? Well, scrapbook it is the answer!

Wondering exactly what "Scrapbooking" is?

Well basically, a scrapbook is just a glorified photo album. The difference is that it preserves more than just the photos. A scrapbook includes journaling (telling the story behind the photos) as well as memorabilia (tickets, certificates, letters, you get the idea).

With all the products, papers, adhesives, cutting tools, albums and embellishments on the market, it's natural to feel overwhelmed by it all and give up before even getting started.

In this class, Julia will teach you how to choose and use the tools you need to get started, understand common scrapbooking terms, familiarize you with standard scrapbooking techniques and teach you how to use them while you assemble your first layout.

Bring several 4x6 photos to choose from - both vertical and horizontal - 2 or 3 of the same event or theme.

Basic tool kit is not required for this beginner class - we will provide everything you need except for adhesive. Please bring some with you or you may purchase some before the class begins.

Victoria gets crafty!

Well I think I have made my quota for this year already! I don't usually get very much scrapbooking done throughout the year but for some reason I managed to get 4 layouts and a card done in just a couple of days! What an accomplishment for me! I am also usually a 4 hour per page scrapbooker - perfectionist extraordinaire. I actually managed to get 2 layouts done each day. Granted they don't have pictures yet since they were store/class samples but hey it's a start! Here they are, I hope you like them.
