Beach 9X9 Accordian Album Workshop


This workshop is one I designed using the retired 9X9 accordian album.  What a great way to show off a beach trip or summer pictures.  The title can be changed to read beach or summer (just let me know.)  The workshop will be on Monday Aug 13th at Abby G’s or Friday Aug. 17th at my shop – both start at 6 pm.  I only have 15 albums and I already have 11 signed up.  So let me know ASAP if you would like to attend or buy a kit.  Instructions are included so you do not have to attend the workshop to get this album.  The cost is $25.00  We are using the Footloose paper and Dimensional Elements.


Dotty for You Mega Workshop Sat. Aug. 4th


Saturday, August 4th – Mega Workshop using the Dotty for You paper.  We will make 8 layouts and start at 9pm (yes 8, I did say Mega Workshop!) The workshop will be at my shop behind my house.  Everyone is to bring a dish to share for lunch.  The kit will have full instructions, so you can leave at anytime.  I only have 15 kits and 12 of the kits are already called for so if you would like to come to the workshop or get a kit, let me know ASAP.  This is an amazing workshop.  Oh, I will also give away a Close to My Heart Album and the new amazing catalog! The catalog is AWESOME! The layouts were design with some minor adjustments by consultants Julie Carriere and Joanne Walton.  The cost of the workshop is $35 if you already have the Dotty for You paper pack or $45 if you don’t.  Just bring your paper pack with you to the workshop to swap out with a pack I have already cut out for you.  When your through just add pictures and you just about have an entire album!!

I have finally sort-of made a blog!!


I have been wanting to do this for a long long time.  I would love to share ideas and photos of cards and scrapbooking items I have made.  I also needed a way to give details on upcoming workshops.  I am still trying to get everything figured out so please be patient. But I am on my way and look forward sharing ideas!!  Please subscribe to the right so that we can stay in touch.
