National Scrapbooking Day Retreat!

I don't totally consider myself a "scrapbooker". Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to collect scrapbooking supplies and look at scrapbooking magazines over and over, but, I can make a layout and then not do any "scrapbooking" for several days or weeks. And I've never "celebrated" National Scrapbooking Day. Ever.

That being said, I do like to preserve memories and be artistic in the process. So this year I thought I would "celebrate" National Scrapbooking Day. And make it a party!

May 1, National Scrapbooking Day, will be a day like no other for me before and I'd love to have you join me!

Retreat Description:

Our lives are more than just birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions. They are mostly made up of everyday, seemingly routine events that make us who we are. So we will make a 62-page, 4 x 6 mini album entitled "Our Month in Moments". This album will document those everyday moments in your family's life that will be a treasure for many years to come. Let me say that again: It's going to be 4 x 6 album so there won't be any photo cropping or resizing! Just take a photo a day for one month, print out your photos in the 4 x 6 size and add them to your completed album! Easy!! Combine all that with fun and laughter, plus lunch and you have one great event! You don't need to consider yourself a "scrapbooker" to totally enjoy this project. :)


Date: Saturday, May 1, 2010
Time: 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Cost: $40.00
Place: My house

Your tuition will cover:

6 sheets of 12 x 12 kraft cardstock
1 Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up! marker
1 The Write Stuff Scrapbooking Kit (Kit includes 3 textured sheets of die-cut journaling spots and 6 -12 x 12 double-sided pieces of coordinating patterned paper)
2 book binding rings
A *BONUS* project - a coordinating hand-made card.
PLUS: You will have plenty of supplies left over to make other scrapbook pages and/or cards at home and ideas on how to use them!


We will be using the Big Shot machine and Texture Plates to add dimension to our album covers and paper strip elements. Such a fun and easy detail that packs a decorative punch!

What you need to bring to the retreat:
*your favorite adhesive (I will have glue sticks available, but I find for albums that will be handled frequently, glue sticks don't work quite as well. If you don't have appropriate adhesive, you are more than welcome to use my glue sticks or let me know and I can order you some adhesive before the retreat.)
*a paper trimmer (you will be trimming all of your pages and elements so the more paper trimmers we have, the faster the album and card will come together!)
NOTE - You don't need to bring photos to class. You will be completing that part of the album at home during the month you choose.

Optional Add ons:

For an additional charge, you may order the Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads (a sample of these is shown on the album cover, in the center of the flower, in the picture below) and the Assorted Clips (as shown on the "11" page below). If you want this option, please let me know at the time you register.

As always, **PAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF REGISTRATION**. NO REFUNDS, PLEASE. Registration and PAYMENT deadline is April 23, 2010, BUT, if you register and pay by April 16, I will take $5 off your class tuition PLUS I'll include 3 yards of ribbon for you to use on your mini album! There are only 8 more spots open for this class so don't wait. Register today!

Be's good for you!

P.S. This album would make a great and unique gift! Imagine giving this as a wedding gift to let the newlyweds document their first month of marriage. Or to new parents to celebrate the first month of their new family. Or how about as a house-warming gift to the happy family to document their first month in their new house....They will LOVE you for it!!
