Out of Print Mini Album, with Maresa



Another date will be added, stay tuned for further details

Continuing my love affair with Basic Grey Out of Print paper... this little album is a marvel. It features all sorts of pockets, tags and flip pages that will fit 4"x6" photos, and the binding is constructed in such a way that your book won't "sit funny" when you fill it up. You won't believe how much you can put into it!

You will learn clever, but insanely simple, techniques that will allow you to modify, expand, and add to the basic design. Before you know it, you will be designing your own albums. There are no rules with this album, and each person will end up with an album that is unique to its creator. As usual, there will be a complete tutorial, chock full of photos, for you to have for future use.

Date: Saturday September 3, 2011 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. ONLY ONE SPACE LEFT
Cost: $50.00

Supplies to bring:

Personal paper trimmer [with a scoring blade if you don't have a Score board]

Be Creative tape [double sided tape]
Hot Glue gun & extension cord [if you have]
Corner rounder [if desired]
Wet and dry adhesive
Scissors
Bone folder
Circle punch [1" - 1- 3/4"]

A snack and a beverage for break-time. This is a long class!
