Create a Summer Photo Album

Now that summer is really with us, it's a great time to start thinking about placing those beach/outdoor pictures on some great layout pages! I am offering a workshop where you will create 10 12x12 layout pages using the exclusive Close to My Heart Footloose paper packet.  The cost of this workshop if $42.00 which includes all papers and embellishments.  If cutting paper stresses you out (it's therapy for some), you can hire me to cut your paper ahead of time by adding $5.00 to your workshop kit price.  Not sure about what adhesive to use? I even have that for $5.00 (Tombow Mono Adhesive-Permanent).
Close-up of embellishments

When can you make these wonderful pages?  I am offering two separate workshops - Wed., July 18 and Wed. July 25 from any time you want to start after 5:00 PM until ????   OR Saturday, August 4 at 10:00 am until ?????   (Light snacks provided - meals on your own.)

Invite your friends to join you!  Supplies must be ordered and paid for one week prior to workshop date (July 11 and July 28) to ensure delivery.  (This paper kit will not be available after July 31st.)

(This Workshop has been designed by my talented fellow CTMH Consultant Tresa Black
