Fun Flip Album by Kim

My goofy family
I am really looking forward to teaching this class.  And when I say "teach" I am using the term somewhat loosely.  There will be some teaching going on where I will share some of my tips and tricks for pulling together a great album. But really this is going to be a free style class where there will be some items cut for you (like the basic backgrounds - all using papers from Basic Grey) but there will be tons of others goodies supplied for you to add and design as you may.  You will certainly get your money's worth!

Oh.  Did I mention this is a flip album where we will be working with Teresa Collin's 6x6 albums?  You pull the little tab on the right hand side and the pages "flip" for you!  It is adorable and will make a great gift!  The papers we are using are very versatile and lend themselves well for any photos really not just those taken in fall (or with shot guns!).  Ha!

8 pages to decorate PLUS the covers
and a secret pocket at the back for journalling
Date:  Friday, November 7
Time:  6-9PM
Cost:  $25+hst
Please bring your paper trimmer, scissors and adhesive
All other supplies are included!  Did I mention you get a cupcake or cookie too!?!

The best part about this class is that in 3 hours you will walk out of here
with a completed project ready for the coffee table or for gift giving!
