Miracle 6x6 Accordion Album Workshop


On June 11th, at 7 pm, we'll be creating this awesome 6x6 accordion album using the National Scrapbooking Month kit Miracle.  It's very easy to create, and for just $20.00 you can make one as a gift or keep for yourself.  If you purchased a Miracle kit and would like to use it for the workshop, then the workshop price is only $15.00.  

These images are of the pages without embellishments-you can choose to stay at the workshop and get all of those done, or complete the basic pages and take them home to finish.  I will teach you how to "shrink" pages from Imagine, Cherish, or Reflections to create your own 6x6 or 9x9 accordion albums.  Also included in the workshop kit is extra chocolate cardstock (per-cut), extra bamboo cardstock, sparkles, the 6x6 album, and the wonderful directions for the workshop (created and shared by Vicki Wiznuik, Canadian consultant).  

You can also order this kit as a Mail Order kit-just add $5.00 to the cost for shipping.  Email or call me for this option.

Please email me or call me at 609-713-2395 to reserve your spot!  I need to know that you're coming by June 8th!  See you soon!

Longwood Gardens

Last Sunday we drove out to SE Pennsylvania to visit Longwood Gardens, and it was just a gorgeous day!  The weather was perfect and the kids had so much fun exploring all the areas of the Gardens.  It was an adventure from start to finish!  Nate's favorite was anything involving water, and Maggie's favorite was actually the exhibit about Scents.  She smelled everything and had pollen on her nose more than once!  I can't wait to scrap these photos-maybe on Studio J!
