Look what we've been up to!

We've had some really amazing classes lately- and look at what we've made in them! Be sure to keep an eye on our class schedule so you don't miss out on the great classes coming up!

Alissa's Acrylic Album is actually made from 12x12 acrylic sheet cut into hot scalloped circles our in-store Die Cut Center! You can cut the sheet into freeform shapes with a craft knife or use any of our die cut shapes in the Accu-cut center to create truly one of a kind albums. Look for more Acrylic Album classes coming up so you can create fun mini books like this with confidence and ease.

Danielle's For the Birds mini book used Pink Paislee paper and the Honeycomb base from Pine Cone Press. Many of you may have seen her store sample "My Girls" and admired the pulled together look of it. If the instructions on the book base leave something to be desired for you, taking a class is the best way to take away the guess work. Complicated (or just complicated looking!) projects become much more manageable in a friendly class environment!

Another class by Danielle was the Flower Topiary workshop. Our class attendees created the larger topiary, but you can see that the technique can be applied to whatever size project you need! These would be absolutely amazing table decorations at a wedding or baby shower! I could see them being stunning for fall or Christmas decor also. What an excellent way to show off some of your favorite papers! (who wants to hide all those gorgeous papers in a book all the time, right?)
