Le'Romantique E-Z Fold Mini Album, with Maresa





Everybody has been ooh-ing and ah-ing over this beautiful little mini album. You will not believe the amount of space available in this little treasure for journaling, photos, keepsakes and such. Each page has pockets and flip-flops, cleverly integrated into the page design. It is also expandable if you wish to use it for an event where more pages are required.

This album features the fabulous and elegant Graphic 45 Le'Romantique paper, making this mini album the perfect choice for everything from Weddings, Heritage, to your Mom's birthday.

*If you can't attend the class, kits are available for sale.*

Because this album is time intensive, and CANNOT be completed in one short class, in addition to the fact that we are trying to keep the cost of the class as low as possible, please read on for the special instructions regarding this project.

Special Instructions:

1. Templates will be emailed out to class participants AT LEAST TWO days prior to the class. It is the student's responsibility to PRINT OFF these templates and BRING THEM to class. Contact the store if the email doesn't show up in your inbox!

2. Because of this NO REFUNDS will be offered. Any student unable to attend the class may pick up their kits at the store. The kit includes a step-by-step photo tutorial, assorted paper cutting layout guides, and photos so the project may be completed at home easily.

3. During the class we will only have time to start on the cover and complete ONE of the four interior pages. The remaining three pages are, technique-wise, duplicates of the first page. Students are welcome to stay in the classroom and work independently until 4:00 p.m. Maresa will be in the store working, and time allowing, can assist as needed. Alternately, you may go home and finish the album using the photo tutorial and the other provided resources.
