Match Book Mini Christmas Album, with Bonnie

I love Kaisercraft’s St. Nicholas Collection.  It’s traditional with a touch of vintage.

This marvelous little match book album will be perfect for all those Christmas photos you will be taking this year.  There is room for photos and journaling on every page as well as tags to hold even more photos. 

You will learn a simple technique for binding that will allow you to modify or expand the basic design for future albums you wish to create.

A White Christmas, with Bonnie

These clean and simply elegant cards are designed using white papers and silver mirror papers. I love working with mirror paper but it is truly hard to take pictures of it.  You must see these cards in person to appreciate their real beauty.

In this class you will be playing with snow, glitter and a little Utee (ultra thick embossing enamel) to create these four gorgeous cards.

A class designed for all skill levels.
