All You Ever Wanted to Know about Scrapbooking But Were Afraid To Ask.
Time: Saturday 9:00 – 10:00AM
Come and meet our guest designer, Jill Hildebrand--scrapbooker extraordinaire. Bring along an item to share with the group--perhaps an album, mini book, layout, card, altered item etc--that you are proud of and would like to share with the group. Make sure you have your questions handy as Jill will answer whatever questions you have about scrapbooking, techniques and ..............anything else scrapbooking related.

Frame It BIG
Sponsored by: Cut Your Way & Close To My Heart
Time: Saturday 10:15 – 11:45AM
Who ever said size doesn't matter? They never saw this!! Bring your creativity & join Jill's energetic class as you transform a plain MDF frame into a work of art that will showcase a favourite family photo. Using products from both CYW and CTMH, as well as my favourite Gel-a-tins stamps, class participants will learn the technique of layering acrylic stamping with water-based dye ink. After the paint dries & you can stamp no more, finish your Masterpiece with the latest in unique & beautiful vinyl rub-on appliques from Cut Your Way. You will leave this class with a finished 18 inch frame ready for that one special photo. Be the envy of your friends & family when they see your fabulous finished product. Come prepared to get down & dirty with paint and ink, be inspired by other framing creations, and have a blast creating with Jill.

Jill's kits are all hand-chosen for you and are filled with amazing products ? ALWAYS with extras to use later. Trust Jill to come well prepared with goodies to use from her own stash!!
