SoCal sweetness

Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending the day with some creative women at Treasured Memories. The store is located in Oak Park, and because it was a Saturday morning it only took 40 minutes to go 38 miles. This was quite a victory considering some trips to the valley can take double the time. I arrived and immediately set up the washi tape bar (sorry I didn't take a photo of it). Kits were passed out and in 2 hours, the first class completed 2 layouts using some fun techniques like hand-stitching, watercolors, stamping and making sequin tape.There was a little break for lunch where the girls from the store picked up Baja Fresh. I am a big fan of their steak quesadilla. No photo of that either, as it vanished quickly. Some folks stayed for the second class as well. We embellished the cover of a Daybook using more watercolors, stickers, glitter tape, and a button. Thanks to all who came to play that day and Christine for having me! If you're in LA or planning a trip, Treasured Memories is one of the only stores within an hour and I'd highly recommend a visit.

Because it was the last time for me teaching these classes in person, I thought it might be fun to offer the kits online to those who couldn't make it. The 2 page layout kit comes with printed instructions, while the mini book kit is more free flowing and contains no instructions. They're available in the shop now. Internationals: please select the International shipping option and add it to the cart.


I'll be teaching my last local class for the season on Saturday, June 16 at Oh Scrap! in Costa Mesa, CA. Call the store to sign up: (949) 645-3334. 10am - 1pm $55 Mini book + Film Canister class
