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.
