Keep It Simple Saturday

Every day at the store I see a lot of different people working on different projects. What makes a project special? What comes to mind is the mom from "Everybody Loves Raymond" that always talked about the first ingredient in her recipes was love. The love is what made her food so good.

I feel that way about paper crafting projects. It is the love of the photos, maybe the love of knowing the person receiving the project is going to feel or the love of the process. Something kicks up the happiness inside you when you are working on a project.

Each month I teach an OCD class (Owner Creativity Devotion) that features stuff that I love. Stuff that I want to share. Stuff that I simply enjoy. This month's class is a LOVE book. It features paper from We R Memory Keepers. It has tabs and cardstock inserts that spell out LOVE. Bring your photos in for us to complete or bring in your memory card and for an additional fee (small one of $5) we can print out photos for your book.

This class is Saturday Sept 17th starting at 10:30am for $30. Plan on about 2 1/2 hours to put the book together. The chipboard pages, paper and photo mats are all pre-cut. The kit includes some really cute metal (or metalish) embellishments included in the book. The paper and layout are going to do an amazing job of showcasing your photos. Everyone is going to see the love pop out of your book! What makes me "OCD" about this book, besides the simplicity of the page layouts, is a cute trick to put together the metal-looking embellishment on the cover. This will be the best tip of the class!!!

Hope you can make it in and share your love of this wonderful paper crafting hobby.
