April's "In The House" Class Celebrates Easter with Moxxie!

I found the cutest little vintage Easter images on imported chocolate candy wrappers...and they are perfect for this month's In The House project!  Join me as we create this Home Dec shadow box... ...which will then morph into this fabulous 2 page layout using  papers from Moxxie's new Easter-themed line!
Techniques include some cutting and embossing with a Cuttlebug, heat embossing, chalking and inking. We will also be using a Dymo label maker for journaling...egg hunts, new clothes, Easter baskets...or you can customize to match your own family traditions. You must bring your own Versamark ink pad (Debbie will have some on hand if you do not yet own this versatile stamp pad.). Bring your craft knife and cutting mat, pop dots, regular adhesive, ruler, paper cutter, red line tape and a pencil. Tuesday April 6th 11a-2p or 69-9p. No kits. Call the store to register.(703)263-9503...and I look forward to seeing you in class!

Scrapbooking Classes are...

...great mother and daughter time....(welcome to ITH Jennifer!)... ...using Pat's elements as the class "example" (she really doesn't mind!) ;)...
...accepting that no matter what I design, Diane is just going to do her own thing - and it always looks great...
...so fulfilling because I know that I can count on Jerri to always finish her house and send me a picture when it is hanging on her wall!

Page Map 1

Look what I can do! I can make a page map! I was playing around in Photoshop today, after visitng the Jessica Sprague website for inspiration, and I used the Custom Shape Tool to create this page map. It was actually pretty easy and I think I will make more...but I now feel compelled to do a layout with it...off to find the right pictures and papers...
