April Club Layout

We will be meeting for our scrap night and hostess club on Friday, April 23rd at 6:00 PM at the First United Methodist Church in Cleveland. We will be creating this layout featuring our new Veranda Paper Pack. Our new techniques this month will include dry embossing(scoring) with inking, folded corners, and scrunched ribbon. Our featured colors will be Crème Brulee, Juniper, and Cocoa. If you have any of the ink pads (especially, cocoa) or a dry embossing tool and paper cutter, please be sure and bring it with you! We will be using the Picture Perfect, Cherished Flourishes, and Journaling Jots stamp sets. The cost of each 2 page layout is $5 to cover the cost of the supplies. Please come join us for an evening of fun and scrapping. Bring a friend and receive a prize! Please RSVP EARLY so that I can have everything ready for you! Thanks!!
