January Parent & Me Workshop - Mini Accordion Scrapbook

I'm excited to announce January's Parent & Me Workshop - a mini accordion scrapbook album.  This is a great introduction to scrapbooking for children.  The album is 6" x 6" and unfolds to approximately 24".  When unfolded, the album can stand on its own to be displayed. 
The album uses the Chantilly Paper and accessories for a fun floral look.  My daughter designed our album as a Mom & Me book, but this can be done with almost any theme - cousins, sisters, friends, etc.  When folded together, a beautiful deep red ribbon keeps the album closed.
Here are the first four pages of the unfolded album.  Once again, my daughter helped design the pages of this album.  I provided her with choices, and she selected what color paper to cut the cricut shapes out of, which stamps (all are from the Happy Thoughts stamp set that coordinates with the Chantilly paper) and ink colors to use, and where to adhere her embellishments.
The other four pages of the album. 
Just to give you an idea of the thickness of the album, the front and back covers are heavy duty cardboard.  This protects the album from become bent, and also allows it to stand on its own when unfolded.
Here are a few pictures of my daughter creating her scrapbook album.  Here she is adhering the letters to her cover page.  The title can be altered based on the theme of your book.
She carefully stamped the leaf image on the corner piece.  I had in mind to use the small flower shape, but she wanted to use the leaf image.  It turned out much better than my suggestion :-)  Once again, CTMH's My Acrylix stamps and blocks allow for easy placement of stamped images - very kid friendly!
She selected the flying blue bird embellishment, from the Chantilly Dimensional Elements pack, for the corner of her picture.
Once all her pages were designed, she spent some time deciding placement within her album.  She put serious thought into what pictures and papers looked best next to each other!


The cost of this workshop is $20 and includes a 6" x 6" accordion scrapbook, all materials needed to decorate the scrapbook (all papers will be pre-cut), and use of stamps and inkpads.  Some embellishments may vary in color or shape.  You will need to bring 8 pictures that can be trimmed (or are pre-trimmed) to 4" x 4" size. 

The workshop is designed for children ages 6 & up along with their caregiver, and will be held on Sunday, January 26th at 2:00pm.  Light refreshments will be provided. Space is limited, so purchase your kit today to reserve your space!  The RSVP and payment deadline is January 14th to ensure timely arrival of all materials.
Not local to the area, contact me to purchase the kit (with an added fee for S & H) so you can create your own version at home!  If you'd like to add the stamped images to your scrapbook, the stamp set and ink must be purchased separately.  I am happy to help you out via e-mail or phone with any questions you may have.
