Fall and Christmas are my favorite times of year. I love the chilly weather, the baking, the decorations, the many reasons and occasions for the family to come together….it is a joyful time!

“Joyful Seasons” is my Christmas mini album this year. We will be creating this book 100% from scratch using chipboard, paper,the Bind It All, and book binding tape. We'll also be machine sewing vintage book diecuts, gilding everything in Metallic Kim Gold (my fave paint color) and layering lots of embellies, diecuts, and goodies. If you have a favorite book or holiday sheet music you would like to use, bring it to class. I will also have on hand some pages from vintage books you can use as well.
