Ever After Scrapbooks

Join Jennifer Priest of Scrapbook Royalty for a wonderful * Prima Certified * class! We'll be creating a Princess-themed, crown-shaped, mini book with acetate covers using the Zutter Bind It All and Prima's yummy Morning Song paper line. The book is filled with glittery details such as Prima's Say It In Crystals, Center Kisses, of course, flowers! Jennifer will have a Prima Festive Flower and Glimmer Mist bar set up to customize your blooms in the class. You'll also receive an entire set of Prima chipboard alphabets in the class!

This class is also part of a new “mini-event” Scrapbook Royalty is doing called “Royalty On The Road”! The goal of these “Royalty On The Road” events is to help raise money and awareness for charities within local communities in Southern California. So many groups ask us for help and we simply cannot organize large-scale events for them all. These “mini-events” allow us to help local charities as well as partner with local scrapbooking and papercrafting stores.

Everyone who comes to the class will receive a goodie bag. Everyone who comes to the store during the class will receive a “Fairy Fly-By”, a little goodie from Scrapbook Royalty, just for stopping by. We will also have two raffle baskets we'll be raffling off to benefit a local charity.
