NEW Class at Perfect Day Scrapbooking - Project Life with Nicole

You've asked for it and here they are!  Class information for some of the upcoming classes at the shop.  As always, if you are not local, we will happily ship kits and instructions to you.  (Some supplies will be available during the class and you will need to provide them.)

Project Life with Nicole

 We are excited to announce..... PROJECT LIFE is HERE!

PROJECT LIFE is the hottest thing in scrapbooking right now & we couldn't be more excited to announce that Perfect Day will be offering a year long series of classes that are based on this easy & totally fun way to organize, document & celebrate the everyday  moments that make up your LIFE!

PROJECT LIFE is a simple, guilt free approach to scrapbooking that was designed to help you complete more pages in less time.  Its 'Core Kits' are filled with graphic page elements, journaling cards & Assorted pocket pages which were designed to take the time consuming guess work out of designing layouts & Focus instead on recording & documenting the things that are truly important....your photos, your stories, your LIFE.  This style of  scrapbooking appeals to everyone; from the beginner to the seasoned expert because it is only as intricate as YOU want it to be.  It can be very simple when you only have time to get the basics recorded but it cam also be more intensive when you have a little more time & creative energy.

And thats where this amazing class comes in!

Once a month, on a lazy Sunday, let's get together & embellish some journaling cards.  Let's learn a fun new technique.  Lets incorporate some other lines, alphabets and embellishments into your books.  Let's sneak a few 12x12 layouts into the mix (you didn't think we'd give them up completely did you?!?)  Let's get together and play!

When: 4th Sunday of each month - Begins August 25th
Time: 10:00 AM
Where: Perfect Day Scrapbooking in Huntington Beach
Price $25 per month plus a one-time purchase of the starter kit
What you get: Your starter kit includes a Project Life 12x12 Binder Album, a Core Kit (which is filled with over 600 element and journaling cards) and a pack of 60 pocket pages.  This kit, if bought individually, retails at $80 and is yours for only $60 when you sign up.

Each month we will get together and make 2 (1) page layouts & 2 pocket page designs.  Your class kits will contain papers and embellishments not only from the core kit line, but also coordinating lines from other manufacturers too!  Your kits will also include layout instructions with full color if you aren't able to make a class, you will still be able to assemble the layouts at home or at a crop.

Space for this class will be extremely limited.  Based on the number of people calling the store inquiring about a Project Life class....we expect spaces to fill quickly.  Call the store ASAP at 714-369*2862 to reserve your spot & Starter Kit today!

So, please don't ever feel that you have to go out and buy something you are not sure you want to invest in yet.
