As the scrapbook instructor at my local Michael's Arts and Crafts store I made these items for demo on the Open House Day September 10th, 2011 from 1 to 3 PM. I hope they bring an interest to the beginners, intermediate and advanced scrappers and hopefully sign up for some classes. There will also be classes for the Martha Stewart Punch Around paper punches and glitter. I see more fun in my future. If you're in the Rio Grande, NJ area please stop in and say hi.
