Let's be Creative Together

One of my goals this year is to create and alter with purpose using materials I have readily on hand. With that said I ask you, what are you going to do with all the paper, beads, buttons and ribbons you have? I suggest you make a scrapbook album, greeting card or maybe even a piece of jewelry.

This month in the Greeting Card Club we are making journals out of composition notebooks. Yes, plain old composition notebooks can be transformed into beautiful, useful journals. You could even give them as gifts. Here is a journal made by one our greeting card members, Cheryle Carter. She intends to use hers at a conference.

You can make this project too!

When: This Saturday, January 16th

10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
