Details about the Theresa Collins/Acrylic/Bind-it-All class

Whew! I finally got the sample done and photographed for you guys! I LOVE this project because it is so versatile and you will learn a lot of skills and techniques in one class sitting! Just to recap, I will be teaching an acrylic mini-book class featuring Theresa Collin's new line of paper, "Journal-It," fabric paper, StazOn ink, Tim Holtz rubber stamps and more! Then we'll bind it all together with the Bind-it-All, using matching o-wire! This is a great class for anyone who wants to learn new techniques with the Bind-it-All and acrylic, especially rubber stamping on acrylic! And the project features calendar grids on each page spread. So, you can use this as a year-in-review album, a birthday reminder book, or journal, such as an event or weight loss journal. I only have 24 seats available for this $20 class, so be sure to sign up early! If you would like to pre-register before the event, send an email with your name, email address and phone number to: jessica@kits2remember.com. Sign ups will be taken at the crop if space is still available.

Plus, I will also be vending at the crop. Anyone who takes my class will get a 15 percent off discount on their entire purchase at my booth the weekend of the crop. Want to make sure I definitely bring something you're looking for? Order ahead of time and I will bring it with me to the crop! Pre-orders receive a 10 percent off discount by using code MayDS. Be sure to designate Will Call so you won't be charged shipping! At the crop, I will have Bind-it-All supplies, acrylic, chipboard, crop supplies like adhesives, Stickles, paint dabbers and small embellishments, just to name a few! Take a look at my web site www.kits2remember.com to see what K2R carries...

Complimentary Facials by Andrea

Who couldn’t use a little break from all that hard scrapbooking work to have a complimentary facial? I’ll make you feel like a million $$, and you head back to your table refreshed and ready to scrap the night away! Plus you will learn some skincare and anti-aging tips to take home with you. We will finish with some makeup to replace what you took off, in some very complimentary colors picked out just for your skin tone. I’ll teach you some tips for applying your makeup as well. I’m a scrapbooker myself, and I know how hard we all work on our albums. Laura has been gracious enough to allow me to come and pamper you. Make your weekend retreat an opportunity to relax and be refreshed!

Sign up early for the facial appointment on Saturday only…they will fill up fast and space is limited to guarantee that all your questions are answered. Plus, a bonus gift will be given to all my appointment attendees.

Check out my website at www.marykay.com/writetodre if you want to order something ahead of time and I’ll have it there for you. Otherwise, my special will be free shipping on all orders over $25, placed at Laura’s retreat AND a free gift with any $40 purchase.
