Jessica Guthrie
See photo in Jessica's post below

About Jessica G:
Introduced to scrapbooking in 1998 at a Yuma, Ariz., workshop, Jessica immediately jumped into the scrapbook craze with both feet. With a bachelor's degree in photojournalism, scrapbooking just was a natural fit for her, allowing her creative side to flourish along with the factual storytelling. After discovering the "new" three-
dimensional embellishments that were hitting the market in early 1999, Jessica branched out from her original style and began seeking out the latest products, styles and techniques.

Jessica was recently selected as the winner of the Creative Escape Treasure Hunt for a Teacher contest and will be teaching an acrylic album class at this national event in Mesa, AZ, in September.
Last year, Jessica launched Kits2Remember, a scrapbook idea site and online store that focuses on the latest techniques used with mini albums and home d├ęcor projects. She scrapbooks about 10 hours a week, attending crops, conventions and workshops regularly & teaching technique-driven classes at dozen scrapbook stores around California. She loves sharing the hobby with others - and turning hobbyists into addicted enthusiasts!
Jessica is an Orange County, Calif., native, and is wife to Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant and air traffic controller Rodney, mother to two boys, Will, 6 and Xan, 2, and owner to three boxer dogs, Slade, Marble and Ripley.

About This Class:

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! 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.


All of the vendors/teachers represented at Desert Scrappers Weekend Retreats are independent of Desert Scrappers and are independently responsible for all of their products, services and actions. Thank you

Offered Saturday May 31st 9:30am- 5:30pm
