Saturday, March 19: 10:30 to 4:30: Prima Educator Days @ Checkered Cottage, Kirkwood MO

As a Prima Marketing Educator, I will be periodically adding workshops at Checkered Cottage featuring Prima Marketing products. This month's project is a mini-book using Frank Garcia's Memory Hardware 6x6 mini-book and combining it with Nature Garden papers, flowers and embellishments. You'll be choosing some of your cover embellishments so no two books will be exactly alike. 

Supplies Needed: Basics (see top of the blog) plus small paintbrushes to color images on the front cover. I used rounds #4 and #6.  Distress Ink pads: Antique Linen. Gold leaf pen. (palette knife not needed. I'm losing my mind.)

Check back before each class to make sure I didn't forget anything on your supply list!
