A Love Like No Other  NEW CLASS!  NEW INSTRUCTOR!

Instructor: Sonja McLean

Class Fee: $15.00  Supply Fee: $5.00

Introducing Sonja's first class at Precious Memories featuring paper from Imaginisce "Loves Me" line. Sonja will show you how to make the most of your patterned paper using texture and shape. This 12x12 layout features three layers of dimension, Glossy Accents, stamping, and hand-sewing (don't worry...it's nothing fancy!). If you'd like to print photos ahead of time, they measure 5.5 w x5" and 3.75 w x4" ...but they don't have to be that exact size.

All Supplies Included.

 

 

We are very pleased to add Sonja Mclean to our list of talented Instructors!
Sonja started scrapbooking four years ago while on maternity leave with her second child, and has never looked back. Her husband, four children and puppy give her lots of inspiration and motivation to get those layouts done. Currently a stay-at-home mom, she spends her days dreaming up sketches and playing with patterned paper. Sonja designs for Pageframe Designs, was the September guest designer for Fontwerks, and her published work can be seen in Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbook & Cards Today, Canadian Scrapbooker, Card Creations and Cards Magazine. For more about Sonja, visit her blog at www.thebookersclub.typepad.com/bookerbaby.

 

 

Sonja is a featured designer in the current issue of
Canadian Scrapbooker's "Passport to Creativity" column
(page 94/95 of the Winter 2007-2008 issue)
