Heritage Album (AKA the Page of the Month Album)

Okay's the scoop!

I have moved the 1st class of the Heritage album to the first weekend in February (Feb 4/5) in order to free up some time for CHA projects. Fortunately, we have been working about a month ahead so I can keep things on track. I do still need to get the product ordered this week so that kits can ship out before CHA at the end of January. The second class will be on February 18/19 and will continue thru June on the 3rd Friday & Saturday of the month.

The plan for the class is to take you thru an entire page or pages of the mini, from selecting your paper thru embellishing it each class. There will be a class both Friday night and Saturday morning. The classes will cover the same page(s) of the album but the Saturday class will show how you can use the exact same materials and embellishments but can make the album look very different...such as vintage vs. contemporary or masculine/feminine, etc.

I will have the kits available for PRE-ORDER here on my blog (NOT ON ETSY, I am beginning the transition for Etsy to my new Website). The kits will be $75 + domestic shipping and will include the 6 part Instructions. You will have the option to pay in full or put down a deposit of $35 + domestic shipping. Those who choose the deposit method will be Paypal invoiced for the remainder prior to shipment. Kits paid in full will ship first and the deposited kits will ship upon receipt of the balance. International buyers will be charged the additional international shipping via Paypal invoice prior to shipment. The plan is for kits will begin shipping on January 24.

The kits will include, at a minimum, what is shown in the photo. There are additional items that will be added and there may be minor substitutions subject to availability of product. I have 100 kits available for pre-order. If there is demand for additional kits I will add more, dependent on product availability.

I will also have patterns available for those who wish to use their own papers and embellishments. The pattern will be in 6 parts with a one time payment of $15.00. Each part will be emailed out a week prior to the class so that you have time to gather your materials for class. The pattern in its entirety will not be available until after the last class in June. If you purchase the pattern after the series has started, you will receive all parts available prior to when you ordered. The first section will available on my new website at least a week prior to the first class.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
