Keeping Track of Life (KTOL) 


Instructor : Krista Wells

Are you looking for a way to combine your love of scrapbooking layouts with Project Life-style scrapbooking? Are you looking to feel ‘caught up’ or ‘on track’ at the end of your year? Come join Krista for Keeping Track of Life – a class that combines the best of both worlds, scrapbooking layouts + pocket page scrapbooking. At the end of the 12 month calendar year you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment having scrapbooked each month. Our layouts will focus on one special event from your month and we’ll use our pocket pages to tell our stories of everyday life. We’ll literally be ‘Keeping Track of Life’ for 2016. With a new, more manageable size, 8 1/2 by 11, we’ll be creating double page layouts – perfect for lots of pictures of that special event – and combining it with a pocket page to document those everyday stories. Carve out two hours of your month to get those photos into your album! Come join us for KTOL (Keeping Track of Life)!

List it or Lose it * new class!

Instructor: Rae Lynn O’Keefe

In the grand scheme of our busy lives we often jot down lists to track various aspects of our life. We write to-do lists, grocery lists, vacation-planning lists, bucket lists, gift-giving lists, list of goals, etc.  These in and of themselves are a form of memory keeping. Join Rae Lynn as she teaches a class that incorporates list making in a 6×8 album. Every other month, you will complete two list layouts (for a total of four 6×8 pages) helping you to document snippets of your life in a more permanent fashion. The lists ideas are endless…from the everyday mundane things to life-long goals/wishes and everything in between.

Note: Class kit: $78.00 (Kit purchase required for class enrollment) *Requires a minimum number of participants for class commitment. Class Cost: $30 Members $60 Non-Members

Book of Me


Instructor: Rae Lynn O’Keefe

Capturing our family life is important, but if you’re the one documenting everyone else, how will your family or children remember your favourite colour, movie, food, or your daily routine, what makes you happy or sad? This layout series is bi-monthly and will help you capture a little bit about yourself, and make you think about and share “your everyday things to the heartfelt things.” We will make two layouts in each class, which will include at least one photo of yourself, or a photo that means something to you, and some handwritten journaling to express how you feel about the layout topic.

Note: Requires a minimum number of participants for class commitment.Cost: $40 Members $80 Non-Members

Make Mine Mixed Media


Instructor: Cathie Reed

This class encourages scrapbookers to stretch their creativity to make artistic layouts that are the perfect canvas for their photos and memories.  We will combine the principles of traditional scrapbooking with products usually found in an artist’s studio to create two unique mixed media 12×12 layouts.

Note: Requires a minimum number of participants for class commitment.  Cost: $35 Members $70 Non-Members

It’s a Little Bit Messy *new class

Instructor: Sara Case Strickland

Join Sara for a brand new class and get just “A Little Bit Messy!” True to her signature style you’ll make two not-so-messy mixed media LO’s while learning some new, and remembering some old, fun and exciting techniques. In a twist on previous classes, this one will focus on more than one photo and how to make, alter, or use up embellishments. Sara will also provide tips on how she scraps her year and documents her memories each month. No core kit is required for this class but a personal “from your stash” kit list will be provided prior to the start date. Also, no prior mixed media experience is necessary and most supplies will be available in class to try before you buy!
