Brook Canvas Wall Hanging

canvas wall hanging
August 26th at 6:30 The Keepsake Element
cost: $25

Learn a fun and unique way to display a photo on your wall. We're going to take basic blank canvas and turn it into a page you can display in your home. No advanced sewing skills are required. Anyone can do this! We'll be using papers and accents from Crate Paper's fabulous Brook line. Can be adapted to fit in a scrapbook as well.

Please bring a favorite 5x7 photo to class along with a sewing needle, white craft glue (such as Aleene's), scissors, and tape runner. And if you have these items, please bring them as well (not required): circle tool or punch for 2.5" circles, paper piercer, pinking shears or fabric scissors, metal ruler with quilting rotary cutter and mat, Ranger glossy accents, and scalloped circle punch.

Call or stop in the store to sign-up.

stargazer lilies

stargazer lilies

The entire kitchen smells like these right now and it is wonderful! I find myself spending more time in the kitchen just so I can smell them—browsing the newest issue of Martha Stewart Living and enjoying our new tabletop as well. Stargazer lilies are my all time, number one, favorite flower. …and I even grew these myself!

P.S. Information on my next class at The Keepsake Element is coming soon.
