Well, we couldn't just do something at north side Hobby Lobby and not do something at south side Hobby Lobby, could we? Noooo, so this Saturday we will be at the south side Hobby Lobby from 11a to 3p working on some more make-n-takes perfect for a last minute Mother's Day gift! We will also have the Greatest Mom Mother's Day 6x6 mini-album project available as a kit. It includes everything you need plus the instructions to put it together in about an hour and a half. It's a great gift for Mother's Day, but can be a great gift anytime. All it needs are your pictures! And if you are wondering how to spiff up those old pictures, visit our sister site, for classes on using Photoshop Elements to fix your pictures!

Here are pictures of our Saturday make-n-takes and the album project.
Our first make-n-take is a Matchbook Album made using the new Bazzill Bling Cardstock, the Pocket-Full-of-Posies glitter pad, Paper Studio Pastel Flower brads, a Sizzix bookplate die and some garden department butterflies! We'll use the Crop-a-dile with this project, so if you haven't had a chance to get your hands on one, now is the time to see how easy it is to use! Cost for this project is $3.

The second make-n-take is the Initial Flower Accordian Album using the Old World paper pad and matching self-adhesive ribbon, a bit of chipboard for the covers, a chipboard flower, Paper Studio letters and some inking techniques. Just add pictures! Several different colors available. This project costs $2.

The third make-n-take is the BFF booklet (Best Friends Forever). This is for the girls! It has a crystal flower and lots of fibers and some more of that sparkly Pocket-Full-of Posies paper and some Bling Card Stock. This book is perfect for putting all those small pictures in from school! Your girls will love it! Cost for this project is $1.

The forth make-n-take is a Mother's Day card. This is a quick project and free, and the card will fit in a standard invitation envelope.

Supplies for all of the projects are limited and the first project will start at 11:30a. We also have a limited number of the Mother's Day Mini Albums, so get there early!

Mother's Day Mini Album Kit—$14
This 6x6 mini album features the My Minds Eye papers, Prima paper flowers, Swarovski Crystals, some glitter glue, and quotes about mothers with corresponding Bible verses. There are four spreads for you to put pictures of your mom to make it special. A little aging around the papers and loads of ribbons and fibers on the binder rings make this a beautiful, finished project. Complete instructions come with the kit. All you need is adhesive, silver glitter glue, copper glitter glue and a brown chalk pad for inking edges.

We're going to be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day at Hobby Lobby north side this Saturday from 11am to 4pm. We will have a table set up to demonstrate some of the cool new tools they have just received as well as showing off some of the other new products they are carrying. They now have the Phoebe line of Basic Grey papers, the Bazzill Bling and Cardstock with an Edge cardstock packages (on sale this week half off—a steal compared to the local scrapbook store prices!), along with Glitter Pads, the new Ribbon Iron and other new products.

We will also be doing Make-N-Takes during this time. We have some cute stuff lined up, some with a Mother's Day theme, a MBFF mini book (your daughters will know what this means)—so something for the girls, and other items. You know me, no telling what I'll use. Some of the projects are free and others run $1 to $3. There will be a sign up sheet at the tables. We will be situated back by the scrapbooking aisles, so come find us. If I have time, I'll post the make-n-take projects, but no promises! Time is of the essence...
