All About Easy: December Gems

If you’re anything like me, Scrapbooking is my sanity. When times are busy and holidays come around, scrappin’ becomes even more important to me as “Stress Management!” When times are packed with things to do, we need our hobby, and still want to get a little bit accomplished, right? We have the answer this December! Scrapbooker’s Club House proudly announces the December 2008 “All About Easy: December Gems” featuring stress-free scrappy-projects posted by Guest Contributors! Starting on Tuesday December 2, twice per week, you will be shown a fun and easy project (“a gem”) that you can create in 1 hour or less. Not all projects will have a holiday theme. There will be nothing complicated or convoluted: this feature will have you completing some easy projects even though times are busy!! Check out the Online Classes Forum: that’s where you’ll find the “December Gems” that allow you to create in ways that enhance your stress management! Here’s the link to the Forum: Simple is good. Be sure to join us at Scrapbooker’s Club House on Tuesdays and Saturdays from Dec 2-20 for the “All About Easy: December Gems” feature. See you there! (Link to SBCH homepage : ) Questions?
