Retro Theme Domestic Goddess Pocket Page Deluxe Mini Album Kit **SOLD**

This is one of the mini album pages we created in one of the "Pick-A-Pocket" Mini Album Series of Classes.
This kit is fashioned after the Vintage Retro Domestic Goddess theme rather than the cookbook them that I made in the class. The album pages measure 8-1/8"x6" plus the tab binding.
This kit is packed with almost everything you will need to create this fun album! The instructions and patterns will of course be inclosed with your kit. I will be making a DVD on this mini album in the very near future so that you can make this mini in a very understandable step by step process with me. I have only "ONE" of these kits available. The cost of the kit is $49.00 with the shipping included!
Thank you so much for your interest and comments of how I can better my kits, classes, or anything else to be a better help to you.

The last 5 or 6 weeks? We have been making some "new" album pages that I have designed entitiled my "Pick A Pocket" Mini Album Page Series!! I have really enjoyed sharing my new creations with all of those who have had the opportunity to attend!!  
Last week we started the 8x8 inch pocket styled mini album in a baby boy theme.  We will continue working on this album style as well as learning together how to make special add-ons for your album pages. I really hope to wrap this second part up tomorrow night, but if not, we will continue it into one more class.
I am posting a necessities list below for those of you who would like to take part during the class.
*You will need the following items:
* 5-9x12 inch self-sealing envelopes
* 3- regular mailing envelopes
* decorative papers in at least an 8x8 inch size and
of course matching cardstock
* various punches
* several matching ribbons from 1/4" to 1/2" in size
* buttons
* something for ribbon flower center
This is all I can think of right now. If there are any changes I will do an update here.
