"Sunny Days" Childhood Summer House Album Starts TODAY!

Hi, everyone! Today's the big day ~ we're starting the "Sunny Days" Childhood Summer House Album UStream series! Thank you all so much for your patience as we worked to get all the albums out to everyone in time for the class.

I will be using the Pink Paislee "Hometown Summer" paper collection throughout the album. Here is the sample front cover I created for my album:

I will start the album during my UStream show this afternoon and continue working on it during my regular Thursday UStream shows. I am live every Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and again from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on my UStream Channel: Live on the {Scrap}Beach.

All times are Eastern USA {Miami/New York}. To convert to your time zone, click here: Time Zone Converter.

I also uploaded a video overview of the front cover on my YouTube channel for you to see. It also includes the supplies I've gathered for the album, so you can get an idea of what I'll be using. You can watch the video below, or over on YouTube by clicking this link: Hometown Summer Supplies + Front Cover.

This chipboard album has been retired. If you're interested in purchasing one, please email us at

  1. Can't wait to start - will you post a you tube of the last pages for the butterfly garden album? I think it is one of my favorite mini's ever. Mary Werner

  2. That was a wonderful time we had today on Ustream Kathryn
    The little house album is really lovely!
    thank you for all the work you do!
    great fun
    Cheers Deni

  3. Hi, Mary! Yes, I will definitely post a YouTube video of the Butterfly Garden mini album once it is finished! :D It's one of my favorite minis, too!

    You're so welcome for the class, Deni! I am so glad you enjoyed yourself!

  4. Will you have anymore of the house albums available? Thanks!

  5. I won't have any additional houses available in the immediate future - they are sold out for now. I do have other projects planned for this die down the road & they will be for sale again shortly before those projects start.
