Journaling Session FOUR- Sisterhood & Little Sisters

Sisterhood Session FOUR is Sunday, March 25.  Little Sisters Session FOUR is, April  8 (no class Easter Sunday). Please let me know if/when you will not be attending any session.


  1. Finish installing your scrappy tags and the six spreads designed for the last session.
  2. Begin designing another six spreads.  Remember to create one fold-over page edge and one wrap-around page edge in each signature.  Use the oxide paper and die cuts created for/at last session.  Make more oxide ink paper as needed.  If you are comfortable with your spreads, please go ahead and affix.  If you would like my input, just clip them to the page and ask me for review time.
  3. Begin using the sister share items in your spreads if they work, please don’t force anything.
  4. Finish collecting share items for sisters using the shared information sheet distributed  (such as stamps, die cuts, images … any tidbit that goes with their theme & colors).
  5. Bring your list of chapter/signature/journal titles and/or words you would like Cherri to typeset; or do them yourselves.
