I can’t believe a week has already passed since our spring BE CRAFTY workshop. It was such a treat to have Maggie Holmes join us here in Minneapolis.  I have been trying to get Maggie to come join us at the studio for awhile now. With a little convincing she agreed. I am so glad she did.


Our theme was vintage books, inspired by Maggie’s paper line with Crate Paper ; OPEN BOOK. We gathered vintage books to decorate the treat table and around the supply book shelf.  We kept things simple using balloons and honeycomb balls from Shop Sweet Lulu to add a few pops of color.

The amazing Melissa from The Faux Martha spoiled us with her amazing handmade confetti sugar cookies. The cookies were stacked high on a cake stand which was placed on the vintage dresser .  Pink lemonade was served along side with pink striped straws.

laughSupplies were placed in baskets and vintage milk glass containers throughout the studio. American Crafts and Crate Paper supplied a variety of the Open book collection papers and accessories for our vintage book turned planner project.
