Scenes from September Girls' Night Out

Hello, Memory Bound friends! 

If you'd like to jump start your creativity and meet new crafting friends at the same time, you should consider coming to a Girls' Night Out meeting! The group meets once a month for fun and inspiration. We simply bring whatever projects we've been working on during the month to share. It's always interesting and educational to see what everyone has been up to! We also plan special events, including crops, from time to time. Later this month the group is going on a road trip!

If you'd like to see more of what this group has been up to, check out the beautiful Mixed Media projects which are on display at Memory Bound during the month of September. You can read more about them HERE!

At our September meeting, we had a lot of ground to cover...as usual! Fonda always amazes us with her creative endeavors. Here she is giving the group a sneak peek of the project she is making for the recipe circle journal project we're starting next month. She used antique silverware to create a closure!
 Fonda's son is always a delight and often brings projects he's made at home. On this occasion, he showed us a little book about the planets which is sure to inspire a new creative endeavor!

We welcomed back sisters Alisa and Jessica after a busy summer! Alisa brought several great layouts she's created for her family albums. 

 Jessica had made several layouts and also a fun photo tray project using pictures of her son. He's fascinated with rocks and sticks, so she incorporated some into the design!

 Diana brought many new cards she's created for our Staff Studio using one of her newest Cricut cartridges. Diana's little creatures have "Wobbles" under them which enable them to move. If you need a wonderful handmade card, be sure to check out our Staff Studio where you can purchase one for only $4! Read all about it HERE.
 RaNae is always very productive! She brought several projects to share. In the last month, she's made close to 200 cards for Operation Write Home -- amazing work for a great cause. You can read all about Operation Write Home HERE!

RaNae has been busy making lots of layouts for her family scrapbooks, too. This one is about a trip to the Story City Carousel, a central Iowa landmark.

Karen brought some fun projects to share, including a mini-album about her recent trip to Key West...

 ...and another passport style mini-album which highlights all the great trips she's taken.

 Jennifer, one of our newest members, brought several fun projects, cards, and layouts.

She also gave us a sneak peek of her recipe album. We loved the little banner she made with oven mitts!

In addition to these projects, our leader Diane brought the latest mini-album she made for her grandson Gavin. She's making several albums for each grandchild in a variety of themes. Little Gavin is not yet one year old but he's already got a school album ready to go! :) 

We invite you to come spend an evening seeing what Girls' Night Out is all about. Our next meeting is Monday, October 8, 6-7:30. If you'd like to join us, give us a call! It's free, always fun, and very inspiring!
