Simple Pleasures Bookbinding Class Recap

Monday, May 20, 2019

Last Saturday I taught a bookbinding class at Simple Pleasures in Colorado Springs!
First of all, this store is literally heaven on earth.
My very first job was at a scrapbooking store just like this in Redmond, WA.
Aisles and aisles of papers and embellishments as far as the eye can see. 
It reminded me of the good ol' days and I am so flippin' gosh dern happy that these stores do exist still because as you know most have closed. 
Support the local scrapbook store!
They have new product like my Horizon collection:
As well as vintage supplies you can't find anymore like Basic Grey and Rusty Pickle:
I even found some of my Fancy Free collection - my very first line with Pink Paislee from a few years ago!
Ribbons & trims in a rainbow of colors.
Inks galore.
And the store is ORGANIZED SO WELL! Signs on the wall tell you which theme/holiday/section you can find there like the seasons, holidays, even an entire military section which is great with the huge base nearby. 
Can't forget Disney and Harry Potter too!
 Planner corner.
Cardstock swoon!
 More views of the store:
 I taught a bookbinding course to 16 lovely ladies from around the area and everyone walked away with a handmade book.
 Almost finished!
 My favorite part is lining up the books to see them all together.
 If you are ever in Colorado this Simple Pleasures store is a MUST! I even think it's worth planning a road trip just to visit, it's that awesome!
Hope to be back soon to teach more classes!
