Mini Book Workshop 2016 | April Foster

Capture a year in review from a whole new angle. Join April Foster and our partner Mixbook to create a one-of-a-kind book of your family's most important moments. Going. Playing. Making. The stories your book will hold are all centered around actions, inspiring you to focus on your memories in a different way. In this workshop, we'll walk through the process of making a photo book with Mixbook and include tips on everything from choosing photos to using the Mixbook editor (and students will receive a special promo code for ordering their own!). Then, we'll take that photo book and turn it into a unique keepsake with simple techniques, like stamping, pockets, and peek-a-boo windows.

Please note: This class originally ran in February of 2016. By enrolling now, you'll have access to all of the class material immediately and will be able to access the class message board to view previous comments. However, the message board and gallery will not be monitored by an instructor.

April Foster

At age four, April became an paper crafter  by making and selling handmade greeting cards at her dad's hardware store. They were nothing more than crayon drawings on typing paper, but she loved every second of it. Her love of business and paper goods led her to found Studio Calico in 2007.  She built an infrastructure dedicated to the curation and design of innovative products, combined with inspiration and education, delivered to customers via a monthly subscription. She is the mother of 4 under 5 (Claire, twin boys Cal and Sam, and Kit) who keep her very busy (and very happy). They inspire her to keep finding the time to record her family's memories.
