Summer Journaling…

It might not look like it now… but it really is Summertime! It should be warm tomorrow… the guy on the t.v. said so! So it’s time to pick up a summer journal. We just got in some great new journals from Peter Pauper Press and Papaya. Come in and take a look and pick up some fun Sakura Gel pens to go with your journal and doodle the sunny days away.

If journaling is quite your style… come learn how to make a super cute travel book from Karen.

It’s on June 15th from 5:30 – 7:30pm. It has lots of bright colored pages from Bo Bunny and others as well as lots of little pockets and secret spots to tuck away some fun summer time memories.

Two other fun classes coming up are a Mixed Media Gift Giving class ( shown above) which is on Friday the 10th and taught by Marilyn Brandfass. The other is learning how to do Japanese Bookbinding with Jenny Cabollero on June 11 and is shown below. For more info on these and all classes, go to our website at www.benfranklin-crafts.com


Grads and Dads

Graduations are happening and Father’s Day is just around the corner. Custom framing is a special gift that is personal and may also have sentimental value. A custom framed gift, designed just for her or him, is one-of-a-kind that makes Grad or Dad feel even more special.

For the Graduate, we have an assortment of graduation frames or let us create a custom matting with school colors. Need a grad frame from 2010, we still have some in stock. Do you need a certificate frame for that diploma? We have those, too.

For Father’s Day there are endless possibilities when it comes to framing ideas.

Pictures of military service, collage frames that include photos of pets or fun times from family vacations. If Dad is a collector or a hobbyist, then plan your gifts to match his interests.  Frame a sample from his medal, coin, stamp, or comic collection.  Is an old varsity jacket ofDad’s hanging in the closet?  Surprisehim and have it framed.

We will help you personalizeyour gift so Father’s Day last all year long. If you are stuck for an idea, gift certificates are available so your loved ones can create something special of their own.
