Donna Downey is a bestselling author, instructor and all-around creative force in the crafting industry. In 2000, she got into scrapbooking as an extension of her paper product and photography addiction. This was only the beginning. From working as a popular columnist for Simple Scrapbooks magazine, to traveling the world inspiring women to push the boundaries of their own creativity, to developing her first fabric scrapbooking line with Prima due out in the Spring of ‘09, Donna is consistently on the leading edge of all things cool related to memory preservation art.
As a craft-media artist, Donna is a born experimenter, blending and transforming both traditional and unexpected items into meaningful pieces of self expression. A former elementary school teacher, she has synthesized her first love of teaching with her passion for craft and brings this to women via workshops at scrapbook stores and events, writing books, and through her popular blog and website.
Donna lives in North Carolina with her husband, and is a mother of three exceptionally blonde children, and one blonde dog.

The Places You’ll Go Travel Album Description
Saturday, September 12th
Where have you been? Where do you want to go?
Whether our travels take us to an exotic locale or just down the road, we need someplace to keep all the treasures we collect along the way. In this handmade 11x9" album we’ll find a home for the photos and memorabilia you already have or be ready for the next trip! This album would also be a perfect gift for someone starting out on a new venture.
As a Ranger Certified Instructor, Debby will teach us how to transform a plain gray piece of Grungepaper into a faux leather album cover. With her usual creative mix of product and unique pockets and paper folds, we'll create an album full of fun and imaginative elements. We'll use the fabulous new tool, the 7gypsies Binderie punch to assemble pages, pockets, bags, tags, and different size page protectors in the album.
We’ll be using a combination of the very latest products from October Afternoon, 7gypsies, American Crafts, Advantus, Bazzill Basics, May Arts, and Ranger Industries.
Supplies for students to bring to class:
12” paper trimmer, ruler, pencil, scissors, Ranger Ink Blending tool, Non-stick Craft Mat, Distress Ink Stamp Pad: Vintage Photo, tape runner adhesive, Crop a dile, stapler or Tiny Attacher, foam squares, sand paper or edge distressor, apron or old shirt to cover clothes while painting.

Back by popular demand but remodeled with all new products, we’ll tranform a 7gypsies ATC card holder into a fanciful home for your treasured memories of yesterday, TODAY, and tomorrow. Sometimes we think that “those” were the good old days, but TODAY is the day to make good memories! This little holder will display your everyday memories on little layouts and pockets in a nostalgic style, but with a fresh burst of color and whimsy.
We’ll learn new techniques for playing with paper and embellishments, painting and distressing and creating something lovely. If you’ve already taken the first version of this class, these cards are designed to be added to your project or display on a new holder.
Your kit will contain several sheets of K&Company Cut n Paste 12x12” papers, a full package of 264 pieces of ephemera and October Afternoon Wild Cards, ribbons, tiny trinkets, crepe paper, a package of 50 blank ATC cards, transparencies, and more. You’ll be getting enough product to make many more projects at your leisure.
