Check out this awesome new class from Christina Lembo!
We are honored and pleased to introduce our new teacherChristina. She is the founder and owner of Franny & Franky Design Co., a paper goods design company that also offers custom hand-lettering, logo, and graphic design services. A full-time marketing manager by day, Christina runs her business from her home studio, where she also stores her ever-growing collection of vintage paper and ephemera.

Using found paper and objects along with any mementos you may have sitting around your house, in this workshop you'll explore ways to create a fun family keepsake for display in your home or a gift for others. We'll use various materials in class along with anything you'd like to bring from home (think cards, pictures, movie tickets, kid's artwork, random mementos you may have sitting in shoeboxes!) and assemble them into an initial. You can use your family's last name initial, your child's first initial, or even your own or a partner's, to create a personal and creative monogram that can be framed or hung on a wall.
