Winter Scrapbooking Class

Friday January 22nd
6:30PM – 9:30PM
at 67 Covington Rd., Rochester, NY

Registration Deadline:  January 4th

I'm so pleased to begin offering my customers a scrapbooking class!  We'll meet monthly — the first session will be Friday, January 22nd, from 6:30PM to 9PM at 67 Covington Rd., Rochester.  Then beginning in February, we'll meet on the 2nd Friday of each month.  You can mark your calendars well in advance and not miss out!

Each Scrapbooking Class will have a theme, and you'll complete 2, 2-page 12"x12" layouts – 4 pages total.  Our first Scrapbooking Class is a winter theme.  Create elegant pages for winter photos — either vintage or modern.

In addition, each Scrapbooking Class fee will include a Stampin' Up! Product Base — whatever you don't use on the layouts that you create that evening you take home and make MORE layouts to coordinate!

Here's a look at just one of the layouts we'll create (these pages are designed to go side-by-side so the second page doesn't have a title) Just as an aside, scrapbook photos are very difficult to photograph.  The photos just don't do these layouts justice!

You don't need to bring any photos with you to the scrapbooking classes, the pages are designed so that you can add those later, once you find the perfect photo!  NOTE: Any scrapbook page transforms once photos are added.

Stamping 101 Library Class

I've had so much fun teaching two sessions of a beginner rubber stamping class at both the Naples Library in Naples, NY, and the Wood Library in Canandaigua, NY.  Thought I'd share the projects from these classes with you.

This card got its "wow" from cutting the frame and oval from the Big Shot using the Scallop Frame Die.  We stamped a beautiful tree from the Thought & Prayers stamp set in Old Olive Classic Ink and added a sentiment from that same set.  We punched a few flowers using the 3 Flower Punch and Perfect Plum card stock and attached them to the card with some Gold Brads.  A piece of Old Olive 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon completes this easy yet effective card.

The next card is a bright, fun birthday card showcasing several of the In Colors — Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and a bit of Soft Suede.  We used the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set and colored in the main image with Blender Pens and Stamp Pads.  A dash of Bermuda Bay 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon coordinates so beautifully!

It's the middle of November, so no card class this time of year would be complete without making a Christmas card.  We used several products from the Holiday Mini Catalog to create this card — Delightful Decorations stamp set and coordinating Ornament Punch, Four the Holidays sentiments stamp set and Silver Elastic Cord.  Colors used are Bordering Blue and Rose Red.  An extra bit of glitz comes from the 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on both of the ornaments.  The Eyelet Border Punch was used to complete this elegant card.

I like to show my students that stamping isn't just for card making and scrapbooking, but you can make wonderful gift-giving items as well.  And 80% of the students voted this their favorite project out of the four the completed!  Here's a simple pouch with topper using our Small Cellophane Bags.  I showed how to ink up the rubber stamp from Holiday Best (Level 1 hostess exclusive stamp set) with markers to get a multi-colored image and brought in the colors from the Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper that's wrapped around the chocolates.  A bit of Elegant Eggplant Rick-Rack from the Ribbon Originals Orchard packet gives an added bit of interest.
