Scrapbook classes I will be teaching!

Here is one of the classes that I offer!  Contact me for details and the location is your choice.

Template Design:

If you have templates but have never really used them – this class is for you.
If you are a quilter and would love to apply your quilting designs to photos – this class is for you.
If you are liked arts and crafts in Kindergarten – this class is for you.
If you own any kind of a stencil – this class is for you.
If you want to make your photos into other than squares and rectangles – this class is for you.
If you want some easy mat techniques – this class is for you.

Learn some easy shortcut techniques for designing pages, mats, and cutting photos – unused background papers all using those templates you bought way back when.  Any kind of template will work – Fiskars shape cutters, Puzzlemates, Design a page, Wall stencils, quilt block templates, etc.  Any shapes from basic geometric to trees and dinosaurs. Whatever you have, this class will give you quick easy ideas on how to use them.

What you need to bring to class:
Scissors – one to cut straight and then one or two of your favorite decorative edge.
Templates – Bring at least one and up to 5 if you like.  Any shape, any kind.
Photos – bring 6-10 
Paper – bring some scrap cardstock (or those background sheets you have no clue what to do with) to practice on.  Be sure your scraps will fit your templates.
Adhesive – I highly recommend Dotto repositionable simply because it is also removable which makes it easier to mat items and hold templates down if needed.
A pencil or pen – does not need to be archival – I like mechanical pencils best.
A fine tip dry erase marker ( wet erase will not work so be sure to check the label)
Background paper that matches the theme of your photos or the theme of your templates.  If you are not sure – bring some 12 x 12 cardstock in neutral tones.

This is a beginner class.  No special skills required except being able to cut on a line.
Cost: 15.00 per person.
