New BYOP from Sherry!

"BYOP Mini Easel Album"
The Newest Workshop from Sherry Bamsey
Saturday ~ March 11, 2017
10:00am – 4:00pm
Cost:  $30.00


Join Sherry for another adventure in this new and unique concept in mini album construction and design!  All the chipboard and cardstock necessary to complete your basic easel album will be supplied in your project kit and you’ll decorate with your favorite patterned paper.  Your finished easel album will be 7-1/2″ x 6″ with 4 doubled-sided chipboard pages that flip over the spiral binding, giving you a total of 8 pages to add your photos and treasured memories.  When completed, your album will have pockets, flaps, and waterfall features, and when not in use, can be displayed upright or folded flat for storage.  To decorate your finished album, you’ll need at least 6-10 sheets of your favorite 12″ x 12″ papers.  Paper pads such as those from Graphic 45, DCWV, Paper Studio, or individual sheets of your favorite pattern papers work best.  (Sherry used the beautiful new collection from KaiserCraft, “A Cherry Tree Lane”, to construct the sample album)  Anyone wishing to use the same papers Sherry used in creating her sample album, let us know when making your reservation to ensure you’ll have everything you need (you’ll also receive a discount!).  As with all of Sherry’s exciting Workshops, you’ll want to make your reservations early because SEATING IS LIMITED TO 8 students only, and seats are beginning to fill already!  Call to save your space before it sells out!






Supplies to Bring:  Basic Craft Kit (BCK), including craft sheet; paper trimmer; scissors; ScorTape (3/8″); your favorite wet adhesive; tape runner; Crop-A-Dile; corner rounder; SCOREBOARD; bone folder; and your favorite pattern papers for decorating (see above).  This album also uses a lot of ScorTape, so be sure to have plenty on hand.  Optional Supplies:  Cinch Machine (not necessary, but if you have one, it would help time wise!)

“Mixed Media Mermaids
The Newest Workshop from Jessica Madaglia
Saturday ~ March 4, 2017
10:00am – 3:00pm
Cost:  $45.00


Join Jessica as she returns with another amazing mixed media project that you won’t want to miss!  Come and learn a variety of mixed media techniques, as you swim away with three gorgeous sirens.  You’ll be stamping, embossing, crackling, and more, so get ready to roll up your sleeves and get messy!  Each mermaid measures about 8-1/4″ high (top of head/headdress to curve of tail) and will be constructed from heavy cardstock, with jointed arms ready to be posed as you want.  You’ll also want to dress up your mermaids with some of the wonderful charms and embellishments that will be provided, but if you have your own favorites, please bring them with you.  No two finished mermaids will look alike, but everyone will leave with 1 to 3 complete pieces, each one unique and one-of-a-kind.  Make your reservations early because SEATING IS LIMITED to 10 students only, so call now to save your space before it sells out!

Photos don't begin to do these gorgeous ladies justice . . .
stop in & check out the project samples to see for yourself!








Supplies to Bring:  Basic Craft Kit (BCK), including craft sheets; embossing (heat/craft) gun; strong quick dry glue; your favorite color palette of Distress Inks, Stains, and Crayons (Jessica will have some to use); and apron (optional).  If you want to add quotes, brings your favorites, printed out on cardstock in 12-14 point font (Tim Holtz' idea-ology Chit Chat also works well).  All other supplies and materials will be provided.


Come & play with the fantastic new Embossing Powders and Quarry Stones & Gems from Emerald Creek . . . we guarantee you'll fall in love with 'em!

“Personal Manifesto Boards”
A New Workshop with Terry Parvan
Tuesday ~ March 2, 2017
11:00am – 3:00pm
Cost:  $69.00


Join Terry as you create a 10"x20" flat canvas board that you'll make pretty with papers, paints, and more before adding your words.  You'll be able to hang your finished board from a wire-wrapped handle so you can hang it to see easily each day.  Terry will also have charms available for you to add to you board as you go if you like.  Before arriving at the Workshop, start collecting words and phrases that resonate with you (Terry has 80 on hers!).  Ask yourself, "who am I", then tell yourself "this is who I am" or "this is who I want to be."  Magazines make a great resource for finding words that leap out or have meaning to you or you can type others up on your computer using 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20 font sizes in different type styles.  Terry will have lots of background papers, scrapbook papers, colored papers, pencils, stamps, paints, inks and more for you to create your collage before you even begin to layer on your words, but if you have any that have special significance to you, bring them with you.  This is your personal affirmation board, so you'll be making it your own.  Spaces are expected to fast in this new and exciting Workshop, so call to make your reservations early because SEATING IS LIMITED TO 12 students only.  Call now and save your space before it sells out!



Supplies to Bring:  Craft sheet; scissors; and apron.  All other supplies and materials will be provided.
