Get Your Creepy on for Halloween!

"Zombies 'n More Zombies . . .
Oh, Yeah!"
The Newest Workshop from Pollie Coleman
Saturday ~ September 9, 2017
10:00am – 5:00pm
Cost:  $45.00


Who's ready for Halloween?  Join our very own "Queen of Halloween" as she brings you another project for you to sink your teeth in!  In this Workshop, you'll take your mixed media skills to the creepy side, enhance your techniques using texture paste, and layering fun items such as texture boulders, pebbles, and sand, as well as starburst sprays and adding highlights.  Work on your embossing techniques with the die cut Zombie and dust off your Shrinky Dinks skills as you create all sorts of spooky characters.  Lastly, learn how to turn those Zombies and spooky creatures into a puppet show to create a one-of-a-kind piece that everyone will love!  Everything you'll need to construct your project will be available in the Workshop, but if you have anything special you'd like to add, please feel free to bring it with you.  SEATING IS LIMITED, so make your reservations early to be sure to save your seat for this chilling adventure!




Supplies to Bring:  Basic Craft Kit (BCK), including craft or nonstick sheet; scissors; hot glue gun (with refills); your favorite wet adhesive; and anything special you might want to add.  All other materials and supplies will be provided.

The Next in the Series of BYOP Workshops

Join Sherry as she returns with the next installment in her popular BYOP Mini Album Series!  You'll find all the necessary chipboard, cardstock, and seam binding in your choice of color to complete your basic album supplied in your project kit, ready for you to decorate with your favorite patterned paper.  This beautiful new album was inspired by Lori Parker Thomas, a Creative Design Member of Country Craft Creations, who has generously given Sherry permission to share this amazing big waterfall album.  (Be sure to follow Lori on YouTube, Facebook, or Country Craft Creations.)  Your finished album will be 9-1/4" x 6-3/4" designed to accommodate at least 40, 4"x6" photos.  On the right inside cover, you'll construct a large double waterfall that will have space for 23-24, 4"x6" photos.  The left inside cover will have a large pocket flap that flips upwards, as well as two flaps that will be held closed with a magnet.  The large pocket holds a large file-type folder.  To decorate your finished album, you'll need at least 12 sheets of your favorite 12"x12" papers (paper used in sample is PhotoPlay's new collection, "Live Free").  As with all of Sherry's exciting Workshops, you'll want to make your reservations early because SEATING IS LIMITED, and seats sell out fast!



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.  All other supplies and materials will be supplied.
