National Scrapbooking Day Classes

On the weekend of May 5th and 6th Brigit Hampel (aka the Enabler Queen) will be at Papercraft Cafe to teach two fabulous classes. The first is the technique filled two page layout pictured above. It will be a fairly fast paced class and will last about 3 hours. The cost for the class is $30 and pre registration is a must.
The second class is called "More than just Tags" and as Brigit has taken the time to write a detailed explanation of what the class covers, I'll include it in this post. Each person who pre registers for either class will receive a FREE Sizzix birdhouse die (one per customer.) We have tentatively scheduled the layout class for 10 am and the tags class for 2 pm on Saturday. Depending on the numbers we will offer one or both classes on Sunday also, so please register ASAP to get the time slot that works best for you.

Here is the Tags class info from Brigit:

National Scrapbook Day Workshop at The Papercraft Cafe

May 5TH Weekend

Class Description:

Do you want to know more about inks, embossing powders and paints? Have you been under utilizing your stash or holding off adding these items to your “art supplies”?  Well it is time to get a little messy as we explore some of the ways to use these mediums.

This is a technique based class. You will probably get a little messy (mostly your fingers) but you will gain a better understanding of how to use a variety of products to achieve some amazing results.
Some of the products we will use are:
ñ Distress Inks, Stains, Embossing Powders and Paints
ñ Adirondack dye and pigment inks
ñ Adirondack Alcohol Ink
ñ Assorted Embossing powders

Students will learn how to blend inks, create their own mists, do a number of resist techniques, watercolour with ink, create embellishments and more. The #8 manila tag will be the students primary canvas but they will also use a variety of other “papers” to achieve a variety of results.

Once the messy part is done, the tags and embellishments will be displayed in an art journal* that students will create and use as a reference guide. Here they will be able to showcase and refer to the techniques learned in class.

Instruction sheets for the techniques learned in class will be provided along with papers to create these displays.

*An 8-1/2” x 11” album/binder is not provided

Some but not all inks will be provided. Students are asked to bring whatever Distress Inks they have as well as their Ink Blending tools. It is suggested that you use labels to mark your inks as your own.

Embossing powders and paints will be provided but if you have some colours you would like to work with, feel free to bring your own.

As a Ranger Certified Instructor, the products used in this class will all be from Ranger Inks.
A detailed list of the products used in class will be provided.

Watch my blog for some sneak peeks of the techniques that will be learned in class.
