Saturday January 23
Put your personal touch on a Card Album specifically designed to store, gently bind and display your cherished greeting cards that you've received or made. Crafters will get their groove on with Judikins stamps, inks, and glazes along with Sizzix dies using beautiful papers and embellishments from Creativity Inc.'s Autumn Leaves Collection.
In addition to my 2 classes (the Sweater Surgery Bird Necklace in previous post) the fabulous and talented Jeannine Stein
Re-Bound will be teaching a class.
Learn how to make eye-catching and functional handmade books using recycled materials and the latest in scrapbooking and paper crafting supplies. Jeannine Stein, author of "Re-Bound: Creating Handmade Books From Recycled and Repurposed Materials" will show quick and easy ways to take every day objects and made them into one-of-a-kind books. Projects include a planner made from a decorative file folder, a two-sided mini book made from a vintage flash card, and a photo album made from food packaging. Come away with three books and countless new and exciting ways to use papers and embellishments.
