Upcoming Paper Crafting Classes

Now that I am a certified SDU instructor, I will be teaching at Michaels. I have two different classes coming up.

I made this vividly colored page with letters and images cut from plain cardstock using Cricut and Gypsy - Cartrides used were Robotz and Wall Decor and More. Embellishments - plastic rhinestones! Finally I have started on the backlog of wonderful vintage photos from my late mother's collection. What a life!

SDU Scrapbooking classes will be at Michaels, Inglewood on Thursday evenings in January.
Jan 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.

The classes assume no prior experience with scrapbooking and take you through organizing photos, choosing themes, designing layouts, color theory, journalling, embellishments and tips and tools. The class is normally $45 for all four, but register before the New Year and receive 40% off for a total of $27 for the four classes. Registrants also receive a one time 10% off your purchase coupon to buy materials for the class. They will be very hands on, with a small project every class as well as starting you on the way to making your first beautiful heirloom scrapbook.


Repetition of a motif (dots) and using printed ribbon as a trim.

The other classes that I will be offering at Michaels, Hawthorne, I have created, and at the moment are unique to this store. I will be teaching a two hour class on using your Cricut - V1, Create and Expression - cutter on January 19th, from 4:00 - 6:00 pm, and then another two hour class on using the Gypsy on January 26th, again from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. These classes will be $25 each for which I will supply all the practice kit materials - cardstock and so on. We will have some Cricut machines available in the classroom, but if you own a Gypsy, please bring it along. I guarantee that you will leave the classes with a much greater understanding of the awesome potential of these tools, and some neat little paper craft projects.

Not sure about Scrapbooking classes? There will be an SDU powered special Crop Night at a Michaels store near you the week starting January 9th. Check your local Michaels for the exact time. Mine in Inglewood will be on Friday, January 14th from a little after 3:00 until around 9:00 pm. We'll be making cards and you can bring your WIP scrapbook pages as well. The price - half what other craft emporiums charge - a mere $5 (or store purchases).
