Spring Curiosities Class

I am so excited to announce that I will be teaching a mini album class at Seattle Paper Zone this month.

Here's the description from the PZ site:
1pm-3:30pm Sunday, March 13

Celebrate Spring with a mini scrapbook album! Create a playful mini album that focuses on the delights of every day life in the springtime. We'll cover quite a few techniques including: using transparencies to add dimension, adding texture with spray ink, learning to stretch your supplies by creating embellishments made from cardstock, design principles for small projects and tips for minibook photo management. 

Project: Create a 20 page 3"x4" mini album 

Supplies Needed: Students should bring a journaling pen and about selection of about 20 spring themed wallet sized photographs (be prepared to crop to 2"x3") 

We'll provide all of the following supplies for you. However, if you'd like to bring your own, you may also bring your favorite pair of straight-edge micro-tip scissors, a paper trimmer, your favorite adhesives, a regular hole punch, black and brown ink, and a corner rounder. 

Skill Level: Beginning to Intermediate, but all levels of experience welcome 

Since we will be working with spray ink it is also recommended that you wear a craft apron and/or clothing that is friendly to stains.

COST: $25.00

Seattle - Washington
1911 First Avenue South
Seattle, WA 98134
(206) 682-8644

The class sign up information is also posted here.
Depending on how it goes, I'm hoping to do multiple sessions.

I am also planning to offer this class in blog form, and any extra kits will also be placed in the Etsy shop, after all the classes are over.

It's going to be so fun. I've been saving up some of my best tricks for this.

I'll do a few other sneaks as I get the content up. Let me know by comment or email if you have questions!

Hope your day is going well!
