Altered CD Mini Book $25
How many old cd's are sitting around your home office? If it's anything like my husband's there is a whole stack in there collecting dust! March on in there and grab five or six and join Linda in this workshop to put those old cd's to better use. Together we'll create a very interesting little shabby-chic book that can be displayed in your home or office - or give it as gift and let someone else enjoy it in theirs! We'll use vintage-style papers from Graphic 45, Tim Holtz Idea-ology elements, and students will learn an array of techniques while using Ranger Distress Inks, Distress Stickles, melted bee's wax, brads, and more - learn some of those Ranger techniques you've been inquiring about. Students will also be able to experiment with photo transferring onto Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas. Lots of embellishments included but please bring any little extra trinkets you may like to add!

Clear but distressed Mini Album $39

This class is slated for three hours - this is an estimated end time. You should be able to have the basic book finished in three hours but all embellishments might not be attached. Each kit includes photos of each page of the album if you need to finish at home. Class size is limited to 10 students so register early!

non-stick craft sheet        
tape runner or ATG
Walnut Stain distress ink
Ink blending tool & foam
Glossy Accents
Scissors
Crop-a-dile
Paper trimmer
Photos – a variety of smaller sized photos ranging from 1 ½” squares up to a 3”x4” photo can be added at any time. You will receive a 12”x12” sheet of brown cardstock in your kit to cut mats to fit your photos. Bring photos to fit these fragment sizes if you would like to complete the fragments during class:  2 – 5/8” squares, 2 – ¾” squares, 1 – 1” square, a photo for each side of a 1 ½” square, 5/8” x 1 ½” rectangle. Please note that Glossy Accents, which we will coat the fragments with to attach the photos, can sometimes react with photos printed from home photo printers causing the ink to change colors or even run. I’ve never had that problem with photos I’ve had printed at Meijer, Snapfish, etc.
