Lance Anderson (former owner of Rusty Pickle) is returning to Croppin' Bug to teach two great mini album classes. Saturday, May 9
10am. to 12:30 Treasures of the heart
2 1/2 hours - $50.
THIS Album Uses WAX (HOT WAX) on the cover. - This is SO FUN!
Create a 5x7 mini album - Dissect, cut and reassemble and decorate this mini album and when it is back together we WAX IT.
YOU MUST BRING - “Stuff” that means something or is sentimental to you. Old keys, chains, trinkets, Film strip - negative, buttons, buckles, charms or coins. We will “WAX” these items into the cover and to become a permanent part of your album forever. We will have supplies to make it awesome - you need to bring personal items to decorate it and make it “Yours”.
Then at 2:00
Rustic Journey
3 hours $50
This is a Technique savvy Class great for a Scrapper and Card maker alike and fun for both the advanced or beginner. Build a pocketed accordion album from Scratch. Then make 9 tags to tell your story. I teach some of the famous techniques such as “Smash and glue” or the “Fold glue and smash”. OK, I have made these names up but they are great techniques for making an album or a card. With the Tags you will learn new ways to use tags (tags on a tags) pockets and a slide though. We use Burlap, staples, brads, charms, sticks, chipboard, beads and ribbons, yarn and string. See pIcs in Rustic Journey Gallery,
Needed, Sense of humor, Stapler, Hole Punch, wet adhesive or glue stick (and A LOT of it) - I also recommend red tape or Score tape and Brown or black ink. I like to use a craft knife and a mat but you can get away with scissors.
