We are so excited for another year of Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Conventions, and the opportunity to create all kinds of amazing projects in our CKC classes! We thought we would ask each of our CK Events teachers to share with us their favorite class and their very first scrapbook page as well as a recent scrapbook page. Whether you started scrapbooking 5 years ago or 25 years ago we can all learn about new techniques and the tools to make every project we create a keepsake to be proud of. Creating Keepsakes classes are one way to learn those techniques, just look how far our teachers have come.
Mixed Medium Mash Up
WOW!!! What a fantastic class! I love watching my students come in saying “I’m not creative” or “I buy all this stuff and don’t know how to use it” and then by the end of the class seeing the pride on their faces as they show off their handiwork. I know sometimes we don’t think we have the time or even the desire to learn a new technique. But after this class you’ll be surprised at the results that are achieved in a short amount of time with very little effort!! One of my personal favorite techniques in this class is the use of modeling paste and the Squirrel (isn’t that just fun to say???!!) template. Such a great way to add depth and texture to your project. Join us for a fun, fast paced totally fantastic expedition into the wonderful world of mixed mediums. Hope to see you there!
Scrapbooking 101 means something different to everyone! I love design and the basics of scrapbooking are right up there as a close second. Discussion class they said; awesome sauce I said! The best thing about this class is that we all have the opportunity to do what we love, talk about how we are all different scrabookers, and see things in a unique way. I LOVE THAT WE GET TO DISCUSS (I’m a talker, aka woman!) We are all equally fabulous and creative, and this class brings us all back to the reason why we preserve our memories. Peace, blessings, and chocolate.
Put a Cork In It
Put a Cork In It! No, we’re not asking you to come to class and sit in silence. We ARE all about having fun, after all! But we are going to invite you to pop the cork on your creativity and discover new ways to use a trendy, textured treat—cork! I absolutely adore sharing new techniques with others who are passionate about crafting, and whether you’re new to scrapbooking or a seasoned pro, I think you’re going to adore catching the cork craze. Cheers! Megan
Thursday Album Class
The Thursday album class has always been one of my favorite classes to teach. To me this class means more time getting to know each of the students, more time to teach, and more time to laugh. I love delving into all of the many things you can do with an album and having the time to accomplish those things. This year it’s especially true, with a fun combination of mixed media and top brands in the industry meshed together for four hours of amazing laughs and learning. I am also excited that this year there will be shopping in the Thursday Album classroom! This is new so I am super excited to see how this turns out. I hope you’ll all call in sick on Thursday at work, (who needs work anyway) and come to class. Since the album class doesn’t start until 1 p.m. this year, you workaholics can even work a half day, (you know who you are).
See you in class, Annette
Come Create with Mini 8 Punches
I am a big fan of punches…and especially love when I discover one that stands out from the crowd. The Mini 8 punches we use in this class intrigued me at first, and now that I’ve had the chance to use them several times I get a kick out of sharing them with everyone who takes this class! I also like when a product can be used by both scrapbookers AND card makers…so it’s a win-win.
A special thanks to Unity Stamps for helping us feature our 2014 lineup of instructors, with their artful line of “Girl” stamps. For inspiration and learning at your fingertips be sure to look for classes sponsored by Creating Keepsakes Events at a CK Scrapbook Convention near you.
