Vintage Mini Configurations Book
Paula Cheney

If you love vintage like I do, you will love this Mini Configurations Book! The newly released 6 x9 Configurations Book has a lantern that lights up,
a tiny doll with a bit of bling, and a faux leather mini book with lots of
staining, stamping and spritzing, using the new Ranger Spritzer tool.
Oh, and maybe I should mention new Letterpress blocks, Ephemera and
Adornments - all just released at CHA...so much technique and product to squeeze into this workshop! So prepare for the wonderful world of
Configurations...it’s magical. Bring to class: scissors, tape runner, sanding block, paper piercer (awl), corner rounder, bone folder and needle nose pliers.
Note: You are welcome to use your own photo to replace the one provided
in class. Must be at least 3 x 5 - vertical orientation.

Collection Folio
Paula Cheney

Do you ever want to tell a story about one event or trip taken, but need more than a double page layout to do it. Together we will create a new way of
telling your story using a new structure released at CHA 2014, The Collection
Folio.   In addition, we will experiment with watercolor paper, water brush and Distress Markers, learning how to add depth to stamped images found
throughout the project.  Add in Distress Stain and paint as well as
techniques using Layering stencils and you will go home with a beautiful project (just add pictures). Bring to class: scissors, tape runner, sanding block, paper piercer (awl), corner rounder and bone folder. ($55)

We want to thank Karen Burniston from Elizabeth Craft Designs for teaching two classes last Saturday. Karen is a great teacher and I hope we can schedule her again. Some of the new dies are still available and we will stock again some of the ones that sold out.
