Kitting today, Packing tomorrow, Teaching Saturday and Sunday

Nov 10, 2011

Today, I’m get­ting ready for a fun filled week­end teach­ing three class­es at The Crafty Scrap­per.

Sat­ur­day, the 12th at 10:30 I will be teach­ing the Vin­tage Hol­i­day Orna­ment Trio Class.

In this class I will help you re-cre­ate three unique orna­ments to give as gifts to friends and fam­i­ly or keep for your­self and use as dec­o­ra­tions in your own home this hol­i­day sea­son. You will alter two dif­fer­ent types of vin­tage alu­minum Jel­lo tins and one vin­tage ceram­ic angel that comes num­bered with a Japan stick­er on the bot­tom. We will be using paint, alco­hol ink, three dif­fer­ent kinds of glit­ter (no sur­prise there) as well as unique hol­i­day embell­ish­ments to accent each orna­ment

Sat­ur­day, the 12th at 3:00 I will be teach­ing a Jew­el­ry class.

In this class you will learn how to cre­ate two bracelets. The pop­u­lar wrap bracelets using but­tons and waxed linen and a bracelet cre­at­ed using Leather Cord and Waxed Linen that is accent­ed with all sorts of inter­est­ing baubles. You will cre­ate two charms a vin­tage style charm using a wood­en spool that is accent­ed with vin­tage ephemera and an adorable Pom Pom charm topped with seam bind­ing. Then we will com­plete the class learn­ing how to make a brooch/headband accent using Zip­per trim.I will bring oth­er bracelets and Zip­per brooches I have cre­at­ed and give you quick tips and tuto­ri­als on how I cre­at­ed each one. You will leave this class filled with lots of ideas to cre­ate items for all the girls on your Hol­i­day list.

Then Sun­day, the 13th at 11:00 I will be teach­ing the “Christ­mas Wish­es” class.

In this class you will cre­ate a home décor piece and hol­i­day orna­ment using a fun mix­ture of new and vin­tage items. Some of the vin­tage items being used are mer­cury glass orna­ments, sheet music, images from vin­tage cards, lace trim, alu­minum gar­land and tin­sel. I’ve been col­lect­ing these vin­tage items with this class in mind from flea mar­kets and thrift stores all year long. We will col­lage, paint, ink, glit­ter and of course Stick­le while cre­at­ing these two projects.Once com­plet­ed you can place the altered hol­i­day tray on an easel or attach a hang­er to the back. This will be left up to you to decide. The orna­ment can be hung on your tree or placed in a frame to use as a hol­i­day décor piece.

Look­ing for­ward to see­ing every­one this week­end.
