Fall Class Samples

I’ve been working on putting together samples for the classes I’ll be offering this fall at the local JoAnn’s etc. I’m trying to put out some interesting things using stamps, and for kids as well. I haven’t had much interest this summer, but hopefully this fall will pick up.

For kids I’m going over basic scrapbooking with a single page that they can use as a gift, or use to start telling their story through scrapbooking. I’ve also put together a simple gift set for beginning rubber stampers, that will include a card, a stamped mat for a picture, and wrapping paper using a recycled paper bag, or craft paper.

The purpose of the basic adult rubber stamping class is to make as many different cards using the same basic stamp sets. The intermediate class will focus on embossing and inking techniques to make personalized patterned paper for use in scrapbooking and card making.

On to the details: This is the kids’ rubber stamped gift set. They’ll be practicing basic stamping and masking to make the paper, a card, and to decorate the mat. My photo is horribly dark, but the actual pieces are bright and happy.

The kids basic scrapbooking class will focus on choosing papers, coming up with a layout, and adding journaling. I had my son pick out the photo, and the embellishments, but did the design myself. (He’s only five, and would rather be playing Age of Empires than helping me put together samples for work.)

The basic rubber stamping class will focus on making as many cards as possible. I will be going over basic techniques and try to help any students create their own cards. I’ve made a few samples as a jumping off point, and we’ll go from there.

The class I’m most excited about is my stamping in scrapbooks class. I’ve used stamps and various ink techniques to make my own paper designs. I love, love, how they came out. They’ve got depth and interest, and these techniques can be used for all sorts of things. I hope I get people for this class most of all.

So let me know what you think. If there are any items you want to make yourself, let me know, and I’ll type up instructions. Hope you like these!
