Fabric Journal/Planner

Friday, August 11th   10:30 am - 6:00 pm    
(1/2 hour lunch break included)
Combine a little fabric, ephemera, and paint to create a one-of-a-kind Planner or Journal.  The cover will have a deconstructed feel with lots of simple stitching and embellishments. The inside tabs will be colored with the new Distress Oxide Inks.  Richele will make sure you have time in class just to play and have fun.  This workshop will include printed pages for the planner, dividers, pocket pages, worn cover, fabric, ephemera, vintage buttons, etc. (Richele has also designed  plain pages available to swap if you do not wish to use your book as a planner)  Basic sewing skills are helpful but not a requirement. Please bring a sewing machine (in good working order), black and cream thread and bobbins, scissors, heat tool and your basic class kit. Approximate size of journal is 5 3/4” x 8” x 1 ¾”.  Students will have a choice of 2-3 fabrics for their cover.

Keepsake Jewelry Box

Saturday, August 12th    9:30 am - 1:30 pm
Alter a Mini Configurations book into an elegant Jewelry Box to hold your trinkets and treasures. The box will be covered with the beautiful Memorandum Paper Stash and then aged to perfection with Ranger Distress products to give it the perfect vintage look. We will be creating dimensional flowers using Sizzix Alterations die cuts. Class will include a Mini Configurations Book, Mini Framed Panel, hardware, Textile Surfaces, die cut flowers, and even a little mirror for the inside. Please bring your favorite pair of scissors. And your basic class kit. Approximate size 9” x 6” x 2”

We’re going to be playing with the NEW Paper Dolls from Tim Holtz and learn how to photo tint with Distress Markers, use Alcohol Ink to create a vintage look on metal and glass and more.

Cards in Distress


Sunday, August 13th   9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Cards in Distress is packed with techniques to take your cards to the next level. Each card will feature a different technique to maximize and get the most from your Ranger products like Distress Oxide Inks, Grit Paste, Micro Glaze and so much more. We’ll also be using stamped images (Hipsters), Layering Stencils, new Sizzix Alteration dies (Wildflower 2 and Cityscapes), and some Idea-logy products to embellish our cards. Join me for a fun day of card making! Please bring scissors, heat tool and dry adhesive (and your basic class kit) Although Richele has designed this class for card maker enthusiasts, all of the techniques are great skills for collage, mixed media and art journaling.
