Coming in April – Teaching at Big Picture Classes

January 10, 2018

I’m very excited to announce that this April I’ll be teaching a class with Big Picture Classes! My class will offer ideas and inspiration for making homemade embellishments. I love embellishments, from dimensional lettering and Washi tape, to puffy stickers and wood. But I also craft my own embellishments from supplies I have on hand to create something new. I’ll teach you how to make them, too! Big Picture Classes

I’ve been crafting my whole life and scrapbooking has become my passion. Starting out with traditional 12×12 pages, I later found Project Life and moved into that format for a while. Then I fell in love with making mini albums. So, in my class I’ll share a mini album that showcases my embellishments, teaching you how to make them using mixed-media techniques, Washi Tape, junk mail, office supplies and more!

I’ll have more info soon about when the class will launch. I hope you’ll check out Big Picture Classes as a place for inspiration and join me in my classroom as part of the mini albums category.

Have a great week!
