We are so excited for Jana to start teaching here at Simply Scrapbooks! She is Ranger Certified and Copic Certified. (Many of you know her from co-teaching here at the store with Jennifer Mcguire and from her classes at Stamp You Art Out.)
Look forward to some wonderful classes and learn some fabulous stamping techniques. The technique class will include five technique tags and cards. Her first class will be the distress inks...which will include all the new colors. Also coming soon will be her Copic marker classes. Check out her blog at www.janamillen.typepad.com
Jana's first class will be Saturday, March 27th from 1-3pm. Ink it up with Distress Inks . . .The new colors.
Join Jana Millen for a 2 hour class wehre you will learn how to use Ranger's Distress Inks. Jana is a certified Ranger instructor who studied with Tim Holtz at Ranger University and will share some of the many techniques that she learned from him. For each technique we will first practice it and create a sample tag with instructions printed on it so you will always have a record of how to do it. Then we will make a card using each technique. So you will leave the class with 5 cards and 5 sample tags. (Note: This class teaches the same techniques that were taught in the Distress Ink classes at Stamp Your Art Out in Blue Ash, OH. However, this class uses the newest Hero Arts products and new Distress Ink colors so the cards are somewhat different.)
We are starting our monthly kids classes again. Join our teens Danielle, Zack, and Cassie as they teach your children how to make these darling projects. This months project will be a mini scrapbook purse covered in zebra paper with some bling and ribbon. Parents can drop off or attend class with their child.
