Linda Cain Coming to Scrapaganza!

Sign up NOW!
Sure to be a sell-out!

Linda Cain is coming to Scrapaganza!

If you like Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi or altered projects in general, you will LOVE Linda's style! BUT, as an added bonus-you will learn to work and create with metal!

Scrapaganza is very proud to bring you another nationally renowned designer and teacher!

Linda is a self-described "Dabbler of the Arts." She is a certified Ranger Educator and has recently been featured in several magazines including "Bead Trends" and "Stamper's Sampler." She is a design team member for Paper Imagery Designs and Small Studio Productions and has just been asked to design journals for Vintaj Earth.

In other words, Linda ROCKS!

Coming to Scrapaganza Saturday, August 15th for THREE Fabulous classes!
Saturday, August 15th
Ten Seconds Jewelry Studio: 9:30am-12:00 noon $30
TransAtlantique Journal: 12:30pm-4pm $40

Make It Your Own Collage: 5pm-7:30pm $30

Check it out! Seats are filling FAST!! Linda is bringing us actual samples for the store! You HAVE to SEE them in person! ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!

TransAtlantique Journal

Come and join Linda in making an 8x8 Cover-All Journal that's loaded with Tim Holtz's Idea-ology Metal, stamped tags, ribbons, and terrific Graphic 45 papers. Bring your Bind-It-All and we'll put together a great book using the black inner pages. Perfect for a Travel Album or Journal, this project is made even better using Distress Inks that add depth of color to your cut pieces of paper.

Ten Seconds Studio Jewelry

This class will just scratch the surface of what you can do with metal, tools, and molds. You will learn how to emboss with TSS molds and use embossing folders, too! You'll come away with a whole new set of ideas for scrapbook pages, gift cards, and presents. Bring your Cuttlebug and we'll learn the quick and easy way to emboss in a flash. (Other embossing systems work, too, bring your rubber pads along.) You'll leave with 2 pins and a Slider Tin necklace in which to hide lists, gum, or tiny secrets.

Make It Your Own Collage

Here you will be able to use your imagination to make a wonderfully fun framed collage. Every one will be different! We'll paint our frames, distress them, and then make 6 tiny collage elements using Graphic 45 papers and all kinds of ephemera. I will have metal pieces, buttons, words, jewels, ribbons, wooden pieces, and more for you to rummage through to complete your "work of art." Distress Inks will be used to add color to the elements and the background paper. It can be displayed on a desktop or wall. Finished project is 8 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches.
