Attending the Crops Plus crop April 8th - 10th? Well, look for ScrapbooksPlus! We'll be one of the vendors for the crop, with a make-and-take during the weekend. Karen Bearse and I will be teaching a technique class on Sunday, April 10th from 12:00 - 2 p.m.

Ready to get inky? In this class we'll be teaching you over a dozen great inking techniques you can apply to any project. You'll make a booklet of tags, complete with instructions, that you can refer back to again and again. Plus, you're class fee includes a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad, a brand-new bottle of Tim Holtz Distress Stain, AND a specially-made surprise stamp.

We'll using products -- including the latest stamps and dies -- from Tim Holtz, Ranger and Sizzix, such as inks, alcohol inks, Distress Stains, Perfect Pearls and Perfect Pearls Mists, Texture Fades and dies. We'll also have his Vagabond die cutting machine on hand to use during the class.

The techniques will cover blending and stamping with the inks, including what to use and when;
adding a little shine via mists and powders; embossing/debossing, stamping and inking with Texture Fades; resists; and using inks with materials other than paper, such as Tissue Tape and ribbon.

Here's a sample of what we'll do:
