Debby Schuh Workshops

We are so excited to have Debby Schuh back at our store. If you haven’t taken one of Debby’s classes, come join us and be amazed at all the pockets, pull-outs and special touches in her albums. Plus a kit chalked full of product. She will also be teaching her new Christmas class for 2014!
Debby can’t remember a time when she wasn’t tucking her photos and all kinds of “stuff” into scrapbooks… she still has her scrapbook from when she was two years old! After teaching school for many years and working as a staff designer for Anna Griffin, Debby now shares her love of memory-keeping and story-telling with students at stores and events around the world. Her class projects are known for their clever techniques, design details, and meaningful themes. She says she is most gratified when her students are inspired to fill their creations with their own stories and photos and treasures – to use the projects they’ve made!
In addition to a busy teaching and traveling schedule, Debby has had her designs published in many books and magazines through the years and is the author of the book Kids Scrapbooking… Easy as 1, 2, 3.
Debby feels incredibly blessed to do what she loves – travel the world and meet wonderful people, do a little shopping along the way, and share her passion for preserving our stories. She lives near Buffalo, New York, with her husband Dave. Their two sons are living on opposite sides of the US now… one in California and the other in the Army, stationed in Virginia.
You can read more about Debby’s classes and adventures on her blog at debbyschuh.typepad.com.

The darling new Styleboard collection by Maggie Holmes from Crate Paper will fill our books with nostalgic charm and be the foundation for the sweet little pages that we’ll make for our favorite photos. The page protectors that come in your album will be perfect for 4×4” or 2×2” Instagram photos or you can crop your photos to fit the pages.

Candy Cane Christmas 2014 $60
Saturday December 6th 10~1pm

      

The seasons are changing, the stores are getting their holiday products in, and that means it’s time to make our annual Christmas album. This year we will be making an album filled with papers and embellishments from one of my favorite Christmas collections ever – the new Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane collection. From a jolly vintage Santa to the nostalgic Shiny Brite box, this collection is a whimsical array of darling images that will be perfect for all your holiday photos. We will be making our album from a shopping bag with lots of techniques for including all your memories – whether on a daily basis for the month of December or for the whole season. Even if you have made this type of album with me before, you’ll have new things to learn and will have fun filling this book with your Christmas memories, photos, and cards. If you have a chance to get the small size shopping bag from an Anthropologie store, it would be so helpful. I will have some for those who are not able to get a bag (if you can get more than one to share, I’ll be forever grateful!) I’m not able to get the large quantities I used to get but will have one for everyone who needs one. The album-making techniques can be used with any shopping bag – your mind will be full of the possibilities!
Student supply list: Please bring the following items to class… 12” paper trimmer, pencil, ruler, scoring tool, scissors, strong tape adhesive (1/8”, ¼”, or ½”, and also a wider tape, if possible), regular tape runner adhesive, Crop a Dile and/or 1/4” We R Memory Keepers Power Punch, Distress Ink (I use Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger), ink blending tool, non-stick craft mat, sanding tool, stapler or Tiny Attacher, two pieces of lightweight chipboard at least 7 ¾” x 8 ½” – it can even be a cereal box cardboard – that’s what I used, scallop-edge scissors, small size Anthropologie bag (8 ¾” x 10 ½”).

Open Journal Book $60
Saturday December 6th 2:30~5:30pm
    
The possibilities are endless for this one-of-a-kind journal/scrapbook that we will create using the parts of a pre-made journal kit along with papers and embellishments from the gorgeous new Maggie Holmes Open Book collection and lots of other fun bits of this and that. Each journal can be unique as you choose your cover design and the assembly of your book to reflect your style and your needs (or do it just like Debby’s!) This versatile 5 ½” x 8” book would be perfect as a travel journal that you could take on a trip with you to add to as you go; it would be a lovely garden or home journal; it could be a daily journal to record your thoughts and plans; you could use it as a gratitude or prayer journal; it could be a place to reflect on your life stories… You can make it whatever you want it to be! My journal has 104 pages! The lined pages that are scattered throughout the book give you a place to tell the stories and to include photos and mementos that you collect.
Student Supply List: Please bring the following items to class… 12” paper trimmer, pencil, ruler, scoring tool, scissors, strong tape adhesive (1/8”, ¼”, or ½”), regular tape runner adhesive, Crop a Dile (1/4” We R Memory Keepers Power Punch), Distress Ink (I use Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger), ink blending tool, non-stick craft mat, sanding tool, stapler or Tiny Attacher, foam squares, corner rounder punch, scallop-edge scissors, . Optional: We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch, baby powder to make stickers un-sticky, We R Memory Keepers Cinch binding machine
My Little Book about God $50
Sunday December 7th 1~4pm
    
This class kit comes with all you need to make a very special book that will be a treasured keepsake. Using the classic book, “My Little Golden Book about God,” we will take it apart and refashion it as a scrapbook-style journal for recording the story of your spiritual journey. The darling illustrations by Eloise Wilkin perfectly compliment the new Crate Paper Notes & Things and Bo Bunny Madelaine collection that we will be using in our books.
The book could also be used for many other topics: your favorite scenery and nature photos, for a book of inspiring quotes, for a prayer journal, or for a place to record the little things – the stories of where you see God’s “fingerprints” in your life. You could add watercolor paper and make it a beautiful art journal. I can’t wait to tell the story of my life’s journey with God (and of His journey with me) – I need to tell my story to encourage my children and their children in the years to come as they face life’s challenges. You have a story that needs to be told, too! This class kit will contain the directions and the color photos to follow to do this kit on your own or with a group of friends.
Student supply list: Please bring the following items to class… 12” paper trimmer, pencil, ruler, scoring tool, scissors, strong tape adhesive (1/8”, ¼”, and/or ½”, if possible), regular tape runner adhesive, Crop a Dile (or 1/16” and 1/4” We R Memory Keepers Power Punches, Distress Ink (I use Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger), ink blending tool, non-stick craft mat, sanding tool, stapler or Tiny Attacher, foam adhesive, corner rounder punch, scallop-edge scissors. Optional: We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch, Tim Holtz two hole punch, craft knife, cutting mat, wire cutters.

If you cannot attend one of Debby’s workshops, you can purchase a kit, just let us know when signing up. She will not be teaching her Storyteller Album, but you can purchase kits for $60.
 
Don’t you love it when someone says, “Tell me about the time…” – who doesn’t love a good story! You have stories that only you can tell, and this album is just the place to write those stories down. Just like a good book that you would get from the library to read over and over again, your StoryTeller book will be a treasure-trove of your “tell me about” stories.
Using the whimsical new Public Library collection from October Afternoon mixed with the nostalgic new Open Road collection from American Crafts, we will make a storybook filled with lots of places to tuck your stories and include your photos. The new Heidi Swapp 8” x 6” binder album with three different styles of horizontal page projectors will be the base of our book  – we will alter some of them and make your book an interactive scrapbook for writing, photos, and mementos.You’ll have several papers to choose from for your book cover and, of course, can use your book for anything you want – it would make a great place to record your favorite books or to use as a school album or even a travel album. Your kit includes thirteen sheets of 12×12 papers, 4 stickers sheets, stitched borders, Miscellany die cuts and buttons and ribbons and the album – it’s huge!

Laurie 1

State Fair Projects by one of our own!

Hi everyone, do you love the State Fair of Texas? I mean, who doesn’t? Have you ever entered the Creative Arts competition at the fair? It is a lot of fun, esp if you get that letter in the mail telling you that you have won a ribbon! One of our fabulous customers, Laurie Baker, entered several projects this year and we want to show them off today. So without further ado, here is Laurie!


Hey y’all! This is Laurie Baker, better know as one of the sisters or giggle sisters.

I love going to the State Fair of Texas! All of the can’t miss things– the butter sculpture, the smell of Fletcher’s corny dogs, the game barkers on the Midway and of course Big Tex. But I always love going to the Creative Arts building. I always wondered how do I get my creations in there? So one year I just entered one painting, then the next year it was three different categories and this year I am proud to have entered in four categories. For the first two years, I won Honorable Mention. Which was exciting, after you see all the entries, you can’t believe how many entries there are. But this year, for the first time, I placed Second in three categories. Woohooo! I was so excited when I won, I had to have someone else read the e-mail just to be sure I was reading it correctly.

My first entry is for Independence Day Decoration. The flag is made with f American flag fabric. Lots of vintage lace, Maya Road trim and some not so vintage lace! This involved sewing a somewhat straight line, which I learned at The Crafty Scrapper from Caroline Lau with Maya Road. Everything was Walnut Stained for a more vintage look, except for the gold trim at the top of the flag.Laurie 1

My second entry is Table Decoration – Halloween.This is my Steampunk Head, better known as the Devil Head at my house. This is made with Ranger Surfaces Metal Foil Tape Sheets, Tim Holtz® Adirondack® Alcohol Inks-Pitch Black, Tim Holtz® idea-ology, Finnabair Prima Mechanicals Leaves 2, and other miscellaneous items.

Our new location is 108 South Rogers, right across from the courthouse. We apologize for the mess at the current shop and any inconvenience this move may cause, we are going o try and make it as painless as we can.

Spooky Night Layout with Ginger

Hello my friends.  It’s Ginger here today to share a new layout with you.

It is nearly one month until Halloween and I could not resist these gorgeous papers by Bella Blvd. – Halloween Magic Collection.  I found this photo of my grandson Logan and it really goes well with these papers.

I used glass gel beads with orange paint and put around outside of the green paper.  The texture turned out so great for it stands up and sparkles.  I used many techniques, ink sprays, modeling paste, stencils, ribbons, and used lots of flowers.  I curled the ribbon around the photo and added pearls.
Please see below a closer look at the details.
Thank you for looking and hope to see you at The Crafty Scrapper.  You will find this layout with the items I used listed on the back.
Hugs –
Ginger

 

Our Precious Baby Layout with Patty

 Hi everyone! It’s Patty again with a layout that I created for The Crafty Scrapper design team.
 For this project, I painted, masked, inked, punched, and then painted some more. It is so rewarding to make embellishments and paper your own by changing them to look the way you want or need for a particular project. If you haven’t done any painting on layouts, try this enjoyable technique. Carolyn has a lot of products for making your work shine, so check them out the next time you’re in the store.
You can see that these flowers are by Maya Road and Prima, but they don’t look anything like the manufacturer intended. That is where creativity and inspiration come in. I love the way a little gesso and paint bring out the texture in many products! Now, you try  a little gesso and acrylic, or perhaps gesso and inks or mists. Just let the gesso dry first before applying the next layer.

 

Even if you think you’re not a painter, put your grubbiest t-shirt on and break out the paint! You will enjoy the end product so much more and your family will be amazed, I promise!

 

Products never have to appear on your projects the way you see them in the package. Make your work truly yours. Circles punched from the paper and then inked and popped up for dimension  always add interest. Now, how easy is that?!!

 

 

Be sure to stop by The Crafty Scrapper to see this layout and the creative work of other
design team members to get inspiration for your own work.
 Enjoy the creative expression!
 See you next time.

Seeing Green all over the store!

Hey Crafty Scrappers! It’s Gena and by now I am sure most of you know that we are making a move! Well, we want to move as little as possible so we are marking down items throughout the store from now until we move. If you see a GREEN line on the price or barcode it is 50% off the original price!

Here is just a sample of some items we have already marked down…
