Scrapbooking Class:  Mix, Match & Ink
Inks and distress techniques aren't just for cardmaking! Learn to use inks to shade, distress and accent your scrapbook pages. Learn to mix and match various patterned papers for a unique, cohesive look. You'll be guided through making one 12"x12" scrapbook page using YOUR paper and pictures. And, you'll be encouraged to use your "scraps" to make a card or two! (Why put your paper scraps in a box or file when you can use them right away on a card!?!?!)

Along with your Basic Kit, please bring any Ranger Distress Ink Pads and Ranger Ink Applicators/Foam that you have. Also bring 3 or 4 different 12"x12" patterned papers, 3 or 4 12"x12" solid cardstocks (at least 3 different colors), foam adhesive dots and any embellishments you'd like to use.
