If you’re a creative type who loves inspiring others or being inspired by others, this may be the group for you!
The possibilities are endless depending on the interests of the group: oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolor, art journaling, Bible journaling, paper crafts, pottery, card making, Cricut-ing, knitting, crocheting, jewelry making, seasonal crafts, etc...
Please take the upcoming survey/questionnaire (after the Fourth of July holiday.)
Happy (almost) Fall!!! I'm getting in the mood to do some fall crafts. How about you?
The first craft I plan to start working on are Halloween mini-album for my kids & grandchildren. (You could do a general fall theme, if you prefer. ) Google images of Halloween mini-albums online. Don't be put off by the elaborate ones. You can make them simple one like the one pictured above.
Your book can be made using chip board, cardstock, envelopes, mixed media paper, or from boxes you have at home: cereal boxes for example.
This gathering is geared toward those who have some scrapbooking, art journaling, book/journal making, or other paper craft experience. The reason being is that you'll need to be familiar with the various terminology, supplies, techniques, and tools.
Note: this is not a "class" or "workshop." There's no teacher. The event is for paper crafters coming together to share ides, spark creativity, and have fun!
Listed below are the necessary supplies. The top five items are must haves-- the very basics:
-ruler or paper scorer
-scissors / paper cutter
-chip board, thin cardboard from household items, envelopes, etc..
-adhesive: glue, tape runner
-rings to bind your album, if you don't want paper binding
- awl, 3" (ish) heavy weight needles, string or waxed thread for for book binding
- dye ink pad or paint to cover sides of chipboard and for stamping if you choose (probably black)
-stamps to complement your theme
- embellishments: ephemera, washi tape, stickers, die cuts, ribbon, twine, buttons, sequins, eyelets, gems (flat back), tulle, feathers, you name it...
Whew! That's a lot of supplies, but experienced paper crafters will have most of these things and a travel bag.
If you're fairly new to paper crafting, you can start off small and build up.
FYI...Some tools can be shared among friends, but most can't because of the frequency that they're needed by their owner.
I feel like I may have left something out trying to rush this post on a busy Friday. Please leave a message if you have something to add-- or have questions.
