Scraptales, a scrapbook and craft store in Brighton, carries a wide range of supplies for all your scrap booking, paper-crafting and rubber stamping needs. They also offer some unique classes every month that can help expand your crafting knowledge and help you to have some great fun at the same time.
On September 12, Scraptales has two classes scheduled that are sure to strike your fancy. Grungy Flower Tags will be held from 10 AM to 1 PM. Wendy Vecchi is one of the newest Ranger artists to take the altered stamp world by storm! Her stamps (designed for Stampers Anonymous) are simply adorable and so versatile! Using a variety of Wendy Vechhi stamps and an array of Ranger inks and paint dabbers, you will learn several techniques to stamp, cut and color grunge paper and grunge board. Students will then use their newly acquired knowledge to create four Grungy Flower Tags!
From 2 PM to 6 PM students can make Flowers in a Bottle. In this class you will learn a quick and easy way to make Grunge Board and Grunge Paper flowers using pearlized solutions, Wendy Vecchi’s Studio 490 stamps, Tim Holtz stamps and more. There is no cutting involved – just a few snips. You will also have 10 blank shipping tags (2 sizes) to add color to as you go – nothing goes to waste in this class! At the end of class you can stamp to your heart’s content on these tags. Your kit includes ribbon and Grunge flower embellishment for one tag. You will go home with a Coke bottle vase of flowers and 10 tags.
