Jen Starr Is Coming on March 1st

We are so excited to have Jen Starr back at Photo Scraps!


This new collection of classes are completely technique based and similar in style to my popular (retired) Ink Boot Camp Class. Students will be completely immersed in inspiring new ideas, techniques and advanced product knowledge that they will be able to translate in to whatever their passion is…card making, scrapbooking, art journaling, etc. All classes in this series will be taught in 6x6 format so they can even put it all together as a big book of technique reference!  

***Students who sign up for both classes will receive $10 shopping credit! ***


Saturday March 1st  11-2 PM
(3 hours $55)

In this truly MIXED MEDIA workshop we will journey through the world of water based dye inks…sprays, stains, ink pads, etc. Exploring much further than just the basic techniques, the focus will be on MIXING your mediums with other products to create some beautiful effects that will translate in to all of your projects whether you are a card maker, scrapbooker, art journaler or dabble in everything! We will be working in 6x6 format with instructions for each technique on the backs of each page to create a collection to reference.

***PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Variety of paint brushes, roll of paper towels, container for water, palette knife


Saturday March 1st 3-6 PM 
(3 hours $55)

Stencils play a big part in so many mixed media projects and the creative possibilities are endless! In this workshop we will explore some of those possibilities using a variety of techniques and mediums from Viva D├ęcor, Ranger and Art Anthology…so not only will you learn how to get the best use out of your stencils, but a LOT of product knowledge as well! We will go beyond the basics and create with some of my favorite and more advanced stencil techniques. We will be working in 6x6 format with instructions for each technique on the backs of each page to create a collection to reference.

***PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Variety of paint brushes, palette knife, baby wipes, roll of paper towels, container for water.

Tammi from Faber-Castell is coming to Teach Friday April 4th

We are so excited to be hosting Tammie from Faber-Castell on Friday April 4th.  I've taken multiple classes from Tammie, in fact she was the one who taught me how to Frantage.   

I was blessed to be born into a family of craft enthusiast, seamstresses and all around do it yourselfers. While I grew up with a sewing needle in my hand, learning how to do everything from cross-stitch to tailoring, quilting to embroidery I always longed to paint.

20 years ago my sister-in-law signed me up for a beginning Tole Painting Class. I came home from my first class and told my husband “This is what I want to do for the rest of my life.” Within months I completely changed my career path and have been fortunate enough to have worked in the craft industry ever since. I think I’ve done just about everything there is to do in this industry- Store Manager, Store Owner, Teacher, Buyer, Designer, Manufacturing, Product Development, Marketing, Sales and more.

I love designing and teaching most of all. Trying new products and techniques and seeing where it leads me. For me Art is about taking what you know and then incorporating something new. Just like life it is ever changing, evolving, pushing the boundaries and ultimately it becomes a unique representation of who we are.
