Featured Artist: Danielle Flanders
Danielle Flanders, Designer w/ Pink Paislee will be teaching with all NEW Pink Paislee Products Dani Home Spun with Heart I am a certified K-8 teacher turned stay-at-home-mom with 2 beautiful girls and live near Albany, NY with my husband of 10 years! Creating things has always been my passion since I can remember! Scrapbooking and cardmaking were introduced to me when my first daughter was born 9 years ago. Since then I have really flourished and adore trying new techniques! I enjoy creating scrapbooks for my daughters and want them to know how we feel about being parents, how much they are cherished, and create something memorable for them to keep forever. But the process is what I really enjoy the most! I feel my style is girly, artsy, creative and a bit of shabby chic thrown in for good measure! Christmas Card Class (4cards) Friday 5:30 pm Cost $25 treejoycard3
Mini Book Class Friday 7:30pm Cost $30
Description: Get ready to create the cutest mini fall photo album with Pink Paislee's new Amber Road line! We will be doing a variety of techniques while creating this album, including stamping, embossing, working with transparencies, border punches, creating fabric covered buttons, distressing and more! You will have extra supplies leftover to play with when you get home, along with a complete stamp set of your own.
Please bring: *Acrylic stamping block - at least 4" long *Black stamping ink - preferably StazOn or another permanent ink *White or clear stamping ink *White embossing powder *Paper trimmer *Scissors *Black journaling pen *Fall photos - wallet sized. At least 8 photos, but you can certainly bring more if you wish. Colored ones look great with this line, for example: pumpkin patch photos, or any other fall photos. I did leave a small white border around my photos when printing them out with my printer at home. If you get them printed elsewhere and would like to add the white border to your photos, please bring white cardstock (or you can do this ahead of time if you wish). Don't worry if you don't have some of these supplies...we can share!

Portrait photography can be one of the more challenging aspects of photography; capturing a photo that appears natural and conveys the subject's personality is a skill that takes practice. The good news is you don't need any fancy equipment to snap great portraits, because portrait photography is about capturing a sense of a person's character, rather than producing technically perfect compositions. These tips will help you move beyond simple 'snapshots' to taking some truly engaging portrait photos. Using Your Digital SLR: The Basics Digital SLR Camera Settings Explained.

cricut Each class is designed to incorporate Design Studio and one of the specific cricut machines. Students are encouraged to bring their own to practice as we teach, and even use a special cartridge to experiment on one of my machines. I will also showcase the use of the Jukebox and talk about the new Gypsy. Tips and tricks are included in all classes and teaches you how to make your mats last forever, how to minimize blade scoring, and a whole host of recommendations collected in the 4 years I have been using my cricut and scouring the web sites for tips and tricks! 4pm The Original 6x12 Cricut $15 The Create Class uses the smaller, more portable machine and goes through using the various cutting sizes from 0.25" up to 11.5" on a 6" x 12" cutting mat, eight-way directional blade, Portrait mode (to cut taller images), Fit to Page mode (to cut the largest cut possible), Auto Fill mode (to mass produce cuts), Center Point function, and Flip function. This class also incorporates the Design Studio as defined in the first class, but with specialty uses with the Create and the DonJuan cartridge that comes with the Create. 8pm The 12x12 Expression $15 The Cricut Expression® is more than just a way to cut letters, shapes, and phrases in impressive sizes using the 12" x 24" mat or the 12" x 12" mat. The Expression features allow you to Mix and match creative features in the same cut, use the 8 special modes to create unique designs, and incorporate Design Studio in the use of those features to weld titles, shapes, phrases making use of the Multi-cut, Center Point, Flip, Portrait and Line Return settings using any cartridge and creating those designs in large designs that will fit across a double page lay-out!
