carol wingert returns

We had so much fun in Carol Wingert's delightful classes at Scrapbooks Plus last year that we've gladly invited her back! This gracious down-to-earth lady will be teaching THREE outstanding classes the weekend of Saturday, June 7 and Sunday, June 8.

Carol teaches regularly at her local scrapbook store Scrapbooks Etc in Mesa, AZ, is a favorite Creative Escape alumna instructor, teaches her classes across the country, and recently taught an online class all about color on BPS.   She has co-authored two project books, Artful Memories and Lifelines, and her work has been featured in Stampington's creative magazines, among others.  In addition, on her own blog, this prolific designer currently hosts creatologie, her series of monthly kits.

Carol will join us for a weekend of colorful NEW scrapping projects showcasing her well-known classic but inventive style.  One class is so new that she is still waiting for products from CHA as I write. Another class is a clever and challenging take on the 7 Gypsies ATG spinner, and the third uses a clipboard as the book cover with newly-released Teresa Collins and Jenni Bowlin papers for a hand-assembled book! Here are sample photos from two of the classes she'll be teaching; the third photo, featuring cheerful spring colors, will be added soon.

#1 - For Girls Only (Saturday, 10am-1pm)
What can be more feminine than a mini book filled with spring papers, butterflies and flowers? And that’s just the start. Add a little texture (created by you!), some ribbons, lace and buttons, some transparent elements, a little paint and gesso and you will have a beautiful book to keep or to give as a gift. This is the perfect book to celebrate friendships or to honor a special female in your life.

#2 - Spinning Your Story (Saturday, 2pm-6pm)

How would you like to capture a year’s worth of stories and memories all in one place and with just one spin? Imagine a spinner sitting on your desk, counter or coffee table…packed with little cards filled with journaling, photos and fun embellishments. This class will take you from imagination to reality as we fill a 7 gypsies ATC card holder with cards and dividers prepped to hold the stories and memories of your year. Spinner included in class fee.

#3 - Remember the Journey        .(Sunday, 11am-2pm)

This little travel journal just may have it all…it’s portable enough to stick in a tote, yet large enough for photos, journaling and ephemera…it has a clipboard on the cover (imagine that!) and pockets inside…it has ribbons, twill and dangles…and it’s filled with brand new papers from Teresa Collins and coordinating papers from Jenni Bowlin. Best of all, you make the book from scratch…all by yourself! You will definitely not want to leave home without this one!

Are you excited yet?? We are!! Mark your calendars for Carol's three June 7-8 classes, and call or visit the store soon to reserve your spot.  And don't forget Debby Schuh's three classes on April 26.   Update 3/29: Debby's Round and About Travel Book is sold out already, her Lucky Life has 3 openings left, with just a few more for the Anthropologie album. So call the store to reserve your choices.
