Olde Tyme Country & Scrapbook Studio inspires creative minds with crafty classes and scissor-happy supplies for fashioning momentous albums and art projects. Spanning two hours, Scrapbook 101 delves into the fundamentals of embellishing images culled from significant events such as weddings, first birthdays, or first tax audits. Alternatively, a Scrapbooking on Canvas class spends three to four hours lovingly preparing and sealing canvases for crackle-painted photographs. Neither class requires any prior experience, but students provide their own photos for both, and some materials for the canvas course. During the two-hour Burnished Velvet beginner's class, a starter kit shelters decorative tools such as tweezers, tape, an extra right brain, and three shades of glitter waiting to be unleashed.
In addition to hosting classes, the design shop lines its walls with sparkly utensils for accomplishing art projects and updating ancient cave paintings. Jot down design ideas with a Tombow marker ($3.25) or tint images with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad ($6.25). Standard 12"x12" print papers ($1.15 each) lay the foundation for colourful scrapbooks or vibrant lipstick blotters.
