Karen Burniston, Rusty Pickle Tour, and You: Sunday April 22 from 5-7pm

Let me start this message by telling you how much I adore Karen Burniston. I've taken classes from her and just have to say that she is one of the most organized and effective teachers ever. She definitely uses her engineering background to develop her instructions so they are clear and accessible, and she remains one of the friendliest and kindest people I have ever met. So Karen, I am officially beyond excited that you are coming to Annalis to teach the Inner Circle class. As if that is not enough, Karen is delivering a design with one of our favorite product lines, Rusty Pickle. Beyond cool, people, just beyond cool.

Here are the instructor-provided details:
Designed by: Karen Burniston
Class Time: 2 hours
Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Project: Interactive 8x8 round mini-album
Cost: $30 per person

Class Description:
You may have seen Rusty Pickle’s fabulous 8x8 chipboard circle albums, but you’ve never seen one dressed up quite like this! Join us for INNER CIRCLE and create a one-of-a-kind round album using gorgeous papers from the new Guenevire collection. The rich colors and sophisticated designs make this collection striking in its versatility. Decorate the album with pictures of any subject – we won’t box you in! (Pun intended) The artsy styling and flourishes lend it well to adult subjects (romance, friendship, Mother’s Day) but can also be used for a child. This uniquely-shaped album will become even more unique with a clever binding technique and three interactive slide-out pages. Plus, with the detailed handout and extra templates, it will be a piece of (round) cake for you to create future Inner Circle albums in a variety of colors and themes. Join the Inner Circle – you’ll get somewhere by going round and round!

Gather the following tools and supplies for class:
Adhesives – need a tape runner with a refill and (as a suggestion) a glue stick for covering the album.
Glue dots
Paper piercer or push pin
Craft knife, ruler and cutting mat
Regular office hole punch or Crop-a-Dile

Photos can be added later.
