Jennifer McGuire Classes

I attended two wonderful Jennifer McGuire classes, Technique Bootcamp and Holiday Madness, near Dayton, Ohio on November 21st. If you are ever near Dayton, be sure to check Simply Scrapbooks out! Great classroom area, friendly staff, and oh so many products! If I lived a bit closer I would probably sign up for all of their classes!

Here is a look at some of the supplies we used in class. Lots of wood, cling, and clear Hero Arts stamps plus tons of Ranger products including alcohol inks and Stickles. I think Jennifer singlehandedly stimulated the economy with her Thinking Inking Class at Two Peas because I already had most of these products! My new favorite from that day is definitely the white Memories ink pad. It is amazing how much better it shows up than my other white ink pads. Great of kraft paper, too.


Here is Jennifer demonstrating how to color directly on a rubber stamp (Hero Arts, of course) with markers. I snuck a few pictures with my iPhone, but this is the only one that came out very well.


Jennifer is just as amazing in person as she is online and in her videos. So kind, creative, and talented. Very fast-paced classes, but so worth it. The kits were awesome -- some items were pre-cut and pre-stamped to save time and she even included a picture of each card in the kits. Plus Ken and Colin made a couple of cameos! Such a cute family. At the end of the day Ken said they are her clean-up crew, but that she pays well. :)

Without further ado, here are the cards I made in the Technique Bootcamp class:



And here are the cards I made in the Holiday Madness class:



It is too hard to pick a favorite card. I love them all and don't know if I'll ever be able to part with them! BIG BIG thanks and hugs to Jennifer -- you are truly the best! I am so glad I was able to take these classes!

Hugs,

P.S. Special thanks to my husband for driving that day and entertaining himself in Dayton while I was in class. Love you, Stephen!
