Creating with Ken Oliver!

Hi there Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

I'm so excited to welcome Ken Oliver back to Scrap-A-Latte! We get to share this Friday and Saturday with Ken who, if you've not had a chance to meet him, is such a creative guy, a great teacher, and overall good friend to Scrap-A-Latte.

He's teaching three amazing workshops, kicking off on Friday with a beautiful 6' Fall banner. Then on Saturday, it's time to tie on the mixed media aprons to make gorgeous Under the Sea cards (in honor of world card making day!) in a morning workshop and a 12x12 framed mandala creation in the afternoon.

It's sure to be lots of fun, so watch for pictures from these three workshops to be added to the blog as we go this weekend.

Simple Stories Hits Keep Coming'!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but man time sure flies! The calendar may say it's Autumn, but the Long Island weather still has summer in the air. So it feels a little weird talking about fall and Christmas classes with the temperatures in the 80's. Yet the leaves are sure to turn and the snow (and holidays) will come anyway!

Simple Stories ... a Scrap-A-Latte favorite ... designs beautiful classes that are then taught at Scrap-A-Latte. Two such classes planned for October and November are the Autumn Splendor scrapbook layout class, and the Christmas Snap! Album class.

Both classes are nearly full, but if you're in the area and would like to take the class, please call or stop in to register.  

Autumn Splendor Layout Class
11 am Sunday, October 20 / $33




Christmas Album Class
11 am, Saturday, November 16 / $60

Look Who's Coming Back!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

Where, oh where, does the time go?  It's been more than a month since the last post - yikes!

I had a nice, yet all too short, vacation to my favorite place, Ocean City. So naturally, when I get back it feels like the end of summer and I'm ready for Fall. It's probably how many of you with kiddos are feeling about now ... bring on the new school year (ha!).

I just wanted to share that I'm so happy to share that Joey Otlo from PhotoPlay Paper will be coming back to Scrap-A-Latte to teach three new workshops. We've taken a thoughtful approach to planning these workshops so that there is a little something for everyone ... home decor, scrapbook layouts and cards.

Check out the projects below. You can call me at 631.482.9190 or stop in to register. It's always a great time when Joey's in the house!

Christmas Memories Collection - Two Double-page Scrapbook Layouts

Ken's Coming Back to Scrap-A-Latte!

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,


I'm just so happy to share that Ken Oliver's coming to teach three new classes at Scrap-A-Latte. He's taught here several times, and we find him not just extremely talented, but such a patient, kind and "chill" kind of guy!

Ken's not going to be teaching at this year's Scrapbook Expo in New Jersey, so if you'd like to take one of his workshops this may be your chance!

Please call 631.482.9190 if you'd like to register for any of these workshops.

10 am to 1 pm / Saturday, October 5 / "Under the Sea Mixed Media" 
You'll make four beautiful ocean-inspired 5x7 pieces that are intended to be cards. But since I live near the beach here on Long Island, I plan to frame them as a series for my crafty space! Class cost is $115, with a class kit that includes nearly $80 in product that you'll use in class, but then also have to take home with you to create even more! You get:

- 7 piece Color Burst Tropical Breeze Kit
- 6 piece 5x7 watercolor cards (and envelopes!)
- 6 piece 4x6 watercolor paper pack
- jar of black modeling paste
- 4 piece 6x6 stencil set from The Crafter's Workshop


2:30 to 5:30 / Saturday, October 5th / Unmixing the Mystery of Mixed Media
In this class, you'll make a beautiful 12x12 piece. Class cost is $115 and it includes more than $70 in product for you to take home (including the frame!).  You get:

- 6 pack liquid watercolor set
- 12x12 mixed media board
- 12x12 stencil by The Crafter's Workshop
- jar of black modeling paste
- jar of white modeling paste
- 12x12 wood frame


10 to Noon / Sunday, October 6 / Galaxy Cards
In this class, you'll make six beautiful 5x7 cards (envelopes are included). Like the Under the Sea class, these can be used as cards or framed goodies for your crafty space or that of your besties. In this class, you'll learn to use Ken's Galaxy Color Burst and Liquid Metals on his water media paper. Dies used for the class may vary a bit from those shown in the samples below. Cost is $65.


It's always a great time when Ken's with us, so don't miss this chance to try something new ... and with a great teacher! Heck, why not make it a weekend get-away with your creative friends! To register, please call 631.482.9190.
