So my kits are packed and ready to go! I’m excited for Ranger Ramblings: Part II. The teaching format for this workshop is a little different from Ramblings: Part I.
The inspiration for change came from Wendy Vecchi, artist extraordinaire, instructor and all-around nice person. While sitting in her classes at Scrap Tales a few years back I paid attention to the fact she allowed students plenty of time for play and experimentation. It felt like a wonderful, extravagant luxury, something I realized I might need to incorporate into my workshops (which always seem to be crammed full, tend to run over and sometimes feel rushed!).
Well, take note – in Ramblings: Part II there’s still plenty of technique and product knowledge abound, but ‘play-by-design’ time has wiggled its way in ( gosh, I hope!). There’s also an inspiration packet included for each student to utilize during that play-by-design time or to take with. Those are Wendy Vecchi stamps used to decorate the students’ workshop kit and inspiration packet – what do you think; you like?
I think it will be a great workshop and I’m looking forward to hearing feedback from students. Well, wish me luck … I’m off to Scrapbook Peddler Sunday and Capture-A-Memory later in the month; Scrapbooks Galore & More in April.

Scrapbook update sent a link by Jennifer Priest about prepping for classes, made me think of all the thought, creativity and work you and Candy put in before students even sign up. I need to play with some of the new Ranger stuff….I have been too crisp and clean lately with my layouts.
I can’t wait, wish I didn’t have plans Sunday, but will get scheduled soon for the next one.
If you watch Tim’s video, he demonstrates the markers and they aren’t just for coloring!
The bags are great!
Sounds wonderful, Linda! Have you purchased the new distress markers? I am trying to decide!
They look wonderful. Coloring is something I usually don’t do so I haven’t decided if I need them or not.
