Supply List


This class is like traveling with the best tour guide. Cindy gives you all of the best information and guidance and then encourages you to follow your heart. Cindy is a hero of mine following her heart, being brave and vulnerable at the same time and allowing that to come out in her art. Her happy colors always bring a smile.
— Juanita J.
Cindy’s art is a breath of fresh air. She uses color the way a cook uses spices — to add flavor and make it her own. I love watching her create on her videos and Periscope because she gives you permission to follow her lead or to journey off on your own. Cindy is a gentle hearted artist who helps you grow and have fun at the same time.
— Kiala G.
I highly recommend this class to anyone! Cindy gives very clear and thorough instructions, and I love the format of the shorter videos. She gives you simple design instructions that help out wonderfully to make your Dori your own! Trust me, once you’ve made one of these babies, you will not want to stop. I’m on my third Artsydori, with many more planned!
— Anna F.

sharing my passion

  • What supplies are required? - Supplies are discussed in the classroom and I encourage you to review the lessons before purchasing supplies. I also encourage you to use what you have on hand. But here is a GENERAL SUPPLY GUIDE I have put together so you can have an idea of what is needed before class.

  • What size is the Artsy Dori™ book? - The cover we make in class fits notebooks that are 5″ wide x 8 1/4″ tall. This size notebook can be easily purchased in stores and online. The size of the cover could easily be adjusted for smaller or larger notebooks.

  • Is a sewing machine required? - I will be using a sewing machine in class but it is not required. I talk about hand sewing and no sew options in the lessons where a sewing machine is used.

  • Do you teach how to use a sewing machine? - I’m sorry, how to use your sewing machine is not a part of this class. If you want to use a sewing machine you need to have basic knowledge on how to operate your machine. Don’t worry the sewing part is a beginner level so if you know how to sew a straight stitch with your machine you will be just fine.

  • When will I have access to the class? - You will have access to the classroom as soon as you sign up. The class is self-paced.

  • How long will I have access to the class? - You will have access to the classroom for the lifetime of the class. Should the classroom close for any reason you will be given plenty of notice before it closes. (* See note at bottom of page)

  • Can I download the videos? - Videos are not available for download, but you will have lifetime access and can watch videos in the classroom anytime. They are also mobile friendly so you can watch on a tablet or phone.

  • Can I sell what I make from class? - Absolutely! However I do ask that you follow a few class policies. You can find them HERE. Please be sure and read before selling anything that you create from the Artsy Dori™ class. If you have any questions just ask.

  • Can I share the content of the class? -I would love for you to share your wonderful projects on social media with the classroom unique hashtag and please be sure and tag @junqueart if you share. However, I respectfully ask that you do not share the content of the lessons. This includes videos, downloads, passwords, etc. If you have a friend that would like to take Artsy Dori™ they will need to purchase their own spot in the class. The more the merrier so please share the registration page with your friends.

  • Can I receive a refund? - Refunds are not available once you receive access to the classroom. If you have any special concerns please email me so we can work something out.

  • What skill level is this class? - This class is great for any level. I walk you through the process step by step. So even if you are a beginner in mixed media art and book making you will be fine!
