Note the new time for my classes:  11:30 AM - 2:30 PM.

Please bring the following Copic markers with you:

In addition, should you wish to bring your own inks and daubers, here are the colors needed:
Distress Inks:  Walnut Stain, Black Soot, Spiced Marmalade

This class will repeat on Saturday 10-13-12 for those unable to make the first session.  Kits will be available if you are unable to attend either of the sessions, so please mention that you will need a kit only when you call to register.

I look forward to having a scary good time with you!

Creative Customer Creation

One of our talented customers, Paulette Hall has been busy creating some beautiful things.  Last December, she made this printers tray.  It is filled with Elizazbeth Crafts glitter filled sitckers. Anyone that has done this technique knows that doing one of these stickers filled with different color glitters takes quite a long time.  Oh to be on the receiving end of Pauletts gifts.

Recently, she made this beautiful explosion box.  I love all the layered details on the outside but the true surprise is on the inside.  It is like a pop up garden filled with flowers and butterflies.

More The Sweetest Thing Creations

Jill made some fun creations for the Design Team wall this month.   She always is on the lookout for things to alter.  She found the wood letter holder at Goodwill and knew all it needed was some paint and pretty paper.   When gluing paper to wood, you can use decoupage glue but you just want to coat the back of the paper.  The glue tends to be very wet and sometimes will cause the paper to bubble.  Tracy like to use the Beacon's 3 in 1 glue or the Helmar 450.  They are thicker glues than the decoupage glue and don't cause the papers to bubble.

Jill also created a pretty card and a mini tissue box for her other projects. I just love the mini banners paired with the bakers twine.  What did we do before we had all these great colors of twine?  On her card, she paired the ANW Creswood sewing machine stamp with the My Favorite Things sewing dies.  She used the mirror silver paper to die cut the scissors and thimble.  The paper makes them look so real.

MME The Sweetest Thing

Another hit out of the park for My Mind's Eye with The Sweetest Thing collection! As fast as I was checking the line in, I was planning my layouts.  The first I have created with the Bluebell line for my daughter's photos of the night she received her class ring.  The colors couldn't have worked better with the background in the photos.  I played with lots of patterned papers for this layout!  A slid a less exciting photo, but one I thought was significant enough to include, behind one of my more prominent shots.  Embellishments are always  breeze with MME as they offer plenty to choose from with the stickers, fancy brads, and journaling spots.  American Crafts Thickers made for the perfect title.  One of my favorite little touches is the bling I used instead of the dot over the "i".  If you haven't been in to see the new MME, you are missing the boat!  Hurry in!  It's going fast!
