What a Fun Weekend
I hope all of you got a chance to celebrate National Scrapbook Day! We did it in style. Above are two of the make and takes we had offered. The 2 page layout is done with the new My Minds Eye Penny Lane and still has some kits available for $10. The flower on the right is made with the new Grungepaper, distress inks and Maya Road metal flowers. Some lucky ladies got to make these one of a kind flowers which they could make into a pin. Of course you could always frame it and use it as a source of inspiration as we had below.We really had a nice time getting to know everyone who came in Saturday. Everyone had the chance to make a card using the new electric Sizzix machine, and a beautiful Technique Tuesday scalloped tile stamped embellishment. There will be more photos to come of the festivities, and I will have the names of the winners of the drawings.
This weekend we are offering a special class we revealed Saturday. If you love the look of the Grungepaper flower make and take you won't want to miss this class. Have you seen the new Ideaology ad in the scrap mags? We have a two page layout featuring Grungepaper flowers, butterflies, Tim Holtz metals (including the new metal flowers, & Ornate Plates), and Tim Holtz new mini masks. Below is just a quarter of one of the pages. You'll have to come in to see the whole layout. We are offering this class Friday and Saturday 5/8 & 5/9(call for times, and sign up). This is a vibrant layout suitable for framing & perfect for Mother's Day! Sign up and learn the technique for this HOT new trend.
This month's Methodology Class was full of technique tips. The subject was MASKS. and we created beautiful tags with Tim Holtz, & Heidi Swapp masks, and Tattered Angels glimmer screens with glimmer mist & chips. Below is just one of the tags we did using these products.
I hope this inspires you to create something beautiful today. Capture a memory, or experiment with something new. There are only three Methodology classes left, & there are only a few kits left from April's class. Call to catch up if you have fallen behind. Next month the technique will be PAINT. We will use paint in ways you didn't know you could! We are building towards that Tin in the sixth class that I will reveal at the end of June.
Have a great week and come visit us to see what is new!
