November 2012 classes

November 2012
Class Schedule
Didn't make it to Demo Day?  Need some quality art time?  Then get on by and sign up for one of these fabulous classes today!
Gelli Arts Print Making
Saturday, Nov 3
Ever heard of gelatin plate printing?  Neither had I until I saw the Gelli Arts Gel Print Plate and some of what you can create with it.  Our Good Friend, Kelley Walker returns with another "gotta take it" class.  She will walk you through the process of printing with the Gel Print Plate.  When you have finished, you will assemble the sweet shoji-style accordian book pictured above AND you will go home with your very own Gel Print Plate!
Christmas Wishes Clipboard & Box
Sunday, Nov 4
This class sold out very fast last month and the waiting list was too long to ignore.  If you were one of those who didn't get to take it, jump on over and get yourself in this class! 
All Is Bright
November 8 & 9
Oh yes!  All is Bright!  This card class is made using the My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad called All Is Bright (duh!)....  AND some of the coordinating brads.  You will get the whole package of brads with this class.  Love this color palette!
Vintage Door Pendants
Sunday November 11
Lisa has a thing for old doors (well, so do I).  Her daughter took a trip to Guatamala and shot some very interesting doors.  A recent Somerset publication included an article featuring pendants with old doors sandwiched between mica tiles.  Put this all together and voila'..... class!  These are very cool.  You know you want to make them for yourself and all your friends!
Wise Men Still Seek Him
November 15 & 16
Yes, wise men do still seek Him!  I created this canvas last year and so many have asked us to teach it.  Lisa took it home and updated it with current papers.  I like it better than mine and you will enjoy making it.
Demo Day is Fun and it's FREE!  Always a FREE Make-It-Take-It.  December's class schedule will debut and you can start signing up for your favorite.  Bring a friend and share the fun!
Winter Wonder Land
November 20 & 27
Truly a fabulous decoration for winter.  Not shown is the cute Tim Holtz lighted lantern which will hang above the little house.  This project is so beautiful it leaves me speechless!
Christmas Delight Cards
November 28 & 30
It's not too late to make one more batch of cards.  These are so fun and filled with so many great elements.  You will get a chance to use two new dies from My Favorite Things and the fab new wreath die from Tim Holtz! 
That wraps it up for November....  It's a great line-up and there is something for everyone.
That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy creatin'!
