What a great time we had Demo Day.  We created a beautiful "man" card that could be used for Father's Day or Birthday.  Many thanks to Impression Obsession for providing this fabulous Make-It-Take-It!

Lisa has an outstanding class schedule for you.  Check it out!  Be sure to check out the Jen Starr Workshops on June 11 & 12th as well!

Man Cards

Just in time for Father's Day! Man cards is the card class for the men in your world.  You'll make six fabulous masculine cards, and depending on how many you need for Father's Day, you'll have a few left over for the next manly occasion you encounter.

Gelli Cards
Sunday, June 8

Ready to Gelli?  Here is your chance to begin using the printing plate that's taking the internet craft world by storm!  This class will expand your technique arsenal in a way you never thought possible.  Jump in!  Printing has never been more fun. You will need a 6x6  or 8x10 Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate (available here), a brayer and only a few of your favorite acrylic paints (Dina Wakley's acrylic paints are just perfect for this process).

Stamp Between the Lines

I am to blame for this fab group of cards.  I saw a cool idea with watercolor art on Pinterest that just sparked a card idea.  Lisa is just the best at understanding what I'm thinking and here it is....  Stamping and coloring images on top of book paper.  Maybe not totally a new idea, but man oh man.....  is this cool or what?  Just thank me by taking this class....  come on - you know you want to!
