Ah! Demo Day! It brings such fun and laughter. This past Saturday was no different. We laughed and enjoyed helping friends to create this stunning Halloween card for our Make-It-Take-It. One of our best.... don't you think?
The class schedule for August is brimming with wonderful classes. Lisa created a wonderful assortment of card classes and projects and Kelley Walker will repeat her "Gelli Print - Long Stitch" class by popular demand. So without further ado.... here are the descriptions!
Botanical Tea Tag Book
July 31st OR August 1st
Graphic 45's new Botanical Tea is taking the paper art world by storm and this project is worthy of your time. Join Lisa as she leads you through the steps she used to create this beautiful staggered tag book that can be used as a mini photo album.
Silks & Distress Cards
August 7 OR 8
Watercolor on kraft cardstock with Distress Markers and Dylusions sprays, then add Silk acrylic glazes and you have a recipe for stunning.... stunning cards that is!
All About Nature Canvas
Sunday, August 10
This amazing project uses the 3 newest die/embossing folder sets designed by Tim Holtz. Canvases on Canvas in a shabby chic look will make a stunning decoration anywhere in your house. You'll love it so much you'll want to make more to give to your friends.
Gelli Print Cards - Repeat
August 14 OR 15th
Gelli Printing is all the rage right now! It's so versatile and once you get started, it's so hard to stop. Guaranteed fun and no two prints are alike! Lisa taught this class in June and has been asked several times when she is going to do it again.... and it's now! You will need a gelli plate. Don't have one and not sure which size to get? Fear not, Lisa will help you decide which size is best for you. Then you can start having more fun than you ever imagined.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 16
10:30 AM TO 4 PM
Come and Go
Our Demo Day is a regular event on the 3rd Saturday of the month. It's a place to meet your friends and even make some new ones! We always have a quick Make-It-Take-It for you and Lisa's class schedule is on display for the next month. If you haven't been, make a point to join us this month. You'll be glad you did!
August 21st OR 22nd
Die cut cards are quite popular and this class will have you creating amazingly beautiful cards using layers of die-cut designs. You will also make the beautiful box which will hold your cards in style from 2 pieces of 12x12 paper. Your box will be adorned with a beautiful flower you will create using Tim Holtz's Jumbo Tattered Floral Die, glitter and more. A wonderful gift... Lots of fun to make!
by Kelley Walker
Saturday, August 23
This two part class is an all day extravaganza. Kelley taught this class a couple of weeks ago and it has gotten quite a lot of attention. You'll print in the morning (no experience required) and after a quick lunch break return to learn a wonderful "long-stitch" style of book binding. You can see what the students created in the last class on Kelley's blog "One January Day". Class includes the use of a Gelli Plate if you don't have one, all paper and book making supplies as well as the use of Dina Wakley's new paints.
Distress Style Organizer
August 28 OR 29
Kaisercraft has a great collection of organizers for your studio. Lisa has chosen this desk organizer to assemble and decorate with papers from Tim Holtz's Wallflower Paper Collection. You will absolutely love this piece. You will need to purchase the organizer from the store.
We've got a full schedule for August. I think it's safe to say that there is something for everyone and you'll enjoy every minute of any class you choose to take. You can make reservations by emailing Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org), calling the store (509-6788) or if you want to see the samples in person, come on by. We can sign you up on the spot! Remember payment of class fees is required to hold your seat in class. Some classes have more limited numbers due to space needed to create so be sure you enroll early!
For additional information, please call the store (509-6788) or email Lisa (email@example.com).
That's it for now..... Until next post, Happy Creatin'!
