Class Schedule


We were certainly busy Saturday.  Lisa's November class schedule made it's debut appearance and from the looks of things, it was a big hit...  If you didn't get a chance to come I am sorry you missed this great Make 'n Take!


The stamps used are from Impression Obsession and are part of a Limited Edition red rubber set.  These sets come with 3 additional card ideas for you to use.  There are 10 different red rubber stamps for an incredible price of $21!  I have a couple of sets left (as of the date of this blog post) so be sure to let me know immediately if you want one.

Lisa's November schedule is filled with fantastic cards and projects. In fact, the weekend of Thanksgiving is a "Christmas Extravaganza" with 3 very cool projects.  

Here's the schedule.....

Last Call for Fall - $35
Thursday, November 3
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Stamps by Penny Black and Gina K Designs are used to create these very beautiful cards.  You'll get a chance to try out the new Tim Holtz watercolor pencils.  Fall cards are perfect for all occasions and these are going to be truly wonderful for any occasion you choose to celebrate (even if it's just a quick note).

Christmas Variety - $35
Thursday, November 10
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Brand new 3D embossing folders make the backgrounds of these cards exceptional.  They can be used for any occasion but are perfect for Christmas too.  The Nativity card features a 3D style of dies from Hero Arts that is stunning when used with our gold glossy and silver glitter cardstocks.  You'll love the details in these cards and those who receive them will be so pleased to have been chosen for them.

Gel Print Playtime - $35
Thursday, November 17
10:30 am OR 6 pm


This class is always a big hit.  If you have never make prints on a gel plate, this is the class for you.  No experience needed and Lisa will guide you through some of the prints that look harder than they are.  It's fun to make these prints and then cut them up for card backgrounds or to use as collage material in your mixed media art or art journals.  This is a great class to share with a friend.

Preview Day - FREE
Saturday, November 19

STAGGERED VINTAGE CHRISTMAS BOOK - $40
Friday, November 25 - 6 pm to 9 pm


This beautiful spiral bound book uses the Simple Stories "Vintage Christmas Lodge" collection.  There are pockets and each page is slightly longer than the one before.  There are places for you to attach photos and pockets for cards to journal your memories.  This is a book that will be a favorite on the coffee table for years to come!  This book makes a great hostess gift when filled with photos and memories of a special party or dinner you attended.

ADVENT CALENDAR BOOK - $45
Saturday, November 26 - 9 am to 1 pm


Here's a new twist on the traditional Advent Calendar.  It's "book" style and filled with 24 small boxes attached to the front & back covers that can be filled with candy, notes or whatever you think works...  It can be used for years to come in your home or the home of your grandkids!  It's easy to make so you'll be able to make more of them for everyone!

PEACE AT CHRISTMAS CANVAS BOARD - $40
Saturday, November 26 - 2:30 pm to 6 pm


This will be one of your favorite pieces of Christmas decor that can certainly be left out all during the winter months.  If you give it as a gift it will be treasured throughout the years.  It's a fun piece to make but be prepared to get a little messy (not too messy, just the right amount of messy).  This is created on a cradled wood canvas so it will be sturdy and last many years.

Art Journal Saturday will be back in January
There will be a Christmas tag class in December!

Classes


Preview Day was so much fun.  Our FREE Make 'n Take was a hit and we sold out of all the stamps sets.  


This card was designed by the team at Impression Obsession and I think they did a wonderful job.  This Make 'n Take uses a "limited edition" red rubber stamp set.  The "limited edition" stamp sets are only available for one month and when sold out will not be sold again.  The stamps come with pamphlet that gives you 3 additional ways to use the stamps.

Lisa has introduced a great class line up for October.  I am certain you'll want to take at least one of these classes.  The cards are elegant and the Fall Memories Book uses one of the prettiest paper collections we've had for autumn.  Take a look and if you like, you can call the store to enroll or register online at myheartsfancy.com

Here's the schedule!

Colors of Fall
$35
Thursday, Oct 6
10:30 am OR 6 pm


These cards are beautiful and if you say "I don't send cards for fall", think again.  These cards can be sent for any occasion especially birthdays and thinking of you.  There are a variety of techniques used in these cards and that shaker card is stunning!  Stamps are by Penny Black, Hero Arts, Gina K Designs and more!

Art Journal Saturday 
$20
Saturday, Oct 8
9 am OR 1:30 pm


At the time of this post, the sample isn't completed so this photo is a teaser....  Lisa is teaching this time and we are using watercolor powders by The Crafter's Workshop with stencils.  She has come up with a whole new way to use those powders and I think you're going to love it.  This technique would be great for greeting cards.  

Christmas Wishes Cards
$30
Thursday, Oct 13
10:30 am OR 6 pm


These cards are soft and elegant cards!  You'll be using new stamps from Gina K Designs and Penny Black with a variety of styles.  I am so excited about these cards.  I know I'm going to try to take this class if it doesn't sell out!

Pop-Up Christmas Cards
$35
Thursday, Oct 20
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Lisa was inspired to create this card class by Jennifer McGuire.  They are so much fun to make and surprisingly easy.  They go into the envelope flat but "pop-up" to make a sort of boxy stand up card.  Your friends and family will be impressed when you send them one of these stunning cards.  You'll be using stamps by Penny Black, Impression Obsession and AlteNew.  Don't miss this class..... it's too much fun!


Fall Memories Book
$40
Thursday, Oct 27
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Lisa has created this sweet book using one of Carta Bella's newest collection of fall papers.  The paper is heavy and has a lovely texture. The colors are muted and the designs are perfect.  This is a popular class for many who want a memory book but don't make scrapbooks.  There are pockets for photos, recipe cards or even special cards you may receive.  These books also make great gifts for family members.  You will receive all the dimensions and layout notes so you can make more if you like!

September 2022 Classes


We had a great day Saturday previewing all of Lisa's September classes.  Our Halloween Free Make 'n Take was a hit as well.  Check it out.....


The web stamped in the background and the spiders are from Impression Obsession.  The sequins are from Catherine Pooler.  We did sell out of the sequins but will be getting more in early next week.  It's a great slimline card.

Lisa has a great line up for you in September.  If you didn't make it by Saturday, do drop by for a look.  I am pretty sure you'll want to take at least one class and I imagine there will be more than one.

The Schedule!



Trick or Treat Cards - $35
Thursday, September 8
10:30 OR 6 pm


Halloween will be here before you know it, right?  You'll enjoy making these cards using stamps from Catherine Pooler, Hero Arts & Impression Obsession.  There are two cards made using slimline cards which just goes to show you that you don't have to use them as a slimline design!  Let Lisa show you how easy it is!  You'll be glad you did!

Art Journal Saturday - $20 + $7 kit fee (this class only)
Saturday, September 10
9 am OR 1:30 pm

PHOTO TO COME

I have been asked so many times about presenting a color wheel class.  Most people want to know how to avoid "mud".  So I am going to do just that.  It may turn into a series, but this one will be all about "mud".  We will make a small journal and then create a color wheel using the "modern" primary colors of primary cyan, primary magenta and primary yellow.  These modern day printing colors will give you vibrant, exciting colors as well as lovely muted shades and tints.  We will then proceed to make mud and explore all the possibilities that make mud.  If there is time we will do a simple monochromatic "mud" composition.  With any luck this lesson will be as clear as day instead of mud!

Christmas Joy - $35
Thursday, Sept 15
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Use this class to get yourself started early on your Christmas cards.  New stamps from Penny Black are used for these wonderful cards.  Lisa will do her stamp once, create 2 cards trick again.  Water coloring with Tombows and Distress mini ink cubes will make these cards stand out from all the rest!

Preview Day - FREE
Saturday, September 17
10 am to 4 pm 
Come and Go


Come preview the October class schedule.  Samples will be on display and you can enroll in the classes of your choice while you are here.  Enjoy a FREE Make 'n Take.  Browse the newest products to have arrived in the shop.  Grab a friend and share the fun!

Quick and Easy Fabric Tape Cards - $30
Thursday, September 22
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Fabric tape you say?  Yes!  49th & Market has created a beautiful set of fabric "washi" tapes.  There are 4 in a box (which includes a special cutter) of various sizes.  You will want to make more of these when you see how beautiful they are and how quick they go together.  There are also some acetate pieces that coordinate beautifully with this tape and they are added to some of the cards to give them that extra zing!

You've Been Booed! - $35
Sunday, September 25
2 pm


A few years ago a neighborhood tradition was started.  I think it started with Halloween but goes something like the May Day flower tradition.  You drop a holiday gift at the house of a neighbor with an appropriate message - in this case, "You've Been Booed!".  Instructions for continuing the gifting to another neighbor are included as well as a door sign to put out that you have already been booed.  Lisa has created another loaded pocket to use for just this occasion.  It has a banner decoration for the big pocket and an accordion book and the instructions for the other pocket.  This is really a perfect item for this tradition.  Once you have done one, you could do one for everyone in your family.

Distress Spray Backgrounds - $35
Thursday, September 29
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Learn a brand new way to make beautiful background papers.  You'll make 4 or 5 11"x15" watercolor papers using sprays and stencils.  Oh my goodness!  This is going to be one valuable class as you will find these papers so versatile in your card making as well as your art making!


September Store Schedule

The store will be closed twice during normal business hours during the month of September.  Here is the schedule:

Saturday, September 3 - Closed for Labor Day

Saturday, September 24 - Wednesday, September 28 - Closed
Jeff and I are going to Minnesota to pick up a camping trailer.

Preview Day was a great deal of fun.  Everyone loved the FREE Make 'n Take.  This shaker card is really cute and easy.  All the supplies used to make this card were from Catherine Pooler.  The ink pad is "Queen for a Day" and is a true purple which makes a great color for a jam jar.


Lisa brought a great set of classes for August.  We had hoped that we would have the Halloween/Fall paper collections earlier, but they arrived today and we'll have them on the September schedule.  We did get our first order of Christmas from Penny Black late Thursday and were pleased to present it on Saturday.  If you didn't get by to see it, we do have at least 1 of each of the stamps and dies that we received for you to buy.


Let me show you what Lisa has in store for you in August!  Remember that you can enroll in store or online (myheartsfancy.com) or by calling the store at 405-509-6788.

Floral Variety - $35

10:30 am OR 6 pm


This class is really lovely and there is one technique that makes 2 cards.  Bonus!  You'll use 3D embossing folders to make the additional cards that will be water colored.  They are dreamy!  You will enjoy learning how to use watercolor in a brand new way.

Master Page Fun - $35
Thursday, Aug 18
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Master pages are fun to create and fun to use.  Think of them as your own custom patterned paper to use as card layers or in scrapbooks as frames for your pictures.  They can be die cut in just about any shape.  Let the fun begin as you choose colors, stencils, stamps and doodle pens.  This is a favorite among our artsy friends.  No two are alike and each one you create will be different from those of the past and those of the future - each one unique!

Art Journal Saturday - $20
Saturday, Aug 27
9 am OR 1:30 pm


Lisa and I share the teaching of this class and it is a favorite with many of our artsy friends.  Art journaling is the place to practice and develop your style.  This time Lisa has created a whimsical spread and it will be fun to use stencils to express your style.  You bring the journal (or paper, canvas, or board) and we provide the rest!

Class Schedule
July 2022


What a great Preview Day!  We had 3 tables of specials that included grab bags and special "curated" kits.  Lisa has a great schedule for July and I am certain you'll find more than one class to enjoy!

The store will be closed on July 1st & 2nd for the 4th of July weekend celebrations.  

Our FREE Make 'n Take was a hit.  We sold out of all the stamps.  Isn't this a cute card?  There were many colorations of the pup and kitten.  I thought you'd like to see a couple.


The background stamp is from Hero Arts and is a 6x6 rubber stamp.  We used papers from the Full Bloom collection by Simple Stories that were die cut to create the "packages".  The pup and cat are from the "More Peeking Pets" stamp set from Catherine Pooler and we colored the pup and cat using Zig Clean Color markers.  The thought bubble is a die from Catherine Pooler and the saying comes from a set that has 2 thought bubble stamps and a group of sayings that fit in the stamp or die. Even though we sold out of all the stamps and dies, I have another order coming and we'll have a few more available next week.

Here's the class schedule for July!

1 Background - 5 Cards! - $35
Thursday, July 7
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Use Distress Inks to create an artsy back ground on large piece of watercolor paper.  Then you'll cut it up to create 5 different cards using stamps and dies.  You'll love these "mixed media" cards and you'll want to make more.

Embossing Folder Expressions - $30
Thursday, July 14
10:30 am OR 6 pm


You'll enjoy learning how to use 3D embossing folders to create different looks.  You'll see how different these folders can look depending on the papers and inks you use before embossing and after.  This class is fun!

Loaded Pockets - $35
Thursday, July 21
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Are you ready for a really fun project you can use for so many different things?  Come make this triple pocket folio that you will then stuff with a variety of cut outs and tags.  This would make a great gift for the friend who would love a gift "Pocket" bag full of "collage fodder" to use for future art projects.  It would even be fun to make a whole pack of them to use as special storage for your own collage fodder!

Art Journal Saturday - $20
Saturday, July 23
9 am OR 1:30 pm


New to art journaling?  Not new?  No experience needed for this "free form" art experience.  You bring the art journal (or surface of choice) and we supply everything else needed to create your own version of the sample provided.  We guide you through the steps we used to create our art journal page and you choose the colors, stencils, stamps, collage papers, etc. that you want to use to create your page. Plus, it's always fun to create with other artists and share ideas with your table mates.  We also have a private Facebook page where you can share your creation!  This class is fun!  PHOTO SHOWN is work in progress.  Actual sample taught will be different.  

Blooming Beauties - $30
Thursday, July 28
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Variety is the name of the game here!  Learn various ways to create beautiful cards using lovely floral stamps, stencils and dies.  One card uses stencils to create layered flowers and after the stenciling, you will cut out the flowers using a die.  A second card is made using Distress Inks to color before stamping!  The 3rd card is watercolored using Tombow markers.  Tombow markers are one of our favorite products due to the long life of the marker and the distinct quality of ink and color.
