12/17/2015 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

The last class of 2015!
Is it me or did this year really zip by?

We will have our annual luncheon today after class (12 noon) at Nick & Jimmy's.
We will celebrate Prissy's birthday, so bring her a card.
We will also do the bring a holiday card get a card.
So if you bring a card we will put them all together 
and each person can pull a card.
I always sign my card so the recipient knows who it's from.
Last year I believe it was Joan who put a signed sticky note 
so the recipient can reuse the card.
Choice is yours.

Today's card is really simple but I think it packs a punch!
We will be working with Perfect Pearls and Pearl EX.
I just love those peacock feathers!

Please bring your basic class kit
Gold edger
If you have either of the mica products you can bring them, 
I used blues, greens & gold.
along with a paint brush to apply the mica powder.

That's it, see you Thursday!

Catalog of the Month at Scraps Galore~ November 2015

Saturday November 28 at 10;30 am we will be exploring and creating
 with StencilGirl Stencils.

We will be using a variety of mediums to create multiple pieces.
These can be mounted on a card back or incorporated in an art journal.
You can also jot notes on the back of each and keep them as technique cards.

Here are the three basic techniques we will be learning.

Color Bursts & Stencils
This is a two for one method!

Layer and color building with sprays and acrylic paints.

Then of course I kept going, here's some other items.

If you are interested in taking this class please call Scraps Galore today,
seats will be limited. 
There will not be kits due to the hands on nature of this class.

Elizabeth will discount all Stencil Girl product in the store or special ordered,
from 11/28-12/28.

Today's card is using an unmounted stamp 
I bought at the convention last year.
I believe it is from Stampland.
Metallics are HOT right now.
There are machines to apply metallic foil as well as other methods.
Today I went back to basics with gold embossing powder.
I used an Anna Griffin embossing folder that
Elizabeth special ordered for me quite some time ago.
The name of the folder is Empire Arch.
I still felt I needed some more glitz
and started digging through my supplies for the perfect medium.
Viva Inka Gold Metallic Rub.
(I had it in 4 colors, teehee)
I think they make a lovely set as a holiday gift.

Please bring your basic class kit
stamping foam
gold edger
That should do it!

Enjoy your week & stay warm.
