3/3/2015 class @CP2

The stamp convention always makes me think of Stampscapes
 and I have the urge to pull out my boxes of stamps from them, yes i did say boxes.
I was totally amazed and mesmerized watch Ken work his magic at the demo table.
I took his class here at CP2 several years ago.
Sadly they will not be at the show this year.
Look here to see who will be there, 
some companies that I have never seen at the Albuquerque convention, yay!

So back to this weeks card,
 a simple Stampscapes scene with a brayered background.
The fold is one that Renee gave me a sample of back in the fall of last year,
I'm calling it a modified trifold.

Please bring your basic class kit
stamping mat (mouse pad etc)
black edger

FYI, I used
Ranger Stained Glass Ink Pad
Lakeside cove lg
ducks formation
solo canoeist

March Birthdays will be celebrated on the 24th
Sue & Jerri have birthdays on the same day!

That should do it, stay warm and get a little bit inky!

2/24/2015 class @CP2

Last class of February!
Today we will continue with another collage card.
This one a little more involved that last week.
Can you believe I don't own a fern stamp!
(or at least couldn't find one!)
So I used my new fern die cut.

Please bring your basic class kit
ballpoint glue pen
black edger

That should do it, enjoy your weekend!

Handmade Gifts 2/28/2015

Are you ready for a big project?
This was another suggestion made for this class.
Email me if you would like to see a particular project.
I will have everything cut and scored so we can concentrate on
 assembly and decorating.

The Trinket Chest is at Scraps Galore, 
sometimes you just need to see it in person, pictures don't do it justice.
The approximate overall size is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 
Each draw is approximately 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 

You will need two types of adhesive
I used
Score Tape 1/4" 
Beacon 3 in 1 glue
Both are available at Scraps Galore.
Everything else will be provided.

This class will be limited so,
Call Scraps Galore, 858 1080 today to reserve your spot.
Cost is $28
Kits will not be available.

Have a wonderful week, hope to see you soon!

2/17/2015 class @CP2

Lately I've been attracted to collage type cards.
Here is a basic card with layers of ink and some dry embossing.
Next week's card will be even more layers with inks and die cuts.

I used peacock feather, Tim's stencil and a foam blending tool.
If you would like a different color background, feel free to bring it. 
Just make sure it's light enough to stamp the Leaf Clusters stamp.
Also feel free to bring your favorite stencil and blending tool.

Please bring your basic class kit 
gold edger
ink, stencil & foam blender

That should do it, enjoy your week and see you on Tuesday!

2/10/2015 class @CP2

I would like to thank everyone for their support & understanding
 about having to cancel class last week. 
This is a very rare occurrence and I hope I was able to get to 
everyone before they left for class.
My apologies if I missed you.


We do not have any February Birthdays so Evelyn 
suggested that we have a Valentine card exchange. 
Bring a card and you get a card.
Also it was suggested instead of signing your card put a post it 
with your name so we know who the creator is and the recipient has a usable card.
All strictly voluntary, if you want to play great if not you can still ooh & aah. 

So we will be doing the birthday pop up that I posted last week.
In case you have forgotten what it looks like, here you go!

Please bring your basic class kit
bone folder
glue pen
black edger
preferred coloring medium,
I used water color pencils
water & brushes

That should do it!
See you next week.
BTW I'm loving this weather!
