Thanksgiving Leaves

Holy cow right?! We're almost half-way thru October (bummer). We had a fun messy time in our "Spooky Gate" class on Monday. Thanks to everyone that made it. In November, we'll get just as messy with Glassine paper, Distress Stains, Distress Inks and Texture Fades. It's a very Timmy Thanksgiving. LOL We'll be making this gorgeous Fall card using all of the above. It's easy, fun and BEAUTIFUL! You could use them as a simple greeting card, a Thanksgiving invitation or even a place card to fancy up your table. This technique as with all of my technique classes can also be applied to scrapbook pages. The leaves and the distressing lend themselves beautifully to fall pages. I'd like you to keep that in mind the next time you're looking at the card I've posted for a class. You may say to yourself that you aren't really a card maker - here's a secret - neither am I! (Although since Copics came into my life I've done a lot more here lately.) But keep in mind, You can use these ideas on scrapbook pages, altered objects and decorations. So please, don't pass up some creative fun just because it's a card. It's just easier to teach in a shorter amount of time. ;-)
The class is Tuesday, November 15th @ 6:00 and it only cost $3, plus you get 20% off the products we used for the class. If you aren't already signed up, give us a buzz at Scrap 'N Friends at 833-2600 and we'll get you taken care of. I'll make room for you!
Until next time,

Scary Pumpkins

Happy Fall Ya'll! Ladies - we will be giving the Copic Airbrush System a whirl this month! That being said, we'll only be doing one card - it will be an acrylic card. It would take an insane amount of time to try to do two and I want you to be able to play around with it a little bit as well. I decided to used a Tim Holtz Flourish Mask for the airbrushing bit (you know me and flourishes). We will be coloring some wonderfully spooky little pumpkins to go on our card as well. Markers used are YR12, YR14, YR16, Y00, Y02, and Y06. We'll be using a C9 in the airbrush. All of this is available thru Scrap 'N Friends in Brookville and you'll get 20% off items used in class, including markers if you take the class which is... Monday evening, October 24th @ 6:00 and Tuesday afternoon, October 25th @12:30. This class can not be kitted because of the the airbrushing, so sign up! (Give us a call at the store - 833-2600) There's a few spots left and we always have a frightfully good time!
Until next time!
