"Letterpress" Christmas

Tim Holtz's Texture Fades, stamp set, and Holly die.

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, ate lots of turkey and pumpkin pie and got some of the goodies you were looking for on your Christmas list. I finally got everything I needed to get my sample together for December's Technique Class. This is a fun and very easy little technique to do and it looks very professional when you're done. We'll be using the Tim Holtz's new Christmas Texture Fades, his Seasonal Silhouettes stamp set, Distress Inks, Crackle Paint and Grunge Paper. (Love me some grunge paper - I haven't gotten to use it in a while!) There's still room in class and we're trying something a little different in December - class will be in the afternoon, Tuesday, December 6th at 12:30 instead of the evening, so all you folks that have wanted to come but couldn't do an evening, come on out and have fun with us in the afternoon! Give the great gals at Scrap 'N Friends a buzz @ 833-2600 and we'll get you signed up for class and as always, the Distress Inks, stamp set, texture fades, etc. are all 20% off with the class. And of course, feel free to pass this along to folks you know that might be interested.
And being that is almost December Tim Holtz will be starting his 12 tags of Christmas - so be watching! If you see something you want to learn how to do, let me know, I'm sure it can be arranged! I'll be getting a lot of ideas...
Hope to see you soon!

Leaves and Twine

Howdy everyone!
I know baker's twine is all the rage right now (well, besides Tim Holtz seasonal color sets! How cool are they?!) In our November Copic class, we'll be making our own custom colored "baker's twine" and well as some easy color blending on Hero Arts' "Real Leaves" stamp set. Copic markers make it incredibly easy to coordinate embellishments to match whatever project you may be working on, which is not only fun but will save you money. It's great to be able to buy clear rhinestones, white pearls, brad and buttons and make them whatever color you need them. Same goes for white ribbon. No more hunting to find embellishments to match what your doing - all you need are Copics!
We'll be using Y32, Y35, Y38, Y13, YR07, R27 and E08 for our beautiful fall cards. Class will be Tuesday, November 22 at either 12:30 or 6:00 p.m. There's still some room available, so give Scrap 'N Friends a call at 833-2600 or send me a message here and we'll get you signed up. You'll also get 20% off the stamp set, and the markers when you take the class.
Hope you will join me!
Until next time,
