So Fresh

Holy Cow! It's almost August already and school will be back in session again. Where has the summer gone? Copic class for August is actually at the end of the month, that gives you plenty of time to look at your schedules and sort out some YOU time to come have fun with us in class.

We'll be concentrating a bit more on blending and shading in August with the "Simply the Best" stamp set by Hero Arts. You could make some fruity little invites for a BBQ or family reunion! You'll need R32, R35, R37, YG21, YG23, YG25, RV21, RV23 and RV25. Copic Marker is raising their prices starting August 1st, that said, if you sign up for the class by July 29th and order the markers you need, you will get 20% off the lower price. After August 1st, the price will go up about 50 cents a marker - which still isn't bad considering you don't have to replace your marker when it runs out of ink. Speaking of which, we will be creating a "punch card" for you collectors to get your beloved colors refilled (you know there's just certain colors you use like crazy!). Card will be a purchase 6 refills and get the 7th FREE. Refills are only $2 and can be done in a day or less at Scrap 'N Friends.
So, I hope I haven't overwhelmed you. I look forward to seeing you in class - don't miss out on the fun!
Until next time,

Spritz Board Class

Here it is as promised! It's nice and shimmery. When we do the class you don't have to use the dragonfly, as you'll have 24 different shapes to choose from (there's a birdhouse that would be cute as well), but we will be using this color scheme more or less. I used Smooch and Smooch Spritz on this project as well as one of Tim Holtz's new Texture Fades on the cardstock and one of my new favorite things Viva Decor Pens! Again, this is another card that looks like it takes a lot of work to make but it doesn't. The Spritz Board makes it a lot easier.
I hope you can come join us in our shimmery fun! The class is Tuesday, August 16 at 6:00 - Scrap 'N Friends in Brookville. You can contact me here or at or the store at 833-2600 to reserve your spot.
You don't want to miss all the fun!

Just A Taste

Hi All!
The Kraft Glassine Class was a blast Tuesday evening - thanks to everyone that decided to come play. I hope you had as much fun as I did.
I mentioned in class that in August we would be using Hampton Art's Spritz Board. The boards are versatile, you can use them on cards or scrapbook layouts, altered projects - just about anything really. The sample is my Easter "shadow box" layout using Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Springtime" paper line (Love it!) The large butterfly is a Spritz Board from the Icon box. I inked this one over with light blue Powder Puff (the color name escapes me right now). You get the cool look of resist on chipboard without all the steps. I'm hoping to have the class sample done here VERY soon. I'll post it as soon as I do.
The Spritz Board Class will be Tuesday, August 16 @ 6:00 p.m. The cost is $6/1 card, however, you get the entire box of Spritz Boards included in the class - 24 different shapes to choose from.
Give us a call at Scrap 'N Friends (937) 833-2600 and sign up for the fun!

Kraft Glassine

This stuff is sooooo cool and there's all sorts of things you can do with it. You can emboss it, color it with alcohol inks - which also means you can color on it with Copic markers, stamp it - I could go on and on. We'll be doing a few techniques with the glassine in Technique Class. It's beautiful inky fun! We'll be using Tim Holtz Distress Stains and Distress Inks, Antique Writing Stamp by Hero Arts, Viva Paint Pearls and of course Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine. Once you start playing with it, you'll have all sorts of ideas of other ways to use it on cards and scrapbook pages. There's still room to join our party Tuesday, July 12th at 6:00. All supplies are available thru Scrap 'N Friends and if you talk the class, you'll get 20% Off! Give us a call at the store - 833-2600, shoot us an email, leave a comment here or feel free to email me at to join us in the fun! Hope to see you there!
Until next time,
