So, I just hung up with Suzy West and she is very excited about coming to Montreal. She just told me about her classes and they sound like so much fun that I think I will take them all myself. We will offer 2 different layout classes, one chipboard/acrylic album and one chipboard binder album that she has some fun techniques planned for. She talked about sewing on a layout, inking, painting, layering , pop dotting(if that can be used as a verb) covering an album with glossy accents etc..... she seemed to know what she was doing. She will also be bringing samples of other projects to the friday night crop. She also mentioned giveaways and lots of fun. So if you want to have a great time, learn lots of techniques, and get lots of product then you must give these classes a try!!!
Now as for an update of new products. Dream Street Papers Sam line is in stock, these have the cutest little owls. American crafts papers and new glitter buttons, pearl brads , thickers etc... are all out for sale. The newest SEI lines are beautiful!!! Reminisce's new safari, christmas, halloween and fall lines are all in stock. They have some of the cutest little reindeer in the christmas line and squirrels and deer in the fall line, one look and you may fall in love. They also have a very glittery christmas line. Speaking of glitter have you tried the best creations glitter papers... they are a little pricey but those who have splurged have come back for more. The glitter stay on the paper!!!! how original is that. Now this week we will be putting the newest cosmo cricket lines out and Prima is showing up slowly but surely. They have amazing pearl centers and say it in pearls swirls as well as the Prima e-line, a very reasonably priced line of flowers, pearls and crystals. Their newest art stitches papers are in too. I was not a big fam of these until I used them in my acrylic album(sample at the store). I cut one up and used only a part of the sheet and the stitching just looked so exceptional on the acrylic. Prima's paintable overlays are great too, especially when colored with the very popular copic markers.
Did I mention Copics, then this would also be a good time to mention that we will be hosting a Copic Certification Class in November. The talented Sherrie Siemens, designer with Copic Markers, will be joining us to teach this class. For more info you need to send an e-mail to narianne at ilikemarkers.blogspot.com requesting an application as soon as it comes available.
Last but certainly not least....Basic Grey will be arriving this coming week. Don't miss out, it's like christmas already at the store. Start your gift making and card making early this year so that you are not stressed as the holidays approach.
See everyone soon!!
