I colored tonight!!

Hi Everyone,

So I took the coloring with copic class tonight and guess what? You need 3 colors to color a tongue. I colored the best tongue I've ever colored, tonight. I also colored and shaded hair and clothing. Thanks Erin. I still haven't caught on to the lighting but my shading is improving.

Good news!! A large order of Copics is expected to arrive tomorrow but that's not the best news,
I will be lowering the price of the markers. The ciao are going from $5.20 - $4.95 and the sketch are going from $7.40 - $6.95.

Also we are expecting Bo Bunny hopefully by the weekend and we are in the midst of receiving the newest Fancy Pants Collections as well as re-stock of the newest Kaisercraft collections. These are so nice. I am loving them!! Especially the 6x6 pads.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, the Tim Holtz "fades" arrived. These are embossing folders a la Tim Holtz. The newest Big Shot Pro dies have also arrived, as well as the newest cuttlebug embossing folders.

So much fun stuff. Seeing is believing!

June 1st already!!!

Hi there,

Well we have a busy month planned as far as classes go. Firstly for all of you Copic marker collectors, we are having a shading with copics class on Monday. I will be taking this one! Our newest teacher Erin, (once a design team member), will be showing us how to do shading with copic markers. I have always marveled at how well she gets the shading and lighting in her images, especially in the hair. We will be creating 3 cards but the focus will be on the coloring. Anyone who wants to come color with me , just call the store and register. When you call, mention that you want to color with me and I will have a little surprise for you at the class.

Next, we are fortunate enough to have Kelley Grace offering classes at the store again. Last fall her classes were enjoyed by many. No one left disappointed, most wanted more,more,more. So this time Kelley will be offering 3 classes. All 3 are so cool that it would be hard for me to decide which one to take. I will definitely be attending these. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Lately I am just dying to learn more and play with all the fun things. Kelley has been teaching stamping classes for many years and I know that she is always full of interesting little tricks to teach us. If you sign up for all 3 you will save 10% on each class.

We have our usual monthly intro class as well as our card class and 3 page layout class. The card class will be featuring distress inks and the layout class will focus on different ways to use ribbons on your pages.

Last, but never least are our project classes. We have our bookbinding class where we are making a spiral bound, re-usable notebook. Our other project class is our altered tote class. In this one you will be using the Claudine Hellmuth line of paints, Donna Downey large foam stamps, grungepaper, glimmer mist and soooo much more. You will get messy so please dress accordingly.

I hope to see everyone at a class soon.
