G45 "Seasons" Step Cards For January 2018

Happy New Year everyone!

I know it's not New Years yet, but this will be the first class I will be teaching for 2018 will be this Graphic 45 class. We will be using the gorgeous "Seasons" paper to create 4 different step cards! You will learn how to make these step cards in class with instructions to take home with you so that you can make more A7 (5 x 7) step cards! If you love this Graphic 45 paper, be sure to get your order in to Stacey before the paper is sold out or discontinued. There is so much you can make with this paper!

There will be homework for this class which should be available around December 28th or so, to give you some time to do your fussy cutting. You will need a few extra things for class, so be sure to keep the list of what to bring somewhere safe, or Bookmark the newsletter or post!

PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Paper trimmer (no guillotines - if you have only a guillotine then bring a craft knife and ruler), scissors, a 12 x 12 scoring board with all 1/8" intervals and a scoring tool, bone folder, liquid glue, dbl sided adhesive tape, dimensionals/foam squares or tape, mini-glue dots, and a shimmer pen of some kind.

WHEN: Saturday, January 6th
TIME: 12:30 - 4:00
COST: $45 + GST

To register for the class, contact Stacey - or 778-533-4290.

This is what we will start with (in ivory card stock)-

...and this is what we will end up with.





I did not yet have the Ivory Burlap String yet so had to make due with a heavier hemp string in white. I hope to change that out once it is in stock at the studio.

I look forward to the fun we will have learning to make these four different Step Cards and assembling with this gorgeous "Seasons" paper collection. I hope you will too. See you in class!

Class Photos - Spellbinders Fall Leaves with Oxide Inks

Sharing with you some more class photos. Everyone had so much fun in class creating these cards using Spellbinders "Fall Leaves" with Oxide Inks! Everyone was amazed at how the leaves would look when die cut from a piece of yardstick blended with beautiful Oxide colours.

These three cards were created with the focus on a piece of card stock that measured 6" x 12" and ink blended colours.

See how everyone's cards are a little different.

We layered four layers of die cut card stock for each of the die cut sentiments 'thankful' using the Xyron Sticker Maker.

Thank you ladies for such a fun class. It was a joy to see you create your cards in class. Hope that you all have fun creating more cards like this using your Spellbinders Dies.

Next Spellbinders class - Layered Poinsettias!

Happy creating!

Class Photos - 2nd Watercolour Pencil Class

This post will be a little different because I took a to of photos during this class. I narrowed down the photos to these ones for two reasons. 1) some of the photos were really blurry and not clear, and 2) there were just too many. So for those of you that were in this class and you do not see as many of your creations in this posting, those are the reasons.

I do, however, want to say how impressed I was with those that took the class. For some of you this was only the second time you issued your watercolour pencils, and I just want to say how impressed I was with everyone's creations! The next watercolour pencil class will be this one. I look forward to seeing your creations there too.

In class we created two scenes with the same stamp (Penny Black "Snowy Hamlet"). One was a sunset, and the other an evening view. So I will just leave you to browse through the photos, and some of them still are not that clear, but I chose to post them anyway. I am still having problems adjusting to taking photos with mu iPad mini rather than a camera.

Beautiful work ladies!

Looking forward to the next Watercolour pencil class!

Happy creating everyone!
