Class: Dia de los Valentinos with Cheryl Valadez

I'm teaching a Valentine themed card class with a twist this Saturday.  We'll use traditional hearts and pair them with edgy calavera images to create beautiful yet unusual cards to express how much you care to the special people in your life.  Plan on getting dirty in this class as we will be dyeing seam binding, painting, and crackling.  If you walk out with clean hands, then that means we didn't have any fun ;D

Bring your class kit and make sure you have lots of adhesive handy.  Also, add a Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad and a sponge applicator.

This class is almost full, but if you wanted to take it and missed out, just contact Nancy at CP2 (884-8217) or email me directly at and we can schedule a "make-up" class.

January 22nd, Saturday:  1:00pm - 4:00pm (class fee is $25.00)

Class: Copic Primer w/ Cheryl Valadez

Join me Saturday afternoon and we'll discuss the wonder of all things Copic. This is not a project class.  Instead, we'll spend the day learning about these amazing tools, decoding the color wheel and the Copic numbering system, creating designs and textures with the Colorless Blender, and learning basic coloring and shading techniques. Bring your Copic markers, a notepad to take notes on, and something to write with. I received my Copic Certification in August 2010 and I can't wait to share what I learned with you!

January 8th, Saturday:  1:00pm - 4:00pm (class fee $25.00) please be sure you have your name on your markers...thank you!

If you don't have Copic markers, feel free to use mine ;D
