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!

February 26th, 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

At last check, this class was almost full.  If you wanted to take it, but weren't able to get in, just give Nancy a call at 884-8217 or email me at and let us know.  I teach this class from time to time and would be happy to schedule another in the near future if there is enough interest.

Wednesday, February 16, 2011 update of the latest and greatest!

Kathy Rosecrans is teaching a repeat of her lovely Vintage Images card class tomorrow (Thursday).  If you missed out on creating these wonderful cards during her regularly scheduled class, then call the store today and ask to be added to the roster.  The class features 3 stunning cards using some of the new Hero Arts images.  They are all "must haves" and the cards are perfect to add to your all-occasion stash for those impromptu card emergencies.  You know what I'm talking about...we all have!  The class starts at 1:00pm and the fee is $25.00.  See the samples here

Whatcha' up to Saturday morning?  Nothing?  Then swing by the shop and join Nancy for a fun-filled Zentangle morning!  Bring your paper and your preferred doodling implement, because those are the only tools you need to partake of this fun, free-form, completely organic art medium. If you can doodle, you can zentangle!!

Join Caroline Saturday afternoon and create 2 wonderful avian themed cards featuring nature images by Character Construction.  She combines layers of images, papers and embellishments together and the results are surreal and ethereal.  Throw in some great words and text, and you've got something special.  You'll also get a chance to see the Tim Holtz Alterations Rosette die in action.  There are so many uses for this terrific tool and Caroline shows you yet another, by showcasing her sentiment in the middle of one of these fun spiral shapes.  Bring your class kit.

Class: Heavy Metal Steampunk Heart with Cheryl Thorpe

Cheryl Thorpe brings you yet another stylistic steampunk project that melds Victorian sensibilities with science fiction.  She creates a fascinating juxtaposition of materials and imagery with her heavy metal wall art.  She'll show you how to conjure the illusion of industrial ephemera using a roll of aluminum foil tape combined with die cut cogs and gears.  Combined with the soft, feminine shape of a heart, the end result is nothing short of amazing!

Interest in this class has been off the charts, therefore Cheryl's Saturday class is full, however, she has graciously agreed to teach it this Friday to give more folks an opportunity to attend.

***Additional materials required:  Bring your class kit and a roll of Aluminum Foil Tape, a hammer, scissors, and E-6000.  The Aluminum Foil Tape can be purchased at any home improvement store, such as, Home Depot or Lowes.***  

February 11th, Friday:  1:00pm - 3:30 pm.  A few seats are still available, so please call CP2 at 884-8217 ASAP to snag one of the last remaining spots.  (Class fee $30.00).

Class: Traditional Valentines with Cheryl Valadez

Join me this Saturday afternoon and create 2 special Valentine's Day cards that are easy to make for family and friends.  We'll layer grand background images, and create a collage of color and pattern to rest our quirky, but cute bird subjects on.  A few elegant details make these cards appear unique and time consuming, but are actually quite simple to recreate.  Be sure you're not waiting for tools, by adding a Vintage Photo Distress Ink pad to your basic kit and your choice of a sponge applicator.  I hope to see you there ;D

February 5th, Saturday:  1:00pm - 4:00pm (class fee is $25.00)
