Mixed Media scrapbooking

I love the idea of breaking away from the traditional scrapbooking techniques we all started out with.

In this class I'll show you the same techniques to add some fun to your pages.

Wednesday Projects from Nikki

Good morning everyone... Nikki here and today is my day to show you some of the projects I have been working on using my newest Scrapdoodles stash!  

My first card features the most adorable Magnolia image, called Little Mermaid.  When I started to color this image, my intent was to match it with this perfectly beachy cardstock, but I soon found that this little mermaid has a mind of her own :)  Once I colored her in these colors, I couldn't imagine her any other way!  Since I didn't have the perfectly matched cardstock, I made my own by coloring the edges of the purple matted piece with the same colors I used on her fin.  Then I cut strips of the embossed blue cardstock from Bazill Basics and inked the edges again with a Copic marker.  Then to blend it a bit, I used the colorless blender pen and the result looks  a little aged and that it was supposed to be that way...  oh how I love it when that happens!  I finished the card by making a medallion out of the same cardstock I used on the background.  This image is so amazing (and so much fun to color!!) that I wanted it to be the star of the show!
Here is a close up of my Copic coloring and the sparkly detail I added with Stickles.
What I used: Copic Markers, Bazill Basics Swiss Dot Embossed cardstock, white cardstock, Stardust Stickles, Fancy Pants Rusted Sun Buttons, sentiment from Unity Stamps, image from Magnolia, embroidery floss, glue dots and May Arts ribbon.

My next project started out as a birthday party favor and wound up as a gift for my sweetie this Valentine's Day!  I started with a button keeper jar from Doodlebug Design, that I filled with chocolate hearts.  Then I made a scalloped white border for a strip of adorable cupcake paper from Little Yellow Bicycle and attached it around the body of the jar.
Next I added a ribbon around the neck of the jar.  I made a sentiment tag by stamping the sentiment and then trimming around it and attaching it with a pearl corsage pin that I colored using a Copic.  I curled the end of the pin with needle nosed pliers so that it won't poke anyone!
I colored and cut out a cupcake image and adhered it to the top of the jar.  I added stickles to make it glittery, just like the cardstock.
 Here is the finished product....
 What I used: Copic markers, Stardust Stickles, white cardsotck, Little Yellow Bicycle cardstock (Cupcakes Galore with Glitter), May Arts ribbon, Doodlelicious Design button keeper jar, Unity stamps (I'll Always Love You).

 My last project is a set of three tags that I was thinking would be fantastic to attach to Valentine treats for classmates or co-workers.  This cute little dragon image is also perfect for a prince or a princess!

What I used: Copic markers, Imaginisce stamp: Enchanted Collection (Dragon), Fancy Pants Rusted Sun buttons, Cardstock: Fancy Pants: About a Girl (Brooklyn), My Mind's Eye (Be Loved), We R Memory Keepers: Be My Valentine (Together), white gel pen, embroidery floss, May Arts ribbon, heart buttons from my personal stash.

I have always loved the colors of fall, and Imaginisce captured that feeling beautifully in their Apple Cider collection. It went surprisingly well with these pictures taken after one of Reid's soccer games.

I played around with the rub ons and circular elements to tie the whole layout together.

As soon as I saw the 3bugsinarug The Great Outdoors collection, I could not wait to use it for these camping pictures. We had so much fun toasting marshmallows by the fire and fishing, and this collection complimented those memories perfectly.

I chose to embellish the cardstock accents using eyelets and brads, which lended a little added character and dimension.

Gypsy Ballerina Class

I really have had fun working on this project. It is by far probably one of my favorite projects I've worked on in a while. I took the hard part which is the drawing & did it for you by making a template. You can make extra copies of your template for other projects but save one for the class. Techniques we will be using are messy which makes it all the more fun! Products we'll be
working with will be mod podge to decoupage, claudine Hellmuth paints for your background color, Tim Holtz distressing ink pads to give it that vintage look , & one of my favorite products by Ranger, Stickles to give it that sparkling finishing touch.
Class information: Saturday, February 5th at 1:30 $24
Please bring basic supply kit & any distressing ink pads you have

Happy Hump Day!

It's Hump Day! Come celebrate the New Year with Lori! $5.00 while supplies last.

When I was X Class with Kathy

Are important childhood events going by without you recording them? Our children grow up so fast and we’re so busy! So we need a quick and easy way to capture the memories not just the pictures. In this class, you will make 6 x 6 pages (20) to track one year of a child’s life. You’ll have information about the likes and dislikes, favorite movies, what they learned, favorite foods and much more! And you’ll have pictures, too!

You will learn that you can create a simple book child that traces important developments and changes in a year of a child’s life in just a few hours. Part of the simplicity is that you use papers you can mix and match and accenting them with no more than two colors of ink, pens, glitter, ribbon and eyelets/brads. This approach is so simple that you will be able to create one each year for each child in your life. Once your done simply put the pages in the album of your choice. You will get complete instructions and learn the technique so you can complete books for other children or for other years in just hours. Trust me I’ve done this for my nephew annually – he and his parents love them.

Due to nature of class, we need to know whether you are creating pages for boy or girl and the age you will be covering in your book. (The sample could be used for either a boy or girl, but there will be a more feminine version.)

Class info:
Date/Time: we will be offing this class at two times- February 16th at 6:30pm and February 22nd at 10:30am
Cost $22.00 (Includes all items to create pages but does not include album.)
Tools needed: Basic kit plus page rounder if you have one.

Please call or stop by the store to sign up today!
