Valentine Banner Class added

I am teaching this class at Scrapbooks Too in Bloomington from 2-4pm on Saturday. February 2nd.

Learn some new techniques or refresh your skills while making this fun 
home decor project.  This red and white banner features Sizzix dies, Tim 
Holtz stamps, lots of Valentine papers, embellishments and ribbon!  T he 
red and white banner is approximately 3 feet long, but with the 
streamers and the ability to stretch it you can easily pull it out to 
four or five feet.  The pennants are 6" high and the thickest one is 
about 1 inch.    Bingo card saying and vintage valentine will vary in 
each class kit. The photo does not begin to do it justice but this 
project has a lot of depth and cute details.   It looks darling hung 
above a fireplace, in a kitchen or even an office cube.  It is the 
perfect gift for yourself, your sweetheart, your kids, your grand-kids 
or someone you know who needs a little special love this Valentine's Day.

Please bring to class :  craft mat, scissors, craft pick, personal 
paper trimmer, adhesive, a 1/4" hole punch, pop dots and brown distress 
ink for edging - vintage photo or tea dye are two good choices and a 
large eye needle if you have it.
 See you tomorrow!

TH January 2013 Tag Entry

 The January version and my Christmas version.  I am doing 2 each month so that I end up with 12 Christmas tags in December.  Didn't have the word stamp Tim used, but like this one from another set just as well!

New Classes!!

I am teaching again!!  Can't wait to see everyone...and hopefully some new faces too!

First up in a Tim Holtz tag class at Scrapbooks Too in Bloomington next Saturday from 10 til noon.  Class is $20.

I will teach this every month.  It will feature Tim's Tag of the Month as well as a tag based on his design with a Christmas theme.  By doing it this way you will have 24 finished tags in December, 12 generic and 12 Christmas tags.  The Christmas tags can be displayed on a canvas as a piece of holiday decor, made into a great mini book, used on cards or as deluxe tags for your Christmas gifts.  You can post your tag on his blog each month and be eligible to win prizes from Tim!  He does a random drawing each month from all the people who submit a link with a tag inspired by his tag of the month - and trust me, you'll want to enter!  Having won a prize box from him I can tell you it will be fabulous...even his labels are cool!  You don't have to sign up for every class, just sign up when you like the tag or want to learn the technique.  This month's tags feature Distress Stains, Distress Inks, embossing folder tricks, basic stamping and really cool stamping on seam binding.  Class is $20.  What to bring?  Scissors, whatever you use to put gems on, adhesive, including pop dots, and if you own it:  craft mat, heat gun, walnut stain distress ink and blending tool, faded jeans distress ink and blending tool, craft pick, and edge distresser.  Call Scrapbooks Too to sign up.

I am also teaching at Anchor Paper in St. Paul.  I am having a Valentine banner class on Saturday, Febraury 2 from 9:30-11:30.  Class is $25.

The banner is red and white, features Tim's new dies, lots of Crate Paper and Authentique and fun embellishments.  It is 3' long but can stretch to a little over 4' to fit your space.  It looks darling hung above a fireplace, in a kitchen or even an office cube.  It if perfect gift for yourself, your sweetheart, your kids, your grand-kids or someone you know who needs a little special love this Valentine's Day. You need to bring to class:  scissors, paper trimmer, adhesive, craft pick, brown (I used tea dye, but whatever your preference is should work) distress ink and blending tool, 1/4" hole punch, and pop dots.  Some of you do not live in the metro area and I know winter driving can be a challenge so I will do kits for this class.  If you would like a kit mailed to you, including photos and simple instructions, it is an extra $3 for postage -please contact me directly.  It is a project you could do at home...just more fun in a class!  Call Anchor Paper to sign up for the class.
