child’s stenciled apron on Clearsnap Blog

hi!

i added a project to Clearsnap Blog last week using some of the same products and techniques we will use in the “GET CRAFTY” class on november 2 at Stamp Antonio

kids apron - ann butler_crafters ink_colorbox_clearsnap_altered apron_childs apron_stencils_inking stencils_the crafters workshop_tami sanders - apron wm

the class fee of $18 includes a canvas tote, but there will be other things available for additional purchase like this child’s apron, adult aprons and more totes. all priced at under $8 each. so you can come and make as many items as you like during the 4 hour workshop. this really takes the cost of each item you make WAY down! and these items make FAB-U-LOUS, personalized gifts for the holidays.

you can view the details of this apron here: Clearsnap and Ann Butler

class updates…

first, a BIG thank you to everyone who took my steampunk spells altered book class! the class was FULL a week in advance – this really, REALLY helped me prep-wise as i was able to start getting ready for the class EARLY! i hope you all enjoyed the class and are working on your book. i mentioned in class that i would send you larger pics from the class. i decided to just post all the pics in a private page here on my blog. if you attended the class and would like bigger pics, send me an e-mail {click contact me on the tab above} and i’ll send you the link to the page.

i have 2 classes coming up at stamp antonio on 11/2…

BOHO CHIC acrylic mini album from 10:00 to 1:00, cost $35…

a plain acrylic mini album gets quite a facelift using the NEW! Bohemian Bazaar from Graphic 45. Bohemian Bazaar is bright, fun and WHIMSICAL, and whimsical is the feeling i tried to capture in the design of this album! lots of unique touches from my vintage stash. and we’ll be stamping wispy scroll designs on the ends of all the pages using the NEW! Surfacez Inks from Clearsnap! this album would make a fab holiday gift! the color and style make it the perfect present for your favorite free spirited gal: sister, daughter, granddaughter or friend. fill it with photos or gift it empty, either way it’s sure to be appreciated.

then, from 2:00 to 6:00 we’ll be having a “get crafty” workshop

2013 - crafters class - collage (1024x791)

{photos show samples of the types of designs you can make, your project will be uniquely your own!}

we’ll be using ColorBox Crafter’s Inks and stencils by The Crafter’s Workshop to embellish a tote bag. you’ll learn tips and techniques on how to use and combine the stencils to customize your own unique design and create a personalized tote for yourself or for a gift. you can stay for as long as you like and embellish additional items {aprons, child aprons and totes will be offered for $8 or less}. this class is a REAL bargain a $18 – which includes all the supplies and 1 tote. BUT, for an even better value, plan to come and make several items. you will want to arrive at 1:30 to see demos and to learn several techniques.  you do NOT have to BE an artist to FEEL like one! the stencils and inks are easy to use and you’ll be amazed at the wonderful designs YOU can create! this is a great opportunity to “play” with these products, i have DOZENS of stencils in a BIG variety of styles and themes. you can also put what you learn to work on your scrapbook pages, cardmaking and mix’d media projects. plan to come and have FUN getting INKY!

please call STAMP ANTONIO at 210-764-7900 for more info or to sign up! 

now, on to some other class news…

memory box card class 10/26: this class has been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts, hopefully jean and i can get together for a memory box class soon!

graphic 45 classes: 12 days of christmas: this was the collection that most of you voted for doing a project with. unfortunately, i was not thrilled with the actual “construction” of this line. i had envisioned doing something “12 day” themed, but the papers are designed with each day taking up 1/2 of the page. i just could NOT come up with a project that i thought would work with this line :(

graphic 45 is releasing several new lines next week, including a valentine line called, Sweet Sentiments. it has been quite awhile since i did an altered book for valentine’s day/love. any interest in that?

thanks for your interest!

classes this week…

it’s a busy, busy week this week as far as classes go!

carolyn at Stamp Antonio will be teaching my PhotoFull and Money $aving Sketches classes for me tomorrow morning. i dropped off all the sample layouts and directions and went over everything with her tonight, so things should go smoothly tomorrow.

i’ll be doing the layouts and sketches for the Money $aving $ketches class, so the instructions will look like they used to – for those of you who have been taking this class awhile.

this saturday, october 12, i’ll be teaching 2 classes at Scrapbook n’ More in New Braunfels – both are projects have the holidays in mind.

first up, from 10:00 to 12:30 is a “watercolor” poinsettia decor piece

poinsettia collage2 (1024x1024)

 

in this class you will learn how to use ColorBox Archival Dye Inks as watercolors. but don’t feel that you need any “artistic” or “watercolor” experience to join in. this technique is easy-peasy and will have you FEELING like you are an artist in no time. vintage mercury glass beads and goodies from my stash bling up the plain black frame. cost is $20.

then from 1:30 to 5:30, we’ll be having a “get crafty” workshop

and then on sunday, october 13, i’ll be teaching my “Steampunk Spells” altered book class at Stamp Antonio. i was able to squeeze in a few more slots, but the class is completely full at this point. we’ll have “snack” time about halfway through class, but i want to really power through this class so you can get as MUCH of your book DONE IN CLASS as possible! i look forward to seeing you sunday! be ready to get BUSY and get MESSY!

thanks!
