{so sweet} altered tray class…

i’ve got one more valentine’s day class that i will be teaching…

{so sweet} altered tray…

2014 valentine altered tray - tray wm

this project starts off with a tray full of domino shaped wood pieces. the pieces are then covered with photos and LOTS and LOTS of embellishments: metal, ribbon, lace, flowers, buttons, chipboard, bakers twine, stickers, pages from romance novels, goodies from maya roads and trinkets and treasures from my stash.

here’s a collage with closeups of some of the details…

while putting this project together, you’ll also learn a few techniques that you can use on your scrapbooking or other papercrafts. we’ll be playing with inks and more from Clearsnap: ColorBox Archival Dye Inks, Chalk and Pigment Inks, Stephanie Barnard Dye Ink Sprays, Sprinkles! Chunky Glitter and stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop.

the date and deets for this class haven’t been finalized yet, but it will probably be scheduled towards the end of january. the class will be held at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels.

this project is perfect for a gift or to keep, for friends, family or romances – you’ll be able to customize it to your purpose. i used photos of my son and his girlfriend taken before their homecoming dance.

stayed tuned or better yet – subscribe to my blog for updates on this class. i’ll be posting all the details as soon as i get them!

thanks,

comments…

i WELCOME any and all comments to my blog except those that are SPAM!

i had my SPAM filters set fairly mild so that i wouldn’t accidentally prevent any “honest” comments.

BUT — my blog seems to have become a target for tons and TONS of spam this past week. i can’t even begin to tell you how many comments that i’ve had to go in and delete as they were getting past my spam filter.

i hope there is a special place in HE-double hockey sticks for the people – and i use that word LOOSELY – who don’t have anything better to do with their time.

so, due to all this nonsense, i’ve had to set my spam filter at a higher level. i don’t think is should prevent any legit comments, but if you DO have trouble posting, PLEASE let me know.

i don’t appreciate having to jump through hoops when i try to post a comment on a blog, and i don’t expect or want any of MY readers to do so.

thanks!

my vintage Christmas collection…

i hope you are all enjoying the holiday season and are making your lists, shopping and indulging in some holiday treats!

i was adding a new project to the Clearsnap Blog and i mentioned my vintage Christmas collection. i thought i’d post some pictures of my treasures here.

i have SO many items in this collection that my house isn’t big enough to put it all out anymore, so i have to pick and choose the best and brightest.

i try to create separate little vignettes: angels, elves and santas and snowmen with a few of my handcrafted items mixed in…
