Kids are in School...let's CRAFT

 I rarely have anything to do with giving anything away so this makes it extra special!
As many of you know I was approached by Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine to create and teach 2 classes at the Calgary Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival.  I cannot express what a huge honor this is for me.  
Sizzix has been amazing and has shipped up all the mat board used for the classes and 2 BIG SHOTS I get to gift away!  Can you believe it... I love my Big Shot and this is so exciting.  I will pick one lucky crafter from each class to take this amazing gift home. 

I will be running 2 classes:
Vintage Gift Card Set
Reverse Canvas

Thank you to Eileen Hull


We will be creating the adorable Vintage Gift Card Set of 4 using Sizzix Designer Eileen Hull's Recipe Box Die.  She pointed me in the right direction for the mat board and helped me make connections.  But it was Sizzix that offered the Big Shots to the class. 

Vintage Card Set Class

The Reverse Canvas class is packed with technique, texture and lot's of Sizzix dies!

 If you can be apart of this fun event and want to sign up for my classes I would love to see you there.  I cannot wait to see 2 of my crafty peeps walk home with this awesome die cutting machine!   

   Needless to say I am humbled by it all.  See you there... :)

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

Black and White Christmas

Who says making Christmas cards this season has to take a long time. With these simple techniques you can easily whip up some cards and make it look like you spent a long time on them.  Loving this non traditional look with Black and White.

Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
