Altered Tag Make n Take

This is the altered tag for this month.
So for just $2.00 come in tomorrow between 2:00 and 4:00pm and make this little cutie.
I may just alter the metal embellishment in the morning using the NEW Tim Holtz White Alcohol ink, so the choice will be yours to leave it natural or age it!

You can take this class on Saturday from 11:00am-1:00pm for $25

The photo does not do this layout justice.
Soft Grey and Yellow with plenty of Glitter and creamy Pearls make this layout sophisticated.

Make and Take Murder.

A customer told me about this series of books today. They're murder mysteries starring a couple of everyday scrappers. I've bought this one and am looking out for the rest (Paper, Scissors, Death will be next LOL). They look like fun! And I think Joanna Campbell-Slan is from around these parts.

It's already given me some ideas about how to deal with Rosemary if she gets out of hand in the future!

Love the layouts as well

Today's Magnolia Class

Today was our Magnolia Hot Air Balloon Bungee Jumping Tilda class

If you want to read the story about why Tilda was Bungee Jumping
and what a jerk Edwin is click here


After I did the story I put Tilda back in the hot air balloon basket and figured that is how we would make the art piece in the class (no bungee jumping).
Just a sweet couple in love taking a romantic balloon ride


in today's class, everyone want to make Tilda Bungee Jump
heeheeheehee, I am such a bad influence

I have an evil plan for the couple for October's class.

Just call me . . . .

Stay Tuned . . .

Melt Art with Ranger and Tim Holtz

I was lucky enough while in Chicago to take a
Melting Pot Class
taught by Tim Holtz and sponsored by Ranger

Ranger has streamlined and redefined the Melt Art Line.
If you are looking for the UTEE in Red, Poppy, Green, Tiger Lily or any of the other colors including Pearl then hurry to the store as they are no longer going to be offering them.

Colors that are available are Black, White, Gold, Platinum, Clear and I think Bronze

Here I am making a mold with one of Tim's Buttons
You can make a mold from just about anything and it is so easy.
We used this mold to make a fabulous ring.

Shrink film, Alcohol ink and some of Tim's stamp images make this a unique piece of art
I made this adorable pin using Prima Flowers and Clear UTEE.
Add it to the front of a hand made card and it also becomes a gift.
This would also make the perfect piece on the front of your Altered Album.

I have a lot more pieces in the store that we made in the class so ask us to show them to you when you come in. Next week we will set them up in a permanent frame in the UTEE area

Remember if you want UTEE in Red, Poppy, Green, Tiger Lily or any of the other colors including Pearl then hurry to the store cos once they are gone they are gone.

You can see some more images from the class on the Ranger Blog

Good night everyone

Ranger and Tim Holtz

Today I was fortunate enough to take two classes with Tim Holtz.

The first one was called Ranger Avenue

It was a very inspiring day, where we made three different doors with three different teachers using Ranger Products.

Here is the door I did with Tim Holtz
This is the door I made with Jenni Bowlin
and the door I made with Claudine Helmuth
They join together on the side to make a village.
You can see them up close when I get back to the store.
Each door has been signed on the back by Jenni, Tim and Claudine

It was a fun class
I will tell you about our second class later tonight, it was very very inspiring.

Today is filled with shopping for lost of good stuff for the store and a class with Graphic 45
Talk to you later
