Lotsa Layers Card Class

Hey guys!

Popping in quickly to share my upcoming card class with you.

This card class is being held the morning of my Lotsa Layers Mini Album class. They both feature…you guessed it…layering.

The mini album class is currently full but there is still room in the morning card class. For more class details click here.

This class will be held April 29th - 9:30-11:30.

My apologies in advance for the quality of these pictures…my lighting just did not cooperate.

I’ve chosen to feature the fancy Pants Design Golden days collection. Doilies, vellum, and Prima chalk inks will also be used.

Layering will of course be one of the main focuses during class. I ¬†know layering can be intimidating for a lot of people so I’ve kept these cards simple.

Dies & embossing folders complete the card designs as well as Nuvo drops.

The typewritten sentiments are optional. Meaning, you will have a small selection of phrases/greetings to choose from: happy birthday, thank you, & sympathy.

For the most part I’ve kept the card designs gender neutral to make them more practical.

If you’d like to register for this class please call the store this week or drop in to sign up in person. Hope to see you in class!

Lovely (SUN)Day

Yes, happy Sunday. And Lovely Day is what I’ve been working with recently.

This new Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E.

More rose gold (yeah!), bright colours, and puffy stickers make this collection magical.

Cute, right?!

I just KNEW I had to make something cool with these products…and I had a stack of honeymoon pictures to document.

So I made a mini album.

This album is filled with layers, texture, ephemera, and love. (Cheesy, I know.)

And…you bet it’s a class!

The spots are extremely limited due to supply quantities so book ASAP. The official details should be up on the classes page later today.

Also, if there is interest in this type of mini album we will have a later class with a different paper line. Let us know!

The class includes how-to make the album itself, some basic watercolours, and LAYERING.

Wallet sized -2×3- photos (at least 10-12 of ‘em) are a requirement.

This album could work with a lot of themes…not just honeymoon. Trips, kids, babies, school pictures, Instagram pictures, wedding, etc. etc. Whatever you like. Every album will be slightly different and it is customizable to fit your style.

We are also scheduling a card class on the same day so if you’d like to make a day of it make sure to book spots for both classes.

Even if you’re not up for a class you really should check out the Lovely Day collection in person. The papers are gorgeous.

You Are My Sunshine

Good morning! Brooke here with you today!

I have a quick blog post showing the NEW class I will be teaching at Love is in the Details!

I was working on a little somethin’ somethin’ at the store yesterday during the Minc demo. (Thanks for a great demo day, Norine!)

First things first…

Vintage buttons, NUVO, and song lyrics? Come on.

(Succulents not included.)

Fun fact, I propagated the succulent in the yellow jar from the leaf of one of my other plants. Propagation is actually so easy and you should really try it. If anyone needs succulent leaves to propagate you just let me know because I have a million to share.

I’m not quite sure why the lighting in the closeup picture got all wonky, but I was trying to show the dimension of the NUVO drops we will be using. Rain drops. With NUVO. Right?! And the border strips are the lyrics to…you guessed it…”you are my sunshine” typed on a typewriter.

The canvas was inspired by this card that I made for National Cardmaking Day:

I think the canvas would make such an adorable home decor piece or gift. Wait, who am I kidding? I would totally keep it for myself! It’s just too cute.

Speaking of cute…how sweet are my “photography assistants”?

(Cats are also not included in the canvas class. Disappointing, I know!)

Edith and Minerva love crafts more than anyone.

More details coming soon regarding this 8×10 canvas class! Stay tuned.

Have a lovely week, everyone!
