New Classes Announcement!

Hey friends, hi!

I’ve got some news to share with you today!  If you follow Love is in the Details on Facebook or Instagram, then you likely already know that I’ll be heading up to Canada soon, and bringing with me 3 new classes that I’ll be teaching in early July!  The classes will be held over 2 consecutive days so that if you are coming from a distance and want to take in all three, you’ll be able to do so conveniently.  Here is an outline of each of the classes.

Hollyhocks and more!

Cards, gift card holders and a watercolor painting!  In this class we’ll use the hollyhock die from Impression Obsession to create a card and a framed piece of art. We will also do some stamping and coloring to create two gift card holders.  The stamps I’ll be sharing with you are from Jane’s Doodles.  Jane is Croatian; she grew up in Canada, lives now in Croatia and I’m on her design team.  She’s a sweetheart, and a talented artist whose products Lori will so be carrying in the store and you’ll be able to purchase her stamps at 20% off when you sign up for the class!   Finally, I will teach you a partial embossing technique to create another card with die cut flowers and leaves.  Besides the usual finished projects you’ll take home, your class fees will also give you your own die set to keep, as well as a frame for your art!

Summer Fun and Beach Holidays!

The next class is a mini album!  I’ll be showing you a simple but unique way to cut and fold 12″x12″ papers to create a multi-layered and edged album and we will be embellishing it with Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel Off stickers that I will be teaching you how to color and blend.  The colors of the album are bright primary and secondary colors because the theme will be your choice of Summer Fun or Beach Vacation. Perfect colors for those themes, right??  Once again, there will be a ton of product that is yours to keep besides the finished project!

Watercolor Painted Inspiration Book!

This is a class that is inspired by my own recent attending of a class that relit my creative fire and I hope it will do the same for everyone who takes this class!  I’ve altered the project to give it my own style, which I will be sharing with you.  I’ll be demonstrating each of 15 watercolor elements, providing all the tools needed to duplicate the same, (including all the supplies to take home after the class is finished) and encouraging each student to discover their artist within!  This will be a 6 hour class with a break for lunch and at the end you’ll have a handmade journal perfect for inspiring quotes, lists of gratitudes, or whatever you like!  We will make embellishments for the book and learn some basic Zentangle and lettering skills.

Shake it up!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Mom’s out there!!

Today is extra happy for me, the Jets one last night…..but even better my youngest came home from his school trip to Quebec!  He had lots of fun and some amazing experiences during his week there!

Back in April when I went to one of the LIITD weekend crops I did a demo of some new product Lori brought in for me…Lindy’s Magical Shakers!  These are a great die powder with amazing color selection!  I love that you don’t have to worry about them drying out or the spray nozzle getting clogged!  When you first shake the powder on your project they don’t look like much, but as soon as you add water the magic really happens!

Bavarian Blue

Afternoon Delight Denim

Bratwwurst Brown

I love the flecks of different colored pigments in these shakers giving a unique look to your project!

Quite often when I create I don’t really have a plan, I just pick some products I want to use and go from there.  When I started this I knew I wanted to use the shakers for color, then I dug through a basket of some older stash and pulled out these Prima wooden door embellishments.  I love the blue & yellow together!

I also dug out some old ephemera, but it wasn’t quite antiqued enough for me so I added a layer of Tim Holtz Vintage Distress Collage Medium.  Another product I haven’t used nearly enough!

Remember my last post I talked about using your packaging……well I used some more  on this  project too!  I had kept a few pieces of packaging from some Tim Holtz stencils, I loved the worn looking paper.  I pulled those out of my stash to cut out the floral pieces using some Tim Holtz dies!

The rusty corner piece has been sitting on my desk for…oh I don’t even know how long…I think it was for a different project that never got finished, but I went perfectly with this one!

I really love how striking the blue background created using the Lindy’s Magical Shakers is so bright to show off all the other elements I used!

This was fun to make, just playing with both new & old products on my desk!  Remember not every project needs to be a masterpiece, sometimes you just need to play!

I hope you all enjoy a wonderful day spending time in the beautiful weather with the ones you love!
