Christmas in July and August: Let it Snow!

 

 

What’s more refreshing than the thought of cold crisp snow in the middle of a hot New Jersey summer? We’ll make three bold holiday cards featuring a variety of tiny dies with BIG style, including Tim Holtz’s “Mini Snowglobes” and Sizzix Sidekick “Winter” sets. Please note that some of the components really are small, so students will definitely want to bring their tweezers, fine-tipped adhesive and reading glasses!

Supplies:  please bring your basic class kit along with tweezers and a fine tipped adhesive

Cost: $20

Hand Lettering: Fake It Til You Make It:

 When it comes to beautiful brush lettering there is (alas) no substitute for practice, practice, PRACTICE. But… Lauren knows one or two excellent “cheats” that will instantly make your own lettering (or even your stamps and diecuts!) look more polished. Part of it just comes down to having the right tools for the job and knowing how to use them; factors which we will explore while making two beginner-friendly 5×7 panels that students can make into cards, journal pages or decor after class. All supplies and pens to practice with will be provided, however students who own brush pens are welcome to bring their favorite colors to class!

Supplies:  please bring your basic class kit.
