What Fun!

There are several of us who are enjoying the "Pan Pastel Passions" class by Marj; I took the afternoon class earlier today and another class was completed earlier this evening. The last of the 3 classes is tomorrow night (Tuesday), and you can still sign up. YOU won't believe the fun we had . . . we made 7 card tops using varying techniques with the Pan Pastels. Marj passed along several great tips in using, storing and caring for your Pan Pastels as well. After the class tomorrow night, I'll try to post pics of the card tops on the blog.

In her spare time, Marj made a sample card using Impression Obsession's stamp Stack of Books (H-1821), copic markers on the book stack, and Pan Pastels on the background. Notice how Marj combined two different embossing folder patterns for the layering cardstock that frame the stamped image. You'll find the sample on the sample card spinning rack.

The sample project is at the store from Helene for the second Magenta class on March 9 . . . my, oh my! You'll join Susie in her enthusiasm for this particular class project, especially if you look carefully. Helene has made 10 small note cards (with envelopes) and they are stored in the nicest portfolio she created using . . . what else! . . . papers from Magenta. Here is a sneak peek . . .

This is the closed portfolio; the ribbon ties on the other side as a closure.

I've pulled out 2 of the 10 cards that you will make.

I wish May 9 was next week! Sign up soon . . . the class is filling up.

Mary Esperanza was in the store today so we could see her beautiful Zentangle work. Mary used one of the Magenta chipboard birds as a template for the bird image. She then zentangled the bird in sepia ink, and used the Pan Pastels for the coloring.

Thank you, Mary, for sharing your artistry with us.

The Memory Box order arrived today. A new supply of pearl stickers awaits you. And 2 different 6x6 paper paks await you . . .

Tomorrow, I'll show you the 12x12 papers that arrived as well.

It's hard to believe it's March 7 . . . already! I'll be at the store tomorrow morning so Sue can take her grandson for his birthday breakfast, Toys 'R Us run, and birthday lunch tomorrow; he turns 4 years old!

See you soon!
