I hope you'll think about signing up for the Halloween card class next Tuesday evening, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Art 'n Soul. Here's the class information and 3 of the 4 cards that will be made in class. I apologize the class board won't go up until tomorrow (Friday) morning at the store; I've been homebound making every attempt to not let my sore throat become anything more than just that!

From the Graphic 45 blog . . . by one of the G45 Design Team members, Laura Dennison. A very clever technique!

Embossed Foam Squares Tutorial :

You will need foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives and embossing enamel in the color of your choice. Remove all the paper backing from the tops of the foam squares.

Don't overheat or you may melt the foam.

Apply your finished enameled foam squares to your project. The adhesive on the underside is still sticky!

Isn't that a clever tip? She used these on her project for Graphic 45:

Now check out this wonderful creation by Laura Denison! There's even a sweet tutorial! Here is what Laura had to say about this marvelous work of art!

"This fun hat box was made from one of the Graphic 45 Metal Film Canisters....expanded a bit! All of the plaids available in so many of the collections call out to me to become luggage. Not sure why since I have never owned a plaid suitcase in my life! LOL! I embossed the 3D foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives to make "studs" to enhance the hat box. I have given you a quick tutorial below on how to make them for yourself."

As all of us continue to prepare for the store's Christmas Party this month, we hope that you have reserved the afternoon of Sunday, October 23, from 1:00 to 4:00 so you may join us. New stamps and samples, munching goodies (of course!), and your typical 'good time' at Art 'n Soul.

Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
