Ways with Zentangle $32
You've asked, so (finally) we have put together another Zentangle class for your "tangling" pleasure. Using stencils and mandala designs, you will learn some Zentangle patterns to incorporate into your outlines for some wonderful and striking designs. Please see the samples at the store to get an idea of what you will be doing in the class. The samples do not necessarily portray the exact designs that you will workwith, but provide a good representation. Please bring your basic kit and a 01 Micron pen. (If you need a pen, we just happen to have them at the store).

From Graphic 45, an instructional tip!

From Imagine Crafts, AIR Maureen Cronin creates a beautiful napkin ring with Tsukineko's new Tomato Vine Kaleidascope!

Hello copy 

"Today’s themed project highlights IMAGINE Crafts’ new Kaleidacolor: Tomato Vine

This is a great way to dress up any party table – custom napkin rings!
Cut a 7” x 2” strip of cardstock
Using IMAGINE Crafts’/Tsukineko Versamark, stamp the vine starting about ¾” from each end and emboss with clear powder
Using a brayer, ink with Tomato Vine Kaleidacolor and run the long way over the embossed image.
Run a paper towel over embossing to bring the vine image through.

Run white cardstock through die cut machine with Spellbinders Rose Creation dies
Using a dauber, color each layer of the die cut flower with Love Letter, Morocco & Peanut Brittle Momento, mixing colors for variety, edge with Rich Cocoa
Using a dauber, color leaves with Bamboo Leaves Momento, edge with Rich Cocoa and spray with Fireworks Cottage Ivy.
Adhere leaves under largest petal piece
Layer the petals and attach with a brad
Adhere flower to center of strip
At each edge of the long strip, about a ¼” from the edge,  cut ½ way in from the top of one end and the bottom of the other end – this will keep your ring closed.
This would also make a nice band on a gift box.

Happy Spring

by Donna Sledzik for Memory Box
"Hi everyone!  I would like to think of spring, since our forecast for this week-end is more snow! So let's get started with our card.
Memory Box Products used:
  • Blossom Bird Stamp #D1052
  • Happy Spring Stamp #B1215
  • Twelve Days #G1899
  • Contempo Circle Border Die #98451
  • Penne Frame #98378
  • Cardstock: Lagoon, Vanilla Bean, Kraft  and Parchment
  • Distressed Dots Cardstock:Vanilla Bean
  1. Ink Blossom Bird with Broken China Distress Ink and branch portion with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Stamp onto Parchment cardstock that was punched using a 1 1/2" plain circle punch.  Ink the music stamp with Vintage Photo Ink.  Off stamp it onto scrap paper, then stamp over image.
  2. From Lagoon cardstock punch a 1 3/4" circle.
  3. Using Vanilla Bean distressed dot paper, die cut the Penne Frame.
  4. Die cut the Contempo Border using Kraft cardstock. (a good tip for using intricate dies, is to place a piece of waxed paper between the die and your cardstock.  This helps release and cut those tiny pieces). 
  5. Ink all the edges of your cardstock with Vintage Photo Ink.
  6. Using your Vintage Photo Ink pad, swipe some color onto a craft mat or palette.  Water down the ink and using a paint brush spatter ink on the lagoon cardstock layer.  Stamp Happy Spring with Vintage Photo Ink.  I took my stamp off the wooden block by placing it in the microwave on high for 10 seconds.  Carefully peel it off the wood block.  I cut it in half and placed them on an acrylic block to stamp them.
  7. Assemble layers as shown in photo. Adhere to a Vanilla Bean Note Card. Glue pearls on sides of frame.
I hope you enjoyed this spring card!"

As I slogged my around town today, I was reminded that as much as I might not have liked the day's windy and horizontal downpour of rain, it was certainly better than what the middle part of our country is enduring right now. Although if you want a taste of the midwest's snowstorms, you could probably head to the Cascades this weekend according to the latest weather forecast.

If you'd like a break from the bleak and dreary wet of the outdoors, come on over to Art 'n Soul. Patti is at the store this weekend and she'd love to say 'hi'! We just received our order from Inchie Arts that included their new Art Boards. And Lisa Lee from Inchie Arts is returning to Art 'n Soul this April for another fabulous class . . .

Sunday, April 21, 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Lisa Lee from Inchie Arts -
