The Dreamweaver Stencils' order that arrived the other day brings new opportunities for zentangling!
Please come in and see for yourself!
This is another month of "early" times. Recycled Rubber happens at the end of this week on Saturday, March 2, beginning at 10:00 a.m. And Easter Sunday is the last day of March . . . March 31. Let's not forget St. Patrick's Day on the 17th!
Inchie Arts sent us our order and that means more gift boxes to make for those special occasions coming up. Remember that wonderful class Lisa Lee taught before Christmas? Look at the latest gift boxes! So much happens in the spring when that 'special' box is needed. The boxes in this order come completely assembled; all you need to do is start your Inchie Art!
From Millsrepco featuring a Hero Arts Postcard . . .
"jacqueline.fr used the new Big Post Card stamp to create this tag shaped card. We love the soft and pretty feel and her delicate vellum butterfly."
From Tombow Markers . . .
From the Memory Box blog . . .
"Memory Box Dies are perfect for cutting flowers and felt - combine them, and create a stash of this simple card to have on hand for any occasion. Jean Okimoto here - sharing a quick and easy spring card featuring three of our newest dies - Trellis Border 98476, Fresh Foliage 98502 and Fabulous Phlox 98511.
I love the color of Citrus Tickle felt - it's a blend of synthetic and wool fibers and it's easy to cut too. Impress carries a beautiful selection of felt in great colors - perfect for diecutting into flowers, rosettes, leaves and labradors with Memory Box and Poppystamps dies.
On a totally different subject...here's a technique I shared on Clearsnap's blog - stamping the Madeleine Bird with a spring-ish blend of some new ColorBox pigment inks, then diecutting - view the details and directions here. It's a fun technique - with unique results each time!
Thanks for visiting!"
I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to those of you who took my Iris Folding class yesterday. It was the first one I had ever instructed. Catherine Woodard is known for her beautiful and classy Iris Folding card creations that she taught at Art 'n Soul over the years, and I'm quite humbled to follow in her trail, not filling both shoes yet but working on that first one! I learned a lot yesterday, too!
Time for a late but lite lunch . . . see you tomorrow!
