This is going to be a very fun week at Art 'n Soul. We are beginning the Dreamweaver Stencil Demo Week and Trunk Show starting on Tuesday, August 6. We encourage you to make time to see the new stencils and dies from Dreamweaver, and to watch the free demonstrations on the artful ways to use your Dreamweaver Stencils.

What is a trunk show? The manufacturer sends us their products in the latest and most popular designs for us, the retailer, to display and sell for a given time period. Often times the store will plan demo's, as Art 'n Soul has with the Dreamweaver Stencils, and any other activities that will promote the sale and use of their products. Activities might also include a special appearance by the designer or owner as well. Art 'n Soul had a very successful Trunk Show and Demo with Lifestyle Crafts at the end of April.

Have you seen the latest stencils and dies? I showed some on the blog earlier after the CHA show. Here are more beautiful and fun stencils designs from Dreamweaver! The fun part for us is that we don't know what Dreamweaver Stencils sent us to sell at the store. So, if we don't have exactly what you want, we can order what you want during the show!

And look at the beautiful cards that have been made with Dreamweaver Stencils!

So here's the Dreamweaver plan . . .

  • Tuesday, August 6, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. -- Marj will demonstrate a fun, "double glitter" technique. Come by on your lunch hour and have a look. There will be drawings for door prizes, and you can ask Marj about stenciling questions you might have!
  • Tuesday, August 6 All Day -- Dianne will demonstrate how easy and fun it is to zentangle with Dreamweaver Stencils.

  • Wednesday, August 7 All Day -- Dianne will continue to demonstrate how easy and fun it is to zentangle with Dreamweaver Stencils.

  • Thursday, August 8, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. --  Marj will highlight some of the artistic and fun techniques using Stencil Pastes. Bring any questions you have, and have a chance at the drawings for door prizes.

  • Saturday, August 10 -- Lynell Harlow, owner and designer of Dreamweaver Stencils will be at Art 'n Soul to demonstrate the various techniques she uses with Dreamweaver Stencils. An extra bonus is that she also is bringing her husband, Wayne! He's the one who started zentangling inside the Dreamweaver Stencils and Wayne will be at Art 'n Soul to demonstrate how he zentangles his way with Dreamweaver! And I know both will be more than happy to answer questions you might have about the stencils, dies and techniques!

What a way to start the month, right?

Hidden within the week is the Art 'n Soul Journal Club meeting on Friday, August 9, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join in.

The Graphic 45 Halloween collection, Steampunk Spells, is on its way! I'm hoping it will be here by the end of the week. 

I love it when the week involves so much going on at Art 'n Soul, don't you? We certainly hope so because we need you to make it all happen by stopping in at Art 'n Soul throughout the week. Because you know . . . it IS all about YOU!
