This last weekend at Art 'n Soul was a busy one with the Sandy Allnock classes on Saturday and the arrival of the Memory Box order. If you didn't have a pink sheet order, you might want to come into the store asap before all of the extra new dies disappear. I heard the classes were a great success -- unfortunately, I didn't get any pics from anyone!
Have you signed up for the Hasty Lace classes coming up this weekend? There is still room. Personally, I am so pumped to take the second class because the quilt designs that we're going to use can be viewed from either side . . . and each side looks totally different. Sandy Jackson has made fabulous new designs. Because Hasty Lace is so popular with Art 'n Soul customers, Sandy considers us the Hasty Lace "headquarters"! I'll be there for both classes and I hope you will be too!
Being able to see is important for this class! Bring your best detail eyewear/and or magnification if you need it, and a work lamp if you have it. Maximum of 8 students.
The second two hours will be devoted to making a paper quilt with one of the Scoring Templates and all of the new Pattern Templates. We will all use the same layout, but each person can choose the patterns to fill it in. The embossing is done on both sides of the vellum to set each motif apart and give the paper a wonderful texture. Colored vellum will be used for this project, so bringing a light tablet to work on is required. After making the design, we will add an embossed frame around it — a very useful technique to learn. A two-sided precut matte will be provided to finish the project on both sides; so that each side of the paper, which will have a different look, can be enjoyed. Maximum of 8 students.
Helene is always looking for a happy card. I thought this fit the bill from today's Magenta blog . . .

Earlier this month, Sherry posted a card she likened to
scrapbooking since a lot of her friends prefer scrapbooking. It just proves that both forms of design and materials from Magenta are inter-changeable.
