Sign up Now for the Some-Assembly-Required Classes on Saturday, July 23

Before I forget, some of the Prismatic papers arrived today and are on the shelves! Hopefully the remaining colors will be arriving soon.

The card samples are now on display at Art 'n Soul for the Some-Assembly-Required Classes on Saturday, July 23. Owner and designer Sandy Jackson will be teaching you two different techniques. When I met Sandy at her home to pick up the samples, I was treated to a quick overview of some of her work and what she is planning to teach you later this month. We feel quite privileged that Sandy has agreed to teach these classes at Art 'n Soul because her busy show and design schedule doesn't allow much time for actual class instruction!


With a combination of show and tell and a series of small projects, we will explore the many ways to use Hasty Lace templates. Hands on will include embossing and coloring, piercing vellum or card stock, extending patterns, freeform edgings, and a framing project to make at home. You’ve seen Sandy at the shows, and fully admired her beautiful work. Now you can learn this beautiful art form for yourself!

 This is one technique I cannot wait to learn. The class is more technique than it is completing cards because of the time constraints. Trust me when I say the Hasty Lace templates are something you will want to add to your 'arsenal' of art supplies; while visiting with Sandy, I even ordered a laser-cut frame design she has. She not only designs the templates, she individually laser-cuts them as well.

Aren't they gorgeous?

I thought this was such a sweet design to put on
a card . . . the photo is covered with Hasty Lace design on vellum.
I could visualize a vintage holiday photo in this frame design
for a nostalgic Christmas card to family. This is the
laser template I ordered from Sandy. Below is a close-up of the framing design.

Saturday, July 23, 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm, Sandy of SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED“MAGICAL POP-UP DOVE CARD (AND A DOVE NAPKIN RING TOO!), $25

Learn how to make a Dove from Some Assembly Required. We will start by making the larger version of the dove and using it to make a lovely napkin ring. Then we will make the smaller version of the dove to put inside a very special card. When you open the card and turn it inside-out, the dove magically appears inside. We will learn how to make a slider mechanism to work the pop-up. As with the previous class, this is a class you will NOT want to miss!

will offer you different images to choose from. The stamp
for the front and inside was discontinued long ago.

Recycled Rubber starts at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday) morning and continues on Sunday beginning at 12:00 noon. Marj is looking forward to seeing everyone!

Art 'n Soul will be closed on Monday in celebration of the
Fourth of July Holiday!

Please, please, please! Remember to reserve next Sunday afternoon, July 10, for Art 'n Soul's 8th Birthday Bash. There are going to be great demo's, including one spectacular one by Marj . . . it's a secret and it's taking every ounce of willpower to NOT tell you what it is! Another secret is what John Peterson with Tsukineko will be demo'ing. And Gwen Evans is going to be at the party demo'ing Earth Art International stamps and Perfect Pearls. Sue discovered a new art medium, I found a couple of new tools, and Alissa will be working her magic with the glitters from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Lots of door prizes, discount balloon popping, and fun-fun-fun!
