Colourized Frame Class with Crystal July 24 orJuly 31


Two dates available:
Session #1-Friday, July 24th 4:30-8:30
Session #2-Friday, July 31st 4:30-8:30
***Please note that duration will be shorter if only doing one frame***
Cost: $28 plus tax for one frame or $56 plus tax for both frames
Have you always been intimidated by the colorized dies by Tim Holtz? Don’t like fiddling with layers so you passed them by? Crystal did for the longest time too but now she is hooked! In this class Crystal will break down layer by layer, with colour coordinated directions that will walk you though step by step and she will let you in on some tips and tricks along the way to make these a breeze.
In this class you can choose to do the owl, bear, or one of each, complete with frames (Colour may vary).  At this time, we ask that there not be double ups of the choices due to classroom restrictions and limited availability of the kits but if there are kits left over and interest
, Crystal will run another date.
Call the store at 403-455-6772 to register.

Fun Friday with Pam

Mermaid Shaker Card 
Double sided articulating  tag cover
I used a glossy finish on the glass of the divers helmet
I am working on a Junk Journal signatures and insets for a swap.
 My partner has chosen a beach sea sand theme.
While I was working on the Mermaid Light box from last week.
 I came upon the idea for a shaker card.
 I cut out a window from a full piece of Graphic 45 paper, so that when I folded it, it would become the front of the box.
 I lined the opening securely on all 4 sides with double sided tape. Placed a piece of sturdy Mylar to the underneath. I fussy cut bits for the lower edge inside border ad secured them in place. Added sme fun sequins and shiny bits. Then double sided taped the inside again, just along the edge of the Mylar. Carefully securing all in place to make a sealed card.
NOTE: It needs to be flat so I did not pop it up with foam. This was cut from tag sheet with diver as one piece of paper so that the opposite side also folds
over the front and side to show a signature tag and frame for mylar.
 
Paper, frames page from pack of

Fun Friday with Pam

Mermaid Light Box



 
 The fish riding man is popped up on thick foam dot inside the box for a 3D effect. The pieces of coral and cut outs are also popped in various places.
 For a touch of sparkle I added in a few sequins. This also helped to disguise the occasional area not covered with pattern paper.
This little light box is a Michaels box that was purchased and altered to suit my idea. A lot of fussy cutting. It was an ocean theme balsa board light  box.
 I removed the Dolphin so I could place things in the box.
 I removed some of the pieces and used a heavy carpenters glue to secure most of the paper. It was a lot of fussy cutting and refitting. The paper is Graphic 45 'Voyage Beneath the Sea'
