Please remember to bring your own basic tool kit, with your name on each item.  It should have:  detail scissors, tape runner, liquid adhesive, distress tool, paper piercer, ruler, pencil, tweezers, pop dots, stylus, scotch tape, etc.

Please arrive at least 5-10 min early for class, so we can start on time.

Thanks for reading and attending.  Remember, taking a fun class at ARTSY is very healthy and friend provoking for you!

Take care!

  1. WOOOOOW! You have so much to share in this one post!

    LOVE that toolbox-- love the papers and enamel dots;)

    And those birdies are just too precious! LOVE the glittered feathers:)

    ps... I just left a reply on the Virtual Smooches blog to your comment-- I wasn't sure if you got it! I've copied and pasted it here just in case! I appreciate you watching our videos and leaving some love/comments! Hope you have a fab day!

    Hey, Jan!

    Great idea to just attach the paper to the magnet first. I have to say that there are a couple of reasons why I didn't:

    1. It was really thick in the die cutting machine (I actually had to go buy a brand new Cuttlebug during this project!)

    2. There is a lot of waste with paper and magnets if you attach them together first. If you use the same paper for your entire project-- that might be a good idea. But since I was die cutting different sheets of paper/etc., it was best that I left them separate.

    I hope that you will try this technique and let me know if your idea works:) THANKS so much for checking out this video and leaving a comment! HUGS and BLESSINGS <3 Sav
