Class #1
Family Mist-a-bles Page

Time:  10:00 a.m. 
Saturday 10/15

Create this beautiful page from "Pink Projects" using the wonderful new Mist-a-bles line from Pink Paislee.  
Using their new papers, ribbons, flowers, sprays and more you will learn
new techniques and have great fun in the process! 

Class #2
Wooden 9-Drawer Box

Time:  11:00 a.m.
Saturday, 10/15

Using paints, inks, embossing templates, resist stamping, dies, embossed metal, wooden details, 
vintage papers and buttons and sooo much more 
create a project that is not only beautiful but extremely functional and a perfect Christmas Gift.

Class #3
Papillion Canvas
$20.00 ($40.00 if you want the stamp set)

Time:  2:00 p.m.
Saturday, 10/15

Create a one of a kind art canvas using the beautiful 
Papillon stamp set by Tim Holtz as well as tons of his metal and glass embellishments.  
A beautiful piece of art this photo just doesn't do justice.

Class #4

Configuration Box


Times: 9:30 a.m.
Saturday 10/15 
10:00 a.m.
Sunday, 10/16
(this is a 2-part class due to drying time)
Using one of Tim Holtz's configuration boxes create a one of a kind piece of art.  

Because of the interchangeable boxes, 
no two will end up alike.  
These little works of art are addicting and can be created for any theme.  
A large variety of supplies and embellishments will be available to customize your box 
including metal pieces, filmstrip, flowers, bottles, tapes and more.

To make this project even more personal, plan to include some of your own special photos and ephemera.

Class #5
Framed Art
$22.00 (does not include frame)

Time:  4:00 p.m.
Saturday 10/15
This project created by the talented Jess Mutty is the inspiration for your one-of-a-kind piece of art.
So bring your 8 x 10 (or slightly larger) frame, a couple of small photos and get creating.
Because we will be using the beautiful resist papers from Pink Paislee and stains from Tim Holtz, 
you will be able to personalize each section with colors that match your decor.  
Such a fun and unique piece you'll want to create several.
(A small number of frames will be available for an additional $5.00--sign up early if you need one)

Class #6
Accordion Birdcage 
$ 16.00

Time:  7:00 p.m.
Saturday, 10/15

Inspired by the talented "Gypsy Girl" and using the birdcage album from Maya Road, the beautiful Conservatory line from 7 Gypsies, 
vintage images & music paper, grungeboard, inks, buttons, and more create this multi-panel 
accordion project.  Full of inspirational and uplifting thoughts,  
this is the perfect piece for that special friend that needs a little lift.  
The photo shown is only two sections out of six and definitely doesn't do this little gem justice.

Class #7
Tags to Cards

Time:  11:00 a.m.
Sunday 10/16

In this class create these three and one other fabulous distressed tags using Tim's stamps, 
inks, ribbons and embellishments. Then turn these beauties into cards for one- 
of-a-kind pieces of art you won't want to give away.
