New Classes

Here's a peek at some of the new classes I've designed and am teaching at The Little Blue House.  
First up is a shabby, vintage altered canvas mini book.  The covers are corrugated cardboard and five pages are canvas, handsewn by me.  (There is absolutely no sewing in the class itself, which will make many customers happy!)  The book also includes an acrylic and a chipboard page, lots of lace and flowers and stamping.  This is so versatile - can be used for a Valentine/sweetheart book, a wedding book, friends' book, baby book or even a Mother's Day tribute.

 Next is a card class, jam-packed with lots of great techniques. Don't you just love that chandelier?!

Another card class, using PK Glitz fabulous glitter and their printed acetate.  Students will learn how to use these products and even receive a free set of micro tips for the glitter glue.

This class is the next in our seasonal block series.  Last fall we started this with the base and blocks and the first tag set was for Halloween. Since then we have taught tags for Autumn, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter and now Valentines Day.  I designed this set.  I love the addition of Ten Seconds Studio art metal for the key and the keyhole and the two-color glitter heart really sparkles.

The perpetual calendar was a collaborative effort among Tracy,Elaine and I.  I love the frame treatment and the hanging tags are made from chalkcloth.  You can write on them with the new chalk markers and then change them up whenever you like!

Our focus in January has been on organization, so this class was created to help keep desks organized and clutter-free.  We again utilized the chalkcloth (it's awesome!) for the labels and the Lazy Susan can be made to coordinate with each individual's workspace.

There are still more classes which you can see and read more about on the Little Blue House blog.  If you are local, stop by anytime to see these great projects in person!
