Class Descriptions
All Things Copic  NEW!
Special Guest Instructor: Sherrie Siemens
Fee: $35.00
 
In this class you will learn all things copic. What do those numbers mean and how do they help me in picking out markers that I want to blend? I will show you direct to paper blending techniques, fading away to whites. You will get to see and use the airbrush system for coloring flowers and sky. I will show you how to use that fabulous blender pen. We will make three wonderful and diverse cards at the same time I will be packing your brains with copic information. I have all the markers for you to play with so come and see what the buzz is about Copic! Please bring papercutter & scissors (if you have one). All other supplies included.  Non-refundable, non-transferable.

Back to School  NEW!!
Instructor:  Colleen Heidrich
Class Fee: $15.00  Supply Fee: $10.00
These papers from Scenic Route are perfect for getting some of those layouts started for school again!  Great primary colours that any kid will love!  These layouts coule be used for back to school traditions, the first day of school or pictures of kids reuniting with their friends!  Included in the class is a package of the matching chipboard and you'll have some leftovers to play with at home as well. 

Copic Workshop: Level I
Instructor: Tobi Crawford
Class Fee: $15.00  Supply fee: $5.00
Consider this your first introduction to everything Copic. If you find yourself wondering what papers to use, what ink, what end to use? Then this class is the first logical step. This class is even for those who aren't sure about these markers, and maybe just want to try them out! You will use the store's markers to get some hands-on experience. You will colour some stamped images for you to take home and use on cards, but note that you will not be making any cards in this class; this is all about the process!  All Supplies Included.
Copic Workshop: Level II
Instructor: Tobi Crawford
Class Fee: $15.00  Supply fee: $5.00
This is the second level of classes dedicated to learning all about Copic markers. If you've taken Copic I then you are ready for this class, OR if you feel like you have a handle on paper and ink selection, as well as general care for your markers (refilling, nibs etc) then you will feel at home in this class. We will start to "play" a little more in this class by learning some advanced techniques like direct-to-rubber stamping, playing with the blender solution, airbrushing and so on with the store's markers. Like the Level I Workshop, you will not make cards, but will hone your colouring skills with some images to take home and use on cards later! All Supplies Included.

From Sketch to Scrapped  NEW!
Instructor: Colleen Heidrich
Class Fee: 15.00   Supply Fee: $5.00
In this class, we're going to take a sketch (this month from Debbie Gaydos at www.scrappydeb.blogspot.com) and complete a double page layout in class.  The first thing we'll do is choose papers that'll compliment your pictures and I'll be there to help you do that.  Then we'll talk about the design, how you might want to change it to make it your own and how to simply get that 2-pager done!  You're encouraged to bring pictures to help you pick your papers and so that you can go home with something finished.  Remember that the sizes in the sketch can be worked with or your pictures can be cropped.   Basic supplies for the layout will be included and then you can purchase any extras that night that you might want to add to your layout as well.  I'll help with this too!

There are so many ways to use the multiliner pens, and I know you will love them by the end of the class, that's why you get one FREE when you sign up for the class! Feel free to bring your own Copic markers to the class - it means less sharing/waiting - but it is not necessary. Having Copic marker experience is recommended, however.  All Supplies Included.

I will be at your disposal to help you put a layout together over the span of 2 hours, as well as help you with any questions or curiosities you might have along the way. Included in the Class fee is the paper you will require for the layout (1 piece of designer paper, and two 12x12 solid cardstock), and all supplies (glue, trimmers, scissors etc), and of course ME, who will be your personal shopper and coach every step of the way! Don't know how to use ribbon? Stickers? Chipboard? Die Cuts? We will incorporate those mysteries into your layout.
