We will be offering classes starting in December that will feature this product.
The HoneyPop is great for fun dimension, but allows you to mail the card without the bulk.
You could also add the Honeycomb product to a scrapbook page for fun
pop-up dimension.
Please note that we will not be teaching how to color images, but this class will focus on how to put together the HoneyPop card.

Reserve your space today for this New Class.

            Would you like to make your own 
resin/polymer flowers?

You will learn to make your own molds and then
have the opportunity to make
polymer flowers from that mold.

If you are a scrappbooker or card maker,
these fun dimensional shapes add the extra
pazazz to any project.

Mold Example
This is the type of mold we will make and you will also have access to additional molds from my personal collection and some that the stores has. 

polymer flower examples
We will make flowers that look like these examples.  You will have a choice of what type of mold you want to make, plus be provided your own clay to make flowers during the class.  You will take the flowers home to bake and put a clear coat of sealer on them.  These are so easy to make and  make great gifts for all your crafting friend and family.

Copic Markers

These are four rubber stamp images I've colored with Copic Markers.  I took a series of 8 (I think) classes last year at All About Pictures.  I need more experience and skill with shading.  I love these markers!  They use alcohol inks and re-fillable.  The beginner series is being taught again at the store, and there's a second series now offered to those who have taken the first series of classes.  I get into an almost ZEN feeling when coloring - very relaxing and very rewarding.  Check it out.

November Clean and Simple (CAS) Card Class

Here's another opportunity to get some Christmas cards done!  You'll make 4 cards in class, but these are designed to pack a WOW punch with very little time and effort-clean and simple, but beautiful and elegant at the same time.  This would make an easy gift pack for someone special, too!  Change the sentiment, and the ribbon, and it could be a wedding card, sympathy card, or congratulations!  At any rate, here's the supplies to bring to class besides your basic crafting kit:
Adirondack Raisin dye ink ( or other burgundy dye ink)
Sentiment stamp/stamp block
Damask embossing folder (Sizzix)
Die cut machine
Mini glue dots
Foam pop dots

Class is scheduled for Friday November 18th from 10am to noon.  If you have any questions or need to reserve your stamping spot, please call All About Pictures at 364-4141.  Happy stamping!  ~Kim~
