Cary Table Scrapbookers SVG class

February 8, 2011

I went to a class at Jen’s for a SCAL class.  (Sure Cuts A Lot).   It is a program for cutting out almost anything on the cricut without the use of cartridges.   With any cricut cartridge in, you can cut from your computer.   The item you cut is not on that cartridge, but from a SVG file.  The class was great.   She broke it down into small cohesive segments and the pulled it all together in a short, simple activity.  I have taken 2 – 3 other classes and left thinking I knew what to do.   When I got home, I was clueless!   NOT this class.   The next day, I was cutting things out!   The following weekend, I bought a SVG file and BAM…… cut it out, and put it together.   GREAT class Jen!   This svg file came from:  The templates, svg files, and directions are great.   Very easy to follow and cut out perfect! 

Here is my first put together item.  

Creating Space with Copics Class

February 8, 2011

This is another copic class I’m taking.  

This class is on Crafters Digital Art Center.  The link for the site is:   www.priscillastyles.ning.comCopic   

The girl teaching the class is  Jayleen from

This week she is teaching about atmospheric looks of a picture or levels of a picture.  It is a artistic way of looking at what you are coloring.   It is not so much about the copic markers as it is the look of the over all view of the picture.   I really like it so far.   It has made me look at the whole process differently.   Again, this class is different from other copic classes I have taken and I really like the different approach.  Learn…. Learn…. Learn…. 

 First attempt.   Don’t look so much at my coloring inside the line skills.   *laugh*.   Look more so at the over all attempt of the background, what is closer, what is closer than that…. and what is the closest and the coloring of those levels of depth of the picture items. Hopefully, that makes a little sense.   Her video was great at explaining it.   So, for more information, look her classes up from her blog.  Here is our first assignment:

Archivers Card Class

February 8, 2011

This was one of the BEST Archivers classes  I’ve been to and the instructor was absolutely AWESOME!   The class products was by Hero Arts and the title of the class was “Painted Petals”.   Did I say awesome?   The cards are beautiful.   They look very complicated, but broken down by the instructor, Lisa was very simple.   Here are the cards:

If you would like more information on how we did them, leave me a comment with your email and I’ll shoot you an email with directions.   Lots of heat embossing and water colors done with Distress Inks.

Snowman in January

January 29, 2011

It has been a cold…brrrr… winter so far.   Today has been a major change.  I’d guess it is high 50’s today.  Those of you that know me, know I LOVE the cold weather, so today is way too warm.  So, to cool things down here, I colored a snowman!  Remember, I’m learning!
