November 2nd Saturday

November 13th is coming fast so be sure to mark it on your calendars for 2nd Saturday in the Rexburg store. It is so fun when you start to feel the Christmas spirit in the air. We will be focusing on a December layout for you calendar shadow box. The element we wish to emphasize is the use of "Quickutz" dies. On this layout the die we used is the "Merry Christmas" set.

Class will start at 8:30 a.m. We look forward to seeing there.

2nd Saturday Recap

October's 2nd Saturday featured "Core Dination" embossing paper. We taught how you can buy pre-embossed paper that only needs sanding to showcase the embossing, or how you can emboss your own choice of colored cardstock with a number of different tools. Some of those tools are embossing punches, embossing folders for the Revolution or Cuttle Bug Die Cut Machines, embossing rollers, or even metal embossing templates using a light box.

Some other ways to expose the core color of the card stock is to tear or use a distressing blade. This paper adds texture and dimension and helps to complete a layout.

October Album of the Month

This Halloween mini album, designed by Maureen Wilson, has a trick that’s a real treat! The special folding technique displays several pages, and then “magically” takes you right back to page one– it’s a never-ending album!

If you think this looks complicated, don't worry! Maureen has created a wonderful how-to video so you can see exactly what to do. Click here to watch!

You can pick up a kit in our Rexburg store.

2nd Saturday

Mark October 9th on your calendar! This is the date for our next 2nd Saturday at the Rexburg store. I am excited to showcase Core'dinations Cardstock and share some of the fun things you can do with it.

Besides their "Essentials" collection (which you can tear, sand and emboss), Core'dinations also features a printed, pre-embossed line that is a lot of fun to work with. Here are just a couple of examples of what can be done with this line.

So we will see you Saturday morning at 8:30 am! Be prepared to share your completed pages from last month to help spark all our creative juices.
