Sneak Peek of New CHA Releases and Tim Holtz is coming to Dallas!

First of all, for those looking for some sneak peeks of all the new scrapbooking/stamping and cardmaking goodies to be shown next week at the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) convention, check out the following websites:


1) The ScrapReview - if you sign up for their newsletter, all the goodies are automatically sent everyday!
2) Scrapbook Update - Nancy always has great info on the previews as well as up to the minute news for the industry!


And, did my local pals hear the good news??  Tim Holtz is coming to teach classes here in August!  Here's the info from The Stamp Asylum store who is bringing him here to Dallas!


Please take note of the instructions for registering because we will not be taking registrations prior to the date listed.  We are simply trying to be fair.

There will be 75 lucky participants per class.

We will begin taking registrations on Wednesday,
July 21st, at 5:00 p.m.


You can come to the store (Stamp Asylum, northwest corner of Park and Coit, Plano) or call 972 596-1224 to register.



Please have your credit card ready.  We will be charging the classes within two days after registration.  If you need to cancel, your money will be refunded if we have someone on the waiting list for that class.
As you know Tim brings everything you are going to need for class.  Yes, that includes scissors, adhesives, etc.

We do not have samples projects at this time, but we believe the descriptions give you good picture of what you will be learning.

Descriptions:

1) ULTIMATE ALTERATIONSaturday, August 28th 
10:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

      Discover the versatility and eclectic designs of Tim Holtz Alterations line as you can create a journal made from Grungeboard.  This isn’t your ordinary book class though as you design with a style that’s cutting edge… literally..  Learn the possibilities for using On the Edge dies, Texture Fades and Create a dimensional cover for your book using the Bigz dies.  Plus get hands-on techniques working with Distress Inks, Paints, Stickles and even more grunge!  So if you are in need of an ultimate alteration, you have found just the right workshop to do just that …   All supplies included. ($75)


2) CREATIVE BLOCKSaturday, August 28th
3:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.


     
  Sometimes our creative journey can take us in a direction where we find ourselves at a crossroads – a creative block so to speak.  Well this project just might jump start those artful ideas and unlock that inner artist just waiting to emerge.  This multi-layered canvas project will showcase techniques using inks, paints, mediums and beeswax.  Explore a whole new way to work with ephemera and dimensional assemblage as we create this unique masterpiece.  It is time to prove to yourself that creative blocks are a thing of the past because the journey IS the destination. All supplies included. ($85)

3) ARTFUL CURIO
Sunday, August 29th,
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (all day)

 Imagine a place where your creative visions can be displayed for the world to see . .. that place would be the Artful Curio.  This dimensional wooden shadow box with hinged glass door is just perfect to share your creative thoughts and artful treasures.  Learn techniques on collaging, layering, inks, paints, patinas and more as you assemble this one of a kind creation.  You’ll be surrounded with ephemera, trinkets, and found objects to feed your altered desires and includes lunch to keep your creative energy..  The time has come to finally showcase your artful soul in a curio that’s as unique as you.  *(This all day workshop is not like any other and has limited seating available.)  All supplies included.   ($125)

  8. I was just going to write that I wish these sorts of things were available in Canada - but I see Karin above took classes in Montreal (still a bit far for me, but in Canada!). I wish I knew how to find out about these. I've never seen any advertising.
    I hope that YOU have fun though!!
