Join Susan on her journey through Julia Andrus' techniques as found in her book Paper Transformed! This is a series class but you don't need to attend all classes to participate. Her January class will focus on chapter one. You will learn exciting techniques to make beautiful marbled and watercolored papers as well as learn how to create paste paper. Wear old clothes and roll up your sleeves as you explore some great new techniques!

Please bring a tray or box lid with you in case you have projects that might still need drying time. Also, if you need to protect your manicure, don't forget a pair of rubber or plastic gloves.  Call and sign up today!

Altered Child's Rocking Chair

Since it is a very snowy Tuesday here in NKY, the shop isn't open and I thought it would be a great time to share some pictures of a rocking chair that I has a ball altering.  It's in the shop, so a lot of you have seen it.  However, for those of you who haven't, enjoy the pics!  Stay warm!!

Check out these adorable cards that Susan has created for you.  Class is January 26th at 6:30 and the cost is $20.00.  Let me hear from you asap!


Happy New Year!  What an amazing 2010 it was and I know already it will be an even more awesome 2011!  Life is good.  Children are healthy, safe, and happy.  Husband is awesome, as always.  Friends are abundant and faithful!!!  I am forever grateful for the people in my life and want you to know how special you are to me.  Stop by the shop and see alll the stamps that have come in.  Christmas is packed away and Valentine and St. Patrick's Day are out on the shelves.  As well as dozens and dozens of SU sets!  OMgoodness!!!!  Prices are amazing.  For instance, I bought the set "Stampin Stella" on ebay 5 years ago for between 40-50 dollars.  She's in the shop for under $20.00!  That's just one example.  If you're looking for a particular stamp, e-mail me and I'll send out a mass email to all that are on my list.  Perhaps someone has it and is willing to part with it.  Nothing ventured nothing gained.  See you in the shop, Ramona.

Paper Transformed

Susan is starting a series of classes based on the book Paper Transformed.  This class will give you the opportunity to try new and differeeent things that you might never try or even think of.  It basically is exactly what the title describes, transforming paper with inks, paints, mediums, etc.  This class will be offered the third Wednesday night each month until the book runs out of ideas, lol.  Call me and sign up for this really cool, fun, messy class.  I can say that because I have this book and have done some of these techniques. 


Me is a 9 year old or older and My is the 9 year old's adult.  Mom, Dad, Grandma, etc.  Cindy Grammel from Fusion Gallery asked me one day if I had any classes she could do with her granddaughter and I said I didn't.  After I thought about it awhile, I thought this would be a great idea!  So, January 29th is the first Me & My class.  It is at 2:00 and will cost $10.00 per person.  In January we will be making cards, February 26th we will do a mini scrapbook, and March 19th we will alter a picture frame.  There has been quite a bit of interest in this class and space is limited.  Be sure and call me as soon as possible to sign up.  If there is a need, I will offer this class more than once a month. 


I taught this class a couple of years ago and it was an amazing success!!!  Over 50 people ended up taking this class. It is a series of 26 techniques.  The classes run through July.  We will learn four techniques a month and at the end of the series you will have a 6x6 book showing all the techniques as well as written instructions for each one.  Make up classes will be offered.  The cost of each class is $15.00.  For those of you who may be missing a few from the previous classes, this is your chance to finish your book. 

In January we will be doing A - alcohol ink; G - ghosting; R - reflection; and S - Shaving Cream.  Check your book and see if you have these four.  If you don't have a book, you need one.  So many people have come to me and said that they have been stumped for ideas and then they look in their book and find something they haven't done is awhile and off they go.  Call and sign up soon!


Want to try something different?  Try stamping on dominos!  (Sorry these pictures are a little blury)  Sandi has been published in Cloth, Paper, Scissors with her domino charms.  This is a lot of fun and I can guarantee you, once you do it, you'll be hooked!  Sandi has graciously offered to teach this class on a Tuesday evening as well as a Saturday afternoon.  Get in touch with me and save yourself a spot right away!


The monthly layouts that we're offering starting this month are absolutely adorable!  In this class you will make two - two page layouts for a total of four pages for only $20.00.  Space is filling up fast, so call soon!


These are the cutest cards!  They are so much fun to open.  Join Susan as this class will be offered only once, on January 12th at 6:30.  Call today!


 I have seen these bears several times, but to tell you the truth, never as soft looking as these bears.  Cathy will show you a whole new way of making these bears with NO water! NO drying time!  These will be perfect for cards, scrapbook layouts, anything you want to embellish!  Class is 6:30, Thursday the 6th and again on Saturday the 8th at 10:00.  Sign up now!


This class is being offered again January 5th at 6:30.  Several of you have requested that we offer it again and here is your chance.  This picture is just the outside of the card.  To see more of it, please look back at previous posts.  Call me to sign up!
