It is that time of year! December 1st is 10 sleeps away and as always Nadine will be teaching her take on the December Daily mini book. This concept was coined and created by Ali Edwards (we're big fans) and it has taken the memory keeping world by storm (not Buffalo storm but it is kind of a big deal). The idea behind this is to create a book that can be used to document the days leading up to December 25, or boxing day or until the New Year. Nadine's book contains 25 pages, one for each day until Christmas and it is packed full of product from Simple Stories' Cozy ChristmasCollection. The book has flip out pages, pockets, tags, accordian pages, tabs, pulls, plastic sleeves and so much more. Each kit contains 2 @ 12x12 sticker sheets for embellishing along with ribbon, bows, wooden tags, doilies, die cuts, quotes and glitter. Did we forget something... probably.
Don't want to document all the days leading up to Christmas but want a really beautiful Christmas book? Awesome- this class is for you too! Can't come to class? Nadine will have class kits for you to take home as well!
This class / kits have sold out quickly in all past years: please call the store at 780-414-1540 to reserve your spot or your class kit.

This can be paper, title or journaling cards, stamps, stickers, embellishments. All product will be collected and then set out.
Start off 2015 with a fun and creative Art Calendar! These monthly calendar pages are fun to make and even more fun to use. Use them to record your creative goals and accomplishments, personal appointments, thoughts of the day, or whatever inspires you.
We’ll meet every couple of months to do another two months, all based on monthly themes and using a great variety of techniques, processes and products. It’s a great way to hang out with other artists and make something you can look back on for years to come.
Check out all 12 monthly pages for 2014 – they are on display at the store.
This is for art journal-ers, layout specialists, card makers, multi media gurus of all skill levels!
You will receive 12 x 12 heavy duty cardstock for your background, so your pages can be kept in page protectors once your month is completed. Or, you can bring your own journals or books to work in. I would suggest a book with pages that open flat. Any size will do, but keep in mind the space needed for all the days of the month.
January – ‘Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake’! These pages will be in pink and white, with visual texture added using paints, gelatos, & gesso). Cupcakes will be the featured embellishment, so bring your own punches, stamps or dies you would prefer to use. Cupcakes will be the light snack for the day!
February – This calendar page will have a theme of Owls. A paper pieced owl will sit in a collaged tree, keeping an eye out for anything fun in February.
Please bring basic art supplies, including:
Scissors, paper trimmer, various ink pads, ink applicators, black archival ink, favorite background or image stamps, adhesives (wet glue, tape runners), paint brushes, water container, paper towels.
We will create this, free standing, 5"x 8" x 1/2" Kaiser Craft Pear, collaged on one side with Kaiser's Teddy Bear's Picnic paper and custom made 3-D "teddy pear" word labels. On the other side we will use a vintage map of Europe with a "Pearis" word label. We will be using score tape to attach the paper, steel wool to sand the edges and Distress stain and finger daubers to finish the look by inking the edges. All materials will be supplied, you will need to bring a sharp x-acto style knife with fresh blade to class.
