A quick note about classes-- Please make sure you sign up ahead of time. Last minute is fine but not on the day of class. We need to give the instructors ample time to prepare their kits ( a lot of preperation goes into each and every one).
You may sign up the day before a class--just make sure you call before the store closes for the day. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding of this policy.

*see class photos below!!! gorgeous project!

Glimmer Mist is so popular these days and it is so fun to use! It adds a gorgeous glimmery sheen to any card, layout or project. I love playing around with different colors and trying new techniques as I go. Did you know that you can use a brayer with it? Layer colors? Use it with masks or on grungeboard? The possibilities are endless! Once you try it-you'll be hooked!
We have Glimmer chips and screens in stock to use with them. And a beautiful assortment of colors are in stock now!
Here is an example of a layout using GM on the background. I sprinkled it with flowers and stars, then sprayed an array of colors over it. I removed the shapes after spraying and here's how it turned out! I added gems, flowers and chipboard elements (also sprayed with GM) to decorate my page. I had a blast experimenting with all of the colors!! Even my 7 year old got into it to create backgrounds of his own. It is very safe for anyone to use! I highly recommend anyone to try it!
