What kind of workshops do we teach at Snazzys? (Part One)

At the end of my last post I promised to blog all the projects I taught in January in Snazzys Studio so you can decide for yourselves what I teach at Snazzys. Now, what could be simpler? Lay each set of workshop projects out on the desk, snap a piccie of each, pop on the blog. So far so good.........not!

We can't find the recharging cable for either of our cameras and no one knows what could have happened to them, certainly not the teens & teen + children who borrowed them :0(

So, here is Part 1 with all the cardmaking projects, piccies taken with a not so great phone camera.

Then, when the new cable from Mr Amazon turns up in a couple of days, I will blog Part 2 with all the non cardmaking projects.

These cards are from the morning workshop on Saturday 12 January, Clean & Simple cards made with papers from the Teresa Collins Tell Your Story collection. Everyone has remnants (or more....) from paper pads which make very economical and easy cards as they are already co-ordinated for you. Speedy & simples!

These are the samples from the Focus on Pan Pastels workshop in the afternoon of Saturday 12 January where we were creating backgrounds with Pan Pastels using stamps, masks, stencils and texture paste. All stamped with some of my favourite Tim Holtz stamps. These projects were also the basis of a Custom Class on Monday 4 February for a group of ladies who couldn't get booked on the original date.
These samples are some of the projects from another custom workshop I taught on Monday 14 January for a group of ladies who wanted a taster using Distress Inks. We also created our own stencils using the Tim Holtz Blueprint Autumn Leaves to give a hand coloured effect in rich autumnal shades of Distress Inks.
On Wenesday 16 January I used Chocolate Baroques wonderful Tangled Garden plate in a Take One Stamp workshop to make some fresh & striking cards cutting our own custom apertures and with a bit of shrink plastic thrown in. Love these stamps!
Now, before I go, a word about custom workshops. If you are a group of four or more, we are happy to put together a custom workshop, at a time to suit you and your friends. It may be you spot a project taught previously, or a whole workshop you missed, or you simply want a workshop with a focus on products or techniques you want to work with. If so, just email or call us, and we can create a custom class just for you, at your venue or ours - and you can use snazzy Workshop Vouches to pay for Custom Workshops too and save 20%!.
Back soon xx
