For those of you already signed up for the classes and for those of you still on the fence about signing up...these are the descriptions of the upcoming classes SALLY LYNN will be teaching on Saturday, August 15, 2009.

Again, all sign ups for the CERTIFICATION classes are through Sally Lynn's Blog or the COPIC website

Sorry, this weekend of classes DOES NOT include you
in the drawing for the CUTTLEBUG during our CUTTLEBUG FRENZY.

Saturday, August 15, 2009

Learn about Copic markers, the markers that go way beyond coloring stamped images to cardstock, transparencies and more surfaces than you can imagine. Learn about the different styles of markers, how the markers work, without the revealing brushstrokes so often associated with marker coloring. Unlock the secrets to choosing colors for blending and shading. We will practice four blending techniques with a three page handout that is yours to keep for reference and practice; and an airbrushing demonstration will also be included with hands-on use as time allows. Class taught by Sally Lynn MacDonald, National Copic Certification Trainer and Design Team member for Copic / Imagination International.

Copic 102 – Summer Acrylic Album, aka ‘Let No Surface Remain UnInked’

Saturday, August 15th – 1:30-3:30pm

In this technique-packed workshop we will go beyond the basics to explore using Copic inks and the many surfaces and techniques used to color them. From layering colors on transparencies, to airbrushing on acrylic as well as coloring 'bling', felt, epoxy stickers, ribbon, metal and chipboard, Sally Lynn will guide you through every surface to go way above and beyond stamped images to altering everything. We'll also explore complementary products such as Glimmer Mist and Nestabilities dies. There are no mistakes in class, only a new and different way to go about a technique. Come join us for an evening of exploring this wonderful medium and make this fantastic acrylic album with all of the techniques and surfaces we will explore and alter!

What to Bring: 12” Trimmer, Scissors, Wet Adhesive, such as Fabritac or Zip Dry (strongly recommended), Black permanent marker and a Cropadile if you have one.


Angel Face Transparency Techniques Layout

August 15, 2009


Description: This technique-packed layout features many wonderful products from Prima, including Clear Paintables, which we will color with pearlescent paints and Copic Markers and layer with loads of product from the Flirty Little Secret collection. This wonderful bold palette with vibrant pinks, teals, greens and blues offset with touches of white and a romantic black will contrast beautifully with the bold designs of the transparency overlay. Lots of gorgeous flowers and leaves, chipboard, bling and my favorite ribbons and letters complete this feminine layout. An interactive journaling element will be the finishing touch. As always, full sets of alphabets are provided to students to customize your project for your own use.

What to Bring: 12” Trimmer, Scissors, Wet Adhesive, such as Fabritac or Zip Dry & Glue Dots.


CALL or STOP BY the store to sign up

for one or all three of these classes.

In August...

...we will start the CUTTLEBUG FRENZY!!

During the month of August, every class you sign up for and attend, you will be entered in a drawing to win a CUTTLEBUG machine of your very own!! The more classes you pay for and attend, the more chances for you to win. Classes during the month of August will also feature CUTTLEBUG as a tool. Hands on with the CUTTLEBUG and a chance to win one....what more can you ask for?
Eligible classes for the drawing do NOT include ANY of the COPIC classes on August 15 and 16, 2009

**PLUS** the first release of the *NEW* CUTTLEBUG folders will be arriving during the month of AUGUST (that's what PROVO CRAFT promised anyway!) . If you haven't signed up for the first call list, do so now. You will get 10% off on your new CUTTLEBUG folder/die purchase if you are signed up. While you are there, sign up for the second release of the new Holiday folders.....10% off there too! You don't have to pre-pay, just get yourself on the list. Who wouldn't want to be the first to have the new name is on ALL of them.

Oh, and not to forget, for those who have not seen the Holiday release folders...the LACE TREE is coming back...again, for a short time, so get it while you can. Once they stop making them, we won't be able to get them in. They sold out fast last time and we weren't even aware they were making them a limited addition item!

You have been given fair
