New Zentangle classes!!!

SGD is thrilled to welcome Lorraine Thomson, a Certified Zentangle® Teacher. Lorraine has learned the process during an intensive course in Providence, Rhode Island, taught by the founders of Zentangle ®, Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and Maria’s daughter Molly Hollibaugh.

Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing way to create beautiful non-representational, interesting images by drawing structured patterns one stroke at a time. It was developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas in 2003 as a way for anyone to access their creativity and as a type of visual meditation and practice. They believe “life is an art form and the Zentangle® Method is an elegant metaphor for a deliberate artistry of life.” You don’t even need to know how to draw to do it! Anyone can do a Zentangle® as it is taught one step at a time. Some will obviously have more of a flourish with it but children, seniors, artists and non-artists alike can do it.

Get into the Zen with Lorraine and one of the fastest growing art-forms, Zentangle! This is a beginner-level course. Course fee includes Zentangle mini-kit and all other materials needed. You may wish to bring along a notebook for taking notes. Each student will receive a 15% in-store discount during Lorraine's course.  Make the day of it and join Lorraine for "The Next Step" workshop in the afternoon

Monday, January 18:  9:30am - 12 noon   Please note:  If you sign up for both morning & afternoon classes, a $5 discount will be offered :)

Take your basic skills to "The Next Step" with Lorraine's afternoon workshop!  Get into the Zen with Lorraine and one of the fastest growing art-forms, Zentangle! Please note that this is an intermediate-level course and basic Zentangle skills are a pre-requisite for taking this course.  If you are brand new to Zentangle, please attend Lorraine's 101 Workshop in the morning prior to taking this course.  Course fee includes all materials needed. You may wish to bring along a notebook for taking notes. Each student will receive a 15% in-store discount during Lorraine's course.  


Monday, January 18:  1 - 3:30pm   Please note:  If you sign up for both morning & afternoon classes, a $5 discount will be offered :)

"Happy New Year" Kit

Hello, everyone! I wanted to show you the latest kit that I have created called "Happy New Year". I wanted to include both gold and silver in the kit and couldn't find exactly the paper that I wanted so I created my own with the help of Bella Blvd's "Just Add Color" Collection. I had looked at this paper several times and wasn't sure how to use it and then inspiration hit. I first covered a few of the stars with the Quickie Glue Pen and then added Silver Glitter to each of those stars. Then I covered some of the stars with the glue and added some Glitter Ritz Rose Gold. I used Crystal Lacquer on the remaining stars. To add some more colour, I used the POW Silver Glitter paper and a Tim Holtz Star Die. I also used the Tim Holtz film strip, some silver sequins and silver enamel dots. I also added the Clear Stickers (clocks and keys).

So as I have said before, you can create your own colour scheme for a layout if you don't have the necessary papers. You just have to have a little imagination.

Here are the products that I used and the layout:

Red berries


Happy Friday! Do you still need some Christmas cards? With the berry bevy stamp from Penny Black you can make some really quick, mat it with the silver mirri board and on red cardstock for a wow effect.
Here I embossed this stamp with silver embossing powder, I coloured the berries red with a Tim Holtz distress marker (barn door) and then added some Viva red glitter. The sentiment is from this set (love that set too), I cut the birds with the Silhouette but there are lots of options with dies, like this one, or some other bird you might already own.
                                                     Till next time, Anja

Hello, everyone! Well, we finished our last Calendar Class yesterday and the ladies now have 12 double page layouts completed for the year 2015. Now all they need is to print their photos and attach them to the layouts!! Today, I wanted to share with you the layout that I have created to start the new year. Remember that if you take every class, by the end of the year 2016, you will also have 12 layouts to represent the year.

January 2016 Layout

I used the Simple Stories Collection Snow Patrol along with some Maya Road Snowflakes and some Enamel Dots from the Carta Bella Christmas in Wonderland Collection.

This first layout will be done in a Kit format and then classes will start in February. Call the store to reserve your kit and to sign up for the next class in February.

Hidden lane masculine card


Happy Friday! Today a masculine card with a Penny Black stamp, it's called Hidden Lane. This is one big stamp, the sentiment is from my stash.
I coloured the stamp with Tim Holtz's distress markers, peeled paint, gathered twigs, brushed corduroy, pumice stone. The sky is done with a sponge and some tumbled glass.
After I put the colour on the stamp, I spritzed it with water and stamped on a piece of bristol smooth mixed media paper.This card does not take long at all! With the score pal I carefully scored the frame around it. Hope you like it, till next time, Anja

December Calendar Layout

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to show you the upcoming class that we will be doing for the December Calendar Class. The ladies who have taken this class all year will now have an album filled with 12 double page layouts representing each month of the year. Now if they will only get their photos in to the album, I will be happy. This is my sixth year of doing Calendar classes and I hope to keep going with the classes in the New Year.

For this layout, I used the Simple Stories Collection Claus & Co. We will be doing some fussy cutting and using some Tim Holtz thinlits for the title. Finally we will add some Tim Holtz Holiday Cards, twine and sequins to complete the layout. Hope to see you next Sunday at the class.
