VERY pleased to share this awesome deal with you! If you sign up this month at SGD, you can get 50% off any class of your choice in the month of October! What a great way to get back into the winter crafting season again! I'll be teaching two classes in October - Copic 101 on Oct. 12 and Intermediate Copics on Oct. 27.
I wanted to share with you the cards we'll be making at my October 27 Copic cardmaking class. These are the FIRST fall/ winter cards I've made this year. Phew, what a shock to the system! After such a beautiful summer, it was hard to say goodbye to my peach-coloured toes and my summer themed stamps!
These stamps are both from My Favourite Things Pure Innocence Line. I think they're cute as a button! They're very versatile images and come with several sentiments. AND, best of all, they are IDEAL for Copic colouring!
When starting with Copics, you want to choose images that aren't too "intricate" and have lots of nice open spaces so that you can get some nice blending and have room to work. Personally, I really like colouring little people as opposed to animals and scenes. So these stamps are some of my faves!
I also love High Hopes stamps - and I'm thrilled to be a guest designer for them this fall! We are just getting ready for the September release THIS WEEK! So be sure to check out my blog as well as the High Hopes blog to get a glimpse of the GORGEOUS new images which are happily on my craft table right now!

I would LOVE to hear from you about any suggestions for future classes! I'm thinking of running some special Copic technique classes including monochromatic, black & white, "look no lines", etc. Let me know what you'd like to see from us!
