The class is sold out, but I'll be there all day to answer questions, show all the beautiful samples, demo, etc.
For my sample card I added photos of our very talented Design Team and then labeled their photos with a Dymo manual labelmaker.
Next, we'll make a card using the newly re-released Barn Pop Stand and embellished with the Chicken, Pig and Lamb, Cow and Goat, Tiny Accessories 3, Farm Edges, Crosshatch Squares, Border Blends- Party and Howdy die sets.
The Barn is a fun die because it has very easy assembly, plus a double reveal - after opening the card and watching the barn pop up, you can also slide the doors open to reveal a hidden surprise. For our card it will be a cute lamb peeking out.
To my students - the e-mail went out yesterday with the What to Bring list but here it is again. I also e-mailed you the latest catalog in PDF form in case you want to print that for reference.
- All types of adhesive including: glue capable of making a fine line (crucial for the animals), tape runner, strong double-sided tape like tacky tape or scor tape in any width, pop dots and glue dots.
- Black pen - you’ll need this for nostrils, hooves and tractor wheels
- Gray marker - optional, but looks nice on inside of camera lens - I used a Comic C5, but any medium gray marker would work
- Paper piercer and something to pierce into, like a small piece of foam.
- Quickstik or tweezers - very helpful when assembling animals
- Pen or pencil
- Wink of Stella or similar glitter pen to add sparkle to the heart (optional)
- 9 small square photos sized to 1.25” square if you want no inside black border, or 1 1/8” square for a border.
- To print photos at home, pull them into Word or a photo editing program like Photoshop, crop them into a square, size them to 1.25” (or 1.125” square) and print.
- If you want an easy way to get 9 photos sized perfectly for your card, use Walgreens online photo app with their 4x4 Collage Print for $0.49. Here’s a YouTube video that shows exactly how to do it. https://youtu.be/KHw-w7FanbA
- Print the photos of the cards shown below or save them to your phone or tablet to refer to in class.
OPTIONAL - watch these assembly videos for the two pop-up dies to familiarize yourself with the process.
