Oh Joy and Paint.Plan.Play at Studio Calico

Two new Studio Calico classes were announced last night and I'm super excited about both of them. I had a pretty good feeling that one was going to be announced but this class was a total surprise and its such a great idea and the perfect timing too.


The Yuletide season is upon us and that means it’s time to send hand-crafted greeting cards and tags for those you hold nearest and dearest. In Send Joy Lisa Spangler will show you how to create 15 cards and 5 tags in bulk so that you can send them to 100 of your closest friends. Provide your entire Christmas list with handmade cards made with care. Send Joy is enrolling now through October 31st at 11:59pm EST and all class content will be posted on November 1st.

  • 5 videos - 4 from Lisa Spangler and 1 from Jennifer McGuire - sharing tips and tricks for well designed cards that you can make for everyone on your list.
  • PDF lessons sharing ideas for 10 stamped cards, 5 letterpress cards and 5 tags from Lisa and her contributors.

There are also some SUPER cute new stamps, dies and letterpress plates to accompany this class and here are some of my favorites

The second class that was announced was the one I had a pretty good feeling about based on what I had seen on Ashley's Instagram posts.



We've all experienced it – the frustration of sitting in front of a blank page for hours and still coming up empty. Well, we've got the remedy: cutting-edge artist Ashley Goldberg. Ashley’s come wielding her brush and paints to invite you into Paint.Plan.Play, an “art” class designed for scrapbookers. Grab the paints and brushes you've been collecting and let Ashley help you tap into the creativity you've got hiding inside yourself.

During the first half of Paint.Plan.Play, you’ll explore core painting techniques Ashley uses every day, then you will transition into putting those new skills to use in several projects. With Ashley’s expert guidance, you will learn how to take control of color, pattern, and text by using paint, collage, and various other mediums to add allure to all your paper crafting projects – from personally designed journal layouts to Project Life spreads. Paint.Plan.Play will begin on November 1st.

BY ENROLLING IN THIS CLASS YOU'LL RECEIVE :

  • 4 technique videos from Ashley sharing tips and tricks for painted backgrounds, mark making, stamping and working with patterned paper.
  • a PDF from Ashley sharing how she uses her painted pages to create an Art Planner.
  • Inspiration PDFs from our expert contributors sharing 10 ideas for using these paint techniques on art journal pages, layouts and Project Life® spreads.
  • Access to a class message board and gallery, where you can share and learn with your teacher and fellow students.
  • Weekly challenges to inspire you to use what you've learned.

There are also some really great exclusives and offers for this class if you sign up quickly, you can all the details and sign up for the class right here.
