Class Schedule

MARCH 2015

Ah, now.... we just had a wonderful demo day and Lisa introduced us to a fine collection of classes for March.  Kelley Walker is teaching another one of her wonderful projects and we have a weekend workshop by Nat Kalbach of n*studio. Take a look.  I'll bet there are one or two that will catch your eye.  Then, of course, you call, email or come by to enroll.  You'll be glad you did.

Thurs, March 5th - 6 pm to 8:30 pm
Fri, March 6th - 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

Ah, now, who doesn't like those little "house" mouses and bunnies?  Oh, you know - you do!  These darling stamps from Stampendous will delight the littlest member of your family cuz you made them with love!  And they are easier than they look - just a little colored pencil, a few layers of paper and you are good to go!

Sat, Mar 7 - 10 am to 6 pm

This class combines two of Kelley's art loves: mono-printing and book binding.  This class was taught in January and is being repeated by demand!  High demand, I tell you!  You will spend the morning "Gelli" printing.  Then after a good break for lunch you will begin creating your portfolio.  It will be filled with pockets and ephemera.  So much fun to create - so much fun to fill!  Grab this opportunity while you can.

Thurs, March 12th - 6 to 9 pm
Fri, March 13 - 10:30 am to 1:30 pm

Tote bag by Prima - artwork by YOU!  Let Lisa show you how to create a stunning work of art on a wonderful canvas tote bag.  Lisa supplies the stamps, stencils, papers and more - you supply the tote (available at your favorite art store - My Heart's Fancy).  You will not believe how easy it is to create this masterpiece.

Thurs, March 19th - 6 - 8:30 pm
Fri, March 20 - 10:30 am to 1 pm

When Lisa says "quick and easy" that's just what she means.  Create these beauties in less time than you thought possible.  Use them for Easter or any spring occasion.  

Sat, March 21st - 10 am to 4 pm
Come and Go

If you haven't been to one of our FREE Demo Days, you have missed a lot of fun...  We always have a free Make-It-Take-It (the one above is the most recent one) and the class samples are revealed for the next month's classes.  We always have new supplies for you to browse and sometime we even have a small sale going on.  Be sure to put this day on your calendar and bring your friends!  It's more fun than a barrel of monkeys!

Sunday, March 22nd - 2 pm to 4 pm

Back by request, this apron is so easy to make.  Sorta like the Tote Bag Extraordinaire, Lisa will provide paint, stencils, stamps and more along with the expertise to help you create a one of a kind apron.  Apron incuded....

Thurs, March 26 - 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

Very cool, very vintage....  altered clock frame by Prima - collage by You.  Let Lisa guide you through the creating of this very interesting altered frame using chipboard, stamps, paints, metal and embellishments.  You will need to purchase the clock (available at My Heart's Fancy).  A fun studio decoration or a great gift for one of your very vintage friends.

I am excited to bring you another guest artist - Nathalie Kalbach of n*Studio.  Nat is bringing us 3 fabulous mixed media workshops.  You can find the details here (Nat Kalbach Workshops blog post). You will want to take advantage of one or all of these!

Remember, you are required to bring your class kit to every class.  If you are new and don't have one, let us know and we will help you put one together.  

Class fees are due at the time of enrollment. You may pay by cash or check in the store or via Paypal if unable to pay in person.   Unpaid enrollments are bumped when classes are full, so don't lose your seat by forgetting to "pony up".

New Workshop - guest artist Nat Kalbach



MARCH 27, 28 & 29TH
A year or so ago I was studying the new Stampendous rubber stamp catalog and saw 3 new lucious "texture" stamp sets.  I had to order them right away as they were(are!) intriguing.  They were created from designs by Nathalie Kalbach (who is known simply as Nat) of N*Studio.  If you are unfamiliar with Nat, visit her blog/website N*Studio.  In addition to being an amazing mixed-media artist, she is a Liquitex Ambassador, organizer of Creative Jump Start, stencil designer for Stencil Girl, & stamp designer for Stampendous.

And sooooo.....  she is going to teach these 3 amazing mixed media classes...  check it out!

Friday, MARCH 27
 4 PM to 8 PM

In this monoprinting class you will explore the possibilities of making your own personal mark in your artwork by creating wonderful prints with different tools, stamps, stencils & techniques.  

Learn how to create your own patterned paper which can later be used in art journals, collages, mixed media canvases and all other kinds of paper art.  You will need a Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate (available at My Heart's Fancy if you need one).  Whether you are a new or seasoned monoprinter, this is a great class for you!

Art Journaling
10 AM to 5:30
(with lunch break)

It starts the moment you sit down - an experience that is distinctly art journaling. A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media's surprising responsiveness as if it were simply an extension of you. 

 There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen!  Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art.  

Join Nathalie for a one-day workshop and play with different art media and supplies.  Learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen!

Mixed Media Collage
10 AM to 5:30 PM
(with lunch break)

In this one-day workshop, Nathalie will share her favorite techniques to create background papers using paints, stencils and stamps.    Layered up, it will turn into a fun Mixed Media Collage.  Create a whimsical or abstract focal point, depending on your taste.  

Nat will share her fun and easy peasy collage techniques, talk a bit about composition and make a sticky business turn into a creative new passion for you.

I am really looking forward to this group of workshops.  Nat brings a whole new style to mixed media and I can't wait to learn a whole new way of creating!

ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN!  Want to take all 3 classes?  You will receive a $15 discount if your class fees are paid in full at the time of enrollment (in store) or within 48 hours of receiving your Paypal invoice.  You may enroll by email (, phone (405-509-6788) or in store.  Class fees are due at the time of enrollment.  Email and phone enrollments will be billed via Paypal (unless other arrangements are made).  In store enrollments may be paid by cash, check or credit card.

That's it for now.....  Until next post.....  Happy Creatin'!
