Thought you might want a peek at the Letterbox Holiday Tray 
that is for this Sunday December 5th.
I am still playing with a few ideas and embellishments but this will give you the just of 
what we will be doing in this class. There is a fair amount of stamping and embossing, 
some resist techniques - some old and some new, a little alcohol ink and...
 the rest you will just need to come to the class to find out. :-)
All the embellishments you see on this tray are included except for the tin. If you want to include it you will need to stop by your local Starbucks and pick one up. There are a few flavours so pick your favourite, the colour of the tin does not matter. All the label will be sanded off. What matters is the size! 
Here is a picture of what the tin looks like before it was altered.
Those interested in taking the class should call Scrapalicious at:905-614-0085
Class starts at 1pm and goes to 4pm but you will have until 5pm to finish and clean up.
If you have questions, email me at:

November Layout of the Month - Laugh Often

This month's layout uses My Mind's Eye papers, a Sizzix edge die, some Quickutz and several stamps.
The first class is on Wednesday November 18th at 11:30AM and the second class will be held next Sunday afternoon at 1PM. Students are asked to bring their Basic tool kits including their ink blending tools.
Please call Scrapalicious at 905-614-0085 to reserve your spots.

Another Large Desk Organizer with BG's Nook and Pantry

 Join me this Sunday November 14th at 1pm to make a Kaisercraft Large Desk Organizer for yourself or as a gift. This one showcases Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry paper collection. You will the the recipe book/album as well.
You will need to bring the following to class:
Exacto knife and cutting mat,
wet and dry adhesive,
sanding tool,
ink blending tool and craft mat
Optional - embellishments you may want to add
 buttons, hardware, etc.

Please come a few minutes early to choose your papers from a large selection.

Paper Challenge!! I know you will want to do this one.

What's in your stash? I think it is challenge time.
I know I have tons of seasonal patterned paper in my stash but I also have a huge collection of Basic Grey. As I sat stamping out a ton of Christmas images last night to use for Christmas cards, I got thinking that I could use just about any one of those papers in a Christmas layout and/or card with the possible exception of Eerie.
(OK, maybe even that one). How about you? Up for a challenge? 
Go pick your papers and show off your sample. Link it back on Facebook or through the comment section here on the blog. Not sure how to accomplish that? Send me a pic of your sample and I will post in for you.
Just to keep this as a real challenge, you need to use patterned papers from any Basic Grey collection. Using a solid blue for example isn't really challenging. You can use a solid as part of the project BUT the patterned paper must be prominent. 
Sound like fun? Let's see what we come up with .
Want to challenge me? Pick a paper collection and challenge me. If I have it, I will attempt to use it.

Large Desk Organizer class this Sunday November 14th

This is definitely my favourite alterable item this season. I made this one to use in my office to put work orders and miscellaneous office items in. I have one in the works for my kitchen. It is a great place to store your new Holiday cooking magazine, recipe book, take-out menus, twist ties, rubber bands and so much more.
Another option... Scrapbook storage! Imagine. LOL
The back section of this handy storage unit will hold your 12x12 papers, adhesives, paints, embellishments, tools, etc. This Large desk organizer will keep all the items you need for the project you are working on close at hand. It is easy to assemble and fun to decorate. Students will have a variety of paper options to choose from and we will also make a book to keep your recipes or other important documents in. There are a few spaces left for this Sunday. Class starts at 1PM but come a bit early so that you can pick your papers.
Please bring your basic tool kit, wet and dry adhesive, ink blending tool and any embellishments you may wish to add. I will bring an assortment of dies and other goodies to share.
Anyone interested should call Scrapalicious at: 905-614-0085
There is a limited amount of spaces available so don't delay - call today.
