New Project Life Card Class & Fall Open House!

Hi, it's Susan Liles!
I've been wanting to make another set of Project Life type cards for a while.  So I came up with a fun color scheme with some vibrant and yummy pops of color, some of my favorite 
REVERSE CONFETTI stamps and Confetti Cuts Dies and off I went!

I made a set of six at first, but couldn't stop, so I made 2 more.  That's good because the pocket pages I used for them hold 8 of the vertical style for this size.   I loved the card set so much, that I am turning into a workshop up at THE LITTLE BLUE HOUSE  
We'll be making these exact cards, yes all 8! 
Two page protectors are included in the class, and we will complete both of them, front a back for a total of four pages.  There may even be a little 
BONUS project we will include in the class, but that will be my little secret. 
 I'd love for it to become a series of classes with "themed" PL cards--Halloween, Christmas, Birthday, etc.  What do y'all think?  Here's the details for my class--
call or stop by to reserve your spot, it's going to be a ton of FUN! 

'Fetti Fans Project Life Card Workshop
Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Little Blue Product Review

Hello LBH Friends!
Thank you for join us today on the LBH Blog!
It's time for a Little Blue Product Review on a few new products from Imagine Crafts: Creative Mediums & Studio Glaze
Let's start with Creative Mediums- Metallic & Iridescent

Creative Medium Metallic and Iridescent are creamy pastes that can be stenciled, spread or dabbed on for gorgeous texture and color.Creative Medium can be stamped with pigment or solvent inks once dried.  Creative Medium readily accepts glitter, inks and other additives when still wet. Use on canvas, metal, wood, plastic, glass, cardstock, tile, acetate and shrink plastic.  Easy clean-up. Water-based; archival and acid free. I really like the smooth and silky finish this medium has.
Creative Medium Iridescent is available in 6 different colors, revealing beautiful and bold colors on dark backgrounds. Because Creative Medium is blendable, experiment using multiple colors for unique color effects and finishes.
There are four colors of Creative Medium Metallic to choose from for your next project. Use a Pallet Knife to spread Creative Medium evenly and smoothly through your favorite stencils on any sized project.

Here is a video that shares a little bit about this great product
from Imagine Crafts!

Next let's talk about Staz-On Studio Glaze!

StazOn Studio Glaze creates a stained glass effect on transparent glass. Works on glass, acrylic, metal, paper, wood and other non-porous surfaces. Apply directly from the bottle or use with a variety of tools such as Doodlestix plus you can try it with your favorite stencils!

This Glass Vase is a beautiful piece created with StazOn Studio Glaze!!

StazOn Studio Glaze can be used to embellish paper projects, producing a dimensional effect. Metallic Gold and Silver, along with Cotton White colors will produce an opaque effect with the other twelve colors revealing a beautiful translucent effect on your project.
