Ranger new release products:

I want to start with my sincere apologies to all of you who pre-orderd ranger products and are STILL waiting.  I am equally frustrated (and ready to go buy some for myself somewhere else too!)  I spoke with several people at Ranger again on uesday and all they could tell me is they are sorry and have no idea how my order was missed but they are still out of stock of alcohol inks and ideology stuff.  So not a big help there.  They did get an earful about looking into a better system.  i was promised my order would be the first one out the door when they do have it which will hopefully be this week BUT they have been telling me that for awhile now……..i will post as soon as i get it in stock and ship out ASAP.  Again i am DEEPLY sorry and ever so grateful for all of my wonderful customers who have stuck by me and waited so patiently – i am truly blessed!

Classes are coming to Pez-A-Doodles!

Thats right, after many requests from customers in my area and the huge interest in the alcohol ink get together and requests for more by folks who could not make it I have decided to begin holding classes in the western outskirts of the Northern VA area (Loudoun County).  Our area seriously lacks anything nearby.  I will post descriptions here on the blog under the classes tab and on my website as well.  Our first class is May 2 – Fun with Perfect Pearls 1 – we will be doing a variety of techniques using Perfect Pearls to really give your cards a kick of shimmer.  And yes the 1 does imply there will be a 2 – perfect pearls are SO versatile it really requires several classes to cover it all!  May 30 we will have a class exploring some techniques using embossing powder as a resist with a variety of Ranger/Tim Holtz products.  June 13 we will explore Tim Holtz Fragments and the many ways to use them.  Classes will be Saturday evenings and run from 7pm until 10pm.  You will leave with several finished projects.  IF YOU HAVE IDEAS for other classes you would like to see offered please let me know!  Future classes in the works – mini acrylic cupcake album, More Fun with Alcohol Inks, Fun with dimensional pearls, Faux watercoloring, Heat Embossing Tricks, Fun with Grungeboard, Crackle Paint Altered picture frame, Altered Treasure Box.

In addition my very good buddy Suzanne Dean will be teaching Copic Classes in this area.  Hop over to her blog for all the details.

I decided to cover half the page with paper on this one and i really like it!  TIP: when doing this don’t trace and try and cut your paper to fit, just attach your paper and then use a nail file or other sanding block and sand along the edges – perfect match, very little time and effort.

  1. Hey M! Really sorry to hear about all the shenanigans with Ranger! Boooo…it really sucks and I know it’s not your fault – people are just so anxious to get the goods that they forget that sometimes! *HUUUUGS* Hang in there and hope that Ranger gets their act together and sends nice big boxes to your front door soon! You should tell them to throw in a lot of somethin’ somethin’s for all the trouble they’ve caused! LOL….

  2. P.S. I am LOVING those new headline banners you’ve got goin’ on!!! *HIGH FIVE* They look awesome!

  3. Don’t you hate it when companies drop the ball like that? That’s why it’s so great to find a store like yours with such great service!

    Way to rock the acrylic album!

    Have a safe trip home!
