What a world wind of a month May was for Fancy That! Firstly we ended up in Sydney at the beginning of the month at SIA ( Scrapbooking Industry Australia) There we had the chance to see all the new stock coming for the next few months and got to play with them in classes and make and takes. We got to meet such inspirational people from all over world in the scrapbooking industry such as Heidi Swapp, Wendy Senger, Melissa Kennedy, Becky Fleck to name a few. These ladies are so talented, and have really inspired us to push our creative minds even further. Now we are going to teach you!
This month at Fancy That our classes will be focused on introducing the use of Glimmermists. These are a must for any scrapbookers collection. You will learn to incorporate this wonderful texture onto your pages to create a different look. You can create your own back grounds and high light your embellishments with this amazing product. We are currently securing these spray mists and shortly they will be in stock in store. But until then we will get started teaching you how to use them. Most of the layouts have some sort of mist on them this month. Please check our blog on how to make Glimmer Mist paper flowers!
