"Falling for You" Scrapbook Class

Just got back from Scottsdale, AZ CTMH Album Retreat and feeling so inspired. The first layout is directly from CTMH art team, just changed up the paper and added a few extra photo wells. I love it and hope you will as well. What I really love about this layout is that you can quarter turn either side and it becomes a whole new layout, you could do a whole album by just spinning the pages in this one layout.
See how creative you can be using CTMH lay-out books, beautiful patterns inspired by Jeanette Lynton. Designed & taught by Kimberly Thomas. Mail Order Option also available.
Class includes direction and cutting diagrams to complete Three 12x12 - two page lay-outs, featuring "Falling for You" Paper Packet. You will go home with 6 completed pages (this includes all papers, adhesive back glitter shapes, button, brads, page protectors and bakers twine), ready for photos. 
Kim will be teaching you how to work from lay-out books and the art of creative cropping with your photos. additional techniques taught will include scissor edge & direct ink edge distressing and fussy cutting.

You are required to bring sturdy adhesive, 12" personal paper trimmer & scissors to all classes. MUST RSVP

Copic Sketch Vs. ShinHan Twin Touch

The Twin Touch markers are Copic Sketch marker's closest competition with refillable ink, vibrant colors, and replaceable nibs, particularly as Twin Touch markers are cheaper than Copics and perform with similar results. Twin Touch markers have a dryer brush tip application, which is perfect for adult coloring (less bleeding). However if you utilize saturation in your markering technique, you would have a difficult time doing so with the Twin Touch markers.  Both of these alcohol based marker brands are an excellent choice for illustrators, although I would say that the Twin Touch is probably comparable to the Copic Ciao marker in price and features.

If you're looking for a cheaper Copic substitute for scrapbooking and stamping, the ShinHan Twin Touch is just the marker to suit your needs.
