Be Thankful . . .

Brand new to the Calendar!  If you love Fall and altering things, then this is the perfect Workshop for you!  Don't wait . . . call today to save your space!


“Thankful Canvas ~
Micro Powders for Beginners”
with Jessica Tucker
Saturday ~ October 15, 2016    10:00am – 2:00pm
Cost:  $40.00


Join Jessica as she shares more exciting tips & tricks in the great "World of Altering!"  In her newest Workshop, you'll learn how to use a new product that's all the rave . . . Mica Powders!  Follow along as Jessica teaches you how to use these magical powders with 4 different techniques on one canvas.  Your completed altered canvas will be a great introduction in learning all about Mica Powders, their properties, and how to use them.  Your canvas will be altered by using the new Tim Holtz "Autumn" stencil for this fall season plus other fun embellishments, and when finished, will be a great fall home decor piece.  Each person will leave the Workshop with a unique canvas as no two persons will create their canvas using the same Mica Power style and color mixing combos.  Everything you'll need to create your canvas will be available in the Workshop, but if you have any special embellishments you'd like to add, please feel free to bring them with you.  Make your reservations early because SEATING IS LIMITED TO 8 students only, and this Workshop is sure to sell out quick!  Call now to save your space so you don't miss out!  As a bonus, two lucky students will have the chance to win their own new Tim Holtz "Autumn" stencil during the Workshop!

  


Supplies to Bring:  Basic Craft Kit (BCK), including craft sheet or mat; heat tool; hot glue gun; scissors; your favorite tool to use for texture paste; and two paint brushes (a thin fine bristle and a normal thick bristle).  All other supplies and materials will be provided.

Not Much Longer . . .

Ready for another Sneek Peek of our new space?  Get comfy and follow along as we share with you what we've been busy working on since we were last together in this new installment of our Guided Tour introducing you to the new home of CraftFusion!

Watch for CraftFusion to open Saturday, October 1st in our new home
in the Dobson Shores Shopping Center
(formerly The Scrubs Store)


We ended our last Tour as we watched Pat painting the walls their new buttery color and prepping around the windows. Let's pick it up from there . . .

While it might look as though we still have a lot of work to do to have everything finished in time for your "real" visit, it really won't be long! Once all the painting is done, then it'll be time to move in all the furnishings and we'll be ready for you. For now, though, follow along as we continue with our Sneek Peek!

All the walls in the main space have now been painted, with just small areas of quick touch up to finish the job, then it's off to give the Mini Classroom it's facelift!




At long last, all the walls are finished! Remember the last time we saw the floors with their coat of white primer?  That's a thing of the past as they now begin to receive their final color of warm chocolate brown.  We started in the new classroom area and think that along with the new color of the walls, the space is beginning to feel real cozy.  We can hardly wait for you to see it in person!

It's been another long day, but the floors are finally done!  At least the first coat, that is. Once this coat has dried, we can begin the second coat and you'll hardly remember those "50 Shades of Grey" it was not too long ago!


We absolutely love the way the new floors are turning out and thought you might like to see them from the classroom space looking towards the front door.  Soon we'll be installing the baseboards, then it'll be time to move in the furniture!  That's when the real fun begins!

Well, as you can see, it's once again getting late, so we'll stop here for the evening.   Be sure to check back soon as we continue our Guided Tour when we show you more of everything we've been doing inside our wonderful new space! We're getting really excited about the big day, and can't wait for the doors to "officially" open on the new home of CraftFusion!

Don't forget the new address . . .

Feel free to bring any additional trim or accessories you'd like to dress your pieces up with.  As a bonus, this is a "pick & choose" Workshop . . . make all 3 pieces for $95.00 or make the Snowman alone for $60.00 . . . but make your reservations early because SEATING IS LIMITED TO 8 students only!  Call now to save your space because this one is sure to sell out fast!

Things Are Shaping Up as The Countdown Continues!

Ready for more Sneek Peeks at the new space?  Pull up a chair, grab a cool beverage, and follow along as we share with you everything we've been busy working on since we were last together in the next installment of our Guided Tour introducing you to the new home of CraftFusion!

Watch for CraftFusion to open Saturday, October 1st in our new home
in the Dobson Shores Shopping Center
(formerly The Scrubs Store)


We ended our last Tour as were walking through the new space after the floors had been prepped, but before all the painting had started.  Let's take it from there . . .

We've been working hard to get everything done in time for your "real" visit . . . it won't be long now! We think once you see what we've done with the place when you do come for your visit, we're sure you're going to love it!  But for now, follow along as we continue with our Sneek Peek!

Check out those floors!  The last time we saw them, they were "50 Shades of Grey", but now after receiving a coat of primer, they look so clean and crisp!  They won't be staying this color for long, though, because once the walls are painted, they'll be painted with a coat of warm chocolate brown.  Faux wood, if you will!

The painting begins on the walls with a coat of a bright, buttery golden yellow.  The new color makes the space feel so cozy and will go fantastic with the new floor color.


Pat's been going like a mad man trying to keep to the schedule, but sometimes it's necessary for him to stop for a break to boost his energy.  Good labor is hard to get, you know!



With one wall completely painted, it's now on to the others!  Time to pull out the blue masking tape, go around all the doors and windows and other places that aren't to be painted, then continue with the paint and roller.  It won't be long!


Well, as you can see, it's getting late, so we'll stop here for the evening.   Be sure to check back soon as we continue our Guided Tour when we show you more of the finished work and improvements inside our wonderful new space! We're getting exciting and hope you are, too, for the doors to "officially" open on the new home of CraftFusion!
