Teacher Feature ~ Marilou Smith

Hello girls!  December we are featuring Marilou Smith.  She works in the store part-time, but also teaches wonderful classes.  If you haven't taken a class from her, you better get signed up for one!! *wink*  Let me introduce Marilou....

I've been a crafter for as long as I can recall and some of my earliest memories are of using scraps of fabric, given to me by my Mom, to make clothes for my dolls. I remember holding my paper dolls up to a window with a piece of paper in front of them and designing new outfits for them. I taught myself to crochet when I was 12 and made my new baby brother some booties. I learned to sew at my mother's feet and took classes in Jr. and Sr. high school. Needless to say, I suppose, but I've done just about every kind of craft there is and have all the tools and supplies to prove it. LOL I've sewn everything from doll clothes to wedding gowns and knitted or crocheted baby outfits to women's sweaters. I've done needlepoint, cross stitch, tole painting and macrame'. Hey, I'm ancient and I love to learn new things!!
In 1988, at the age of 40, after being an at-home-mom to my 4 children for 18+ years, I headed to SWOCC to become an RN. Crafting took a back seat during those busy 4 years of college and while working full time at BAH, but in 2002, I had a car accident, which did a lot of damage to my knees. While I was recovering from my injuries, I began crafting again. I discovered a message board with women from all over the world. who freely shared everything they knew, taught me how to use a graphic program, and how to manipulate those images and create some amazing handcrafted items. I designed my own website and began selling my "wares" across the U.S. and through a local craft guild. I enjoyed doing custom design work for my customers and did a lot of it. I made cards, glass block lights, wedding and party favors, albums, goodie and gift cans, magnetic paper dolls, journals, address books, and so much more, using digital images I purchased from well known artists.
I was able to return to work in 2005, as a Nurse Manager in a medical center, but I continued to create and sell my items. In 2010, after having both my knees replaced, I had to retire, and it was at this time that I discovered MOT and our precious Michelle! All it took was one Copic coloring class and I was forever hooked!! Michelle, appropriately, labeled me as a "hybrid crafter," and it's true, because I still color using "digi stamps" for my cards. However, gradually, I have found it difficult to resist adding "real" stamps to my growing collection of crafty "stuff."
When I began working with graphics, I realized I love paper as much as I do fabric. I love the scent, the feel and all the colors of the beautiful patterned papers available in today's market ...and at MOT!! So, in addition to creating my cards, I love to design boxes, journals, albums, tags and just about anything I can think of, with paper. I'm still learning to do many of the techniques that some my fellow teachers at MOT use, but I bring to the table years of experience in many other fields, which I feel adds to my ability and creativity. I love to teach and to see my student's faces light up in that "Ah ha" moment when learning new ideas and techniques ...and when they make something they thought they never could!

Teacher Feature - Sue Bridston

Hello girls!
We've decided to do a feature each month on our teachers here at Memories of Time.  This month, we are featuring Sue Bridston... meet Sue!  Don't miss her upcoming Heavenly Holiday Workshop on the 17th of November!  *wink*
I started Rubber Art Stamping about 20 years ago, and fell in love with the idea of being able to create beautiful cards without the labor intensive process of having to do the drawing myself. At first it was all about making multiples of the same card; but I soon realized there was a whole world of surfaces that I could put the stamped images onto if I could just figure out how to do it. Hence my journey into "altered art surfaces" began, and little did I know that there were people out there who appreciated what I was experimenting on/with and wanted to know how to do what I was doing in my artwork.

That's how I became a "teacher", and my passion is being able to show others what I have learned and tried. There is nothing more satisfactory than having someone be so excited that they were able to create a thing of beauty when they thought that they weren't creative enough! All it takes is for you to want, to be open to the how, and to know that you just have to "do it" and see if it works when learning to be creative. There are no mistakes, just opportunities to learn what works and what doesn't.

I love color, textures and the magic that happens when you add rubber stamp images to that mixture. My favorite texture products are from Golden, they have made artist quality paints and gels for a very long time. Some of my have-to-haves are Gesso; for so much more than just a primer! Matte Medium for an exceptional adhesive, top coat and my all time fave for resists. Molding Paste for stamping into while wet or scraping thru a stencil. Regular Gel in a Matte finish for "clear" textures and an awesome adhesive for heavier objects. A new product that I have been impressed with is Light Molding Paste, it's like stucco in appearance, but all similarities end there.

Coloring products- don't even get me started!! I have Golden acrylics, Pearl Ex dry pigments and every watercolor palette they make. Dare I say that I probably have 75 (who really counts?) Twinkling H2O's, every color of Tim Holtz's Color Washes, the entire set of Lyra Watercolor Crayons, Alcohol inks, all the colors of Walnut inks ever made, and the newest, yummy coloring tools, the Gelatos just to name a few. There are so many ink pads that can be used for 'watercolor' looks if used on my all time must have item; a Teflon Craft sheet (yeah, I have more that one!).

You are only limited by your imagination, and your willingness to see what happens when you use products in a way not intended for what they were developed. I have been sorely disappointed at times, but more often than not I have been wonderfully surprised and in either case, it was a worthy learning experience.

I hope you will consider taking a class with me, and I welcome the opportunity to share with you all that I have learned in my journey into the world of "altered art surfaces".

Live Creatively,
Sue Bridston

LYB Acorn Hollow Pumpkin Patch Mini Album

I fell in love with Little Yellow Bicycle's Acorn Hollow line as soon as I opened the box!  The line came with a 6x6 album with an acrylic front, plus 6x6 paper pads.  It was screamin' at me to throw together a quick album.  I love LYB lines... it makes putting together albums, cards, photo frames, scrapbook pages... SO easy!  I used two of the sticker sheets, Favorite Pieces,  Fresh Verses, plus the Chipboard Shapes and Paper Embellishments.   I made one tag with the AccuCut dies here in the store, plus added ribbon on the rings, used couple sheets of brown cardstock and some eyelets, but other than that, it was all items from the line.  I even had left overs!  I made a frame with those (I will show you later this week). 

So, if you visited the Pumpkin Patch and want a cute keepsake or gift, this couldn't be easier! Come down to the store one afternoon, bring your photos and I will help you whip one up!  Easy peasy!

Have a great day!
