Upcoming Classes

I have a few classes coming up with a looming deadline, so I thought I would list the details in this post.

Scrapbook Class – Saturday, May 3 from 1:30pm to 4:30pm – Price of Class = $30.00

It’s National Scrapbooking Day! Let’s celebrate by making our very own scrapbook! Our scrapbook will hold 6 x 6 pages and you can choose the color! No more settling for ones that are in colors you don’t really want! We will use Berry Bliss and Spring Silhouettes designer paper from the catalog with matching cardstock and some embellishments such as ribbons, rub-ons etc. We will also make three 6x6 double page layouts to put in the six 6 x 6 page protectors to get you started plus instructions so you can make more! Please register for this class by April 19.

Featured Stamp Set – Just Celebrate – Tuesday, May 6 from 7pm to 9pm – Price of Class = $55.00

The featured stamp set this month is Just Celebrate from the Occasions mini. In this class, you will receive your very own Just Celebrate stamp set. Because all the stamp sets in the mini are die-cut, we will mount them in class and then we will make a card using each of the stamps! That’s a total of 8 cards! Please register for this class, with pre-payment by April 22, 2008.

Loonies for “Littles” class – Saturday, May 10 from either 10am to 12pm or 1pm to 3pm – Price of Class = $45

From April 15 to May 31 Stampin’Up! is offering a special package and donating $2 from each package sold to Big Brothers/Big Sisters in Canada! How cool is that? To celebrate, I will be hosting a class, at two different times, where we will complete the project that the package makes. For more information about the Loonies for Littles package, please see the flyer that is included with your registration package. Please register with pre-payment for this class by Thursday, April 17.

Hodge-Podge Hardware Class – Tuesday, May 20 from 7pm to 9pm – Price of Class = $45.00

Have you seen the cool hardware that is for sale in the catalog and now in the Occasions mini? Are you saying “Gee, I would really like that, but what would I do with all the pieces?” Then attend this class and I will show you! In this class you will receive a set of Hodge-Podge Hardware, your choice which one, and we will make a few projects using some of the different pieces in the kit. You can choose from an Aged Copper, Antique Brass, Pewter or Silver finish. Not sure you will need all the pieces? Then find a friend, split the cost of the class and share the hardware! Please register with pre-payment for this class by Tuesday, May 6

If you are in the Guelph, Ontario Canada area and interested in any of the classes listed above, click on the Contact me icon to the right and let me know!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Busy Weekend!

Well, the Spring Mega Stamp Camp is over and I can finally reveal the card I created and demoed!
Isn't it pretty? I used the Smackin' Acetate technique!

Ingredients: Embrace Life and All Holidays stamp sets, Rose Red, Basic Black and Glossy cardstock, Always Artichoke ribbon, black brads, Rose Red and Always Artichoke markers and acetate!

Overall, stamp camp went well, but I am sore from preparing lunch over a much too short table!

Until next time, happy stamping!
