January 2021 Class Schedule

 New January Class Schedule


What a great Preview Day!  Lisa and I had so much fun visiting with all who came by to see and sign up for the new classes for January.  I am so happy everyone loved the Make 'n Take which we'll now be calling the "Take 'n Make" Kit to go.  With Covid still on the scene we feel it is safer to make our traditional Make 'n Take a "to go" event.  With that in mind, I get everything ready to color and assemble as a kit and you get to take it with you to create when you get home.  Here's the cute "winter" greeting card we handed out on Saturday.


 I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed making this card.  Without further ado, here is the schedule for January.


GR45 Christmas Envelope Album - $35

Thurs, January 7 - 10:30 am OR 6 pm

You've got those Christmas photos and now you need a place to put them where you can enjoy them for years to come.  Of course you can scrap them in a book, but how about a mini album just to grab throughout the year?  Make this beautiful journal using Graphic 45 papers and 5x7 envelopes.  There are pockets and belly bands just waiting for you to insert those wonderful memories!

December 2020 Classes

 

December Classes

2020


Preview Day was a blast.  I gave out all of the Make 'n Take Kits to Go which made me very happy.  I know this is something everyone enjoys and it makes me happy to provide them.  This was the card everyone received to complete.


I used the Woody Pencils to color the instore sample.  Such a simple product to use with wonderful results!

Lisa has provided us with a great December schedule.  Last week's class had to be rescheduled for next week (first week of December).  If you didn't make it by for Preview Day, I hope you'll make it by on Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving to look.  I am certain you'll want to enroll in one of the classes.

So here we go..... the December class schedule!

Christmas Gift Tags

Thurs, Dec 10 - 10:30 am OR 6 pm

Friday, Dec 11 - 10:3 am


Every year our good friend Adona asks for a Christmas tag class.  This year's class features "action" tags.  These are tiny works of art and each one slides or flips to reveal the "to/from" portion of the tag.  You'll have so much fun working on these tags and the packages they adorn will be loved by all!

Inspirational Flip Ring

Thursday, Dec 17
10:30 am OR 6 pm


Lisa has been wanting to create this class for quite some time.  You'll create tags featuring inspirational and uplifting quotes and verses.  Using lots of colors and stamps, you'll then add an eyelet to each so they can be dangled on a big binder ring.  Ribbons will adorn the ring.  These will bring you much joy and will also make wonderful gifts for all your friends.  We definately need the kind of encouragement included on these tags during these trying times!

2021 Flip Calendar
$35
Tuesday, Dec 29

This easy flip calendar is made using Graphic 45's new "Woodland Friends" paper collection.  When we saw this paper we knew we had to use it for this calendar idea she had.  It will also double as a memory keeper as well!  Each month find your favorite photo for the month and print it out.  Then attach it to the back of the calendar page and add a little memory journaling.  You'll keep this one by your favorite chair and flip through it often in the years to come!

We had a lovely day Saturday on Preview Day.

Our classes are limited to 6 students in order to provide proper social distancing.  It has been working well for the last few months.  Everyone has half a table and obviously a lot of individual attention since Lisa is working with a smaller group.  Students have been extremely happy with the arrangement.  IF the class you desire is full, we will open up another class in the morning time slot on Friday.


Here's the schedule for September

August 2020 Lineup


Ready for Classes?
August 2020 Schedule

We had a great Preview Day on Saturday and the Make 'n Take To Go Kit was a hit.  Here's the finished product.....


Stamps by Impression Obsession, green dot paper by BoBunny.  The kit included all the layers and uncolored stamped layers.  You could color it any way you like.  I used the Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks in Magenta Evergreen, Olive, and Umber.  I colored parts of the flower and leaves with the sticks and then activited it with water using a Simply Simmons #8 watercolor brush.  For the think stems and smaller leaves I touched the Scribble Sticks with the wet brush and then painted the smaller parts.

There are a few stamps left as well as a few sheets of the BoBunny paper.

Lisa has an outstanding class schedule for August.  The introduction of Lisa's classes is the main reason we have Preview Day.  You get to see them up close and enroll on the spot!

"Let the Art Out of Your Heart and Create Every Day!"

Monday, June 22, 2020

It's time for classes!


July 2020 Classes

Get ready to have some fun!


We are slowly getting back to a normal rythym again.  We are still limiting class size to 6 and it seems to be working well.  There is a nice energy in the room and there is plenty of room for us to keep that safe distance recommendation.  I hope you'll join us when you feel comfortable enough.  

Demo Day has become Preview Day.  We don't feel it is appropriate to have a hands on Make 'n Take yet (that day will come!) so we tried a new approach last Saturday.  We offered a Make 'n Take Kit to Go.  Everything was ready for coloring and assembly.  I wasn't sure how many to make but we handed out all 28 of the kits I prepared!  Yay!  


I did color it later as I hadn't quite figured out what I wanted to use.  As I was taking the pics for the class schedule it occured to me that the Stabilo Woody Pencils would be perfect.  I simply took a wet brush directly to the pencil as it is a watersoluable "crayon" of sorts and voila'....quick and easy!  We used the beautiful "Happy Butterflies" stamp set.  I have 2 sets left and if you purchase one I'll print out the directions for you..

Lisa's July class schedule is filled with a good balance of card and mixed media classes.  There is something here for everyone.
