August Classes 2016

Classes in August

We always have a lot of fun on Demo Day.  This last Saturday was no exception.  It was one of our more relaxed days and the Make 'n Take was really cute.  Here's what we made.....

Everyone enjoyed making it and we sold out of all the stamps and dies.  I hope you will make it for next month's Demo Day if you missed this one.  We always have a great FREE Make 'n Take for you as well as the new class schedule.

Speaking of new class schedules, here's what Lisa has planned for us in August!

Sympathy Simplicity Cards
Thursday, Aug 4
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Learn a new technique for creating backgrounds using an acrylic block mount.  This technique is so much fun and so easy, you'll be wondering why you didn't learn this sooner!

File Folder Journal
Thursday, Aug 11
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Lisa didn't have room on the schedule last month for this beauty.  It was on display and the response was overwhelming.  Here it is for you now.  A wonderful vintage creation you will enjoy making.  Tim Holtz papers and stamps.  You can add photos or journal in it when you are finished.

Canvas Journal Cover
Sunday, Aug 14
2 pm to 5 pm

Lisa and I learned a very fun technique at a workshop a few weeks ago using Gelatos on canvas.  Here's Lisa's take on the technique.  It is an 8-1/2 by 11 canvas cover.  When you have finished, you can insert a mixed media art journal inside or even a spiral notebook!  Who knows what else you'll create once you know how!

Birthday Greetings
Thursday, Aug 18
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Who doesn't need birthday cards?  Beautiful birthday cards made using using papers from the Belle Vie collection by Photo Play and stamps from Hot off the Press and Impression Obsession.

Saturday, Aug 20
10 am to 4 pm
Come and Go

Most of you already know just how much fun Demo Day is.  From the FREE Make 'n Take to the reveal of Lisa's next class schedule, you will always be glad you came!  Be sure to mark your calendar for this one too.  Grab a friend and join us for all the fun!

Canvas Frame Accordian Book
Thursday, Aug 25
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Wow!  What can I say!  Lisa has been working on this one for a while.  Twelve pockets are assembled accordian fashion and the journaling cards in each one can hold special memories or photos.  

Mini Book Play
Saturday, Aug 27
1 to 3 pm

Do you like miniatures?  This is the class for you!  I should have put a quarter in the photo so you could see for yourself how small these mini books are!  This is a fun class and you will enjoy learning how to make them.

Additional Class details

Enrollment:  You can enroll in any class in person at the store or by phone or email.

Class Fees:  Class fees are due at the time of enrollment.  Payment can be made in the store by cash or check.  When Lisa is present in the store (most Tuesday mornings) you can use your credit card.  If you call or email to enroll, you can mail a check made out to Lisa or she can send you a Paypal invoice.

Basic Kit:  Everyone is expected to bring a Basic Supply Kit to class.  If you are new and do not know what to bring, we will be happy to help you make sure you have what you need.  Supplies include basic paper crafting tools and supplies that are considered necessary whenever you are paper crafting.  Lisa normally supplies all other items although there are some exceptions to that on occasion.

I hope you will join us for one or all of these exciting classes.  We have a great deal of fun and you can make new friends!
