Hi-eee! …waving…

Hi, hello!  I feel like I’ve been gone since forever after missing my last blog post here!  Long story short…arrived at the cottage after a long 4 day haul….electrical storms…no phone….no internet….no cell service….forced disconnection from all that I hold near and dear.  Kids before Instagram obviously, but only barely.

But we’re back up and running now and I have a nannouncement to make!  Usually nannouncements need drum rolls, but this one isn’t quite at that level.  No new babies, or retirements (though that one is coming soon I hope) or marriages.  Just a class or two.  In the fall.  Soon as the store re-opens!  Now there’s an event big enough for a drum roll, amiright?!

The first class I’ll be teaching is one we had thought to hold at the Spring Crop, but when that plan fell apart, we decided to hold it later this summer (or fall).  So DIY Embellishments will be held at the new store location on Saturday, Sept 9 at 9:30 am.  We’ll be using 12 different techniques to create dozens of embellishments for you to use on cards, layouts and mini albums.

The next class is The Vonderful Vorld of Vellum!  I’ll be showing you at least 4 different techiques for using vellum on your cards to create that extra detail that kicks your cards up a notch!  This class will be held on Saturday, Sept 9 at 1:00 pm.

I’ve been working on putting these classes together for a while now and I hope to see you there!  Watch the Classes page of the website for prices and supply lists.

Have a great and wonderful day!

Lotsa Layers Card Class

Hey guys!

Popping in quickly to share my upcoming card class with you.

This card class is being held the morning of my Lotsa Layers Mini Album class. They both feature…you guessed it…layering.

The mini album class is currently full but there is still room in the morning card class. For more class details click here.

This class will be held April 29th - 9:30-11:30.

My apologies in advance for the quality of these pictures…my lighting just did not cooperate.

I’ve chosen to feature the fancy Pants Design Golden days collection. Doilies, vellum, and Prima chalk inks will also be used.

Layering will of course be one of the main focuses during class. I  know layering can be intimidating for a lot of people so I’ve kept these cards simple.

Dies & embossing folders complete the card designs as well as Nuvo drops.

The typewritten sentiments are optional. Meaning, you will have a small selection of phrases/greetings to choose from: happy birthday, thank you, & sympathy.

For the most part I’ve kept the card designs gender neutral to make them more practical.

If you’d like to register for this class please call the store this week or drop in to sign up in person. Hope to see you in class!

Lovely (SUN)Day

Yes, happy Sunday. And Lovely Day is what I’ve been working with recently.

This new Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E.

More rose gold (yeah!), bright colours, and puffy stickers make this collection magical.

Cute, right?!

I just KNEW I had to make something cool with these products…and I had a stack of honeymoon pictures to document.

So I made a mini album.

This album is filled with layers, texture, ephemera, and love. (Cheesy, I know.)

And…you bet it’s a class!

The spots are extremely limited due to supply quantities so book ASAP. The official details should be up on the classes page later today.

Also, if there is interest in this type of mini album we will have a later class with a different paper line. Let us know!

The class includes how-to make the album itself, some basic watercolours, and LAYERING.

Wallet sized -2×3- photos (at least 10-12 of ‘em) are a requirement.

This album could work with a lot of themes…not just honeymoon. Trips, kids, babies, school pictures, Instagram pictures, wedding, etc. etc. Whatever you like. Every album will be slightly different and it is customizable to fit your style.

We are also scheduling a card class on the same day so if you’d like to make a day of it make sure to book spots for both classes.

Even if you’re not up for a class you really should check out the Lovely Day collection in person. The papers are gorgeous.
