June Watercolor Note Card Class (2016)

In this class we will be stamping 6 note cards with envelopes.

 We will be doing a simple watercolor technique that will 
give you an elegant look.

All 6 cards will be similar in style but just different colors/flowers
so you will have a uniform set  of notes.

You will also have a plastic card case to display them in.

These cases work great if you want to give your cards as a gift.
Just tie a ribbon around the plastic case and done!
Makes a great gift for a friend, co worker, teacher, etc...

This class will be $20 for the 6 cards, envelopes, and case.
If you prepay to hold your spot the class fee is only $18.00

Adhesive runner
Thats the least amount of supplies ever!
Scor tape (if you wish).

Class Dates:
I will be keeping the class sizes to 4 per class for this technique.

Saturday, May 28th @ noon. (full)

May Card Class

In this next workshop we will be stamping 5 cards
with envelopes.
There will be various themes for the cards.
We will also be trying some adhesive backed card stock to die cut with,
 it makes adhering your tiny pieces so much easier.

I love the set of dies for this one, it cuts the scallop, the box, and the bow.

 The inside of this shark card reads "cake!"

Thought we might need a guy card for the upcoming Father's Day holiday.
You could also use it for a man's birthday or even a 21st birthday card.

We will be making the beer foam look realistically puffy!

Some new Mama Elephant stamps for a cute birthday card.

The strawberry card says "That was berry sweet of you" on the inside.
I love this new set of rectangle dies I am carrying... 
they have alternating pierced and stitched shapes 
so you can have both on the same card.


Wednesday, May 4th @ 5:30 pm(full)
Thursday, May 5th @ 1 pm. (full)
Wednesday, May 11th @ 1 pm. (full)
Thursday, May 12th @ 5:30 pm. ( full)

Please bring adhesive runner, foam pop dots, glue pen, scor tape (suggested, not mandatory),
and if you have gray Copics (either C1, C3, T1, T3) please bring them.
It helps cut down on wait time for coloring.

"Let's Party!" Scrapbook Class

In this class we will be completing a 6x8 
Simple Stories binder album with a birthday theme.
The last 3 classes we did with these books were 
a big hit, and they are so addicting.

This album has 56 pages inside for photos, journaling, and memorabilia.

The book uses a Project Life style of scrapping... but better
because Simple Stories has matching paper and stickers
with their collections.

There are a lot of embellishments we will use to add interest 
and dimension.

The book will have quite a few lift-up spots for
hidden photos and journaling.

There will also be pockets for pull out tags and pages...
lots of surprises.
You wont be disappointed!

Class Dates:
Thursday, March 31st @ 5:30 pm. (full)
Saturday, April 2nd @ noon ( full)
Wednesday, April 6th @ 5:30 pm. (full)
Thursday, April 7th @ 1 pm. (full)
Thursday, April 7th @ 5:30 pm. (2 spots left)
Saturday, April 9th @ noon (full)

*Possibly more classes added if supplies are available!
Email me if you are interested in a take home kit.

Supplies Needed:
Adhesive runner, pop dots, Scor-tape, scissors, and
 a corner rounder (if you have one).

The class is $27.00 if pre-paid, $30 if paid the day of the class.
To buy the supplies separately it would run you almost $32, 
so this is a good deal!

March Card Class (2016)

In this workshop we will be thinking a little spring!
We will be stamping 5 cards with envelopes.

We will be coloring this rainbow a little differently using watercolor inks.
Of coarse Easter is on its way so we need at least one Easter card in the mix.

I love these sweet gnomes!
We will be doing some Copic coloring and shading on this one.

Now this is a different type of spinner card than we have done in the past.
The video below shows how it spins.


This card is honestly dark and light purple flowers, for some reason they look
 almost black in the photo I took.
These stamps are a color layering stamp set...
It takes a few stamps to make the bouquet look multi-colored.

Don't need a "Get Well" type of card, that's ok, this one works for almost any occasion.

Supplies Needed:
adhesive runner, Scor-tape, pop dots, 1 flat glue dot, scissors, glue pen.
(I sell all of these items if you don't have something.)
PLEASE bring Copic markers T1, T3, and R81 if you have them.
It will significantly cut down on wait time for the coloring.

The class is $17.00, if you pre pay to hold your spot the cost is $15.00
If you cant make the class and would like a kit just let me know before the classes start.
Cost is $17 for a kit.

Class Dates:
