April’s Free Class

hp photosmart 720hp photosmart 720hp photosmart 720I am very excited about April’s Free Class!  We’ll be doing Easel Cards.  You may have done easel cards before, but we’ll add a new twist with a Triple Easel Card. This card will collapse to fit in an envelope.  The classes will be held the last two weeks of April.  I’m showing them to you early, to give you time to gather some of your friends to take the class.  If you have a group, email me when you would like to take the class, and I will save that time for your group.  Remember, the class is free to any one who spends $25.00 in the 30 days before the class.  So, get your groups together, or watch for my class days and times.


Trade Show

hp photosmart 720Please note, that the store will be open regular hours Monday and Tuesday of this week and from 10:00 to 3:00 on Wednesday.  It will be closed starting Thursday, April 2nd for a couple of weeks,  while I am attending an education event/trade show.  I will be looking for new products, and learning new techniques and about new ways to use those products.  Watch for posts while I am away.  I’ll let you know when the store will reopen.

The above cards uses a  butterfly die from Cottage Cutz and a fancy oval from Spellbinders.  The Spellbinders die is one of my go to dies that I use a lot.

I hope that you’ll stop in Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday to get anything that you “need” for your projects while the store is closed.  And, keep watching the blog for pictures of the cards we’ll be doing in April’s Free Class.  I will also be posting the times of those classes.

Great Use For Sticker Negative

hp photosmart 720    This card was made with the negative part of one of Elizabeth Craft stickers that we used in the class last week.  One of the class participants did this at home and sent it to me.  Thanks, Madonna!  That’s the way to get double duty from the sticker pack.  Stop in the store to see these stickers in all kinds of themes.  And don’t forget to check out the border and word stickers, too.  You can see the border stickers used on the card.  Also, in case you didn’t know, if you click on the picture, it will enlarge so you can see the details better.

March Free Class

hp photosmart 720hp photosmart 720hp photosmart 720

Hard to believe, but it’s time for March’s Free Class.  This month we’re going to make Shaker Cards.  Above you see three cards that we’ll be making.  If you’ve never made Shaker Cards, I think you’ll enjoy them.  If it’s been awhile since you made a Shaker Card, come in and brush up on your technique.  Remember, if you’ve spent $25.00 in the store this past month, you’ve qualified to take the class for free.  If you would like to come otherwise, the class is $20.00.  I’m planning on teaching the class on this Thursday, the 19th at 10:00 and again Saturday, the 21st at 10:00.  If there is interest for next week, I’ll plan classes then, too.  You will need to bring scissors, adhesive, and foam mounting tape.  Everything else will be provided.  If you would like to register, please email me or call me at the store (501-525-7826).  Hope you can join me.  Call soon.
