Summer Fun

Things here at the store are so exciting. We have these great summer plans and I thought I would give you more info than the newsletter could. First there is this months classes to share. .....We have Marihannah's creations for kids. We have divided up the kids by age groups the younger group (4-9 years old) meet at 11am on Tuesday mornings and will be making cute things, such as simple mini books and more. The older kids (10+ years old) will be working on an 8x8 album. Every week they will do a two-page layout, and by the end of the summer they will have a complete book to put all their summer memories into.
.....Next Lisa has a few lovely classes. My favorite is her Monochromatic Cards. She used My Minds Eye "Lush" papers to create very simple elegant cards.(photos to come.) She also has a beginners stamping class that is sure to give you all you need to know about stamping. If you have a graduate in your life you might want to look into Lisa's Graduation 2 pg layout. She uses stickers and sparkle papers to showcase your celebration.
.....My classes I hope are ones you all have been waiting for. The "Remember Album has been getting a great response, and run at the end of this month. I have been working hard on these complicated kits that use Tim Holtz dies from Sizzix, border punches from EK Success, and 7Gypsies "Venice" papers. It is perfect for heritage, showcase a vacation, or wedding. A very versatile album.

There is a Thursday night class and a Saturday afternoon class Check out the calender for times and dates. If you love this album you will probably love the "Altered Box" class that uses some of the same dies but they are used on wood paper. Check out this box. These two classes are some of my most favorite things I have ever created for classes. I am very excited about them, and hope you are too. Come and join me for this very special creation!
