March Classes

So here we go.  Let me see if I can tempt you with these clases....

You asked and we listened.  We will be offering morning, afternoon and evening classes!  Also for those of you looking to try some HOT new products, these classes are for you.  As always, our classes are great for beginners, intermediate and even advanced level paper crafters.  Classes are approximately 1.5-2 hours in length and all supplies are included in the class fee.  Give me a call at the store if you are interested in attending (DO NOT EMAIL!).  A message can be left on the phone if calling after hours.

PS....there are still spots available for Michelle's AMAZING Glitter Ritz Scrapbook Class THIS Saturday at 1PM.  See post below for photo and details!!!

Cards by Pauline

Yes!  Copic markers....beginner level!  I have heard many of you asking about the copic markers but have told me you are not quite ready to invest in 18+ markers required for Linda's advanced level technique class.  We also heard that you were looking for the return of Pauline's coloured pencil technique classes.   This is exactly what Pauline is offering this month!  Honestly, how cute are these?!?!?!

This is a technique class so it is essential to bring your own colouring tools to get the most out of the class.  Pencils can be purchased for $1.95 each and Sketch Copic Markers are $6.49 each.  Please let me know if you require any prior to class so  I can order them in if not in stock.

Dates:  Wednesday, March 2 @ 6PM OR Thursday, March 17 @ 1PM
Cost:  $17
Required Supplies:  Scissors, adhesive,

Colouring Tools Required:
Copics (these are ones you will use over and over me, you need to own these!)  E000, E00, E01, E11, R20

Cards by Debbie

Looking for a little sparkle in your life these days?  This class will give you what you are looking for!  This is Glitter Ritz at its MAX!  Debbie will show you two different ways to work with this beautiful new product.  You will also be distressing, using tools like the crop-a-dile, liquid pearls, edge punchers, spica pens and more.  These cards blew me away when I saw them in person and I know you will LOVE them too!
