Good afternoon

Hi everyone,

Hopefully Spring weather is around the corner and that Tuesday's storm was Winter's last gasp!

We will be having a Make 'n Take next Saturday, Mar. 30th. from 1:30-3:30pm.  They will run every half hour.  The cost is $3.00 if you register in advance and $5.00 if you sign up at the door.  It is Easter weekend so we figured we would keep it short.  You will make this cute little booklet with a pocket inside in which you can insert a card, CD, gift certificate or anything else you can think of.  You will make the booklet and a small card to match.

We have added another class to our calendar.  You will be using dies from Impression Obsession as well as Memory Box.  For those of you who took our last Make 'n Take, you can substitute the Spring card for the Halloween card.  You just have to let us know in advance so we can prepare the right kits.  You can see how versatile the tree is.

A Tree for all Seasons
Tues. Apr. 23rd. 10:30-1pm.
Sat. Apr. 27th. 1:30-4pm

Have a great weekend,

Good afternoon

Hi everyone,

We are certainly back into winter at the moment...but at least the days are noticeably longer.

All of the pre-orders have been placed so we now have to just sit back impatiently and wait... ;-(

We are having a Make 'n Take this Saturday the 9th. from 1-3:30pm running every half hour.  If you call to sign up in advance the cost is $3 and at the door $5.  Louise has created this cute Valentine card, which is also quick to make.

We have also added another class to the schedule using Wild Rose Studio stamps.  You will learn how to colour using coloured pencils and Gamsol for blending.  You will make 3 adorable cards using their coordinating papers.  I have just become a great aunt again and will definitely use this sweet little elephant to make the card for my niece.

Precious Bella ($39.50 including Gamsol Kit)
Tues. Feb. 19 10:30-1pm
Sat. Feb. 23 1:30-4pm

Have a cozy afternoon and we hope to see you at the Make 'n Take.

Hi everyone...

Good afternoon,

I'm sure you are all frantically trying tet everything done for Christmas.  I'm still in the process of making my cards and gift tags.  I guess I need to feel the pressure.

We still have some room in our Christmas Tags class.  You will make the cutest tags using our new rubber inchies Christmas set and you will learn how to divide the tin box to keep the tags separate.  You will also receive a 6 x 6 paper pad with the class.

                                                                              Sat. Dec. 15th. 1:30-1:30pm ($36.50)

We just received another shipment from Wild Rose Studio.  Here are some samples of what came in.  They are just SOOO cute!  We will be having a class using these stamps in the early new year.

Have a great rest of the afternoon and hopefully you have made some great progress on all of your Christmas cards, baking a crafts.  Back to it for me!
