I am back from my vacation back home to Massachusetts (in case you've been wondering where all the posts have been for the last 10 days).  It's good to be home!  Now I need a vacation from my vacation!  My daughter Colleen kept us very busy.  Between seeing family and all the shopping she dragged us to, I spent the week exhausted!   Poor hubby spent the whole time driving as my parents moved to the boonies a few years back and at least 45 minutes (and often up to an hour and a half) from all other family and any shopping.  We filled up on all our favorites things (food, shopping, etc) we have been missing all year!

Now it's time to get back to work and boy, do I have plenty to keep me busy!  Lots of classes coming up.  Here is a few of the upcoming classes (click the pic at the left for my calendar of events):

Thursday, August 19 ~ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
This is an ongoing class series called Technique Thursday. At these classes, you will learn a new technique every month. At each class, we will make a card or 3D project featuring the technique.  This month we will be learning the Faux Snakeskin and Alligator Techniques with a card for each technique.  These techniques are wonderful for masculine cards.

Additionally, we will make a 6" x 6" page with a sample of each technique along with the directions for it at each class. In a future Technique Thursday class, we will turn our 6" x 6" pages into a scrapbook that will hold all your techniques right at your fingertips!

Class Fee is $12 (due no later than August 17).

Saturday, August 21 ~ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Saturday, September 18 ~ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Saturday, October 16 ~ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Saturday, November 20 ~ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

This is the perfect, short-term club commitment for anyone who wants to send handmade Christmas cards but doesn’t feel like they have the time.  We will be meeting once a month during August, September, October and November to create 12 Christmas cards each month—4 each of three designs—for a grand total of 48 cards at the end of the four classes.  There will be fun folds, BLING, and a variety of styles and color schemes, so there will be something for everyone.

Our Christmas Club will be on the third Saturday of the month (unless those who sign up can all agree on a different night).  Club fee is just $15 per person per month for the four month commitment or $20 on a per class commitment and includes all paper, ribbon and supplies as well as refreshments.  Bring your own adhesives.

Join me in being prepared in advance for the holidays this year while enjoying a fun day to yourself once a month!

Saturday, August 28 ~ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Have you seen our newest punch - the Owl Punch?  It is absolutely adorable for owls, but that's not all.  Wait until you see what else you can make with it!  Pigs, Cats, Tulips and more!  Included in this class is your very own 2-Step Owl Punch to keep.  Since this punch is $19.58 (with tax and shipping), you are getting the class for only $10! 

Class Fee: $30 due by Aug. 6 to reserve your spot since the punch has to be ordered.  Includes all paper, ribbon and supplies as well as refreshments.

Note:  Since the deadline for ordering has passed, you can still sign up for the class, but you will receive your punch after the event instead of at the class.  You may still register for the class by Thursday August 26.

Sunday, September 12 ~ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Vintage is one of the hottest trends right now in scrapbooking and cardmaking.  I tend towards the more clean-lined side of vintage.  Join me to learn how to add the Vintage Vibe to your cardmaking!  In this class, we will use the fabulous new Smooch Spray, the Color Spritzer and the NEW Distressing Kit.

Class Fee: $15 due by Sept. 10 to reserve your spot.  Includes all paper, ribbon and supplies as well as refreshments.  Bring you own adhesives.
All supplies are included, please bring your SNAIL adhesive (or other adhesive) - class kit is recommended (bone folder, scissors, etc.) list provided ~ email me at or give me a call.
