We've Had A Change Of Plan!

The card class scheduled for August 13th at 6 p.m. will consist of these Scenic Route cards instead of the transparency cards shown previously. Here is a nice peek at them.

Note you'll be making four cards instead of three, and there is lots of good summer color here! Come and enjoy!

Gate-fold Transparency Cards

Here they are! Super cute cards. As usual, Elizabeth has done something very special!

The class is August 13th at 6p.m. Give us a call, or stop by and sign up! You'll learn a lot! And have a lot of fun too!

Watch for some "sneak peaks" coming soon for the fall classes! It's getting exciting around here!

The Classes are Coming! The Classes are Coming!

Are you ready for some classes? We are! Coming August 11th - 13th, three amazing classes to suit your fancy! These are special session classes as we usually take August off. So, just this quick little spurt, and then we won't be back with classes until after Labor Day. Hold on to your hats, because we have got it going on for you!

First, on Monday, August 11th, at 6 p.m. you'll have the opportunity to make this darling little hat box. This sample was done by our phenomenal design team member, Peggy Lucas, who will be teaching this class. The box is just full of so many fun details! It is on display in the store, so go check it out - the pictures do not do it justice. Once you see it, you're sure to want to sign up for the class! And, you'll be able to select your own papers, so you can make it to match your own decor, or as a special gift for a friend!

On Tuesday evening, again at 6 p.m., we'll be offering a class with these two pages (you saw the sneak peaks last week). They are both very detailed, with a little rustic mixed with some vintage, and a whole lot of fun thrown in! You will learn to use the Ranger Distress Inks, try a couple of paper distressing techniques, incorporate denim, break out the micro beads, create your own letters from naked chipboard, use the Cricut machine, do a little doodling, and so much more! Plus, we've used at least two recycled materials to make one of these projects very "green." These pages are available to enjoy at the store as well. Stop in and take a look!

And on Wednesday, August 13th, again at 6 p.m. we'll have a card class by Elizabeth. Sorry photos not currently available, but we are working on it - hope to have them by Friday! But, with Elizabeth, you almost don't need photos because you know her cards are outstanding! You'll enjoy every one of these cards and learning to techniques to make them!

Mark your calendars! Call the store and reserve your spot in these wonderful classes! We can't wait to see you there!

Have you seen some of the cool summer-time papers we have in the store?

Take a look at this line from Scenic Route!

You don't want to miss out on using these fun bright colors! But the line has more to offer than that. Look here:

The classic stripes and plaid make for some wonderful details in any fun summer layout!

And what could be more summer like than a trip to the sea shore. That is exactly where Christine Adolph takes you with her new papers and embellishments from Creative Imaginations. Here is a fun way to turn those papers into a page:

Cool and refreshing to look at! Fun for all ages. Beautiful papers to enhance your beautiful papers.

Come on in and check out these papers and so much more!
