So without further ado, here are this fall's class offerings ...

All Things Burlap - $14 - Frances Brown


Do you love burlap like I do?  You will be amazed at all the ways we will use burlap in this class.

Lots of techniques and tips!

We will make one adorable Christmas project suitable for gift giving, 3 tags and 3 rustic-contemporary cards. If that weren't will also get to see several projects that will  be demonstrated in the class only to class participants.   You will be able to see them up close and personal and take pictures if you like. Very cool stuff!

Card/Tag Gift Set - $15 - Sheri Bradley

A great Christmas set of 6 tags (3 different designs) and 4 cards (2 different designs) all in a handmade gift box with see through cover. Three super colors of Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso are featured from the Specialty DSP Under The Tree. I used this DSP to assemble the box and tags. Four cards are made from the SU stamp set Cheerful Christmas. They are all wrapped up in the new Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon. This set would make a great gift or keep for yourself!



Festival of Trees!   Fee - $12 - Peggy Taylor

                                          and June Welch

Connecting with family and friends is always a special part of the Holiday. In this class we’ll be featuring the new Stampin’ Up Holiday stamp set, Festival of Trees, and the coordinating Tree Punch to create 4 clean and simple cards. Throw in a new technique or two, a card packaging idea, several tags and you’ll be on your way to making that handcrafted Holiday connection.  (Note, this is a partial photo of the finished class, just to give you a sneak preview.)
