September 24

Good Afternoon Fellow Crafters:

Here's our winner of our $25 Gift Certificate for our Fall Card Challenge:
JAN FRANCIS of Greeley and Tucson!  Take a look at this beautiful tri fold card! The embossed leaves look like dry fall leaves.  Great Job Jan!

 And at the inside:

Here's our runner up card from Nancy Higney of No. Carolina, who found our store last summer while on vacation:  These pumpkins, leaves and acorns were hand cut.  Good Job Nancy!

 And a photo of all our contenders:  Great job ladies!  It was a difficult  task for our teachers to pick just one, as you can see. Some of them were just as pretty or more so on the inside:

We have gotten so many amazing ideas from all our your cards!  These challenges are so much fun

Our next challenge has started.  GIRLY TAGS!  You do not have to buy a kit for this challenge, just one of our Prima Doll stamps ($7.59ea) and a #10 tag (lg) and then decorate that girly tag anyway you want! Emboss, add clothes, inks, embellishments, the sky is the limit.  Bring your creation in by Oct.10 to be judged.  We will have 2 categories:  Simple and Complex, each category winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to ARTSY. Again Our teachers will judge this competition.
Here's a photo of just a few of these stamps you can purchase for this competition.  Think outside your box!:

The roof lifts off and reveals the album.  She had this priced at $35 originally, but added more sections, fence, and other embellishments, so it had to be increased for the extra costs. So, call soon to register!

Another creative couple of weeks. Join us., we have amazing instructors!  Lots of fun in class, too.  Meet some new friends, as well.

Please remember to register and pay for the class you want at least 36-48 hours ahead, so the instructor has time to prepare for each student.  970  613-1631.
