DISTRESS INK TECHNIQUES:  These magic pads can create a lot of diverse looks and Distress Inks are truly the “in” thing these days! Come in and learn at least 7 techniques and take home instruction tags for all 7.  Bring your basic kit to class.   With Patsy on Tuesday, 2/2 from 2-4.  $30

GERMAN SCRAP CARDS & TAGS: "German Scrap" is a traditional foiled paper cut into various shapes -- such as vintage lace, crowns, wings, keys, hinges, et cetera. It was not self-adhesive and had to be glued on as ephemera. It is also known as Dresden Scrap or Dresden Paper.  It has a Victorian era connection and was used prior to home die cut machines.  Using Prima "Color Bloom" spray mists, we will create the foiled-like paper and then cut into die shapes.  Class includes two cards and two tags.  The tags can be recut and mounted into cards at home if you like.  Also included are four envelopes made using the Envelope Punch Board and quality text-weight paper.  Scotch tacky (white) glue with fine point applicator tip is required and you can purchase these up in the store that day if you don’t have one already.  Students will take home a few extra pieces of German Scrap for future projects.  Bring your basic kit to class.  With Cherri on Thursday, 2/4 from 2-4:30.  4/$14

TAGS (& BLOCKS) VALENTINE’S DAY:  It’s truly a toss-up as to which of these tags you’ll opt to make at class – BOTH focus on love, but with two different tones!  Both – simply beautiful and offer great textures!!  Bring your basic kit to class.  With Grace on Thursday, 2/4 from 6-8    $15

FROSTED CARD PARTY!! (Mother/Daughter/Princess):  Forget those winter blues with this fabulous little party focused on a “Frosted” theme (cuz Frozen was already taken – plus the paper collection we’ll use is called “Frosted”!!).  We’d like to invite mothers and daughters (ages 6 and older) to attend as a team or individually – cuz you’re either a mother or a daughter or both!!!  We’ll make two very special cards that will also teach you a few simple tricks and techniques, plus you’ll learn how to make an awesome Snowman Treat Bag and receive the contents for the snowman too!  You’ll also enjoy special music, Frosted treats, snacks, and beverages included with this party.   “Frozen” costumes are welcome if you or your little princess have one – but regardless, I promise you’ll leave feeling and looking like a Princess!!
