WOW, look at all that snow, it's beautiful (until it gets dirty).  Wish I didn't have to drive in it, though.        
On a sad note:
We have been informed by several of our students and a teacher that at least 2 of our classes by 2 different instructors have been copied and reproduced and then used as classes by teachers of one of our competitors, for their own profit.  This must be a mistake, why would anyone try to profit by stealing from someone else's hard work ( hours of design work, cutting out, etc.)? Yes, well it's disturbing for most of us, isn't it.  I guess you know who you are and so do lots and lots of others, apparently. It really is stealing, when you do it for profit, without gaining permission from the designer, or at least offering to pay for the designs that you will make money on......

PLEASE DO NOT COPY OUR CLASS EXAMPLES FOR YOUR OWN PROFIT, or take a class and then teach it for your own profit, without permission or $$, thank you.

So on a much happier note:  We have received Elizabeth Craft Designs' new dies( she also has new embossing folders coming), Memory Box's new dies and their new stencils, new Impression Obsession dies and stamps, etc.  Lots of new items being delivered from our CHA orders already---too much fun!  Come in and check us out.

I'm sorry that our blog is late this month!  I have had influenza (I had a shot, which made it a shorter duration) and Patsy was in Phoenix for several days.  I had to close the store Mon (snowing) and Tues morning, until Patsy returned from her short vacation.  I apologize but I was not doing well. But I'm back at it, feel great now.

Here's our class photos for the first 2 weeks of February:

Sat, 2/1, from 10:30-12:30, Julia will teach another beautiful 3D frameable piece of art SWEET SENTIMENTS 3D.  It's $20 and you must bring a paper tooling kit (fat ended styluses which we sell) along with your basic kit, lots of pop dots, cutting matt and craft knife, too.  Julia brings all the stickles, cut fast!

That same afternoon Julia will teach G45 Jan and Feb page layouts, just $20 for 4 scrapbook album pages.  If you missed these months last year, its' the last time you can create them with Julia!

Mon 2/3 we will host OPERATION WRITE HOME form 1-3pm.  It's free, come in to help us create cards for our troops over seas to write home on.  Please bring your basic kit and any cards you would like to donate to our soldiers!  Remember no glitter, no stickles!

Wed, 2/5, Grace will teach another wonderfully designed box in VALENTINE BOX, from 10-4, break for lunch.  If you are a returning student to this box design, it's $45 and you should be here at 12:30-4 and come in and pick up your cut out box pieces to assemble before that day.  NEW students: just look at this beautiful box, it's $55 for you but look at what you get:  Bring lots of scor tape!
(JUST 1 OPENING LEFT FOR THIS CLASS): Do not try to teach this one for profit, it's her daughter's design that she sells online!

That same afternoon from 2-4, Dianna will teach SCATTERED HEARTS CARDS, and yes it's a kit that we bought from the company, and another store has taught is earlier,  but Dianna always changes it and makes it more interesting, this is even more beautiful, 2/$8:

Bring lots of scor-tape! Here is another beautiful box album:  AGAIN DO NOT TRY TO TEACH THIS ONE FOR PROFIT, THIS IS HER DAUGHTER'S DESIGN THAT SHE SELLS ONLINE:

And that concludes the first 2 weeks of Feb.  Aren't these classes great! Lots of creativity and cheap prices from our instructors!

Please remember to sign up for classes at least 36 hrs ahead of scheduled time, so that the instructor can prepare for the exact number of students.

Please remember to arrive at least 10 min before (or earlier to shop) class starts to get settled in.  It's not nice to hold up class waiting for someone.  Most of our classes will start on time, they have to!

You must bring a basic tool kit to each class (not Technique Tuesday), consisting of detail scissors, tape runner, liquid adhesive, pop dots, ruler, scor tape, paper piercer, craft knife, etc. and bring a score pal or scor-buddy for our album classes.

Every student receives a 10% discount on regular priced purchases, either right before or right after your scheduled class.
