Okay... ready to know what it is? 

It is priced about $25 (specific number to come... sorry friends, I couldn't wait to share)!

Scrap-A-Stack!

Does anyone else keep a stack of cards in your closet for all kinds of occasions?  Just in case you forgot to grab a birthday card at the store or you need a thinking of you card ASAP!

I have a stash of cards that are in my arsenal for any type of occasion and I love making a lot of them at once.  It takes a while to get my stash out and get started, so I find the more I can make at once the better!  And Sara is at it tomorrow making a bunch of cards.  You will make 12 cards in class and will take home materials to make at least 12 more!  


How cute are these and perfect for any recipient?  You can sign up for the class right here and grab your spot!  Can't make class and really want to make the cards?  We offer a to-go pack of pictures (no instructions) to create these cards at home on your own time!  

I highly recommend these card classes as a great starting point and inspiration for creating your own set of cards from any set of 6x6 paper and embellishments!

Now, go sign up and get crafty!

Mondaaaaay!

Happy Monday everyone! 

I can't believe the weekend is already over! They go so darn fast!  This is going to be a crazy busy week at the store - we have the always fabulous Dyan Reaveley coming to spend the weekend with us (grab your spot here), armed with brand new products and amazing techniques, a VIC Shopping Day, Knitting class, Scrap Club, AND a card class!  I am exhausted from typing it all! 

All of our weekly events can be found on the calendar and has links to individual registration! 

I also noticed this little line roll through the Facebook page this weekend and I am in LOVE!  When the clock strikes 10 am, I am calling to grab my own set of this precious Adventure Awaits line from Echo Park!  There are some characters that remind me a lot of "wild rumpus" and the colors are incredibly rich!



I cannot wait to see what our Design Team does with this incredible line!  Want to grab a spot on our design team?  This is the last week to get your submission in!  Your projects need to be in the store by Wednesday!

Now, go get crafty!

Lettering Classes!

I promised I would let you know about lettering classes when they got officially scheduled!  So, grab your pencils and your planners ladies, because October 13 is about to blow your mind!  This may be the busiest day we have had in a really long time!  Our poor web calendar is stretched as far as it will go!

First up, it is make and take day with City Chick Margaret.  Make and takes go from 10-2 and make sure you leave plenty of time to wait for your turn and complete the project!


Also at 10 am, Missy is hosting another amazing Bible Journaling workshop!  This is her monthly series and this month is all about balancing the circus of life!  Seriously, these workshops are AMAZING and you will not be disappointed!  You can register for this awesome class right here!



And in the afternoon, we will letter!  At 2:30 pm, I will be teaching lettering at the store!  The first class is Bounce and Serif and this is a class for those who have some lettering experience.  We will be learning two brand new fonts and creating a little framed art piece to take home at the end of class.  I have people ask all the time if they are ready to take the class and my rule of thumb is, if you can make a letter with consistent upstrokes and downstrokes you are ready!  You want to be driving your pen and not your pen driving you!  Sign up for bounce and serif class right here!


Then, at 4:45, we will be doing a little live sermon note taking!  Learn tons of tips and tricks for creating beautiful hand lettered notes.  We will be practicing with a sermon, but these skills can be applied to any kind of lettering. This class is about an hour and 15 minutes long and you will leave with a ton of information to take with you!  You can take this class with or without hand lettering experience.  I highly recommend staying after bounce and serif for this one - you will be putting those skills to practice!  Sign up for Sermon Note Taking here!
