January's Scrapbooking Class

January's Scrapbooking class will be creating three 2 page layouts using the beautiful Wonderland Level 2 paper packets and the Workshop on the Go. These photos are of pages 5 and 6 that I created using the Wonderland MyStickease packet. Took some artistic license and made them my own. Look forward to seeing what you do with yours on the 16th at 1 pm.

New Special Project Class

I have decided to offer a Special Project class each month beginning in January. This class will take the place of my Play Day with Pizza and a Project. Class will run from 11 am until we're finished - usually before 3 pm. Bring your lunch and we'll take a 1/2 hour break at 12:30, then finish up. Since this is new, I might adjust the time frame.

On January 31st at 11 am, I will be offering a "Trinket Box" class. We will be taking the Card Box shown on page 131 of the Autumn/Winter Idea Book and some of the paper from the Typeset Level 2 paper packet and transform them into a trinket box that looks like a book. I was inspired to present this class by one of my favorite sister consultants, Vicky Wizniuk from British Columbia, Canada. She has such fun ideas that she willingly shares with the rest of us.

Kit for the class will be $10 and I will need your reservation with pre-payment by January 15th. Class size is limited to 12 ladies.


My Stamp Pad is open 2 days per month to provide you with a place to work on your own projects away from the hustle and bustle of your busy life. I am available to answer questions and offer suggestions, however, I may be working on something of my own as well.

January's Stamp-A-Lot schedule is Friday the 6th and Wednesday the 18th from 10 am - 3 pm. Space is available for up to 12 ladies on a first come basis; reservation is preferred a few days in advance.

You're welcome to use my stamp sets and ink pads, paper is available for sale; otherwise whatever you need for your project, you bring it, including your tool kit. We all do our own clean up.

Look forward to seeing you.
