Match Book Mini Christmas Album, with Bonnie

I love Kaisercraft’s St. Nicholas Collection.  It’s traditional with a touch of vintage.
This marvelous little match book album will be perfect for all those Christmas photos you will be taking this year.  There is room for photos and journaling on every page as well as tags to hold even more photos. 
You will learn a simple technique for binding that will allow you to modify or expand the basic design for future albums you wish to create.

A White Christmas, with Bonnie

These clean and simply elegant cards are designed using white papers and silver mirror papers. I love working with mirror paper but it is truly hard to take pictures of it.  You must see these cards in person to appreciate their real beauty.
In this class you will be playing with snow, glitter and a little Utee (ultra thick embossing enamel) to create these four gorgeous cards.
A class designed for all skill levels.

October Stack A Stash, with Maresa

What is Stack A Stash? Are you one of those people who, come November, are completely stressed out because Christmas is coming and you haven't even contemplated starting your Christmas cards? How about those last minute Birthday cards, do you have spares on hand?
Once a month we will be offering Stack A Stash, each month hosted by a different instructor. In these classes we will be making easy cards that can be adapted to any paper or sentiments.
These classes will be shorter, so that busy people will have a better chance of fitting them into their schedules. The class will always be the last Sunday of each month, so you can know well ahead of time when the classes will be offered. We will always do one Christmas card, and one all occasion card, but will do TWO of each design for a total of 4 cards per class.
Come to one class, or attend as many as you want. All skill levels welcome.
