May Stack a Stash, with Denica




On the last Sunday of each month, we teach a card class called Stack A Stash. Each month you will make two all occasion cards [theme to be determined by the instructor] and two Christmas cards. This is such a great way to start your stash of cards, and have them on-hand when an occasion arises.

This month's Christmas card is a bit of a twist as we will be making pop-up cards and using the cute MFT "Hug in a mug" die set. These cards fold flat and fit into a regular A2 size envelope and the nautical cards are wonderful for the men in your life.

Beautiful Day, with Maresa





Altenew is my new obsession.  Each time we get in a new order of these fabulous stamps, I always find one or two new "favourites".  Since Beautiful Day was my first love, I couldn't resist doing a class with these lovely stamps.

This class features great tips and tricks for stamp and die aligning, picking palettes for colour layering and will give boost your confidence if you haven't quite decided to take the leap into multi-layer stamping.

These cards can be easily adapted to any occasion, and a variety of sentiments will be provided. Alternately, you can leave the sentiments blank and stamp them to suit as the need arises.
