2020 Calendar Class

It will soon be time to be thinking about 2020!  I was thinking this morning about 2000 and 2010 ~ it is hard to believe that we will soon be thinking about, and planning for, 2020!!!  Well last Saturday was my first class to create calendars for the new year.  It was a busy class with 12 stampers creating from one to five calendars.  Some created a calendar for themselves but others have a tradition of giving calendars to favorite friends.  Here are my stamping friends from the class ~

Barbara signed up to make five calendars ~ that's a LOT of stamping but she had a plan and ~ a little help timewise.  I have added an early arrival time for those making four or five calendars ~ a head start so to speak.  So if the class begins at ten they come at nine which helps immensely!  And, Barbara completes one set ~ finishes it completely ~ and stamps the others but assembles them after the class.  Here's Barb's FIVE calendars ~ completed ~ and she sent the picture yesterday!  I'm impressed!
Barb's five finished 2020 calendarsI have room in my December 2020 Calendar Class if you would like to join us ~ it will be on Sunday afternoon, December 1, beginning at one in the Cat/Art Studio.  


This is one of the cards that we made at the CREEPY HALLOWEEN CLASS yesterday afternoon.  The stamp set is WONDERFULLY WICKED and you can find it on page 55 in the Holiday Catalog.  Two products in the catalog make this card especially spooky ~ the BASIC PATTERN DECORATIVE MASKS (page 35) and the MERCURY GLASS DESIGNER ACETATE (page 33).  The tree branches are sponged using one of the masks and Gorgeous Grape ink on Gorgeous Grape card stock.  'Wicked' is die cut out of the acetate.  Thee are four 12 x 12 sheets in a package of two different designs ~

Sunday afternoon, October 6, 2 - 4

We will make 6 Halloween cards, 2 each of 3 designs and a coffin treat box.  Class Fee:  $20 includes 1/2 package of each of the following - Monster Bash DSP, Monster Bash Enamel Shapes & the Coffin Treat Boxes.  Sign up by Sunday, September 15!  The ultimate in a creepy class!


This turned out to be a 'snow day' for me ~ at least that's what it feels like!  The weather canceled my morning class and so I feel like it is a 'catch up' day!  In celebration, I added a class to my schedule ~ a Creepy Halloween Class on Sunday afternoon, October 6.  The class fee is $20 and you will receive 1/2 package of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, the Monster Shapes (1/2 pkg.) & Coffin Treat Boxes (1/2 pkg.)  ~ below.  I know that not everyone appreciates Halloween so this is a 'come if you do' class!  You can find all these creepy products on page 54 in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday catalog and look below and PRINT OUT THE 2019 SCHEDULE  for classes in the Cat/Art Studio.  Oh, and you must sign up for the creepy class by SEPTEMBER 15!



Royal Peacock Class

Did you see this class in my newsletter this week?  I have scheduled this class for Saturday morning, August 17, which is just a little over a week away.  I had planned it as a product based class meaning that I would order the bundle (stamp set and the dies), the Rhinestones and the Designer Series Paper for you and it would be here when you arrived for the class.  But, guess what?  It is on BACKORDER!  That necessitates a CHANGE OF PLANS, doesn't it?   So, email me below if you are interested in the class ~ same day (10 AM) and we will be making the cards below.  I'll have to limit the class to six because I can't order more supplies at this point.  The class will be $20 for the three cards below ~
