Paper Bag Mini Albums Class Sat. 10/22 at 12:00 am at Hobby Lobby in Columbia

A change to the mini albums class: I am offering it on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 12:00 to 4:00 all in one session for $25 instead of two sessions for $25 each. You will still assemble the album, make a charm, and cut the tags and journaling folders as before but we won't take a lunch break in the middle.

Materials you need to bring with you are your own decorative scrapbook paper and matching cardstock colors, two sided adhesive tape 1/2 inch, a roll on tape adhesive, scissors, paper trimmer, fine tip glue pen, and ribbon to match your scrapbook paper (we will use the ribbon to close the album, but this is not required). Any width of ribbon will do.

I will provide the jewelry to make the charms, the chipboard covers, the paperbags, some embellishments, vellum, punches, stamps/ink, and some journaling paper but not all. I will also bring in the Grand Calibur and spellbinder dies, the Cuttlebug and dies for the tags, and scoring boards to make the photo flaps with.

Please email me at if you have any questions. Registration deadline for this class is Oct. 20 so that I have time to shop for materials.

Stamping Class Monday night 9/26 at 5:30pm

What better way to control the colors you want on your stamped image than to use markers on your stamp?! In this class you will learn all the techniques needed to stamp the perfect image using Memento markers on your stamp and a secret along with that which will make your stamped image sparkle, but not the entire background, just the stamped image.
All materials provided except you bring a few pieces of old newspaper to cover our work area, your roller adhesive to make the cards, scissors and a paper trimmer if you have one. The class will start right at 5:30pm so you will have time to make as many cards as you like. I have Holiday themed stamps to use or floral ones and all the Memento markers. The cost of the class is $25. Cash preferred. We meet at the Hobby Lobby in Columbia off Snowden River Parkway in the BJ's shopping center. Thank you.

McGill Paper Blossom Tool Kit -- Now at Hobby Lobby

With this tool kit, you can turn a flat punched out paper flower into a 3D paper flower. The set contains 3 stylus tools with sizes that are
1mm/5mm, 2mm/6mm & 3mm/8mm

I don't know anywhere else that you can find such a large stylus and get all 3 plus tweezers for $9.00 with your coupon. You can find this at Hobby Lobby stores now. I highly recommend it as it will change your papercrafting life.

Spellbinders Label 6 card class -- 10/31 at 6:00pm and 11/4 at 10am, $20

This card is all about hand-made; everything on the card is made from scratch -- the flowers, the butterflies, and the card itself. You will learn how to cut the window with the Spellbinders label 6 die, then embellish it with Paper Studio daisy punches (medium and small), and the EK success mini flower punch,and the EK mini butterfly punches. It is a very easy card to make and so much fun making the flowers when you have the right embossing tools. I recommend the McGill Paper Flowers stylus set that I emailed about earlier. It makes making these flowers 3 dimensional so easy. Please let me know if you are interested in taking this class.
