Tonight I start the 1st of my series of September Card Classes. I opted to teach the classes here in my home and only have seats for 4 persons at a time in my craft room. Oh, I could teach only 2 classes a month at my sister's therapy room since it holds 12 persons at a time. But that means, (1) I have to pack up and cart everything to her house; (2) the class lacks the informal one to one hands on teaching I prefer; (3) and if I forget anything, there is a BIG PROBLEM!
So I opted to hold 6 small card classes and 2 small scrapbooking classes over the month of September. I chose to hold classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and 2 non-chemo Saturdays. That way everyone has an opportunity to attend class.
This month I am bringing back TECHNIQUE CARDS. Each stamper will get a package of 5 cards to make in class, one being a special technique of the month PLUS they will get a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card with a small sample and directions how to do the technique. This will allow them to put the samples cards on a ring or in a book, and create a technique album to refer to later on.
This month we are doing TRIPLE TIME STAMPING by Dawn Olchefske as our September Technique. I chose to use French Foliage as the stamp set for the technique.
We are also doing:
1. A male themed card with The Open Sea
2. A female themed card with Bordering on Romance
3. A children's themed card using Punch Art
4. A waterfall card using By the Seashore
I cannot wait to see some of my stamping friends. It has been so long since I have hugged their necks and them over for a visit! Have a great day,
