New Catalog Kickoff

The exciting brand new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is coming!  It is a beautiful catalog packed with lots of new products.  I’m hosting a catalog kickoff event on Sunday, June 3rd at my studio in my home.  If you are local to me I hope to see you there – the details are below.

Card Maker’s Class

Come join me for my monthly Card Maker’s Class on the last Friday of the month.  For May it will be on Friday, May 25th.  There are two class sessions – one at 10 am and one at 7 pm.  Both held in my studio at my house in Woodstock, Georgia. 

Each month you get an assortment of different cards to choose from allowing you to make what you need.  There are typically 10-12 different choices of cards and many of those can be for various occasions – you just change the sentiment.  Others may be specific – for example in the samples above the card with the 2018 is designed and meant for a graduation card.  While the other two cards could be birthday or thank you cards by changing the sentiments.  Many stamp sets have various greetings and if needed we can pull something from a different box. 

This monthly class is perfect for all levels of stampers from the brand new to the advanced.  Everyone works at their own pace.  I can spend more time helping those that need guidance while a more experienced stamper works on their own.  Each card will be set up inside it’s own box – with all the supplies and prepared pieces inside.  You select the box you want to work from and then take it to your table to complete.  Then return the box and choose another. 

Plan ahead for the next month by bringing a list of what you need for the upcoming month and make those cards all in one sitting.  The class fee includes your choice of six cards but if you have time you can make additional cards priced by the card.  If you are local I’d love for you to join me for class this month or in the near future.  Visit my calendar of events to see the schedule and RSVP.

Cocktails & Card Making


I started a new class a couple of months ago called Cocktails & Card Making.  It’s held at the Tavern at Towne Lake – which is in the front of my neighborhood.  It’s a place for friends to gather for a drink and some food and while you are there you can join me for some creative time.  I’d love to have you come to my class.

Each month we will be making hand-made cards.  There is no experience necessary and all supplies are provided.  Grab a friend for a girls night out and join us.  This month we are making some fun colorful celebrate & birthday cards.  These will be perfect for the summer months to use for birthdays or end of school celebrations or anything else that might pop up. 

Here is a peek at the past two classes.  The girls worked on 5 different cards each month in March and April. 

Plan to join me this week on Wednesday, May 16th at the Tavern at Towne Lake.  We will start stamping at 7 pm.  Come early to get food and cocktails from the Tavern.

It seems that if you get my blog updates by email the first one for this new blog that went out yesterday included a whole bunch of posts.  All my posts from my old blog were moved over.  Sorry that it looked weird.  Hopefully today its just this new post.
