Graphic 45 Proper Gentlemen Cards
Change in Scheduled Classes

New Classes Coming Up!

Cover Hi friends.  Sorry it’s been a while since I blogged, but it’s been a busy couple of weeks.  We had a huge turnout for the Stitched with Love class and it took a week to put together the set-ups for the class.  If you missed this very popular and fun class, you can attend the encore presentation on Saturday, June 26 from 10am to 1pm.  In the class we make a presentation folder (you won’t believe how easy it is once you know the secret!!) and three cards that fit inside.   Please sign up early!




Splendid-Adventure This weekend, Saturday, June 5, we have two great classes.  Just in time for the upcoming father’s day, our morning class will feature four cards made with the new Graphic 45 Proper Gentlemen line of papers, tags and borders.  I made 8 cards with this paper – and had many more ideas!  It is always good to have some good “guy” cards on hand so why not come and make a few?  Let me show you more of the samples I made.

Book-and-Tin Saturday afternoon (June 5) we will make a project using another line of Graphic 45 paper called Botanicabella.  We will decorate a small ATC (Artist Trading Card) size tin box then fill it with an ATC-size accordion book.  The papers are stunning and the whole project is very vintage and very beautiful.  For more information on these classes, please visit our website at  To register, just give me a call at 833-9500.


Here’s an important note:  Saturday, June 12 there will be no classes.  A dear friend’s husband died suddenly and the memorial service is that day.  The store will be open and Jeri will be teaching a FREE make and take.  So come in and shop and make a cute project.  I will have more details on the make and take in a few days!

Dogwood June 19 (10am) Kathi Anderson will be teaching a metal class.  You will learn how to stamp on pewter then work it with metal-working tools.  Kathi is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor so if you want to expand how you use your stamps register for that class now!







Canvas-Flowers-Dahlia Stamping-on-canvas June 19 (2pm) I will teach a workshop with some of Claudine Helmuth’s (Ranger) new products including sticky back canvas, acrylic paints and multi mediums.  You will learn how to paint and die cut the canvas as well as how to transfer decorative papers to the canvas.  I will also explain a lot of other techniques that you can use with these products.  I know you will love the canvas once you start working with it!
