Overdue Update

Just wanted to let you all know I am working on your instructions for you flowers right now. Also, this week we'll be doing vintage cards at class. The samples are up at "The Stamping Room"

May 26th - asian inspiration
June 2 nd - interactive cards
June 9 th - I've lost my marbles!
June 16th - Watercolors
June 23rd - more is more, or less
June 30th - fun stuff to do with markers

Also, Donna and I are in the works (she just doesn't know it yet) of planning a huge scrapbook yard sale. This will be a time for all of us to grab a table and have a yard sale down at the store and get rid of the stuff we are not using. I'll be advertising this all over kijiji, facebook, and the advertiser plus multipe telephone poles around the valley! We'll have a barbecue and some cool beverages (or hot if it's chilly lol) and have a great time! I have a date in mind but need to confirm it with Donna before I post it.

I'll also be launching my card kits by mail next month so keep checking back for details on that!

Opinions wanted

Hi friends...if you did not get my email then I must  not have you on my list. But I sent an email a few moments ago asking for your opinions in what type of classes you would like. I am busy storming up new ideas for the rest of the year but would really like to know what you want. So if there is a special technique you would like to learn or project you would like to do, please email me at and let me know.

Also, I am planning a cricut workshop with a light lunch. I'll be teaching you how to get the best use of your cricut and sharing with you the benefits of and how to use the design studio software. I will have to rent a hall for this so I would appreciate knowing if this is something you would like to attend.

Thanks again for all of your support and if you haven't been to one of my classes yet, you should come and check out all the fun we have.

I will also be sending out a card kit of the month starting in June, so keep checking my blog for information on that!

Hugs, Nancy

Japanese paper in Canning!

Shirley and I just ran down to the Artcan gallery. Ron had called me last night to let me know he just got a line of Japanese papers in. they come in scrap packs and are packed full of odds and ends of beautiful Japanese papers! We quickly ran back to Shirleys and opened them all up to see our treasures haha.. The packs are all basically the same inside so don't buy 3 (Like I did) thinking you will get all different papers. There are just different papers on the outside to make it look like different packs. For the $14.00 I paid for each, they are well worth it. These are stunning papers and great for cardmakers! Ron has them put away in a drawer so tell him I sent you down to see them!

Happy New Year

Hi everyone, I wanted to wish you all a very happy New Year. I have been very busy over the holidays working on ideas and plans for this years classes. I hope to get the list posted in the next week or so. In the meantime, I'd like to share the first class with you. This class will be held on Wed Jan 6th & 10th. The 6th has already been filled due to the email I sent out, but there is still room on the 10th from 1-4. Please let me know by the 6th if you want to attend the class on the 10th so I can cut accordingly. This sweet little desk calendar has 4 drawers, one on each side and an easel card on top. The calendar is a tear away for each month. The cost of this class is only $15.00 and all supplies are included. The only thing I ask you to bring is your own adhesive. Please email me at to register for this class.
