More Fun Things

Let's take a break from the new products (at least on the blog) to look at some of the other fun going on here at the store.

Saturday, we had two classes going on.

One side of the store had a fun holiday card class going on. Annette was the teacher in this class. The group made five great cards. Well actually, they were gifts within cards. Each card had something additional, like an ornament, or a spot for gift card or a spot for photos, making them more than just a card.

They chalked, stamped, sewed, glued, sanded and did a lot of other fun stuff to the papers!

On the other side of the store was a class making book covers out of grungeboard. Many had not ever worked with grungeboard (or so they wanted us to believe). They made some great covers and each one turned out different. The project was easy to individualize with colors and words. Carolyn was the teacher of this class. She brought this class back from a workshop she went to that was created and led by Tim Holtz.

As you can see, they used their hands and inked, stickled, sanded, bent and poked holes in the grungeboard. This one of those products that can be folded, stapled and otherwise manipulated--well actually, that is how you use it!

Here are a few of the book covers. See the great differences?

Makes you want to get your fingers inky doesn't it? Both of these classes are being held again. The holiday card class is Thursday November 12 at 10:30 am and is only $30.00. The Grungeboard class is being held again on Thursday November 19 at 6:30 in the evening and December 12 at 10:30 in the morning. Check out the Events Page of the website for other classes as well.
