Many Messages Class-To-Go

Whenever works best for you

When I first perused the January – June 2021 catalog, I immediately fell in love with the Many Messages Bundle. The greetings in this bundle are great for many occasions in daily life, and you can stamp one time and get 23 different greetings. I plan to keep an envelope with the extra diecuts after my projects so I can quickly grab a leftover greeting for a quick card. I also immediately thought of offering a Class-to-Go featuring this bundle because the variety of greetings are so versatile. Pairing these greetings with the gorgeous Flower & Field patterned paper is perfect for some quick, pretty cards. And that is how I designed the cards for this class. The paper is the star, and these cards go together quickly! Since the Coronavirus is still with us, and the case counts are actually getting worse, the Class-to-Go is still the best option. I can’t wait until we can get together in person, but in the interim some creativity is just what we all need for some de-stressing time. I hope that you’ll give it a try!

This class is based on the Many Messages bundle from the January – June catalog; you can check out the Bundle here. The class includes the Many Messages bundle, Basic Pearl Jewels and Flower & Field patterned paper along with prepared materials for four cards. I will cut the needed paper from the patterned paper for each card, but there will be LOADS leftover so that you can create a lot more with these gorgeous products. This bundle will be great for creating projects great for year-round occasions. If you live locally, I will work with you to arrange a contactless way to get you the kit. If you live further away, I can ship the kit and supplies to you via Priority Mail for an additional $8. Please note, I will need to cut the patterned paper into 6″x6″ square to fit into the mailing envelope.

Everything that you will need to create the cards will be included in the kits except adhesive, Dimensionals and Tuxedo Black ink (item 132708). Of course, you are totally free to use what you have and make cards of your own design. I did find it very handy to use the Stamparatus (item 146276) to stamp the large messages stamp to get crisp greetings. Please consider using Order Code V9VYQGXN when purchasing any supplies before February 19th. When you use an order code it helps offset some of my business costs for supplies used in classes and creating samples that I share on my blog.

Snowman Season Sampler Class-To-Go

Whenever works best for you

I have really enjoyed making various samplers over the last year, and I’m really excited to offer a seasonal themed class focused on Winter! This will be a wonderful decor element that you can display until you’re ready to move on to the next season or Holiday. For people like me who live in VT where Winter seems to last FOREVER, you can enjoy these cuties for a good long time. When you take this class you will make the sections and then assemble them onto the cardstock mat and base in any layout that you like – you can totally make it your own! And since this is a class-to-go you can work in short intervals to create the sections over time. No need to rush! You may already have this stamp set from my Christmas in July class; this is an opportunity to pull it out for some winter-themed fun.

Everything that you will need to create the sampler will be included in the kits except adhesive, mini glue dots, Dimensionals, coloring media (I used Stampin Blends) and ink. I used Night of Navy ink (item 147110) for the project. For this class I’m offering two options because several of you have the stamp set from the Christmas in July class I offered several months ago. Of course, you are totally free to use what you have and create a sampler of your own design. When you sign up please let me know the option you want, and I will email you the list of the Stampin Blends colors that I used so you can check your supplies. Please consider using Host Code 36BBBKYJ when purchasing any supplies before January 20th. When you use a host code it helps offset some of my business costs for supplies used in classes and creating samples that I share on my blog.

Here are the details for the event:

  • RSVP Date – January 20th
  • Location – in your own home
  • Class includes:
    • Option A: Blue Adhesive-backed gems and Subtles 12″ x 12″ cardstock
    • Option B: the items in Option A + the Snowman Season stamp set which you can use for future crafting projects
  • Price – Option A – $25, Option B – $45 (paid in advance)
  • If you live locally, I will work with you to arrange a contactless way to get you the kit. If you live further away, I can ship the kit and supplies to you via Priority Mail for an additional $15.

NOTE: This class does NOT include the 9″ x 9″ shadowbox frame that you see in the picture. I purchased mine at the IKEA store in New Haven, CT; the name of it is “Ribba” and you can also purchase it online. I have also found various color options available at the Michael’s Store in the Staples plaza on Williston Rd.
