Happy New Year!!! + New Classes!

Happy 2009 everyone! Hope this year will be a good one for all!

I'm starting my new year with creativity!

A new list of classes follows (with a photo of the first of this year's projects coming up) that I think you will love. I'm also trying to catch up on a few of the great ideas I had before the holidays but never had time to complete. This is typically my "get organized" part of winter and I love it but only as far as my studio is concerned - I don't even want to think about other areas of the house that could use an organizational hand! Who wants to clean out closets when there are lovely things to be made!?

So ... this year's class schedule ...

Class #1 - Winter Memories Mini Book
This little 6x6" book can pack in a lot of winter moments you wish to remember. It is filled with snowy blue and white papers, snowflakes and gemstones, sequins and brads, is divided by lovely tabbed snowflake transparency pages and adorned with a painted chipboard snowflake and ribbons on the cover. A warm way to remember your chilly winter fun.

Class Fee: $25

Monday, January 26 at 6:30pm at St. John Lutheran Church
Tuesday, January 27 at 9:00am at my house

Call me or email me to register.

Class #2 - "Flowering" Photo Box
You won't want to miss this unique class. This is a three-layered box within a box within a box. Each box opens up like flower petals to reveal the photos and journaling you put inside on each flap. The design starts with a black background and is adorned with elegant black and white papers. Accented with colorful ribbon and embellishments, just add your own photos and this will be a treasure box no one will believe you made yourself. Photo coming soon.

Class Fee: $35

Class #3 - Beauty of the Garden Book
What better way to usher in the spring than with a book about flowers! This 6x12" book is intended to show off your beautiful garden photos, whether you are the gardener or simply the admirer. It is created with bright colorful papers, gorgeous ribbons, embellishments, and decorative transparency dividers. Constructed page flaps fold out to reveal extra photos or journaling. An envelope page at the back allows for even more hidden treasures. This could be your own keepsake or be made as a beautiful gift for a gardening friend.

Class Fee: $40

Class #4 - Simple Scrapbooking and Terrific Techniques

Seems a little backward perhaps to have our final class cover some simple techniques and scrapbooking tips to use. However, think of it as your springboard to a creative summer. In this class we will complete a few 2-page layouts using some extra special scrapbook techniques and touches that will jazz up your pages. Come prepared to paint, sew, stitch by hand, stamp, emboss, sand, stencil, and who knows what else. You'll be amazed how a few extras can totally change the look of your layout. This class is still in the planning phase. More on this one to come.

Class Fee: TBD

Monday, April 27 at 6:30pm at St. John Lutheran Church

OK - I've got my work cut out for me in the creative realm and I can't wait to dive in. Now if I could just find someone to clean those closets, I'd be all set.

Happy New Year! Hope to see you soon!
