Do you love the idea of making your holiday cards during the year but find it hard to get started off-season? Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club is a great solution, but it fills up quickly, and what if you can’t make it to the store one Friday night per month? Here’s a brand new alternative (because Christmas Card Club WILL be back in February!) that runs 100% on your schedule.
It’s a pre-packaged kit we’ve called Holiday Jumpstart(cute name, right?) that includes everything you need (except ink and adhesive) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Jingle All the Way” because it’s built around Creative Expressions’ die of the same name. To illustrate, Lauren made five sample cards using five different colorways, and she’s included the recipes for those in the kit, but you can make them all the same OR rock your own favorite shades. For that matter, this design will work with ANY combination of blendable dye or hybrid inks you love; it could even be made using a single shade of ink or watercolor.
Join Shari For this lovely holiday class where you will create a 4 card set and matching box. The box is sized to hold A2 cards, but would also be perfect for that special present… or give the box and cards as a gift set! The class features the ever popular create-in-quads stencils from Taylored Expressions. The lovely sentiment set is from Taylored Expressions as well. Please bring your basic class kit as well as a Wendy Vecchi Staytion, if you have one. (We all highly endorse this wonderful tool when working with stencils!)
Join Elisabeth for a harvest of fall-inspired cards featuring stamps from Taylored Expressions, Lawn Fawn and Stampendous with a bounty of techniques: stencils, ink blending, heat embossing, Copic Marker coloring and even watercoloring with the new Distress watercolor pencils!

Dates available are Sunday, June 5th, from 11am to 2pm; or Saturday, June 25th, from 12 to 3pm. Cost is $32. Please email email@example.com to reserve your spot.
