I am so glad spring has finally arrived. Hopefully, it will stay warm so we can enjoy it and all the flowers and blooming trees.
Well, we had a very successful open house in March. The cards we made were wonderful. Thanks to all those who made it possible and to those who attended.
We have been receiving new merchandise regularly. We have new embossing folders and dies from several companies. We have ordered the April Stamp of the Month board from Great Impressions. It should be arriving today. We also have received some new style peel off stickers.
This month we will be having our second Self-serve Open House. We will have card kits and other projects prepared. You come and choose the kits that you want to make. There will be a minimal fee for each kit. Be sure to bring your basic tool kit. I hope you will be able to join us.
We will also be featuring some handmade jewelry, decoupage, and lotions at this open house. Be sure to check this out.
If you need some Easter cards, Amanda will be teaching the Great Impressions Easter cards and I will be teaching 3 card ideas.
Amanda will also be teaching 3 cards using dry embossing techniques.
Jessica has a full schedule this month. If you have not made the stationery box or the album in a tin, you may want to sign up. You can choose your papers to suit your needs. Both make wonderful gifts for all occasions. We have some great papers for men, too.
She will be continuing with the G45 monthly books. We even scheduled a make-up book day in case you missed a book. I don't usually make books, but I have enjoyed making these. They are fairly simple and can be adapted to several uses.
Jessica's big project for the month is the shadowbox/book. We will be using the G45 Botanical Tea papers. The project will take two classes from 10-4. What a terrific gift for a friend or for Mother's Day! Stop by for more details.
I have rescheduled the iris folding class. This is an interesting technique that is very versatile.
I will also be teaching Stamping 101, the monthly Christmas card, and The Miracles of Spring book.
Be sure to sign up and prepay by the designated dates since we need to prepare the class materials. If you can't make the class, we can make a kit for you. However, we no longer make extra kits.
The Craft Yard Sale has been postponed. I felt that I needed to work out some kinks before we proceeded.
Take care and I hope to see you soon.
