Birds & Words

Sunday, June 21, 2009


I FINALLY have workshops planned for the summer. I'll post them here, but you can always check the website and can even sign up there! (You can also sign up by calling or coming to the store or by email; 970-577-1415 and I've planned a full schedule. Can we do it? Of course we can!!

This is where you'll see the "paper arts" element of the store. Card classes are included at least once a month. Other weeks are other kinds of paper arts projects that stand alone or teach projects that create embellishments for your cards and scrapbook pages.

We start next week with:

Coaster Mini Books
Thursday, June 25
Saturday, June 27
Monday, June 29
(All classes will be from 9 am to noon)
Make 2 mini-books with two different bindings; one book will be embellished, the other will be for you to finish at home. BRING: Scissors, bone folder & glue stick (I recommend UHU). I'll have a bone folder & scissors to share if you are here on vacation or don't have yours with you.

Birds & Words
Thursday, July 2
Monday, July 6
(All classes will be from 9 am to noon)
This one is mainly because I really like that phrase. :-) And also really like birds and really, really like words.
This is our traditional 3 designs, 3 cards & envelopes each. Designs using birds & text. Our options are wide open because there are so many choices for stamps & paper. I personally can't wait for this one! Because of July 4, I'm just doing two sesssion for this, so don't delay in signing up. I'll try to repeat this later for you Saturday only students.
BRING: Double stick adhesive & scissors.

Tag Booklet
Thursday, July 9
Saturday, July 11
Monday, July 13
(All classes will be from 9 am to noon)
Make 2 booklets that accomodate tags; the tags can be used for words, quotes, as a birthday greeting for a best friend, or someone you want to do something special for; you can make it a little memory book with pictures tucked inside. Sweet! BRING: Four empty toliet paper rolls, scissors, glue stick. Start saving those TP rolls now! I'll be saving them, too, but I don't promise to have extras for everyone, so do your best. If you have less than three, you can still do the project, just with fewer pages.

There are more workshops listed on the website, so check it out there. Remember, most parking downtown is 3 hours, so park behind the five & dime if you can.

Okay, that's it for now. I'll get pics of the Coaster Mini-books posted this afternoon. Yippee!!
