Guest Teacher - Cherri Robb

We are so excited to welcome Cherri Robb to Rocky Mountain Memories as a guest teacher Saturday, November 13.  I have taken classes from Cherri and her excellence as a teacher is only excelled by the beauty of her art.  Cherri is a collage artist who will be teaching principles in collage technique as we complete collage card projects.  The morning class will include the two cards below.  The cards will feature Graphic 45 papers and Tim Holtz embellishments and dies.

You can see the cards close up at the shop.  The morning class will be from 9 am to 11:30 and the afternoon class runs from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m.  We are DONE with 3 hour parking, so no need to worry about parking your car all day for both classes.  Let us know when you sign up and you can purchase a box lunch from DeLeo's Deli, just a couple of doors down from the shop.  Choose from turkey, roast beef or ham, for $5 (BARGAIN!!).  RMM will provide chips & drinks.  We need to know by the Friday before if you'll want a box lunch and plan to pay cash separately for your sandwich.
The morning and afternoon classes will complete two projects each; one card can be used as a greeting card, birthday card or other purpose.  
The other is a Christmas card.  Cherri is going to show us how to use the Christmas interpretation to create multiple copies for your Christmas card list this year.

Each class is $27.  This includes all materials except for your adhesives and assumes you bring a Basic Kit.  (Basic Kit described on the RMM Event Calendar.)  Space is limited, so don't delay in signing up!!  A complete RMM Event Calendar is coming in your email boxes on Monday, October 18 and will include class materials for both of these workshops.  If you're not on our email list, send me a note at and I'll put you on our list.

Hope to see you on November 13!!

Terrible Picture, Beautiful Dies!!

Just this morning got these awesome Tim Holtz dies.  Thank you, Mr. Holtz.
Very cool bare tree.  Works for Halloween, for snowy trees, for spring trees and green trees.  Add your own leaves & blooms.
On the Fence die.  I love this one.  Its great with my nature, botanical obsession.
Gardens & birds need a fence, do they not?  Yes, they do.

Yummy.  Come see.

New class at Rocky Mountain Memories!!

Fall classes are happening now at Rocky Mountain Memories!  These are three cards we will make from a single piece of 7 Gypsies "Conservatory" paper and embellishments.  Here are the cards individually:
Love this pretty one.  The grahic images on the paper are just magically positioned for a balanced collage background.

"Cross Your Heart and Fly" is an added B Line stamp.

Hello Friend.  Who would love to get this one for a birthday, an anniversary, a remembrance or any occasion?

No image, just words.  But lovely ones.  This stamp makes a really nice card.  And you can't go wrong with G45 papers.  Ever.

A Tuscan village scene you'll color and blend with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  Gorgeous note card.  We'll just do one of these because this card is a little more time consuming, but you'll learn how.  Lotso fun!

The class is $25, all materials included, for a total of 6 cards & envelopes.  Please bring your own double sided adhesive, bone folder, scissors, ruler; if you have colored pencils, its helpful for you to bring those, but not required.  Call the store to sign up 970-577-1415 or email me at  Class sizes are limited, so don't wait to sign up!

Friday. October 8 at 12:30 p.m.
Wednesday, October 13 at 9 a.m.

Hope to see you there!

Elk Jam on the way to the Shop!!

This big guy has lots of girlfriends.  Jerk.
 Crossing the road at their leisure.  No worries.  We'll wait.  Don't hurry on our account.

More girlfriends.
I didn't have to wait too long.  This time of year is so cool, the elk really put on a show.  And this year, the weather has been GREAT.  Really nice for elk viewing.
