Introducing Kimberly Archer

I am soooooooooooooo excited to post that Kimberly Archer is joining
the teaching staff at the store as well as the design team. I just can't tell you all how lucky I feel to have her joining us at the store.....

Kimberly is one SUPER talented gal and also a genuinely kind person.
Definately one of the most generous people I have met.

She has been shopping with us for a while but only recently did I discover her blog (which now is in my favorite links side bar) I have spent hours looking at all of her layouts This past week and also at the crop she brought in soooo many layouts and ideas to share that my mind went into overload. We now have several of her layouts throughout the store
and they are a great source of inspiration.

If you havent been in for a week or so you should stop by and take a peek. Things have really been changing and rearranging inside.

Here is a little sneak peak of what we have planned for late August thru September. We are still adding a few things but everyone has been checking to see what all new is coming in the way of classes so......
here's a peek :)

Saturday September 2nd 10:00am-12:00noon
Description of class: Creating with Transparencies

Descriptions and techniques for applying transparencies in many styles. We will have many samples to show different ways to use transparencies.

Everyone in this class we will make:
1 Pocket Block Card.
1 Greeting Card
1 Single Page layout

Other classes that will be on the late August and September calendar include:

Stretch Canvas Design
Flower Pounding (Layout)
Inking & Aging Techniques
Altered Christmas Calendar/Clipboard
Christmas Month Journal Book
Flower Pounding on Canvas
Doodling Class
and more are in the works

I hope to have all info finalized in the next few days and will be posting updates. We are planning on offering the classes on Tuesdays and Saturdays and in the early fall Sundays.

Any extra kits from each class will be available for sale to anyone who can not make the class. These may be picked up starting the day after the class.
I know many people like to purchase extra kits to make altered items as gifts and sometimes "life" just gets in the way and you can't attend a class
but would like to make the project.

All class kits will have:

A colored picture of the finished project
Detailed directions

The class samples will remain in the store at all times so if you would like to come in a take advantage of our FREE table time if you miss a pre-paid class then we will have the finished project for you to use as a guide.
