So Excited!

Hi everyone and welcome back!  I have BIG news to share with you today.  I've been chosen as a card designer for my local scrapbook store, The Scrap Shack.  I will be designing cards for them and teaching classes, how cool is that? I've been doing a happy dance ever since I found out :-)  As excited as I am, I'm also feeling a little intimidated as I've never taught classes before, but it's definitely an adventure I'm excited to embark upon.

So to kick off this new adventure, I wanted to give you a little peek at the first 3 cards I made for a "Back to School" card class that will be taught on August 20th. I tried for a variety in these cards, so one is especially for the younger children in your life, the other is for the more adult ones (high school/college) and the other is for your child to give his/her teacher. This class will be taught by our lead designer, Karen, as I had already planned vacation around that time. You will learn new stamping techniques, colouring and shading, try different card folds and how to use metal dies. All supplies can be purchased at the Scrap Shack.

If you are local, you need to stop by and see all the wonderful stock of crafty goodness available at the store. There is definitely something for everyone.  Also, they offer various classes, so take a look around and feel free to sign up for a class or two :-)

Well, crafty friends, now I have to get busy making the kits for the class :-)
I will be back tomorrow to share a card I made for Father's Day.

Your sneak peeks are amazing and will be SUCH a hit. I wish I was local so I could attend. :o) I'm so happy for you, my friend. You have a beautiful gift and I'm grateful you will soon be blessing even more people with it. :o)
