Learn "Card Making Techniques"...

Here is a card, showing my "Woven Ribbon Technique"...which I taught at my October stamping Class.   My "Classes" are a different format than my "Card Buffets".  (See my October 1st "Buffets" post below.)

At my "Class" sessions, I teach fun "Card Making Techniques" ...and each person learns the step-by-step process of how to actually do the technique...all while they make their own card.

This is one of the cards we made in class, which used both the dry and heat embossing techniques.  My photo does not show the shiny ornament very well, but it actually looks like a delicate, old-fashioned, glass ornament.

Seats still available for my October "Card Buffet" ...

What is a Card Buffet?

You've probably attended buffets before…like Golden Corral…mainly because we can select from a “buffet menu” that contains a wide variety of items, where each person can choose what they want and how much of each item…plus everything is prepared and ready to eat when we arrive.  We enjoy a great ‘home style’ meal, with a wide variety of choices…and all for one basic price!
Buffets are especially great when we are limited in our time and energy…they save us from having to do the shopping, storing, prepping and all the clean-up afterwards!

Based on these concepts, I now offer a Card Buffet including "card menus".

o        Work at your own pace.

o        12 beautiful cards* to choose from on every “Buffet Menu”
o        Card Kits are in a shoebox of matching # and ready to assemble

o       All difficult or time consuming steps are pre completed this is for both 'first timers' as well as experienced.  

o       Cost is only $18 a person for 8 beautiful cards. (minimum)
o       You may make more than 8 cards (add’l cards only 2.25 ea.)
