February Classes

A little advance notice of our planned February classes:

Blendabilities Class

SATURDAY 14 FEBRUARY 2015

11AM – 1PM

Our February technique class features Blendabilities. We’ll not only learn how to blend and shade with them but also cover two other ways to use them.

Then we’ll apply the techniques to make two bright and beautiful cards.

Blendabilities class

Location: St Saviour’s Church Hall, Mortomley Lane, High Green, Sheffield

The £35 class fee includes nearly £30 of products including:

  • 2 sets of Blendabilities (Melon Mambo, Old Olive);
  • Memento Black inkpad;
  • 10 sheets Whisper White cardstock;

You’ll also receive:

  • a colour chart that we’ll complete on the day;
  • tips for using Blendabilities;
  • all additional materials needed to make the cards;
  • face-to-face instruction on the day;
  • refreshments.

If you already have the products we will use in class, then you may substitute other products of equal or lesser value (eg. select from the new Blendabilities colours) at the point of booking. You will then need to bring the Old Olive and Melon Mambo Blendies and Memento ink pad with you to the class.

Class fees must be received by Thursday 5 February to secure a place (to allow sufficient time to order your kit). If  an emergency prevents you from attending the event after booking, then your class materials will be posted to you.

Bookings for this class have now closed.

* Please note that class purchase does not count towards Sale-a-bration order qualification.

February Card Class

We’ve updated our classes recently to make them more accessible to all levels of crafter and to make them a little more relaxed – since so many people come along as much for the social side, as for the crafting. For those who like the tricky stuff, we still have Technique classes.

Our monthly Card Class slot gives you chance to make 6 cards. We feature three different stamp sets and we’ll have a simple design and a slightly stepped up design for each.

Come join our February Card Class. We’ll be using:

  • Kinda Eclectic
  • Four Feathers
  • Crazy About You

or

Date and time: SATURDAY 14 FEBRUARY 2015, 1.30PM – 3.30PM

  • all materials needed to make the cards, along with envelopes;
  • face-to-face instruction on the day;
  • refreshments.

Bring a New Friend* with you for some added fun, and you will BOTH get a free goodie bag.

Workshops and Private Classes

Date and time to suit you (2 hours)

At your home or venue of your choice.

workshop2

At a traditional workshop, I show you a few different stamping techniques/projects (usually 3) and some of the latest Stampin’ Up! products. Everyone attending the workshop gets to make a fun stamping project that they get to take home! I supply all materials. You and your friends place your orders at the workshop and you can receive benefits and EARN HOSTESS £s to spend on YOU!

With a Private Class, each attendee pays a flat fee to make a select number of cards / projects which they take home.  There is no hard sales push although, if there are any sales, you, as the hostess would still receive the benefits.  Basically, the class fee pays for the materials and my time.

Projects can be tailored to suit your group.

Book a date with me in January for your workshop/party/private class and I’ll send you copies of the Sale-a-bration brochure and the Spring/Summer catalogue, so that your can start making your wish list. Be one of the first five to book with me and you’ll get an extra booking reward as a special thank you from me.

SATURDAY 13 December 2014, 12.15PM – 1.15PM

Do you have pictures sitting on your computer, on your phone, or piled in boxes? Are you tired of traditional scrapbooking, or don’t have the time to do it?

projectlife

I have fallen in love with a new system called Project Life that takes the time, money and stress out of memory keeping! It’s all about living your life, and documenting it for your family in a quick, simple, easy and affordable way!

It takes much less time and effort than traditional scrapbooking, and focuses more on living your life and preserving your priceless memories for your children and grandchildren. You don’t need any crafting ability, just the desire to preserve your precious memories for your family! 

I know we’re all busy, and have so much taking up our time, but I would LOVE for you to join me in having some fun together, along with learning about something that is good for your family too!

Come along for FREE and see first hand what I’m talking about, and learn a fun, easy system to capture your family’s memories forever! Plus you’ll make a cute project to take home with you!

Location: St Saviour’s Church Hall, Mortomley Lane, High Green, Sheffield

There’s no charge for this introductory event but I do need to know who is coming so that I know how many make and take projects to have ready. Please RSVP by emailing me at sarastamper123@gmail.com or text me at 0775 1133886.
