Did you make a New Years resolution to be more creative and to find time for hobbies you love in 2018?
Keen to learn something new or have some 'me time' this year?
Perhaps a card class is for you. I hold classes at my house in Avondale Heights, in Melbourne's west. All materials and tools are supplied. Classes are suitable for beginners and enjoyable for more experienced papercrafters. Everyone is welcome and we have a friendly, relaxed environment for creating. Maximum of 8 per class.
My 2018 card classes are kicking off and I've got dates and details for January - March.
January Special Project Class
Class Fee: $50 (includes kit)
This month I've got a special project class for you. We'll be making the Perennial Birthday Project Kit.
The kit includes components for making 16 birthday cards, 4 each of 4 designs, plus the lovely box to store them in. Keep organised by recording birthdays on the tabbed dividers for month-at-a-glance reminders.
Each person will have a kit and I'll have the coordinating stamp set and inks at class for you to complete the stamped sections. Then we can assemble our cards at our leisure at class (or complete the assembly at home if we get chatting over a cuppa.)
Class fee is $50 and bookings need to be finalised by January 15th so that I can order the kits in time for the class. Contact me to organise payment.
(Note: You can add other items in addition to your kit totalling $45 + to pick up at class so that you qualify for a free Saleabration choice if you'd like. Let me know when you make your booking if you'd like to take up this offer.)
Thursday January 25th: 10.30am - 12.30 (Regulars - note the slightly later start time for this one.)
Thursday January 25th: 7.30pm - 9.30
Places are limited to a maximum of 8 per class. Phone/email to book your place and organise payment. Bookings must be finalised by Jan 15th.
Here's a closer look at the month dividers.
I love this box for keeping organised with birthdays. You could have a productive day making cards ahead of time and addressing the envelopes. Just pop them behind the divider and post as per your calendar. I've been particularly tardy and forgetful last year with birthdays so looking forward to putting my kit together. It includes materials for 16 cards to help you with your card stash.
Live further afield or can't make a class? You can make this one at home. There's a coordinating stamp set for the kit or you may be able to substitute in greetings from your stash.
Here's a tips and tricks video on this kit.
TECHNIQUE CLASSES: February and March 2018
Class fee: $25
We've got something new this year - well not new if you've been coming to class for a LONG time but new to everyone else.
We're going to be putting together a technique booklet at classes this year. Each month we'll have a new stamping technique. I'll give you a little printed instruction sheet to paste into your book, and we'll make a sample to paste in beside it. BYO blank book - our instruction sheet and samples will be approx 10cm square if you're out and about and find a blank book that'd be suitable. Over time we'll build up a lovely resource with samples of a range of techniques.
We'll make a card showcasing our technique of the month, plus some other cards as well featuring other products.
Here's some dates if you're wanting to get your 2018 calendar all organised. I'm still playing with techniques to find my favourites so will have details on that later. We always have something snazzy to make though.
Class fee is $25 and includes all materials. We'll usually be making 3 cards with envelopes plus our technique sample.
Wednesday 14th Feb: 7.30pm - 9.30
(Don't forget this is Valentine's Day if you've got a romantic evening planned! My hubby is away then so no candlelit dinners here - wink.)

I hope your resolutions are off to a great start. I was a bit slow getting moving again this year but my new fitness tracker has gotten me motivated to get that step count up. And back into some scrapbooking too after a year of not making time for it. Looking through my 2017 photos and picking some favourites from each month for some quick layouts.
Wishing you a terrific start to whatever plans you have for your year. I'm a big fan of fresh starts - whether that's January 1st, 11th or just anytime you choose.
