2013 Calendar Layout Class
This Monthly Layout Class will add some wonderful pages to an annual calendar for the 2013 year.  It will be an excellent gift idea for that someone special at Christmas in preparation for the following year, and also include valuable photo memories memories.  An extra treat for this class is that our Creative Team will be contributing several months of beautiful designs to the Calendar throughout the year.

The Stash Box is just that - somewhere to stash your bits and pieces, your photos, your special little adornments, or anything else on the top of your workspace that needs keeping safe.  For this Off The Page project you'll need to call into the store to check out the sample to see it for yourself.

The Flower Tech classes run over the course of 4 weeks have still proved to be very popular.  With beautifully crafted cards adorned with your own handmade flowers, each class will take you to a new technique, and some very creative flowers.   We will be running these Classes again, and   will also include the option of doing the Advanced Flower Tech Classes at the completion.

For those who just completed the Flower Tech Classes, you will be able to attend the Advanced classes shortly.  These gorgeous new handmade flowers will take a little more work, but as part of the Advanced Classes they will be well worth it.

The Copic Club
will attend their last Class this month, having completed a once a month class over 4 months with Sally.  I'm sure the instructor will be eager to see "more homework", and give the girls enough new techniques to thoroughly enjoy their last class. 

Each class over the duration of the 4 months includes a kit and written instructions, as well as hands on demo's.  By the time the Copic Club has finished it's course, each member will have a good supply of Copic Markers, and be able to confidently create cards or pages using all their new techniques.  Our aim is for you to feel confident in using all the specific colouring techniques, under the proper hands on instruction.

We also offer a discount on class products and tools purchased at the classes.  This is a great incentive to increase your supply of tools and products.

We will be scheduling a couple of new classes shortly, and I will unload them to the listing once we have all the requirements.  Look for these shortly:
