Classes

Welcome all!
This June is a busy month for me. I am hoping to host my very first classes AND that they will be successful.
My first of the two is slated for this Saturday and I had the brainstorm to do a mother and kiddo Father's Day workshop. I wanted to do one back in mother's day- but I didn't have enough time to order the materials. (my shipping takes about a week- still pretty good considering I live in Northern Alberta and it's coming from Utah I think!)
We'll be making this:


materials
* Best Dad Ever Stamp Set
* Fox and Friends Stamp Set
* Whisper White 1/4 inch ribbon
Colors:
* Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip
*Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake

So I tried my hand again at making Maria's Treat Box found under Resources at www.splitcoaststampers.com website. It fits quite a bit of home made Bits and Bites in there! I thought each 'mom' can make 2 A2 sized cards, and then each 'kiddo' can make 2 mini cards- like moms, but quicker and less elaborate (as children have such small attention spans sometimes (especially when it comes to cleaning their rooms! lol))

The next class I am doing is the very next week and I am whipping up these little cuties for teacher's thank yous. In Canada (as it seems that Americans are done late May/early June) we keep 'em in school until the end of July-ish. So this is perfect for last minute teachers gifts- and has the added benefit of being homemade (cuz, who doesn't love little homemade stationary sets?)


materials:
* sticky tape
* scalloped edge border punch
* Pawsitivly Prints II (retiring soon! :(
* Builder Wheel- For Teacher, School Colors, Elementary Alphabet (these are SO CUTE!!)
* Swirls and Curls verses (Hostess benefits level 1 set- Summer Mini 2011)

Colors:
* So Saffron, Tempting Turquois, Poppy Parade

So I made a mini magazine holder (details on www.inkingidaho.blogspot.com ) and added 4 3x4 mini cards and a 3x3 post it note holder. The ones I made for my daughter's kindergarten teacher's were a BIG hit!

So wish me luck on my classes! I hope I get a turnout AND new customers ;) I made flyers to put up around town (I am the ONLY demo in my tiny town- WOOT!) and stapled some business cards on them- hopefully that helps too!

That's it for me- have an awesome night,
