NEW: Monthly Class Offerings (including Stamp Club!)

I've been working behind the scenes (and through my kitty's roller coastering health issues) to come up with a plan for offering classes that will be much more predictable and (I hope) easier to understand. As there is interest, I am happy to add more classes, or help you Host your own Workshop/Party. Just email me and I'll see what I can do for you!

With my new class offerings, there's something for everyone, whether you can come craft at my local Events, or you want to participate from home! I am planning to create PDFs with instructions, which link to walkthrough videos, and other resources and ideas relevant to each class, and these will go on sale as Digital ONLY Class Kits after the physical class is held. Each participant of a physical class will also get a complimentary copy of the Digital version of their class. For some events, Class Kits to Go will be offered, which will include consumable supplies sent via USPS, as well as email delivery of the Digital instructions/resources.

Starting in September, I am generally scheduling 4 events per month, on Fridays and Saturdays, with start times at 12:30pm. All of these events will be held at my home. Here's how that will typically look...

FIRST Friday/Saturday of the Month: Workshop or Open House
SECOND Friday/Saturday of the Month: Card Class
THIRD Friday/Saturday of the Month: Product-Based Class
FOURTH Friday/Saturday of the Month: Stamp Club Session

Workshop or Open House
The first event of any given month will generally be a Workshop, unless a new catalog or special product/line is coming out, in which case the event will be an Open House. A Workshop will include a demonstration of 3-4 projects, and one or two Make & Takes. A limited number of Workshop Class Kits to Go will be available for order through the weekend of each Workshop as a pre-order item, and mailed out after I receive delivery of the supply products from Stampin' Up!. Digital ONLY Class instructions/references will be available for sale online after the event is held, and a complimentary copy will be emailed to those who have purchased a Class Kit to Go. An Open House will be a display of samples and products from the upcoming catalog(s), with one or two hands-on projects available. (There are no Class Kits to Go or Digital ONLY Class Kits available for an Open House...it is a physical attendance based event only.) Both these event types are FREE but I do require an RSVP through my Customer Events Page no less than 24 hours in advance, to reserve your project supplies.

Card Class
The second event of any given month will generally be a Card Class. You will make 8 cards (2 each of 4 designs), and your fee includes an envelope for each card. This class fee is set at a flat $20. RSVP through registration (with payment) on my Customer Events Page no less than 24 hours in advance, to reserve your project supplies. A limited number of Card Class Kits to Go will be available for order through the weekend of each class as a pre-order item, and mailed out after Stampin' Up! supplies are delivered to me. Card Class Digital ONLY instructions/references will be available for sale Online after the event is held, and a complimentary copy will be emailed to those who paid for the in-person class or purchased a Class Kit to Go.

Product-Based Class
The third event of any given month will generally be a Product-Based Class. For this class type, you will need to order several items from my ONLINE STORE in time for them to be delivered to you--then you bring those items to enjoy a class I've created around them. RSVP through registration (with payment of a $6 supply fee) on my Customer Events Page no less than 24 hours in advance, to reserve your project supplies. The supply fee is to help cover the cost of items used for the projects, that you didn't buy and bring to class. Although the class for every product or group of products will look a little bit different, I envision this class content to be around 10-12 cards, or perhaps a couple fewer cards at times when a 3D projects are planned. Digital ONLY Classes will be offered for sale after the physical event, and a complimentary copy will be emailed to class registrants after the physical class is held. NO Class Kit to Go is available for this class type.

Stamp Club Session (more details on THIS POST)
The fourth event of any given month will generally be a Stamp Club Session. Members (and Non-Member Guests) of my Monthly Stamp Club may opt to join me during this event, to get a Technique sheet including a Try-It practice piece, and 2-3 simple projects. Members will pay a nominal supply fee of $3, Non-Member Guests may commit to a minimum $30 purchase towards that month's Club sales and make the projects for the same $3 supply fee. (ONLINE Members and Non-Member Guests alike can get a Class Kit to Go for the nominal $3 fee, if they purchase $30 towards that month's Club sales...and they will get not only the consumable supplies for the projects in the mail, but also a complimentary copy of the Digital ONLY version of the class via email.) Non-Member Guests who wish to attend the physical class but do not wish to make a minimum $30 purchase, may register for the in-person Club Session for a fee of $15 (payable to Demonstrator, not applied toward Club sales), however, NO Class Kits to Go will be available without a $30 minimum purchase.  

TIP: it's super easy to double-dip each month with the Product-Based Class and the Stamp Club Session...simply apply that month's Stamp Club Host Code to your Product-Based Class purchase, and you can get BOTH the Product-Based Class and the Stamp Club Session for the nominal supply fees of only $12 total!!!
