I am humming along here, enjoying the warm weather - even the rain and I'm so happy to hear the birds singing in the yard, singing so merrily happy it seems just to be home from their winter trip and busy building nests and laying eggs. I feel new creation all over right now and I've been creating a little as well the past couple of weeks. I'm getting excited too as I prepare for the wonderful event going on this weekend in Sault Ste. Marie. The "Stop, Shop and Learn" event put on by O.C. Scrapbookers n'More at the United Baptist Church on Malabar (just off Great Northern Road) on Saturday, June 4th. The doors open at 9am and the event will run until 4pm in the afternoon. During that time there will be demos running in the morning where you can rotate and learn how to use some of the best tools in the scrapbooking industry. Some of the most fabulous products will be explored and techniques taught by a group of wonderful and talented crafters and designers.
In the afternoon, OC Scrapbookers will offer some playtime with products in the form of mini workshops. I will be there on Saturday demoing with Spellbinders in one time slot and then Martha Stewart punches during another time slot in the morning. In the afternoon I will be offering tutorial to make this card I've featured here to 16 participants, eight participant per workshop and I will do it twice during the afternoon. Watch my demos in the morning and then participate in the workshop where you can see how these beautiful die-cuts and punch-outs can be layered on a project for added depth and dimension. All the details to participate in my Envelope Folding Card tutorial is on the O.C. newsletter that has been sent out. If you have not received the email and you are not on the OC newsletter email list, email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward you a copy of the newsletter and give Deb at OC Scrapbookers your email address to add you to their contact list. I highly recommend that you PRE-REGISTER for my mini-workshop because it will be first come, first served beginning with email registration for those who know they will be making it out on Saturday. Email Deb at email@example.com and she can put you down in the order that you email her. I can't recommend this too strongly as there are several who have indicated that they want to make this card to take home on Saturday!
You will learn how to score and fold this paper into a card that folds into itself and then embellish with all of the die-cuts and punch-outs already precut to save time. After our cards are made, play with the tools. use the Grand Calibur and see for yourself how easy it is and the beautiful results you can achieve each time you make a pass. See for yourself how you can cut up to eight different die-cuts in each pass depending on the size of your dies. Explore the versatility of the Grand Calibur and the Spellbinder dies! What an amazing product line and one that just keeps growing and improving season to season!! Email me!
