Spring Has Sprung

Join me next Friday at either 12:30 or 6:30 as we make 5 cards, all with a spring theme.  I'm really tired of the dreary weather and decided the best way to beat the winter blues is to welcome spring with open arms!  What better way than cards with flowers and butterflies.  So let's have fun making cards and hanging out!  Call me and sign up today!

Quilling with Christy

I am so excited to have Christy Rolf join our team of amazing teachers!  Christy has been teaching Quilling for a number of years and has graciously agreed to join us at C-Shore Creations, inc.  Next Thursday night is Quilling 1 at 6:30.  You will learn the basics of quilling including tension, shaping, etc.  We will be offering Quilling 2, Quilled Frames, and much, much more in the coming months.  You must have taken Quilling 1 in order to take the other classes.  The only way around this would be if you are a quiller already.  We will be offering Quilling 1 again next month, but don't miss out on the fun.  There are two spaces left for next Thursday, call me and sign up right away.  Below are samples of Quilling 2 and Quilled Frames to give you a sneak peek.

Bet Your Brass

So many of you missed out on the brass stencil class back in the fall that we are offering it again.  Come join Susan as she shows you some really cool ways to use those stencils that have been sitting in a drawer forever.  You'll make some beautiful cards, learn some new techniques, and have fun along the way.  What better way to spend your time!  Call and sign up today for this class which is next Wednesday at both 12:30 and 6:30!

Another Day of Rain! Take a class!

Personally, I love the rain.  It cools the air down and ya'll know how I am about the heat.  But at some point, I need to have my yard mowed.  As if that's not enough, today, in between thunderstorms, the AC guys are here to replace our air conditioner because after only 8 years, it has decided to die.  Builders, not all but at least ours, will put in the most cost effective for them, not the best quality for you.  I grew up in Florida where air conditioners lasted 15 years.  Oh, well, time to stamp!

Today is Baker's Dozen and it is a full class.  However, if you're out in the rain and want to stop by, come on down!  Tomorrow is "This Little Pigment".  Susan will have you make 5 cards using pigment inks in different ways.  I don't know about you, but I seem to leave my pigments on the shelf and I gravitate toward my dye inks.  Hopefully, this will show us ways to bring those pads off the shelf and give them new life!  The cards are pictured below in last weeks post and are gorgeous!!

Next Wednesday, Susan is revisiting your brass templates.  Another item that we buy 'cause we have to have them and then we never use them.  We had this class back in the fall and are revisiting it due to many requests.  Call and sign up so you don't miss out!

This Little Pigment

I am remiss in not posting this picture earlier, I apologize.  It seems time just gets away from me, and I'm not even stamping!!
Susan has created these beautiful cards for class next Wednesday using Pigment Ink Pads.  The samples have been hanging in the shop for the past month, so I'm sure you've seen them and pictures NEVER do the original justice.  Call and sign up immediately for this awesome class where you will make all five cards, learning cool techniques for those pigment ink pads we all have sitting around, for only $20.00!  You won't want to miss this one!

I will be holding an Easter card class next Tuesday, the 12th.  You will make 5 cards for $15.00.  Some elegant, some cute, something for everyone!

The photo here is of three of the projects you'll make next Wednesday daytime and Thursday evening in Terri's Candy Bar Wrapper class!  You will make 7 projects total, but you know Terri, she'll have something extra for you in this class.  No one has ever taken her class where they didn't have a ball!  There is still a little room in this class so call and sign up today!
