Knitters and other crafters are welcome. The location is so beautiful!
The event is held at Rosemary Heights Retreat Centre in beautiful South Surrey, BC - even though it's located in a large municipality it truly is nestled away in a wonderful, tranquil setting - you would think you were away in the country.

This month was a little different. I always have a Christmas luncheon for my Club Ladies. So for our class prior to lunch (yummy curried chicken and lentil soup) we did two technique pages and two samples. Here are the cards we made!
Both samples use re-inkers to color them.
The first is embossed in white..then the petals are painted with white reinker and allowed to dry. You then Paint over the white in the colour of your choice..I use Wisteria Wonder on this one. I also sponged the edges of the top layer of the card and embossed it with white embossing powder. I love this technique!
This one was done on Watercolour Paper but you can also use our shimmery white cardstock. You want a paper/cardstock that will be able to be spritzed with water.
Again emboss the image in white. Spritz the image very well with water. Then put the tip of your paint brush into the lighter shade of reinker first and then touch the wet image..it's like magic and totall addictive as the water carries the colour out to the edges of the image. The embossing works like a dam and keeps the colour within the lines. It's such a cool techinique! My nickname for it is Watercolouring for Dummies :-)
(BTW..the script embossing folder is only available until the end of the month! I do have an order going in today if you want me to add it on for you? Just drop me a quick e-mail. Thanks)
You can join the class as a member and just place a minimum monthly order or you can just drop in and pay a fee. Each class includes a technique sheet and sample and two other cards.
I would love to have you join us. Classes are usually held on the first Saturday of the month! Cost is $20 or $5 with a minimum $33 order on the day.
Thanks for stopping by!

The date is set!! Would love to have you join us for this amazing day of stamping and laughter and friendship!! Here are the details:
Benefitting the BC Ronald McDonald House here in Vancouver, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the Lower Mainland will lead you through a day of paper-crafting filled with creativity, laughter and fun for everyone! You'll journey from station to station while creating beautiful hand-stamped and hand-assembled greeting cards and gift tags. All featuring current Stampin' Up! products, colors, embellishments and more, once you start you're not going to want to stop! Greeting cards will feature a variety of themes: thank you, birthday, kids, holiday, blank and much more! Visit our gift tag buffet and create up to 5 quick and easy gift tags using this year's Stampin' Up!-exclusive "Tag It" Stamp Set! Best of all, as part of your registration fee, you'll receive your own copy of this stamp set to take home and enjoy afterwards!
Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 19th from 11-5pm,. Then book your space, and gather your friends and family - - you're not going to want to miss out on this fundraising event!! Special thanks to McDonald's Head Office in Burnaby for donating their venue space for our event! Doors open at 10am and crafting starts promptly at 11am! Don't worry if you get a bit peckish or parched, there'll be light snacks and refreshments served throughout the day to keep you energized - but you may want to bring an additional snack with you just in case.
Though we guarantee even the most novice of stamper will enjoy creating these cards and tags, given the complexity of some of the projects, we suggest children under the age of 15 sit this one out.
Space is limited to the first 100 participants, and your place isn't secured until your non-refundable registration fee of $65 has been paid in full. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and e-transfer payments (for e-transfer, please email the Event Coordinator directly at email@example.com) and payments or registrations will not be accepted at the door. Please be sure to print off your ticket confirmation (or plan to show it to us on your smartphone) to gain access to the event as well as to receive your welcome kit and "Tag It" Stamp Set.
*Please note that "clear mount" requires clear acrylic blocks (not included) for positioning and usage. (Please bring your own to the event) "Wood mount" are natural feeling maple wood blocks - similar to 'traditional' wood-mounted stamps from yester-year. Once you have selected your stamp mount preference and completed your registration and received confirmation, your mount preference can't be changed.
