Michaels Classes for December and January

Today was Class Preview Day again at Michaels. In case you don't know what that is, we sit at tables with samples of our projects and talk to people about our classes attempting to generate interest and get sign ups. Last time we gave out a discounted coupon if they signed up that day. While we sit we are supposed to do/make something. I intended to color my sample coloring class book, but instead I worked on the cards for my December and January Card Club. I'm trying to add to their stamping skills each month.

December Card Club. I'm going to emboss and use the Big Kick die cutter. The cards are Beyond Postmarks Tennyson from K&CO. Their will choose the paper and the saying. Michaels doesn't have much of a selection of Christmas papers right now.

January Card Club
I'm not finished with this card yet, but I think we might emboss again, and I'm not sure what else I'm going to do but I have a couple of weeks to figure it out. All I know so far is that I want to use these cards. They will get to choose their papers, but for my sample I used papers from My Mind's Eye's Bohemian collection. The cards are Beyond Postmarks Keats from K&CO.

I'm also teaching the Paper Purses again in December and January. I'm going to do a different paper crafts project in February.

The papers and embellishments of the two above purses are from the Martha Stewart collection.

I love all these ideas! I wish you taught at our local Michaels here in Ohio! What neat ideas.

I stumbled across your blog and have been thoroughly enjoying it this morning.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family!
