COLORING CARDS CLASS

COST:  $28.00
This class is open to kids and adults.  Make it a mother/daughter event!
Multiple Kits are available upon request for those wanting to make a set of cards for themselves, as well as for a gift(s).  Additional kits are just $12.00.
KITS TO GO ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.  Postage costs will be applied if I will be mailing your kit to you.   




Coloring is all the craze right now.  It is actually a proven fact that coloring is good for your health.  Adult coloring books are filling bookstores, art supply stores, as well as, department stores.  Did you ever give thought to the fact that our outline stamps allow you to make your very own coloring sheets?  In this class I will teach you how to random stamp (2) 12 x 12 sheets of white daisy cardstock using a fun NEW stamp set (#C1640 “Friend in Me”).  We will then cut these sheets to create 6 standard size cards.  We will also use the sheet we stamp to embellish a card box.  This box will fit the cards and envelopes perfectly.  You can add some of our the CTMH Shin Han Twin Touch markers to your box to make a lovely gift for a friend or loved one OR to keep for yourself.  The stamp set you use in class is yours to keep so you can create more coloring cards, coloring sheets, gift wrap, gift tags and so much more at home!
If you do not own blocks to put your stamps on or the Memento Fade-Resistant black dye ink pad, I do recommend you add these products to your class fee.  Markers are another appropriate add-on product.  You can let me know if you want to add to any optional add-on products to your registration upon registering for class.

PLEASE REGISTER ON/BEFORE FRIDAY, JANUARY 22nd so I have time to order all supplies



CARD BUFFET
DATE:  TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2nd
TIME:  10 a.m-12:00 OR 6:30-8:30 p.m.
R.S.V.P ON/BEFORE MONDAY, JANUARY 25th

*kids 10 and up are welcome to participate-this makes another fun mother/daughter activity!*
                 
Wondering what exactly a Card Buffet is? It's like an all-you-can-eat food buffet. The difference is that instead of food, it's cards. Instead of eating, you're making.  You can make as many as you can finish in the 2 hour time period and pay at the end.  

These buffets will be held right here in my home in my stamp/scrapbook studio. I will allow a maximum of 8 attendees at each class so there will be plenty of space for you to work.  Call or email me to reserve your spot early so you are guaranteed a spot. Dates and Times to Choose From:
    *Tuesday morning, February 2nd from 10 am - noon
    *Tuesday evening, February 2nd  from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions:

How does a card buffet work?  Easy!  You come, you eat as much as you want (make as many cards as you want) in the time period of the buffet, and then you go home.

What do I need to bring to the buffet?  Adhesive. That's it. I supply the rest.  I suggest a regular paper adhesive of your choice, glue dots, and 3D foam tape or squares. Bring plenty of each so you don't run out!

How many cards can I make?  As many as you want in the time period. The only rule is you have to finish each card completely before you move to the next card.

How much does it cost?  You pay by the card. $2 per card, which includes envelopes. There are a few ways to get your cards for less. For every friend you register and bring with you, you get .25 off each card. So, bring 2 friends, and your cards are only $1.50 each, bring 3 and they are $1.25, and so on.  The other way is to order at the buffet. For every $25 you order (before shipping and tax), you get .25 off the card prices.  Spend $25, get your cards at $1.75 each. Spend, $50, they'll be $1.50...and so on.  Combine bringing friends and ordering and you could feasibly get your cards for FREE!!!!!

How much time will it take to make each card?  That depends on you and how quick you are. It also depends on which cards you choose.  Some cards are a little more complicated, some are simple, and there are some in between.

How many kits are there for each card?  That varies but there are plenty of cards and kits to keep everyone happy!

What does a kit consist of?  All pre-cut pieces for the card, the card base and envelope, all embellishments, and the use of any tools and supplies (other than your adhesives) that are required to put the card together.

What kinds of cards will be available?  A good variety of all-occasion cards, Valentine cards, Thank you cards, birthday cards, to name a few.

What if I love one card and want to make several of that card?  No problem! I just ask that you take one kit of that card at a time and finish that card before you get out another one. 

Is there any way to get my cards at a discount?  Yes!  There are 3 ways.
  • When you call to reserve your spot, reserve a spot for a friend that has never attended one of my classes or workshops before and I will take .25 off your $2 per card price, which will get you your cards at $1.75 each.  Bring 2 friends, get your cards for $1.50 each, and so on.
  • The other way is to order at the buffet. For every $25 you order (before shipping and tax), you get .25 off the card prices.  Spend $25, get your cards at $1.75 each. Spend, $50, they'll be $1.50...and so on.
