Hobby Lobby Classes

Jumping in with both feet......I have decided to host a weekly paper crafting class at our local Hobby Lobby. I have never done anything like this before, but I thought....why not?  Like many of my fellow crafters I am blessed with abundant paper, gadgets, inks, stamps, and tons of ideas and sketches that I would love to share with others. I totally love making cards and mini's and have tentatively planned a class every Wednesday morning. Our first class was on October 12th and we had three ladies to show up and had a great time crafting together. I was tickled to find out most of the ladies had never used many of the mediums planned for our projects. I never realized how much time is involved with planning and preparing for a weekly three hour class. I now spend several mornings making notes, cutting paper, and getting my ducks in a row for class. I hate to pay for a class with an unprepared teacher. Trying my best to make sure this will not happen!  Needless to say it has been so much fun. On our last class we were laughing so much that we had some of the stores customers looking in to see what was going on. Here are some pictures of the cards and projects done in class.


This is a card portfolio. Totally made from using cardstock and ribbon.
It will hold up to four handmade cards

I love how these leaves turned out


I enjoyed finding several fonts and ink colors on my computer for this verse


We used embossing folders and Spellbinder dies for this card

We "rock and rolled" on the cork, used an edge punch,
another Spellbinder die, & stamped an image


A close up view of the card. Thanks for looking!
