CALENDAR/CLASS PHOTOS


Hi Everyone -
Happy day-before-Independence Day! In my last email, I promised to send you photos and descriptions of the many Crafting Opportunities we have for you in July - so here they are! I do have to share with you that the Classes listed on the July Calendar are very popular. The phone rang all day yesterday with many of you registering for classes and we had a line at the counter yesterday morning with customers registering for classes. So if you see a class you are interested in - please call The Stamper's Cove (941-907-0802) to register.

Before I share the photos of the July classes, I want to share some photos from the classes we had recently! In this photo we have Marcia, Janita, Missy, Magda, Kim & Chrystal creating their 'Bird On a Branch' canvas! They looked great - and we had a blast!

In this photo, Liz, Gayle, Judy and Elise are creating their 'Bird On A Branch' canvases! Really great work ladies - and a lot of fun!


Now here are the many Crafting Opportunities we have for you in July!
Wednesday, July 8th, 10AM - 5PM. "The Paper Nest Dolls" owners/designers, Christine & Larry Young, will be here with many of their stamps for you to see and purchase! They will show you how to use their stamps on cards and layouts! Here is an example of their stamps below and if you'd like a sneak peak of what they have to order, you can check out their website:


Art Journal, Thursday, July 9th, 10AM - Noon, Class Fee: $10. Many of you have already attended the first class of our Art Journal series. This is the second class. If you have not registered and would like to start the Art Journal Class, it is not too late. We are starting a second class on Saturday, July 25th, 10AM - Noon. The initial cost to start the class is $20, which includes an Art Journal, and an Art Journal Book plus the first page of your journal. Each additional Art Journal Class is $10. The photo below is the second page of our Art Journal for the class that already started and the first page if you start the class on July 25th.

Flower Card, Envelope and Box Set, Thursday, July 9th, OR Saturday, July 11th OR Thursday, July 23rd, 1:30 - 4PM. Class Fee: $15. In this class we will make 6 cards with coordinating envelopes and a gift box. We will use Bo Bunny stamps, double dot card stock, the Envelope Punch Board and embossing powder to create these cards. This set will make a great gift for a special someone or for YOU! Here is a photo of the set.

Tag Book, Friday, July 10th, 10AM - 4PM. Class Fee: $15. We will use Graphic 45 papers, stamps, and embellishments to create this great book. It has 6 pockets for tags (we will make our own) to place your photos or use for quotes. Here are some photos of the book.

We create 2 cards in each class and the die comes with the class. On Tuesday, July 14th we will use the Lawn Fawn "Finley's 123s" die ($15) and on Tuesday, July 28th, we will use the Taylored Expressions, "City Skyline" cutting plate ($20). I will have a photo of the cards on line next week.

Never Ending Scrap Book Page, Tuesday, July 14th, 6-8PM. Class Fee: $10.
Have you heard of the 'Never Ending Scrap Book Page?' Have you ever seen one? In this class we will make a 'Never Ending Scrap Book Page. You can put at least 8 photos on the Never Ending Scrap Book Page, a many more if you choose. This layout is hard to explain but I will try. Looking at the photo below, you can see the page starts out as a 12x12 page, then opens, then opens again and again. The photo below shows each section WITHOUT the photos, ALSO this is NOT the paper we will be using - the photo is just a sample. We already have people registered for this class, so if you are interested, be sure to call the store ASAP!

Water Color Cards, Wednesday, July 15th OR Thursday, July 30th, 1:30 - 3:30PM. Class Fee: $12.50. Water Coloring is becoming very popular. In this class we will explore some different mediums for 'water coloring,' while creating 3 fun cards. We will use a water brush (please bring one if you have one), water color paper, Distress Inks, stamps and more in this class. You will need a heavy adhesive (score tape, ATG, etc) for this class.

Beach Canvas, Wednesday, July 22nd OR Saturday, July 25th, 1-4PM. Class Fee: $15. Chrystal Beckel, our wonderful artist has created a fun summer, Beach Canvas. It is 8x10. We will use acrylic paint, paper, templates (don't worry, no drawing necessary), die cuts and more to create this canvas.

Summer Shadow Box, Wednesday, July 29th, 1 - 5PM. Class Fee: $25. Chrystal Beckel is in the process of designing this Summer inspired shadow box.

Inside the box will be shells (bring some with you) and many 'beachy' dimensional items (palm tree, sand, sun, etc). Bring a small 2.75" X 3" photo to place in the center of your box. We will have a photo of this project in an email next week!
