Advent Calendar Class - Joy Blocks Class
Saturday Nov. 1

4:00-7:00 pm

Isn't this darling?  I've had so many requests for this as a workshop.  Especially from those who may not own a cricut.  When you sign up for this class you get the use of my cricut to cut all the cute little drawers.
I can't wait to fill mine with treats and little activity ideas for the kiddos.
The price of this workshop is $50 - it includes the solid wood cubby frame, all the embellishments, paper, stamps and instructions needed to create this project.  I will supply the cricut, ink pads, and other tools.
You just bring strong adhesive and scissors. (I recommend liquid glass).
Wanna know the awesome part?  I'm going to reuse my cubby, instructions and stamp set to create other advent calendars.  I'll just decorate and switch out my little drawers ~ like birthdays, halloween, easter, valentines ... I'm getting kind of excited!

Okay, I just decided to add this to the advent calendar class.  I made this at my unit's scrapbook retreat. These blocks were designed by my fabulous friend Renae Fennema. Aren't they beautiful?  They are extremely sparkly in "real life" too.
Cost for project is $16
Includes 3 my creations blocks, satin polka dot ribbon, sparkles, pre-cut papers,
silver embossing, glitter tape and inks.
Please bring liquid glass and adhesive.

Class-no refunds if class meets once

  • Next is a new Halloween Craft Class.  Close To My Heart released a brand new line of home decor and cute project supplies.  I decided to teach this darling Halloween Display Tray class.  This project was inspired by a fabulous consultant friend of mine, Michelle Beck.  This class will be October 9th at 7 pm in Bountiful.  (My house until further notice).  Cost is $30, this includes a display tray, chipboard dimensional elements, precut paper, & black tulle ribbon (can't really see this in the pic).  You will need to bring scissors and strong adhesive - I recommend liquid glass.
