April Stack a Stash, with Bonnie

On the last Sunday of the month, we teach a card class called Stack A Stash, hosted by a different instructor each month. It is such a great way to start your stash of cards, ready to have on hand when an occasion arises.

In the Stack A Stash classes,
you make two all occasion cards and two Christmas cards.

This month you will be creating two Christmas cards using the new Tim Holtz Prancing Deer die and some embossing enamel and two all occasion cards with a gorgeous spring window scene. The sentiments will be your choice.

Call the store at 250-769-1257 to register.

Elegant Gift Box & Card in One, with Annette

Construct an elegant card and gift box in one!  The card is the top of the box and, when you lift the flaps on the side, you have a gift box for enclosing treats of your choice (e.g. soap, candy bars).  A gift card/greeting tag/money slot is also part of the design.

The pre-cutting will all be done for you so your primary goal will be learning how to “build” the structure including where to place the magnets so that the box is totally functional.  You will go home with an extra sample (unfinished) so that you can refer to it as needed.  Of course, you will also have detailed instructions.
