Playing with acetate
This is my first attempt at an acetate card, and the main card for today's card class. It's a pretty simple card, the hardest part is knowing which layer to adhere first. I like the ribbon on the side- no bows, nothin' fancy. I might change the blue eyelet to a white brad for some additional pop. We'll see what the girls come up with.
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Be Happy
Card stock: Acetate, Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss, Black and White
Ink: White Staz-On, Bashful Blue (classic)
Accessories: Button, eyelet, misc. ribbon, thread, glue dots (many of them!)
Tools: Crop-a-dile and circle punches
Alright, now as promised .... the news.
The craft studio's closing! Yep, you read right. The craft studio you've come to know and love will be shuttin' down. May 10th will be my last class there and I'll be packing up May 11th. Ack!? Not at all. Read on.
This change is leading the way for me to walk into a better and brighter open door. I'll be back in (a different) craft space this August -location will be announced when things are more dialed. Classes will continue 1-2 times a month. With this change I'll be raising class prices (starting in August)- I'm not sure how much yet. I hate to do it, but need to cover costs. When I look around at class prices over the hill the going rate is about $25-$35 for a 4 card class. I'm not going to cut back on projects- I might even add to the number of cards we do (currently 5). My love is to stamp, and to teach. My goals will remain to keep it fun, keep it changing, and keep it reasonable!
For those of you that can't wait until August, I'll still do at least 1 class a month at my house. Also, if you are interested in having a stamping party at your place- just let me know. I'm pretty portable and would be happy to have class in your house.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support. I can only hope it's been as fun for you as it has been for me!
