Wonderful Washi: I've been having a very crafty time with my collection of washi and paper tapes. In this class you will learn a minimum of 10 different techniques using these lovely little tapes plus a project for the next time you are entertaining guests. We will also be completing a one page layout using washi tape. The class fee is $7.50 + materials which you provide. I will post at least a week before the class with a materials list.

Ladies' Day Out: Six uninterrupted hours of crafting and socializing . . . and it's free!!!

Design Strategies: Do you ever wonder where to start as you stare at your blank page? Do you believe you are not as creative as your friends? Are you in a rut? Do you feel like something is missing or wrong with your layouts but you don't know what? Relax and take a deep breath. I am going to teach you some exciting design principles to get you back on track. Once you understand basic layout design principles, scrapbooking becomes easier and more fun. You will be loving your scrapbooking again.

Bits & Pieces Open House: You are cordially invited to our open house and sale to see all the wonderful scrap-booking treasures we have at low low low prices. Join us for a free make n take.The event will take place at 49 John Street, St Thomas. The home of "The Fifty Cent Lady" Debbie Shannon.
