So it’s back to normal!  It was so nice to see all you that stopped by the booth this past weekend at the Scrapbook Expo.  It was crazy fun!  This was the first year that I was able to get my act together in time to submit workshops for the expo and I taught a collage class on Friday and an acetate class on Saturday.  We did two fun folds in the acetate class, a window card and a gap card using acetate.  While I was a complete rookie at Expo classes, I think we managed to pull off a couple of nice stamping/crafting opportunities for our attendees.  Now to start figuring out a few things for next year already.

So now that expo is a wrap and we can return to regularly programing, I’ve got to shift focus to the yard, the house and my “normal” classes.  Normal of course is a relative word around here.  Normal crazy, normal chaos…normal is such a “subjective” word.  Now, I usually have a Take Three Class on first Thursday and Friday of the month and with the expo that thru that entire plan down the drain.  Between Memorial Day weekend and the fact that I’m on a 2nd shift schedule at the hospital it’s making my month a little bit of an issue….so…I’ve got ONLY one day for the Take Three Free Card Class this month.  It’s going to be Friday, May 10th from 9:30am-7pm.  Of course, nothing is perfect and as such, Adria is graduating with her Masters on that Friday so I’m heading out around noon but I’ve got “class sitters” lined up for the rest of the day.  🙂   Now don’t forget, the Take Three Free Class is open to any stamper that brings a $25 order with them on the day of the class.  It’s scads of fun and like I said, we usually do Thursday and Friday.  Now here’s the really fun part.  I have a Rewards Club that goes along with this.  For my special customers that join the “Rewards Club”, we commit to attending the Take Three class for 8 months and in the course of the 8 months, each member places a minimum of a $20 order and we rotate the Hostess Benefits among the Rewards Club Members.  I have quite a few extra perks for my Club Members and the good news is that we are starting a new round of clubs this month!  How about it?  Want to get in with the In-Crowd?  Its a barrel of fun!

Here’s one of the cards that we will be stamping that day.

It’s using the Everything Is Rosy Bundle.  Purchase this medley of products from me by May 11th

(it’s while supplies last – so don’t wait!) and you will be invited to either an in person class or a virtual video tutorial along with a pdf with directions and supplies to make 4 cards using the Everything Is Rosy kit.  This suite of products is amazing.  I was extremely impressed with the items in person.  It’s swoon worthy!
