Events – June & July

Isn’t it great to start the month with a holiday weekend? Now I’m dreaming of what it would be like if every month started this way!
It has given me the chance to get all the events for the next two months listed here (check to the left of this page).

I hope you find something there to catch your eye.

June – regular Saturday afternoon workshop, Card Creations, and a special scrapbooking class.  That’s a great one for beginners or those more experienced who want to get more done in a short time.

July – Saturday afternoon 10 cards in a box class, weekend retreat, and Card Creations Tuesday night.

The retreat is full, but everything else is open for registrations!


Free for you

Sponging with the cricut







A little bit of sponge and a little bit of ink, and you can create some gorgeous effects.

These photos are from the Close To My Heart official blog.  We’ll be trying some of these at the workshop on Saturday 13 May. To see all the instructions, visit Make It From Your Heart.
