Upcoming Classes and Events - March 2009

I have updated the class schedule over on the right-hand side bar of this blog, but am posting them here as well for all you girls interested in classes. Also you will note the gorgeous Carousel Notes Purse that I have pictured at the top of this purse - this is just one of the projects that you can have the opportunity to make this month. I must confess that I have shamelessly CASEd Jan Tink's beautiful design, right down to using the same Afternoon Tea paper that she used. If something is perfect why mess with it right?? Although I tweaked it very very slightly. If you are interested in classes on the Central Coast, keep reading. I have also put more photos of the inside of the Purse at the bottom of this post.

Here's what I have on offer this month:

Everyday Card Class (2 spots left in this class)
When: Wednesday 4th March, 7.30pm
Where: Narara, NSW
Cost $20 (or $15 if you provide your own Snail Adhesive - or you can buy it on the night)

Make sure that you are prepared for your cards coming up this year... you'll make 4 cards:

* One Friend's Card
* One Male Card
* One kid's card
* One Anniversary/Love-themed Card

All materials and Light refreshments provided

Places fill quickly so please contact me early if you would like to attend any of the planned events or classes. I will give you my address details when you book in.

Retirement Party
When: Monday 9th March, 7.30pm
Where: Narara, NSW
Cost: $10

This is a special night to celebrate and commiserate over the many stamps and accessories being retired this year. Come and say goodbye with a couple of projects using much-loved soon-to-be-discontinued stamps and accessories. There will be prizes and specials available on the night that you would not have access to at other times. I will also be allowing you to reserve stamp sets retiring from my own collection as I make way for new stuff due out on April 1st. It will be a really fun night but I only have limited space available, so it will be first-in, best dressed!

All materials and Light Refreshments provided. Email me at higgiz@bigpond.com to reserve your spot.

Carousel Notes Purse Class (The bag is shown at the Top of this post)
When: Monday 16th March, 7.30pm
Where: Narara, NSW
Cost: $25

I've been wanting to run a class to make this gorgeous Carousel Notes Purse for quite a while, and I realized that I need to do it now in case the Carousel Notes dont make it into our next Idea Book and Catalogue coming out in April. This is such a gorgeous project and I cant wait to make it with you - I'll pop a photo up on the blog in the next few days so that you can see it. If you are looking for a seriously classy gift for a friend or family member, this is it. It's not as hard as it looks either, but come prepared to be busy tonight!

All materials and Light Refreshments provided. Email me at higgiz@bigpond.com to reserve your spot.

Technique Class - Marvellous Markers
When: Monday 23rd March, 10.30am
Where: Narara, NSW
Cost: $15

Come and learn some of the many ways you can use Stampin'Write markers in your Stamping and Card Projects. The Markers are actually my personal favourite tool - there are so many things you can do with them, and you will love all the gorgeous effects you can create. You will make 3 projects in this class - so come along and see what you can create!

All materials and Light Lunch provided. Email me at higgiz@bigpond.com to reserve your spot. Classes do fill quickly so it's first in-best dressed.

Here are some more photos of the purse for you: (please excuse my carpet - I just got the best light in that position near the window)
