It is time to make cards and gifts for Valentine’s Day. If you are looking for a place to work on scrapbooking, cardmaking or other papercrafting projects there are a number of local events coming up:
Snippin Snaps Weekend Crops in Hillsborough
February 18-19, 2011. Schley Grange Hall. Crop from 6:00pm until 12:00 midnight on Friday. Return for a full day of cropping from 9:00am until 5:00pm on Saturday. The price for the full weekend is only $28. This is a no frills crop so plan to bring your own food and drinks. There will be a selection of tools available for you to use and lots of products available for purchase at a great price.
January 19, 2011, Copics Card Class. Schley Grange Hall. This class will be held from 10:00 am-11:00 am and is open to everyone, even if you are not attending the weekend crop. I am a Certified Intermediate Copic Designer and will be teaching this class. Join me to learn how to use Copic markers to create a fun card and learn how to color blue jeans. The class is appropriate for beginners, as well as those who are experienced with using Copic markers. The cost of the class is $25 and includes 3 Copic Sketch markers and all the materials you will need to create the card. There will be supplies available to purchase, if you would like to make additional cards on your own. You can register for the class online here. As an added bonus, if you sign up for the class you will receive a coupon for $10.00 off your next weekend crop!
