Who likes to make holiday cards (and gift tags)? December classes at two locations!

I know Thanksgiving is looming for most of us, but I wanted to share some upcoming classes with you this week!

I made up the samples for these two classes and was reminded that making cards is fun! When I was younger, and my card list a lot shorter, I used to make my own cards every year. Then I got into the trend for a few (10+) years of sending photo cards. Last year I got back into handmade cards and sent handmade postcards for the holidays. I loved making and sending those out; something a little different for the mailbox, right?

Blockprinting Cards 12/5

Blockprinting Cards 12/5

Well this year you have the chance to make two types of cards (or gift tags if you already have your cards made…) with me!

The first class is 12/5 7-9pm at Circle of Stitches in Salem, MA. In this class we will be focused on blockprinting with the end result to make a few stamps to use on cards and tags. Having your own stamps means you can cover cards, tags, gift wrap, and other items with your own design in any color you choose! For this class, wee will stamp onto plain paper and then attach that to a card or tag base. I will bring all the materials (note: there is a $10 materials fee for this class). Sign up over at the Circle of Stitches website.

Collage Cards 12/7

The second class is 12/7 1-3pm (yes, in the afternoon) at Newburyport Art Association. In this class we will be collage-ing our way into the holidays. Newburyport Art Association will provide lots of fun papers and ideas to get you started as well as the card/tag bases. I will bring a few store bought stamps to share as well. Note that the class I am leading is for adults only, but there is one for families on 12/8 led by Sue Spellman if you are interested. Choose the right time for you at check-out over at the Newburyport Art Association website.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season friends!!
