Keeping Track of Life | Thursday May 8th | 7-9pm
Instructor: Krista Wells
We’ve reinvented the Project Life concept to chronicle a year in your life. One evening per month is all you need to create an interactive layout and a pocket page full of embellished photos, quotes and all those bits and pieces you want to save to remember the previous month. Keeping Track of Life is intended to be a flexible class for participants with month to month sign up. This year we’ll be incorporating a variety of different page protectors in our classes while also sticking to our interactive layouts. Krista recommends you read this fantastic blog post by Rachel Macy Stafford that inspired her class name.
Book of Me | Saturday May 10th | 10am-1pm
Instructor: Rae Lynn O’Keefe
Capturing our family life is important, but if you’re the one documenting everyone else, how will your family or children remember your favourite colour, movie, food, or your daily routine, what makes you happy or sad? Over the next few months, this layout series will help you capture a little bit about yourself, and make you think about and share “your everyday things to the heartfelt things.” We will make two layouts in each class, which will include at least one photo of yourself, or a photo that means something to you, and some handwritten journaling to express how you feel about the layout topic.
Seasonal Canvas | Thursday, May 15th | 6:30-9:30pm
Instructor: Sara Case-Strickland
*a sample of Sara’s canvas – this class series will involve 4 different canvases.
Join us for the first class in a series of 4 seasonal canvases. Home decor is all the rage with paper crafters right now and we know you all have the talent to jump in and display your artwork with pride! Join Sara throughout the year to make 4 different canvases for your home – one for each season. You’ll learn how to use basic mixed media supplies, as well as how to use up all those scraps you can’t bear to throw away. You’ll leave class with a beautiful canvas to show off!
*this class is suitable for everyone – beginner to advanced
Distress Renewed | Thursday May 22nd | 6:30–8:30pm
Instructor: Sara Case Strickland
In the second of our Distressed Renewed classes, Sara will be focusing on Dylusions Spray Inks – what makes them unique, how to achieve different looks with them, and how to make them work with other products in your stash. As always, we’ll make two layouts and some card fronts so you get a whole bunch of techniques to try out! Never tried these mists? This class is suitable for all skill-levels – including beginners – so come and learn about Dylusions Spray Inks!

Christmas Card Class | Tuesday, May 27th | 6:30-8:00pm
Instructor: Meghan Fahey
Every month we will teach a new class featuring 10 clean and simple holiday cards (two new designs per class) to help you quickly increase your stash so you’ll be well ahead of the game by the time Christmas 2014 rolls around. You’ll go home with the sweet Penny Black cling stamps shown above in case you want to make more cards later. If you can’t make it to the class feel free to reserve a kit in advance.
