LuminArte Technique Tags with Jenn – Saturday, April 9th (10am-1pm)
LuminArte has a range of different products from Twinkling H2O’s to Color Concentrate to Shimmering Mists all in stunning colors! In this class we will create a series of technique tags. You will have a printed label with the “recipe” on the back so you will be able to recreate these tags and techniques at a later date. Throughout the class Jenn will share with you projects where she has used these techniques so you can see how to translate them to cards, layouts and other papercrafts. You will not want to miss this jam packed class full of techniques – and you will even go home with some products to play with!
Price: $60 – SAVE $10 on this class when you sign up for The Copic Training Class too!

Paperie Clubs!

New to The Paperie, we are now introducing Clubs! These six month clubs will meet once a month from February – July.

Scraplifters Anonymous Club
Our SA club is a layout club. Designed with the Scrapbooker who wants to complete pages on a regular basis in mind, this club will meet one Tuesday evening each month to complete 2 – 12×12 layouts. Club Members will be provided with a kit filled with the materials required to complete the 2 layouts as well as a Sketch that the layouts are based on, so that you can use it over and over again. The focus when the club meets will be on page completion rather than learning new techniques. If you want to begin to get pages completed in your scrapbooks, this is the club for you! 
Cost: $20 per month. We require a 6 month commitment, with the option to have your credit card billed once a month. As a special incentive, Paperie Privilege Members who pay for 5 consecutive months, will get the 6th month free!
Copic Club
Are you collecting Copics but still a little unsure about all the ways you can use them? Or are you someone who has thought about purchasing these highly acclaimed markers but are still undecided? This Club will meet one Thursday evening each month from February – July. We will get together and pactice using Copic markers on colouring sheets, completing a card at the end of the session with the techniques we’ve learned.  You will want to bring an 8.5×11 binder and a pack of loose leafs to class to make notes and compile all of your practice sheets in one place. Included in the cost of each club fee is 2 Copic Markers, at the end of the term you will have accumulated $100 in Copic Markers!
Cost: $25 per month. We require a 6 month commitment, with the option to have your credit card billed once a month. As a special incentive, Paperie Privilege Members will receive one free Copic at time of registration!
