Christmas in July
The cold weather is well and truly upon us with the cold snap that seems to be gripping South East Queensland or is it just the feeling I have of not being able to thaw out? What ever the correct answer is the month of July teamed with the cold weather is a perfect reason to celebrate Christmas earlier especially if you are a card maker!!! Michelle has planned some extraordinary cards to kick start your Christmas card making production line...secret Santas and Christmas nibblies will add to the festivities. Check out the timetable for dates and times for Classy Cards.
July is also a fairly unique month having five Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays which means Moonlighting appears three times in July...to start the month we are offering Moonlighting special.... Moonlighting on Friday July 1 is pay for one and bring a friend!!
A chance to catch up with friends and be creative...sounds like fun to me!! For the Moonsketch that Friday you will need 1x 4x6 Horizontal and 3x 4x4 Squares.
We are also holding a special event on the last Saturday in July...a once only 3 hour class 'Layer Upon Layer' Think smooch pigment inkpads, sponge applicators, clear embossing powder teamed with beautiful papers and embellishments. This is a class for only the first 8 lucky people booked in, a kit class that is designed to showcase the art of layering inked and stamped images into a stunning double page layout. Be quick to avoid disappointment!!
