COPIC 101 / 102 Class Updates

What a GREAT turnout for my COPIC 101 classes!  They were held within the last week and both SOLD OUT.  I was able to meet some more very nice ladies and looking forward to seeing them again in July for COPIC 102 classes which are also almost sold out as well.  Below are the upcoming dates for the remaining Copic Classes at Wiggles & Giggles:
  • COPIC 102: 7/11 @ 11:30am (only 2 spots left)
  • COPIC 101: 7/11 @ 2pm (some openings still exist)
  • COPIC 102: 7/15 @ 6pm (only 1 spot left)
Be sure to sign up soon if you would like to begin or continue learning about these wonderful markers.  Best of all you will get a perfect coordinating set of three markers to take home with you after using them in class.

Summertime Schedule

Needless to say, it has still been pretty busy lately (since my last post was on 4/30- over a month ago!).  I do feel like I can breathe again.  My full time job is no longer insane...busy, but tolerable.  Wow, where does the time go?  I cannot believe it's June already and the weather has been reminding us of that with the gross humidity - thank goodness for air conditioning!  I am hoping w/the rain this weekend that I will end up having more time to create some more projects. 
After previously having to postpone two of my layout classes (one at each store location), they were held this week and last week.  It felt great to be back doing what I enjoy, meeting new people, seeing familiar faces and sharing my love/obsession for scrapbooking.

Upcoming classes:
  • COPIC 101 classes at Wiggles & Giggles will be held on Thursday, June 10th (SOLD OUT) and Sunday, June 13th (only ONE spot left).  Additional class recently added for Sunday, July 11th and starting to fill.
  • COPIC 102 classes at Wiggles & Giggles will be held on Sunday, July 11th (only a FEW spots left) and Thursday, July 15th is starting to fill as well.
  • Picture Perfect Pages layout and card class using the gorgeous Basic Grey Cappella papers at Wiggles & Giggles will be on Thursday, July 22nd (a June class will not be held).  We will be focusing on the different ways to display your photos on this layout as well as paper weaving techniques.  Layout and card is already on display at the store.
  • Scrap More Layout and card class at The Inspiration Station will be on Wednesday, August 4th (a July class will not be held).  We will be using Melissa Frances papers with techniques for creating paper roses (now I am thinking of Marie Osmond) as well as altering premade flowers in different ways.  Fun techniques - don't miss it! Hoping to finish this one up this weekend.
  • Altered Frame Collage class using 7 Gypsies Venice papers at Wiggles & Giggles on Sunday, July 25th. A wonderful way to showcase some of your photos!  Final touches will be completed and on display at the store soon.
  • Embossed Expressions Brass Stencil card class using a dragonfly stencil at Wiggles & Giggles will be held on Sunday, July 25th.  Join me to see how many different uses and techniques you can get out of one brass stencil!  All paper will be precut by the instructor to allow you time to focus on the techniques during class.  Best of take home this brass stencil after class!  Cards will be on display this weekend at the store.
  • The Family Nest Accordion Album using 7 Gypsies Venice papers (yes, I like this paper) and stickers at The Inspiration Station on Wednesday, August 11th.  This album is just perfect for some family photos. Some people had a preview of this album during class this week, but it will be displayed at the store by the end of this weekend.
Pictures of the above classes will be posted to my blog and available for viewing at each store location soon (if not already there) - PROMISE!

If you cannot make the class but would like to get a kit all you have to do is sign up for the class and tell them that you would like a kit.  This can be done for any of the classes listed above, except COPIC 101, COPIC 102 or the Embossed Expressions Brass Stencil card classes.
