Michael's Arts and Crafts store revamp the paperEd program

Michaels have revamped their paper crafting program for 2013.  We'll be focusing on the following areas:

  1. Card Making
  2. Tools and Technology
  3. Stamping and Inks
  4. Journaling 
  5. Scrapbooking and Scrap INs
What does this mean for the Latham store?

For Card Making-We'll continue to offer a new card class (Card Tricks) each month on the first Tuesday of the month.  Class will remain $10 and will include supplies other than adhesive.

For Tools and Technology-We'll offer a Test Drive class each month on one key product.  Within each quarter, the test drives will rotate and then repeat in the next quarter.  They include Spellbinders dies with the Grand Caliber, Cricut E2, and Sizzix.  Class will remain $10 and will include supplies other than adhesive.  For the Cricut class, you may bring your Cricut for more hands on experience.

For Stamps and Inks-The Card Tricks will always include some rubber stamping because that's what I love!  Each month we will offer one version of tINKer Time which includes various techniques with Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress products and Perfect Pearls.  There are three versions of the class:  101, 201, and 301. In each class you will make 10 tags which can be used as a reference book for future projects. These classes will rotate each month and repeat for the next quarter.  If you took my Technique Tag Class at Captured Moment, the same tags will be completed in 101 and 201.  The 301 class will include additional techniques.

For Journaling-We will offer something like the Project Me description on the website, however rather than have a two hour class with a $25 fee, we are incorporating it into the Scrap IN on the first Saturday of the month.  This event is $5 and runs from 3-9 PM. While this class is open to all, I'm gearing this class for teens and young scrapbookers and will help anyone with a Project Me, Smash Book or Creative Chaos project.

For Scrapbooking/Scrap INs-We will continue to offer a monthly scrapbook class in which you will complete 2 double page spreads.  Kits are available so you will finish the project while you are in class. The cost is $25 and includes supplies other than adhesive or optional embellishments.

We will join the nation wide Scrap IN on the first Saturday of the month (see above in Journaling).  This class includes a flyer with a two page layout and card sample.  You will receive the kit to make the two page layout as part of your registration.

We're joining the nationwide Michael's Scrap In on the first Saturday and will continue our regular monthly crop on the third Sunday of the month.  This event is $5 and runs from 10:30 AM to 6:30 PM.

Additionally, we continue to offer Martha Stewart classes.  Each quarter we will offer Glitter, Punch around the Page and Crafters Clay.  These classes will rotate each month and repeat in the following quarter.

This new plan focuses on the things our customers ask for so I hope you'll find something on the schedule you like and join in.  Classes require a minimum of four participants, excluding crop and Scrap In but class may continue for fewer students at my discretion.

So,,,,,,,,,,, tell me what you think about these changes.  I'd love to hear from you.
