Classes & Crops

Hello!
I've had a busy week, and I haven't stopped yet!

This summer I am doing what I can to earn some extra cash. I am ready to move! I've lived at my in-laws, off and on, for 5 years now and I am
ripping my hair out. So I am basically over working myself, any way possible to save up enough money to, at least, get us into an apartment. :)

I went and checked out the apartment a couple days
ago, and I am super excited! My husband and I go back today so that he can look too! We do not pay rent right now- so it would be a huge difference for us- but what I go through here on a daily basis- is worth paying rent somewhere else!

So... on to the 'Stampin' News'

Times a tickin' to get your hands on it
ems on our Last Chance List.
June 30th is your deadline, and our products are going fast!

If you like our current In Colors, my advice to you- get them now, while you still can!!!
(Baja Breeze ink refills are gone, and I'm sure the others will be gone just as quick!)

Class
es
I still have 7 spots open for my Cheers 2 You class. The class consists of 5 cards using the Cheers To You stamp set for $20. In this class you will learn 5 different techniques and get one last chance to use our current in colors!
Kits for the class can be purchased for $25- for those that live out of the area.

July classes- to be announced.

Coming up in August-
I will be teaching a couple classes at the Crafty Scrappers Crop.
Here is a preview of the scrapbook layout I will be teaching.
