Hello!  Listed below are the classes and work sessions that are coming up in the next few months.  Interested in a particular topic or technique?  Get some friends together and we can schedule a class or workshop!

Classes are held at my home studio in Ridgewood.  Contact me for more details or to sign up!  And for those who are not in the local, northern NJ area… I
plan to add some online classes in the second half of the year!

Even though the kids are out of school for the summer, we can still get together and have fun being creative! Here are a bunch of great classes and events that I hope you’ll enjoy:

1) This Wednesday, July 11 – 2 events:

1a) My Digital Studio class: How to Use a Scrapbook Template at 10am & 2pm, $20

Perfect for new or newer MDS users, or those who have never used a template before. We’ll review:

  • the parts of a photobook template, including what can and cannot be changed in your own book and how to do it,
  • how to plan the book,
  • how to set it up your own book from the template

1b) Same day: MDS Work Session Wednesday July 11 from 11am to 2pm, $15

Bring your laptop (or possibly use one of mine – bring a flash drive) and work on your own MDS project. I’m available to answer questions as needed. Bring your lunch (or enjoy a complimentary PBJ). Coffee & tea is on me!

2) Backwards Workshop for experienced or new card stampers – Friday, July 20 at 7pm in New City, NY
This is a fun event at someone’s house, held by one of my fellow demonstrators. You move from table to table, working with the assistance of the teacher at the table as you make four fabulous cards that have all been designed by my friend Karen Barber and her daughter in law. Karen was my first demonstrator, and I have always loved her work – but at the time I didn’t realize she was famous within Stampin’ Up!

Cost is $30, with $15 going towards an order you can place that night. It’s about 45 minutes away and we can all carpool! Please let me know ASAP if you can attend or if you want to know more!

3) I am happy to offer additional MDS classes and Work Sessions over the summer, including a card class to prepare for the holiday season, but I know that lots of folks are away – please let me know if you’re interested in attending, and what your schedule is like! and keep an eye on your email!

4) Do you have a friend who might also enjoy learning about My Digital Studio? I am happy to offer a free demonstration of My Digital Studio, on Wednesday, July 25 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm. Coffee’s on me! I can add another date & time if this is not convenient for you. Let me know if you are interested, or just stop by! Bring a friend!

And also think about the free training I offer to get you up to speed if you either buy the program or download the 30 day free trial through me!

So please let me know what your schedule is over the summer and when you might like to get together. I’ll be sending out the other class dates for the next few months in the mid-month newsletter!
