I'm set and ready to go, but so far, no one has signed up for the classes that Joann Corporate thinks their customers in this area wants to learn.
It's frustrating -- I only need ONE customer to teach the class -- but so far, no go.
Frankly, I think it is that the classes aren't ones that seasoned crafters might want. My frustrations echo that of the store's Education Coordinator; unfortunately, there's nothing she can do to override the Corporate decisions -- she is but a cog in the wheel. So, oh no!, she quit!!
This is what I'd like to teach: using a favorite paper pack to make a set of cards from that single pack. For this pack, I went to my Joann Store and bought one super paper pack by Kathy Davis. Actually, I bought both of the 12x12" pack, and the 6x6" pack. I also bought a package of Kathy Davis glitter epoxy dot stickers and inspiration cards.
For this collection of eight cards, I used a few sheets of the 6x6" pack, 4 pieces of white 12x12" paper, and some of the dots and inspiration cards:
Aren't they pretty? They are all 4x6", and I plan to make a gift box for them to give them to the "retiring" Joanne Store Education Coordinator.
Here they are individually:
|Featuring white Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon|
|I also used white gel pen and a Martha Stewart Edge Punch|
|Foam dots also used|
|Lovebug Creations Caddy Blue Rumple Ribbon, and CTMH stamps|
(for the "Shower of" and butterfly); foam tape also used
|Lovebug Creations Green Leaves Rumple Ribbon, |
Martha Stewart Edge Punch; foam dots also used
I love this beautiful set of cards with the fresh colors and clean design.
When I purchased the Kathy Davis paper at Joanne, the cashier told me that Kathy Davis was once a teacher at Hatboro-Horsham High School, a local school ... and has since become quite an enterprise selling a whole line of goods, including inspirational posters, giftware, tableware, linens, books, etc. AND her studio is local ... about 5 minutes from my home ... as is her only retail store!! OMG! I WILL be visiting soon!!
