****Tis the Season Scrapbooking Class
TUESday, November 20th @ 9:30am OR 6:45 pm @ my home
RSVP by Tues, November 6th 

For November's Scrapbook class, we will be using the beautiful paper collection called “Tis the Season"



We are going to change things around a bit this month.
I've heard from a few of you, that you weren't too excited about the larger dimensional items in the WYW Tis the Season kit...so I've decided to create my own kit for this class....but still creating the same pages from the CTMH art department. 

We will be using the following products for the first set of 3 layouts for the class I will be hosting.  You will most likely need additional cardstock for the 4th set of layouts...details for this will arrive closer to the actual class date. 

Items needed for class...

**Tis the Season paper pack (X7239B)
**Tis the Season coordinating Cardstock (X7239D)
**Tis the Season Complements (X7239C)
**White Glitter Paper (Z3237)
**OPTIONAL** 
Winter Flurries Thin Cuts (Z4236)
(if you don't have these...plan for a little extra time to cut them during class time) 


ANYONE is welcome to come to the classeven if you are not a part of my Hostess Club. 

  Please RSVP by November 6th  OR contact me after this date to see if there is still room available for you to join us! 

  Come join us for our evening of CRAFTING!!  It's always a JOY to be together & this will allow you to see how EASY it is to get some scrapbooking accomplished!!



Here are the rest of the layouts we'll be creating together. 

The WYW Tis the Season workshop kit cost is $35.95 (prior to shipping & tax) and the changes I made to "my" workshop kit gives as a cost of $35.35.  

If you'd like to add on the ADDITIONAL Winter Flurries Thin Cuts, you may do that as well. :) 



 >>>>After creating these layouts…you then can choose to use the rest of your supplies for whatever you choose!  Maybe even a few handmade Christmas cards :) 

For each Scrapbooking Class when we use the WYW kits...I create an additional layout with the "extra" pieces!  

  As always when I create a 4th set of layouts, we will need to add a few extra sheets of base pages of paper, as I will teach you how to cut papers that CTMH to be used for base pages.  This will give us EXTRA layout designs!!

If you'd like to create this 4th layout, you can bring a long a few extra sheets of  paper (I'll tell you what colors when the RSVP's are in) OR you can always purchase them by the sheet from me too.


For all HOSTESS CLUB members...November's WYW class you will need...


**Tis the Season paper pack (X7239B)
**Tis the Season coordinating Cardstock (X7239D)

PAST EVENTS



Well ladies...I have some EXCITING news!! 
I have CHANGED my Fall Retreat Date to September 6-8th instead of the original Oct dates I had previously announced.

Our lodging will be in TWO locations...
1. Beechwood motels available. 
These will be "First come, first serve". Room prices change according to how many people are in your motel room & range from approx. $190-$245 per person... this price includes EVERYTHING for the entire weekend.

2. Beautiful Log Cabins (newly renovated...they are like new!) 
They each have 3 different bathrooms right inside!! There are 7 bunk beds & 1 queen in each cabin. Bottom bunks will be first come, first serve.  (approx. price $150 includes everything for entire weekend)


We will be scrapbooking in the Chestnut Meeting Room, which is DIRECTLY below those of you in the motel style rooms above. This meeting room has great Wi-Fi , great lighting, 6 ft. tables & it was just a wonderful, cozy, happy atmosphere! 


Since last year's FALL retreat was a bit smaller attendance wise (23 people attended) - I have only rented one meeting room at this time.(Chestnut) 

*****HOWEVER***** 
.I do have the option to rent the other meeting room & and to do that we would need a "regular" sized papercrafting group of 38-45 people.  So spread the word & let your friends know about this papercrafting time together! 



If you'd like more details, I've created a EMAIL update & you can find that by clicking this link below....

I will be HAPPY to email you the registration form & flyer for our weekend together. 
 
Spread the word & SAVE the date!!! I'm SO EXCITED that this has worked out, and we can have the Beechwood Lodging & Meeting room that's in the same building! 

Thanks so much for your continued EXCITEMENT about these events together!! It's only because of EACH of YOU that we can make this happen...Wahoo!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›❤️๐Ÿ’œ
