Events!

 Effective immediately and until further notice, all classes are ONLINE ONLY.  You will still have the same great, fun, crafty experience but I will teach the classes via Zoom, Facebook, or both.  When necessary color tutorials and photos will be provided.  I have been running online classes for about a year and half now and we can have lots of fun with them while being a bit safer with regard to COVID.  I hope you continue to attend classes during this period, and I thank you in advance for your support!



I have a passion for papercrafting, and for teaching and connecting with other crafters.  I would love it you would join me for an in-person or online event!  You can find more information about all of these events on this site, on my Facebook business page, or by calling me!  I'm happy to speak with you about any questions you may have.  Below is a description and signup options for the in-person events as well as my class policies.  Thanks in advance for your interest - can't wait to see you! 
Please check back often as I'll be adding more classes.

Note:  you must register and pay in advance for all classes.  Classes do fill up, especially during the holidays, so please sign up asap.  Also, please read my Class Policies in full at the bottom of this page.  With regard to in-person classes we will proceed with them at this point but if COVID protocols change, classes will convert to to-go, online classes when possible.  I make every attempt to make all classes, regardless of format, fun and successful for everyone.




Stamp Camp – a class for all skill levels.  Usually once a month, offered on a consecutive Friday and Saturday. Make 4 All-Occasion cards with envelopes while using beautiful, current Stampin’ Up! Products.  Must bring your own adhesives, or I will have them for purchase. Approx 2-3 hrs. Cost is $18 or FREE with a $25 order of product (order must be placed at class, your $18 fee will be refunded at that time). 





2022 Desk or Wall Calendar - a class for casual/avid crafters.  Available as an in-person OR to-go class.  This will be a very fun project for gift giving.  You won't have to choose between giving away or keeping your calendar as this class includes TWO calendars!  Calendar pages will be approx 4" x 6" and will include either an easel for desk use, or ribbon and binder rings for hanging.  Can't decide?  Choose one of each!  Cost is $45 for two calendars, add the featured Days to Remember stamp set for an additional $15. Shipping will apply to to-go options (estimate is $8) or you may choose porch pickup.

Retreats – duration, themes, and skill level vary.  Do you have an idea for a retreat?  Let’s talk!


Host Party - an event where you plan the location, attendees, and food, and I provide the entertainment!  G-rated of course.  I will bring samples and a project to your event.  YOU will receive the hostess benefits generated at the party.  It’s a great way to get together with friends post-Covid, add to your SU! Stash and gather around a fun and unique event.  You can also have an online host party - the choice is yours. 


Payment, Cancellation and Other Class Policies

Stamp Camps, Pumpkin Parties, or other classes where the preorder is minimal:

Prepayment is not required, however no later than ONE WEEK prior to the event, I must have a firm commitment.  At that point I will begin cutting supplies, and you have “bought” your supplies at that point.

What happens if I don’t attend the event?  I will expect prompt payment of the flat fee or a minimum qualifying product order, via Paypal or as an online order, the day of the event.  I will put together a kit of your supplies for you and will supply photos of the finished projects.  Due to Stampin’ Up! Policy I CANNOT give you stamped images.  You will be free to use whatever stamps you like on the projects.  


Preorder-Intensive Events such as Sampler Classes, BINGO, Product-Based Classes, Retreats etc.

Prepayment will be required to RSVP for a spot in the class and classes will be filled on a first paid, first served basis.

What happens if I don’t attend the event?  You will receive all products and tutorial materials that were included as part of the class.  


What if I’m sick the day of an event?  We are working closely together, with products that we all touch.  Sorry, but I don’t allow people that are sick to attend classes.  The above policies apply.

What about kids?  Lots of your fellow stampers attend my classes to have a break and just have “ME” time, so no kids.  People 16 or older may attend as paying customers.


I know that life happens – our plans sometime change.  When this happens in your life, just give me a call so I can do the best job possible for you.  Please remember that I genuinely want all of you to have a fun and inspiring time at my events.
