I can not "Bear" to have you miss the next Card Workshop

It's been awhile since I've posted about my All You Can Make card workshops so I'd like to give you an update since I've moved my card "buffet" from a table to a wall. This new set up is working so well!  Going vertical makes it easier for my guests to select what card they would like to make.



Once a card is selected, the sample can be pulled down because they are conveniently mounted on the displays at the top with Velcro. You may notice that there are a couple empty spots -- I will be filling these with Christmas Cards before the next workshop! In fact, I will add a half dozen holiday cards by the November workshops and in December, the board will be nearly filled with HOLIDAY CARDS!


Beneath the cards on display, there are two rows of bags. These bags contain the card bases, envelopes, stamp set, papers, embellishments to make the card. They are numbered to match numbers that are on the back of the sample cards. They also contain a list of ink pads and other items from the "tool table" needed. Once you have gathered up the sample card, bag of materials and tools, you can make as many of the selected card as you'd like. At the workshop, you will have 2 full hours to make as many cards as you'd like!

Tonight I added kits for this adorable masculine card to the buffet. It is likely the last non-holiday card I add this year. It is made with the recently retired Jack paper and Cardmaking stamp + thin cut set. (Although offiicially retired, this set is still available to purchase!).


This stamp set is one of my favorites! As you can see, there are several other sentiments you could choose in place of the one I used. If you want to get really ahead, you could even make your Father's Day cards for next year!

If you live in the St. Louis/Arnold area, I'd love to have you join us at my next All You Can Make Card Workshop! I am hosting two each month through December.  If you can't make it to my card workshops, the card buffet wall is always open! You can make these cards a la carte for just $2.50 each during my crops and other events.

  1. What a great idea. I often have "leftover kits" from my card classes. May incorporate your ideas. Thanks for sharing.

    1. That is exactly how mine started. It's nice to have those left overs used rather than sitting in storage. It also is a really fun creative evening. Good luck!
