Mother’s Day Gifts Class!

With Mother’s Day coming up on May 9th, you are probably wondering what to get for Mom. Hint: Moms just LOVE gifts that are handmade by you with love. So if you’re looking for something great to make your mom that will let her know how much she is appreciated, come out and join us in a great afternoon where you will make everything you need to make this Mother’s day great for her! 


The cost of the class is $20 and you will leave with a card (with envelope), a shadow box “MOM” frame, a “MOM” post-it-note fridge magnet and a great bookmark – and all will remind her of you – because you made everything yourself!
We will be using all Stampin’ Up! products; the Big Shot and dies, punches, Stampin’ Pastels and Markers, Ribbons and pearls. You will also get to test out the brand new “Smooch Spritz” (coming out in the Summer Mini on May 1st) which adds a pearlized glitter to the projects!



What to bring with you:
  1. Adhesive  - if you have both glue and a 2-sided tape runner, please bring both. Otherwise, bring what you have
  2. Scissors


Everything else will be provided for you including all papers, inks, embellishments, accessories, magnet and frame. All of the papers will be pre-cut for you and all you have to do is stamp, punch, embellish and assemble the layouts. You will also have the opportunity to try out the Big Shot if you have never used it before.

Each layout will have several layers of paper and embellishments.

The class will be held on:  
Friday April 30th at 7:00 pm  *
AND  
Saturday May 1st at 1:00 pm *

The class will be about 3 hours long.

* Both classes will be making the same project – I am offering two days in order to accommodate those who cannot make it to one.

To attend this class you need to register by calling me at 204-294-4892 or by emailing me at ashleysokal@gmail.com by Wednesday April 28th to get directions and to pre-pay for the class. Please advise which date you wish to attend.

**** The fee includes the four projects, a drink and a snack at the event (please advise if you have any allergies). I am estimating that this will take about 3 hours to complete.

**** Please leave the kids at home (nursing babes are welcome).

Thank you for dropping by!
