600 cards!!!

Check out this picture of over 600 cards created by some of Harrisburg's craftiest crafters!!

These are cards that will be sent to our heroes overseas so they can send them to their friends and family back home. You can join us twice a month to create cards or create them at home and drop them by the store anytime. If you don't make cards, we accept donations. It costs $10 to ship a box of cards to the shippers here in the U.S. Then they have to ship the cards overseas. Luckily, the solders don't have to pay postage to send the cards home!

Go to the site for more information.

Happy crafting!

October Techniques 101 class - featuring Color Theory!

by Amy Patterson

Join me this month as we create a fun Halloween layout titled “Boo to You”. We will be using Stickles, ribbon and Creative Imagination papers. You will need 4-5 pictures of any fun Halloween event. We will also discuss some color theory techniques. Ever wonder how the layouts in the magazines seem to come together so well? How all the pictures seem to pop and the colors and embellishments work so well together? I have been doing some research for you and we will learn some of the tips and tricks to picking the right colors and embellishments. You will also learn how to use the Color Wheel and the difference between some of the different layout styles. Feel free to bring in those pictures you are having trouble deciding how to use or just bring in the next photos you are ready to crop and learn how to make them look their very best.

Please remember your basic class supplies:
12 inch trimmer
Wet and dry adhesive
Craft knife
Black pen

***You will also need a stapler, your craft mat, black ink, an ink applicator, Stickles in Diamond, Ice (or any clear, shiny Stickles) and Black Diamond Stickles, if you have it.***
