Denise and I made up a schedule of classes tonight. We will be having our card class this Sunday, October 4th, of course. On October 18th, we will have a class featuring three more holiday cards -- winter, Christmas, and Christmas thank you note. On October 25th, we will be doing a gift bag, gift card holder, and gift tag. On November 1st, we will have a class to make a two-page layout with a Christmas theme. November 15th, we will make a cookie box with gift card and another Christmas card. Please email me to register at SRoss3456@aol.com as soon as possible -- we are making the kits now. Class size is limited.
On December 6th, we are having a cookie swap! You will be asked to bring a copy of your recipe and one dozen cookies for each person participating in the swap. We are planning to make a quick mini cookbook with these recipes. More details about the swap are forthcoming in a later post. Please register by November 1st. You can email me or stop by the office (Hensley & Ross)to see Denise. As soon as you register, we will provide you with your recipe cards/template for your page. Also, please let us know what cookie you will be making when you register -- we are trying to avoid duplication. You can make any kind of cookie you like. It would be a good idea to chose a cookie that freezes well. At this point, we are planning to have the cookie swap at the Methodist Church in Horse Cave. Pending any activities at the church, we may have to move this date by a day or two. More about this later.
I would like to do one more class before the holidays featuring another two-page layout. Still pondering the date. I love cards, etc., but I would like to have a few Christmas pages ready for photos by Christmas week. If I have my pages in mind, I am much more likely to remember to snap the picture!
As you know if you have been coming to the class, Denise and I have been collecting tools and supplies that belong to the club. We would like you to be able to use these items to make your cookie recipe page or any project you have going. We will be at Dennison's an hour before class this Sunday if you would like to come early to use these supplies. We will also have two Cuttlebugs with lots of folders available for you to use. BYOC. (Bring Your Own Cardstock!) If you have any questions, just email me or call me at 270-774-2666.
After the cookie swap, we are planning to take a break until January. In January, we will begin our new recipe book. We have changed the format a little bit -- for the next book, we will be doing seasonal recipes for that month. That will give us a chance for some holiday treats and some good home cooking. The new book will be an 8.5 x 11 book. If you want to participate, you can pick up your own scrapbook between now and then. You might also want to pick up extra page refills to go in your binder at that time. Readily available at WalMart, Scrapbook Village, Hobby Lobby, etc.
Also in January, I would like to start doing a two-page layout class each month. I think we all use 12 x 12 pages. Email me if you are interested in the layout of the month club.
Things get busy this time of year. I just wanted to give you a heads up on our schedule so that you can make your plans.
Hope to see you Sunday! swr
