Celebrate Spring  NEW!
Instructor: Colleen Heidrich
Class Fee: 15.00
Supply Fee: $7.00
 
Come and celebrate spring with some layouts!  This is a technique based class where you'll complete 2 double page layouts.  The focus will be on using your patterned paper to its fullest including using the actual patterns themselves to create some pop in your layouts!  We'll be doing some distressing, paper piecing, and piercing as well as using glitter, Glossy Accents, punches, die cuts and more!  Come on out for an evening full of fun!  All supplies included

 

Copic Colouring with Stamping Bella: Part II  NEW!
Instructor: Tobi Crawford
Class Fee: $15.00      Supply fee: $5.00
All new images were just released by Stamping Bella and we will explore unique ways to colour and alter them including paper tole and adding "bling." In addition to making 4 cards, you will continue your learning of colouring with Copic markers by using them on all of the cards. This class is best suited for students who have experience with copic markers, and/or who have taken the instructional classes offered at Precious Memories. You are welcome to bring your own markers to the class.  All supplies included.

Copic Workshop: Level I          NEWLY DESIGNED!
Instructor: Tobi Crawford
Class Fee: $15.00  Supply fee: $5.00
Consider this your first introduction to everything Copic. If you find yourself wondering what papers to use, what ink, what end to use? Then this class is the first logical step. This class is even for those who aren't sure about these markers, and maybe just want to try them out! You will use the store's markers to get some hands-on experience. You will colour some stamped images for you to take home and use on cards, but note that you will not be making any cards in this class; this is all about the process!  All Supplies Included.

Copic Workshop: Level II         NEWLY DESIGNED!
Instructor: Tobi Crawford
Class Fee: $15.00  Supply fee: $5.00
This is the second level of classes dedicated to learning all about Copic markers. If you've taken Copic I then you are ready for this class, OR if you feel like you have a handle on paper and ink selection, as well as general care for your markers (refilling, nibs etc) then you will feel at home in this class. We will start to "play" a little more in this class by learning some advanced techniques like direct-to-rubber stamping, playing with the blender solution, airbrushing and so on with the store's markers. Like the Level I Workshop, you will not make cards, but will hone your colouring skills with some images to take home and use on cards later! All Supplies Included.

From Sketch to Scrapped  NEW!
Instructor: Colleen Heidrich
Class Fee: 15.00        Supply Fee: $5.00
In this class, we're going to take a sketch (this month from Ally Cope at SoSketchy.blogspot.com) and complete a double page layout in class.  The first thing we'll do is choose papers that'll compliment your pictures and I'll be there to help you do that.  Then we'll talk about the design, how you might want to change it to make it your own and how to simply get that 2-pager done!  You're encouraged to bring pictures to help you pick your papers and so that you can go home with something finished. 
Basic supplies for the layout will be included and then you can purchase any extras that night that you might want to add to your layout as well.  I'll help with this too!

You'll be able to play with different ways to use patterns and design. We'll also talk about what you could add in the way of embellishments if you wanted to add to your layouts.  All supplies included.

Instructor: Tobi Crawford

OR, are you an absolute beginner and just want to jump in and get started?  Well then, this class is for all of you! I will be at your disposal to help you put a layout together over the span of 2 hours, as well as help you with any questions or curiosities you might have along the way.

Don't know how to use ribbon? Stickers? Chipboard? Die Cuts? We will incorporate those mysteries into your layout. An added bonus: you will be able to shop for items in the store as you need them for your layout using your class discount!  Please bring photos.

New Instructor!
 
Shannon loves making cards - simple cards that are stylish, but oh-so-easy to create.  A little bit of pattered paper here, a splash of coordinating cardstock there, a stamp, and an embellishment or two - and voila - the perfect recipe for a simple, stunning card!  Shannon hopes that her cards will inspire students to try this clean and simple approach.  You will see how less really can be more!  She is excited to be able to share her passion for making cards with you!
 
But Shannon has another reason for teaching at Precious Memories--She wants to give back.  Shannon will be donating 100% of her earnings to the British Columbia Childhood Cancer Parents Association (bcccpa.org).  This is a wonderful organization that helps oncology families who struggle financially to try to make ends meet.  Shannon became familiar with this charity after learning about a 12 year old friend of her nephew's from Cloverdale who bravely battled cancer for 6 out of his 12 years, and sadly passed away on New Year's Eve.  This young man's parents are directors of BCCCPA and in his honour, Shannon has set a personal goal for herself to raise $1,000 for the charity this year through her class earnings.
 
Come on out to one (or more!) of her classes to support a great cause and to make some fabulous cards!
