Wow!  Our October Calendar is packed with great new classes and events!  We look forward to the busy month ahead and hope that you can join us!

We are happy to welcome a new instructor at Precious Memories and hope that you will join Jacquie for some of her exciting new classes!  We are also offering a new daytime slot for those who are looking for something to do during the week as well as a new kid's class geared towards those aged 7 and up!

November 7th & 8th we are thrilled to welcome back our friend Julie Ebersole for a weekend of action packed Holiday Classes!
 
NEW INSTRUCTOR: JACQUIE LOISELLE
Jacquie has been scrapbooking for close to ten years and card making for a couple.  She joins our teaching staff
in October and is super excited to share her ideas with you.  She's become somewhat addicted to stamping and utilizing her Copic Markers.  She recently became a Copic Certified Designer and loves to help others learn about the amazing results you can get using the Copics.    She also loves creating chipboard albums and anything to do with Disney! 
 
Jacquie is an Office Manager by day but can never wait to get home to her in-house design studio.  You have probably seen her around Precious Memories or maybe while attending a class.   We hope you'll join Jacquie for some exciting new classes and are thrilled to welcome her to our team!

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.

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.

Once upon a time, I had no idea rubber stamps existed. Chuckle! Prior to staying home full-time with my children, and simultaneously becoming addicted to art-stamping, I was a high school Spanish teacher.
My cousin had always sent these beautiful hand-made cards. "I stamped it myself," she would say. I would look at them, marvel, and scratch my head. I didn't "get it". Then, one day, over 14 years ago, I walked into a stationary store and spotted some stamps. Hmmmm. On the racks were RubberStampMadness Magazines. Hmmmmmm. Yes, yes, I am a bit slow, but as I flipped through the magazines and kept looking at the stamps, I finally "got it"--got what my cousin meant!
 
Evidently, there was an underground movement of people--everyday people like myself--who were all making cards and whatnot with stamps--RUBBER STAMPS!!!

For 10 years, I demonstrated and taught for a direct-sales stamp company, and during that time, and since, I have been fortunate to have many of my designs and several articles appear in popular trade publications, including Paper Crafts, Stamp It, Scrap & Stamp Arts, Stampington's Take Ten and Stamper's Sampler, Card Maker, Gift Maker (formerly Paper Works), and Cards magazines.

After 3 years as the Design Team Coordinator for Splitcoaststampers.com, the world's largest online stamping
community, I stepped down in March 2008 to accept a full-time position at A Muse Artstamps (amuseartstamps.com), a wondermous rubber stamp company based out of Seattle, WA, where I had been Lead Instructor and Senior Designer for the last 5 years. Today, I am thankful to serve as the company's Creative Teams Director.

I am tickled to meet so many people, not only through the classes I teach, but around the globe, through the world-wide web, who are just as crazy about the art of rubber stamping as I am--and cards are still my favorite thing to create!

Oh, and I do love a good appletini every now and then . . . *wink!*
