Coming Soon to a Classroom Near You (if it’s not near you, you could come here) . . .

We start getting calls and e-mails in the spring – “What’s going on in the store the week leading up to the Cincinnati convention?”  And we don’t have a clue – at that point, we’re barely working on the schedule for the Spring Spectacular at the end of April.  We realize that Connie and Kat work far in advance and have the class schedule for Cincinnati set up months in advance.  But we never have.

That said . . .


We take great pride in announcing that Ken Oliver will lead off the Stamping Gala in our store with two classes on Monday, August 1!

The classes are Stitched Watercolor Cards (10:00-1:00)  for $47 and Color Burst Journal (3:00-7:00) for $52 – and if you’re going to be in our area that week, you’ll want to sign up quickly!


And if you’re going to be in lovely Dayton, Ohio this weekend, the store is having a Summer Spectacular, with specials every day (including Sunday!), and three classes with Anthony Gilbert from Anthony’s Paper Craft.  Anthony has set up a class for almost every taste . . .


Interactive Stamping Using Stamps by Judith & Heather on Friday, June 24 from 3:00-5:00 ($25)


The introduction of Anthony’s new Geometrics Collection on Saturday, June 25 from 1:30-4:30 ($25)


And Stampscapes Scenery Stamping on Sunday, June 26 from 1:00-3:30 ($30)

Now I’m done and you can get busy checking out these great classes – if you want to go to one page on our site where you’ll find links to all of them – try this one!


  1. HEADS UP, GREG!!!! Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp sets are coming and expected to be available to retail customers 2nd half of July 2016 - yes, next months!! I want to preorder these so pretty please can you get these up on your webstore for us? Sizzix making the dies, too, but I didn't hear a date for the dies to be available. Learned about this tonight on an Online Card Class chat with Tim (Mario spilled the beans LOL)..........

  2. OMG -- I have been in love with Ken Oliver's Color Burst watercolors for over a year! I didn't think he'd be this close for a class (there's a weekend being planned at a shop in Paducah, KY, for later this year -- closest he's been) so now I have to plan to take Monday off from work, too! I have seen his stitched cards online and am dying to work with them!
