Social Stamping @ A Taste of Dalyellup

Social Stamping has gone on the road!  Reinvigorated after an amazing OnStage event, Nanna Papercraft and I decided to try something new (to us) to share our love of stamping and support the local cafe.

Image may contain: text

For the month of December, we are offering Social Stamping sessions at the Taste of Dalyellup cafe making Christmas cards.  These sessions are different in style from the classes I’ve run from home.  The cards are somewhere between a beginner & casual crafter level making it perfect for any level of experience.  Crafters get to create one or two cards plus enjoy a hot drink.  All materials are supplied with samples to copy, but there’s no limits on the creativity!

These are the cards we made on week 1.  With thanks to Lesley Jendra and Carolyn King for their inspiration.

Last week (week 2) we created these cards, inspired by designs by Tamie Ackerson and Sue Jackson.

Join us at the cafe at Dalyellup Shopping Centre – A Taste of Dalyellup.

Class Schedule – Feb, March & April 2017

Can you believe it’s February already???  I’m not sure where January went – we were too busy having fun to notice!

But, it’s back to reality now with school back in full swing and our routine most of the way to being under control.

You’ve been asking about classes for 2017 – here’s the details!

This year I am running 3 classes each month.

All classes will be held in my cozy little craft cottage

{well, the kitchen table in my house but we’ll pretend we’re in an awesome craft cottage!}

There are 2 types of classes…

    • In this class you will make cards that are fun & creative
    • It’s perfect for all levels of card making and an awesome way to build up your birthday card supplies.
    • The cost for this class is $15 and it will take us about 2 hours.
  • TUESDAY SKILL BUILDER – 9.30am & 1pm (repeated session)
    • In this card you will learn techniques, folds & ways to use products
    • The class will usually contain 1 ‘fancy’ card or project and 2 standard cards
    • This class is perfect for crafters with an interest in card making as a hobby to build up your skills
    • The cost for this class is $20 and it will take us about 2.5 hours

Classes are limited to 4 participants per session – due to the size of the cottage!

If you see a class or 2 you’re interested in please email me to reserve your place & I’ll be in touch with payment details.  Your seat in the class is only confirmed when I receive payment.

If the dates I’ve set for classes don’t suit you, please feel free to contact me to suggest a weekend class or in-home workshop.

Weekend Classes are Back!

Well, life got a bit crazy in the middle there didn’t it?

There’s no chance of it slowing down as we roll into Christmas, but I have taken some time to look at my weekends and have made plans for some classes.

I’ve been missing them as much as you have!  So, I am pleased to be able to announce that weekend classes are back!!!

There’s only one weekend class a month* until the end of the year – all with different theme.

*September has 3 sittings of the same class.

Each class is limited to 4 people and payment is required on RSVP.  You can secure your place in the class by emailing me.

2016 Class Schedule - Kelly Kent

So, what’s in store at each class?

In September, I am sharing the Holiday Catologue with you.

There’s 12 places available across 3 classes (3 sittings of the same class).  You’ll get to touch, feel and play with the new products, take home a copy of the holiday catalogue (if you don’t have one already) and make 3 of your own catalogue inspired creations.

These classes are 1 hour long and $10 per person.

Class Flyer - September

In October, we’re setting up for a class of deluxe proportions.

You’ll learn how to make shaker cards in 3 different styles and take home the essentials you’ll need to create your own shaker cards.

This class is 3 hours long and $50 per person.  As part of the class fee, you’ll receive a full pack of sequins, window sheet and foam adhesive strips (value = $33).

Class Flyer - October

In November, it’s all about getting you Christmas ready with a ‘make in multiples’ class.

You’ll create 12 cards in total – 4 each of 3 designs.

This class is 3 hours long and $25 per person.

Class Flyer - November

And in December, we’ll be making gifts that are perfect for family & friends you see over the following weeks.  The class will include a decorated candle, notebook and box (though this combination may change if I see something I can’t resist pop up between now and then!).

This class is 2.5 hours long and $30 per person.

Class Flyer - December

Classes with less than 3 bookings may be cancelled.  Registered participants of any cancelled class will receive a full refund.

Classes longer than 2 hours will include a tea/coffee break, so please advise if you have any dietary preferences when enrolling.

Don’t forget to email me to book the classes you are interested in.  Due to the small class sizes, they tend to fill up quickly!

New stampers are always welcome – my classes are suitable for all skills levels.

I can’t wait to craft with you all in the coming months.

Beautiful Handmade Cards You Can Make Yourself – February Class Schedule

Class Schedule 2016 - Kelly Kent, Bunbury WA,

My blog stats tell me that almost every week, someone lovely Googles ‘beautiful handmade cards you can make yourself’ and ends up at my blog.  This makes me so happy to know that I can help you to make your own beautiful cards.

A large part of the Stampin’ Up! joy for me is sharing with you.  When I first started using Stampin’ Up! products, Pinterest, Google searches and favourite blogs were my saviour – with endless ideas on how to use my new products.

As time goes on, it still forms part of my creative process – there are so many ideas out there that ping around in my brain and help me with layouts, colour combinations, inspiration and unique ways to use the products in my Stampin’ Up! collection.  And sometimes I just love a card that someone else has shared that I want to make it myself for the joy of creating something so beautiful.

If you live in the Bunbury area, I’d like to invite you to attend a class where you can see & play with products in person, take home beautiful cards and meet other ladies (men also most welcome) that share your crafting passion.

My class schedule for February 2016:

  • Tuesday 9th February, 9.30am general class $20 *FULL
  • Thursday 11th February, 7pm project set $15 * FULL
  • Saturday 20th February, 9.30am general class $20 * 2 places available

All classes require an RSVP by email and payment to confirm your place.  Please note that places are limited due to the small space I have available – it’s cosy!

Please note: I’d like my customers and demonstrators within my team to have first option for booking into my classes.  Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from other teams are welcome to express interest in classes and will be offered any places that are unbooked 2 days prior to the class date.

All items you will need to complete your projects are provided.  You are welcome to ask to use a specific Stampin’ Up! product, technique or to make something you’ve been inspired by – please let me know in advance and I will do what I can to make it happen.  If you don’t make any requests, we’ll be making what piques my interest at the time of the class.

General classes include 3 projects (a combination of cards & 3D items).  Allow 2-1/2 – 3 hours including a break for morning tea.

Project classes include a coordinating card & 3D item.  Allow 1-1/2 – 2 hours including a quick supper.

Let the 2016 class fun begin!  Kelly x
