It’s October Technique Workshop Time!




It feels like forever ago that I planned this workshop, but it’s finally here.

We are going to explore the Bokeh Dot technique.  You say it like Poka Dot but it’s not a poka dot it’s a Bokeh Dot. (I originally thought it was like Bo-Kay, Oh! I don’t know!) Anyway, however you say it we are going to try to do it and maybe it will be fun.
We are also going to do a spotlight card for Halloween. 

                       Examples of Bokeh 





We’ll make a sample and instruction card for each plus 2 cards each for each technique.
Fee $25 includes a 6x8” scrapbook page protector that will fit into one of our customizable scrapbooks.
Thursday, October 25:  12:00 – 3:30pm
or 7:00 – 9:00 pm

*Stamp Camp/Class/Workshop Cancellation Policy – If you cancel your reservation at least 48 hours in advance of the event there will be no cost to you.  If you cancel within that 48 hours, I will try and place someone from the waiting list and if that works there will be no charge to you; otherwise you will be responsible for the class fee.  (If a stamp camp - you will receive the material packet with pictures (by email) to make your projects.)  Not all stamping will be done for you, so you may need to adjust the project slightly using what stamps you have available.  Or you can choose to purchase the purchase requirement for the event in merchandise from Lois to meet your commitment.
If no purchase requirement is listed for the specific event (such as Card Classes), you must purchase 2 times the cost of the class/stamp camp/event in merchandise, or simply pay the fee for the event, to meet your commitment.  
If event is cancelled by me – I will notify you and a full refund will be given of any

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT
Introducing the Stamparatus! 

Ya’ know how you sometimes need to line up your Clear-mounted or Photopolymer stamps just right, so they line up perfectly every time?  You can get close with clear blocks but not perfect enough to repeat or add to with the two- or three-step stamps?  Well, the “Stamparatus” is the latest tool added to the Stampin’ Up!  Check it out in the 2018/19 Annual Catalog or on my SU Demonstrator website!  Next month we will begin to offer additional supplies like, small grid paper, extra magnets, foam pads and additional plates.  I use mine a lot, especially when lining up some of our new multi-step photopolymer stamps.  Contact me to “road-test” it.
