Look what a great review we got from "Ingenious Inkling"!

SO glad you had a good time and friendly experience!

That's our goal!!

Tonight's crop is SOLD OUT, but there are still a couple seats left for next Friday night!
Give us a call! They have been filling up FAST!!
Oh so much FUN!!

Just $5 and you get snacks, a drink, and 15% off your entire purchase!!! Not gettin' THAT anywhere else!

The Garage Sale is COMING SOON to Scrapaganza! Last chance to sign up! Well over 30 sellers signed up already!

Check out Wendy!!!

Here is a video that will give you a preview of what you will see if you take her class!!
(If you haven't heard-Wendy is coming to Scrapaganza April 3rd and 4th for three classes!
This entry I am highlighting the Funky Flowers Class!!)

Funky Flowers Description and Supply list for class!!

Here's the juicy details...
We'll make 6 flowers using stamps, distress inks, grungeboard and the coolest new product...grungePAPER. We'll embellish them with products from Maya Road, Tim's Idea-ology and we'll use some distress stickles and some Perfect Pearls too, for a little bling!
We'll all make the same 6 flowers, but you have the option to make them the color of your choice, by using any distress ink color. So be thinking about the colors you'd like, if you have a special project/gift in mind. You can also customize them by using your choice of background stamps.
You'll leave with 6 different flowers which will make the perfect embellishment for your cards, scrapbook pages, frames, gift bags or gift boxes. They also look great on journals & tote bags or you can add a pin back & actually wear one.
Add one to a jar candle for another great gift idea. There are tons of possibilities for your creations.
These flowers are really fun & they were a huge hit @ CHA.
I hope you can join me and get inky!
ps...I'll bring all new samples from CHA for show & tell...
