Welcome to The Inspiration Station

Dear Debra,

It's been a busy week or two here at the store with new products coming, attending a trade show and classes and making arrangements for guest instructors.  There's so much to tell I just don't know where to start!

As always, our teachers have great classes planned and you can read all about those below; however, many of you have been asking when we could get Nathalie from Magenta back because you love her.  I am happy to say that she will be driving through the area and making a stop at The Inspiration Station to teach a class and bring a trunk show of products on Wednesday, April 23rd from 6pm-9pm.

I will have the photos of the 3 cards in next week's newsletter but I suggest you not wait to sign up as space is limited and I expect the class to sell out quickly. The class is $35 per person and the store will be open during the class for everyone to shop the trunk show.

In other news, we are also expecting a visit from Tammie Wilson from Faber Castell on Thursday, May 15th.  I do not have specifics for the class yet, but you should plan to save the date for some Mixed Media Fun.


If you are looking for new product we just got our hands on the new Dylusion Spray Ink colors and the Mini Ink Blending Tools from Ranger. Check out the video below from Jen McGuire to see how great the mini tool is.


Project Life/ Pocket Style Scrapbooking
We have a monthly meet-up group for anyone interested in doing pocket style scrapbooking.  We are meeting thisSaturday, April 5th it is free to all to attend but in order to have enough space we ask everyone to pre-register.
