Welcome to The Inspiration Station
In honor of this weekends stamp show we are having our our special. We are open regular hours all weekend. Stop in and support your local stamp store!
Summer time means travel and lots of papercraft artists are hitting the road and some will be stopping at the Inspiration Station to teach classes. Mark your calendars and make plans to register early.
First up is Nathalie Metivier from Magenta Rubber Stamps! Last time she was here, the ladies persuaded (ok, begged) her to come back to teach this class! You may need to ask for the day off from work to take it because it is a 6 hour class and due to her schedule, only available on Monday, June 9th. Trust me, it is worth taking a day off for!
Seating is limited - call today to register!
Also in the same week (sorry, but that's how the schedule worked); Eileen Hull from Sizzix will be bringing her Papertrail Tour to the Inspiration Station on Wed., June 11th.
Learn tips and techniques from die designer Eileen Hull using ScoreBoards dies-specially designed to cut and score thick materials like matboard and chipboard. These dies are unique to Sizzix and produce a satisfyingly sturdy project that may
enjoyed for years.
There are so many ways to use dies- and often they work in ways you would not expect! This may look like an art canvas but it is a "4 x 4" functioning box that can
be used to hold cookies, jewelry, treats and special gifts. Use as a home decor piece or as a favor box- the choice is yours! We will decorate it as a canvas but always
looking outside the box for ways to use your dies. Eileen will have vintage suitcases full of samples to inspire you. Bring your cameras!
You will have a chance to get inky with Eileen's new ColorBox Blends™- a new ink, applicator and reinker all in one- and hear how a trip to the dollar store gave
birth to a product line!
Wed., Jun 11
10am-noon or 6pm-8pm
Eileen will also be available from 1pm-3pm for a FREE Demo of her products! Make plans to stop in and see.
