Foil Class at the Tricks and Treats Crop

You can pay for classes here!  (this link will take you to Michelle James Designs)  If you would like to finish reading this post about the class there is another link at the bottom!

Well, I said this Foil class would be up on the blog and Sunday.  I am just making it under the wire.  

This class is a technique based class.  I will be showing you a couple of foil techniques for cards and fabric.

Believe Card

For this card we will be using the We R Memory Keepers Heat Pen tool.  

The pen is a new tool designed to be used with stencils and the foil.  I created the gold swirls on the background of the card using this tool.  The product shown in the photo above is the starter kit that comes with 20 4x6 sheets of the foil in several colors.  It really is a nifty tool.

Snowflake Decor Pillow

This technique uses the foil and an iron and you won't want to miss it.  The pillow form is not included but the outer "envelope" pillow case will be.  I know... exciting right?

Don't miss out on this great class.  It will be held on Saturday, October 31st at 1:30 pm at the Emmetsburg Catholic Parish Hall.  

As with all of the classes, you do not need to be registered for the crop in order to attend the classes.  They are for everyone.  

This class will be $15.

Tricks & Treats Crop This Halloween!

Are you ready for another "fang-tastic" Micheggy event? Michelle and Peggy are putting together a delighfully spooky, ghoulishly fun scrapbooking event on October 30th AND 31st! That's right. Friday night and all day Saturday to get your craft on! Here are the details:

Those of you who have attended our events in the past will see a few new things on this list! We are giving you the option of Friday, Saturday, or BOTH, whatever fits your scheduling needs! We are also adding in some goofy stuff like a costume contest on Friday, and Michelle and Peggy are both clearing out their craft rooms and will have LOTS of garage sale items and everyone's favorites...Trick or Treat Grab Bags! We are hoping our friend Debbie from Outlet Store in Estherville will be able to set up a booth as well, and as soon as we get word from her, we will let you know!

We are hosting the event at the Catholic Church's Parish Center, located at 2003 Broadway at the south end of Emmetsburg. Lots of wonderful space, easy entry, and convenient location! 

We have more surprises (and lots of prizes!) up our witchy sleeves, so check back for more details, but get your registrations in soon. We do have limited space!

Hope to see you there!

National Scrapbooking Day 2015 Crop

We like these crop things...a lot. Apparently. We keep doing them, anyway.
THIS time around, we are lucky enough to have space in the cropping room at The OUTLET Store in Estherville! Details can be found in our super-cute themed flyer, but if you want to just read the low-down, here's what you need to know:

Saturday, May 2nd
OUTLET Store cropping room
$50 per person includes:

  • 14 Hours of uninterrupted cropping time (OK, minor interruptions like prizes and stuff.)
  • Lunch and dinner
  • $20 value attendance prize (It's good!)
  • Games, prizes, and FUN! 
In addition to all this fun-having, The OUTLET Store has "shopportunities" galore. They carry lots of staple items such as 100+ colors of cardstock, many varieties of adhesives, storage options, lots of themed collections, Memory Box Dies, and tons of Project Life supplies. If you have any special requests for products, let us know, and we will see if Debbie can order them in for you.

Rumor has it that there will be more than this included, but I guess you'll just have to sign up and attend to see! 

If you have any questions, please call Peggy at 712-298-0105, or email her at

We. Can't. Wait. 

See you soon,

Micheggy Reclaimed on November 1st!

We are super excited about our upcoming Scrapbook/Crafting Crop on November 1st, which is exactly one month away! If you've signed up, thank you! We look forward to seeing you and catching up. If you haven't signed up yet, we do still have space available, so please send in your payments asap. We would like to have our numbers finalized by Oct. 14th so we have time to order FABULOUS prizes and DELICIOUS food for you, and we want to make sure we get the right amount.

We've also been planning a cool (FREE) make and take, silly fun games with PRIZES, and we are recruiting vendors for you to stock up on your scrappy needs. We will have more info coming shortly with a list of vendors who will be there. If you know you're needing some specific supplies, let us know, and we will tell the vendors to bring some for you to purchase that day. (Maybe time to think ahead for holiday gifts too? Just a thought!)

All the info you need should be in this flyer. If you need more, please call one of us, or email one of us, and we will be happy to help you. This is going to be great fun!

We're Baaaaaaaaack!

Hello? Are you there? Wow, did this blog take a break! Much life happened in the past couple of years, and unfortunately, we were unable to keep up with it all. Anyway, we are happy to bring back Micheggy, and we're doing it by hosting one of our famous crops!

The crop is limited to only 60 participants due to table space, so sign up early. We have invited store vendors, and of COURSE, Jennifer from Moxxie to sell at the crop, and as you can see, the theme is going to be a lot of fun.

Looking forward to connecting with you all again! Also, if you're on Facebook, go give our new page a Like.

OK! Off to post to the Facebook page! Talk soon, partners!
