Card Camp Close-Ups, Round 2

Last week I posted on my other blog, Flourish Scrapbooker, some pictures and a description of the Glimmer Misting class Micheggy is offering at their Card Camp, June 18th OR June 25th. Today, on this blog, I'm posting pictures and descriptions of the Flower Techniques card class.

I searched long and hard to come up with 3 fresh flower-making techniques that you haven't done before. (I hope!) Here they are:

This first "Just Because" card is made using 5 felt petals that we sew together to make the flower. The middle is then adorned with a tile from Technique Tuesday, inked with Quick Quotes inks. The sewing is easy, I promise. We do a little extra technique to make it puff up a bit. I took a closer-up picture below:

See how it's kinda gathered in the middle? It's easy!

Next, we're going to make a cute gift tag with a very ornate flower. (This one might challenge you a bit.) It took me two tries to get it right, but it was SO worth it in the end. Another closer-up picture below:

Twelve petals make up this flower, which got its pattern from a bit of stamping.

Our final card uses even MORE fabric to make the layered flower in the middle. You won't believe the technique needed to make this little friend. It's extremely simple, but I'd never heard of it before now.

Well, that gives you the details of 2 of the 8 classes we are offering at Card Camp. Be sure to keep an eye on all of the following blogs to see updates when they're made available:

and of course, this one...Micheggy!

Card Camp is at The Craft Spot in Emmetsburg from 8-5 on Saturday, June 18th or June 25th. (You get a 1 hour break for lunch on your own.) The cost is $50 for non-members of The Craft Spot, and $45 for members. (If you sign up to be a member before signing up for Card Camp, you get the price break.) You will leave with a total of 24 new projects and techniques, so it's quite the good deal.

As of now, we have 2 signed up, and would like to have at least 10. Please sign up ASAP! You can do so by stopping by K. Jackson & Co. and delivering your payment, or you can contact Michelle at (712) 480-2320, or Peggy at (712) 298-0105 to arrange your payment. We look forward to seeing you there!

Here It Is! The Info You Want!

Let's see, tell you more, you say? Well, here's the scoop: We are offering our first ever Micheggy Card Camp!

Card camp will run from 8am-12, take an hour for you to get some lunch, and pick up again from 1-5pm. During those 8 hours of classes, we will teach you 8 different techniques, completing 3 cards for each technique. By the end of the day, you will have 24 different cards, each using a technique that you can incorporate into your card making!

We are still working out the finer details, but we've also decided to offer it on two different dates, just in case you couldn't make one of them: June 18th and June 25th. We will be holding it at The Craft Spot in Emmetsburg, so we have to limit signups. As soon as we set the price and get a few samples made, we'll be ready to take registrations.

We are very excited about this, and think you will be too. We are really focusing on teaching some new skills that you don't already know, so you can leave with lots of ideas to inspire you to create more on your own. We will be sending you more information soon...very, very soon!

So...what do you think? Are you excited?!

Hint, Hint!

I thought it was time to update our teaser and give you a smidge more information. Micheggy will be meeting tomorrow to discuss this latest adventure for our friends, the cardmakers. I can't tell you too much at this time, but I can say this: Save the date! June 18th, all day. Tell your friends as this is one of those I-don't-want-to-miss-this kind of days. :)

So, does this bring to mind any new guesses? Have we narrowed it down enough for you to give you an inkling of an idea? We will post more by the end of the week, and you can look for more information in your email from Michelle that will come by the end of the month.
