August Calendar Updates & Photos

Hi Everyone!
TGIF! Hope you had a good week and are headed for a WONDERFUL WEEKEND! To start your weekend, you should plan on attending our USED STAMP/CRAFT SALE TOMORROW, Saturday, August 6th. We are opening early at 9:30AM for your shopping convenience!

We have TONS of stuff for sale: several Cricut machines (one has a BEAUTIFUL rolling bag with it) and we also have Cricut cartridges! We have lots of storage containers, lots and lots of stamps, paper, kits, albums, glitter, flowers, a Cuttlebug, embossing folders, more stamps, Stamp 'N Up stamp sets, - just a ton of great stuff! We have 21 'Sellers' - so lots of variety! Everything is in good condition and priced to sell!

I am so excited about the August Calendar! Many of you have already looked at in online, 'cause we have classes that are selling out!! Here is the link to the August Calendar:
Call The Stamper's Cove: 941-907-0802, to register for any of our classes or to learn more about them!

Here are some photos of upcoming classes:
Dies To Die For, Tuesday, August 9th, 1-3PM. Class Fee: $22. We will be using a fun Birch Tree Die to make these two great cards. The nice thing about this die is that each birch tree stands alone - they are not attached, so you can place them anywhere on your card and cut as many as you'd like! The Birch Tree Die is included with the price of the class.

Coffee & Card With Kathy, Wednesday, August 10th, 10-11AM. Join us on Wednesday mornings to make a simple, fun card! This class is free (small donation appreciated), but you MUST bring your class kit AND you also MUST call to reserve your seat! We only have a few seats available this week, so call to reserve your right away!
Masculine Card Class, Wednesday, August 10th, 1:30 - 3:30 OR Tuesday, August 30th, 1-3PM. Class Fee: $15. We will make 3 Masculine Cards using a variety of stamps, dies, inks and embellishments! Here is a photo of the cards:

Let's Make Stencils, Thursday, August 11th, 1-3PM. Class Fee: $12. Join us to make some stencils! We will use various materials to create our own unique stencils! We have really gotten into stencils here at The Stamper's Cove, so I am looking forward to this class!
Holiday Banner, Saturday, August 13th, 1-3PM OR Wednesday, August 24th, 1:30 - 4PM. Class Fee: $15. Join us to make this fun Holiday Banner! We will use Holiday papers, Sizzix Dies and embellishments to create this great Banner. The banner will have 5 pennants, jingle bells, and will have the word JOY spelled out on the pennants.

Holiday Mini Tag Album, Tuesday, August 16th 6-8:30PM OR Saturday, August 27th, 1-3:30PM. Class Fee: $15.

In addition to the classes listed above, we will, of course have our regular classes in August:

So... my babies, Emelia & Claire are in New York City visiting friends for the next few weeks (Sarah & Michael lived there for over 10 years - Emelia was born in NYC). Here is a photo of Emelia, Claire & Sarah in a taxi in NYC. The photo is actually a 'selfie' - isn't it great?!! Love these girls!!

Okay - so time for me to get to work setting up for the Used Stamp/Craft Sale! Hope to see you all tomorrow!
