Card Making Party Ideas

Want to make your own greeting cards or discover new ways to embellish a mixed media piece or scrapbook page? We’d love to show you some fun & effective techniques!

It can be hard to schedulea class timethat works for everyone, so we decided to offer lessons that are more like art parties than scheduled classes. That means youdecide what type of class you’d like to take, find some friends to take it with you (a minimum of 3 people) then contact our team to set up a mutually convenient date, time and place – could be your place, ours or somewhere else.

The cost is $25 per person, based on a minimum of 3 students per class. It is possible to arrange a custom class for 1 – 2 persons;fee is negotiable. All class participants receive a 10% discount voucher applicable to a future purchase of specialty paper and craft supplies.

So have a look at what we offer, get together a group of 3 or more participants and let’s talk about when and where to play.


Alcohol Inks Card Party

So true that effects depend on the paper you use…

Experience the difference between alcohol inks on non-absorbent paper & alcohol inks on absorbent paper. First, using alcohol inks on a sealed paper, we will combine this with stamping and peel-offs for a mixed media card. Next, using handmade porous paper we will create a stylish wrap-around card with ribbon tie.


Heat Embossing Card Party

Everyone loves the heat gun after they try it, even me.

Discover the difference between playing with detailed embossing powders and playing with embossing enamels. Using the heat gun on these different materials, combined with stamping, we will create two very distinctive embossed cards.


Gold Leafing Card Party

Really a choice of silver, gold, copper leafing and leafing crumbs…

Curious about metallic leafing? Experience two different ways of applying leafing to paper. First we will use the leafing adhesive to create a free form card design, followed by the use of double-sided tape to create the striking sharp-edged design of the second card.
