Introducing Sweet Summertime...

Hey everyone, I'm very excited to announce my first class coming up with Gossamer Blue.  It's called Sweet Summertime and it's going to be jam packed full of Summer crafty goodness. 

Here's a peek at some of the items we'll be making in the class.  I've got an awesome double banner that will be perfect for displaying front and center in your home.  It's homespun and cute and just full of eye candy and unique crafty items.  Then I'll be showing you how to make some sweet cards, gift sacks and tags.  I know you all love to get new recipes so I'll be sharing some of my new favorites, packaged up with the packaging we create in class.  To top it all off, I'll be sharing some inspiring Pinterest finds for ideas on how to display your banner + you'll be the first to see the progression of my chalkboard wall which is where I plan to display my Sweet Summertime banner and Summer Bucket List. 


The concept for this class is so great, here's how the classroom works........

First, you will be able to purchase all the supplies needed for the class in the Complete Sweet Summertime Class Kit.  The kit is on sale now at this link. You can see a photo of the kit contents + there is a listing of the kit contents below the photo.  When I say jam packed, it's really jam packed full of goodies from Basic Grey, Crate Paper and some fun items from my shop + a few vintage finds.  The kits are in limited quantities so act quickly if you want the exact items that I'll be showing in class.  

Next you can purchase the Sweet Summertime Class at this link.  This gets you private access to  a special blog which becomes the classroom.  The class will open July 5th with a welcome message and full class syllabus.  Class begins on July 8th and will updated by me every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with fresh content.  The class will run for 4 entire weeks so we will be able to have a lot of fun in July!  There will be detailed instructions on how to assemble the banner, the cards, the gift sacks and tags.  Plus there will be a message board and gallery so that participants can connect, ask questions and share creations and display ideas.  You can see the full course outline at this link

So you can purchase the class and the kit and you'll be all set for July.  If you think you'd rather use your own supplies but would love the ideas, you can certainly just purchase the class and have access to the private blog.  Or you can just purchase the kit and use the supplies as you'd like. It's all up to you.

I hope you'll join me in class.....I promise this won't be your typical Summer school. No math, no hot class rooms, no research papers....just pure fun!

But wait....I'm giving away 3 spots to just the classroom (no kit).  If you'd like a chance to join me in class in July, leave a comment at the end of this post telling me an item on your Summer to do list.  You must leave your name and email address so that I can contact you if you're a winner.  I'll select the 3 free class spots on Sunday evening at 6pm Central Time.  Winners will be announced on Monday, June 24th here on the blog.

I've got furniture painting on my summer bucket list. I know - not traditional, but it's something I've been wanting to do for a long time! :)

Winning a class with you as instructor would be a fab way to spend July. Craftwise I need to clean and organize my craft room. Chorewise, the garage needs the same - ugh!

Shan said...

My Summer bucket list is...soak up as much fun and sun with my four kiddos as much as possible. It's been a rocky year with my youngest son being diagnosed with a rare form of Epilepsy. Definitely makes you appreciate the little things. <3 Your class is beyond reasonably priced-so even if I don't win, I'd love to do it!

Luanne said...

I would love to just relax this summer and entertain friends and family. Thanks so much for this drawing!

Bucket List for the summer is to spend as much time with 18yr old son before he leaves for college in Aug. I have promised not to sob until I am back in the car. I also have to make sure he can wash his own clothes...I do see pink underware in his future.
