Creative Escape Break-Out Classes & More!

I hope you are getting excited for Creative Escape coming up on June 23rd and 24th!

One of the things that sets Creative Escape apart from other crops and/or retreats is that attendees have the option to sign up for break-out classes at a reduced cost (an approx. $15 discount per class!)

We have 5 classes lined up for this weekend; registration for these classes is open for 1 week — until Tuesday June 12th. These classes are pre-pay and product based, so you are getting product for your money.

  • Saturday at Noon: Afternoon Daydream, Cost: $25 — This class includes an ENTIRE "Afternoon Daydream Simply Scrappin Kit" ($26.08 value alone!) in addition to other consumable supplies (cardstock, ribbon and embellishments) for the designs featured in the class. At this class, you will be able to make either scrapbook pages or cards — your choice! You will use 1/2 of the kit during the class, and then 1/2 of the kit left over to make MORE creations, either during Creative Escape or at home!

 

  • Saturday at 4 pm: My Digital Studio for Beginners, Cost: FREE — This hour-long class includes learning all of the basics on My Digital Studio — Stampin' Up!'s computer-based design system. You do not have to own My Digital Studio to take this class. You can bring your laptop with My Digital Studio already loaded and follow along. Or, just attend the class and watch and listen. Note: You can download a FREE trial of My Digital Studio before you arrive at Creative Escape so that you can "test drive" it while you are at the retreat with help and guidance! Use Item Code 129600 through my Online Store at www.stampwithkriss.stampinup.net.


 

  • Saturday at 8 pm: Betsy's Blossom Explosion Album, Cost: $15 –This class will lead you through making an explosion album with the bright colors of the ever-popular Betsy's Blossom Designer Paper. You don't have to be a scrapbooker to enjoy this class since it's a stand-alone mini album — perfect for a gift or to keep! You will receive 1/2 a pack of Betsy's Blossom Designer Paper and 1/2 a package of Paper Daisies at this class ($10.12 value alone!) in addition to all sorts of other consumables to adorn your album, and all of the necessary cardstock. You won't use all of the paper and daisies during the class, so will have left overs to make MORE creations, either during Creative Escape or at home!

 

  • Sunday at 9 am: Bandstand, Cost: $25 –This class includes an ENTIRE "Bandstand Simply Scrappin Kit" ($26.08 value alone!) in addition to other consumable supplies (cardstock, ribbon and embellishments) for the designs featured in the class. At this class, you will be able to make either scrapbook pages or cards — your choice! You will use 1/2 of the kit during the class, and 1/2 of the kit will be left over to make MORE creations, either during Creative Escape or at home!

 

  • Sunday at 1 pm: Intermediate My Digital Studio, Cost: FREE — This hour-long class will bypass all of the basics on My Digital Studio and delve more into capabilities and functionality.  To take this class, it is best that you either take the Saturday Beginner's Class first OR have had experience with My Digital Studio already at home as basics will not be explained.
In case you don't have a copy of the new catalog yet, I am attaching photos of the kits and paper that the classes will be based around.

To sign up for any of these break out classes, simply e-mail me at krisshuels@gmail.com and I will send you an invoice, payable online via credit ord ebit card! You can also put a check in the mail if you prefer as long as I'll receive it by Tuesday, June 12th.
 

Additionally, I am pleased to let you know what you will be receiving in your product bundles! There will be 4 large display boards FILLED with project ideas showcasing these supplies for you to copy throughout the weekend if you choose :

  • Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper
  • Brights 12×12 Cardstock Assortment
  • 2 Sheets Whisper White 12×12 Cardstock
  • 6 Sheets Whisper White 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock

That's a ton of product you'll be getting to play with!

Lastly, if there is anything that you would like to pre-order from the Stampin' Up! Catalog to have with you at Creative Escape, be sure to e-mail me your order by June 13th so that I can be sure to get it in on time for you! Here are some things you might want to check your inventory on to have on hand:

 
  • Embellishments (there are NEW Dahlias, Wood Buttons and Facet Jewels in additional to the "regulars'!)

And to get even more bang for the buck on your order,  you can participate in the BOGO Sale (go to https://stampwithkriss.com/buy-one-get-one-free-stamping-sale for the details) and take what you want to have on hand for the weekend for FREE!

We also have been ordering door prizes and are happy to let you know that over $150 in FREE product is going to be given out this weekend via door rrizes! This is ON TOP of your daily gifts and bundles! Woooo hoooo!

I also just have to tell you that we had a Demonstrator Event at the Casino this past Saturday, and the food is FABULOUS! We felt completely spoiled by the massive and unlimited menu selection. They even had brunch options in the early afternoon — it was so yummy – you're going to love it!

Registration is going to be extended through June 12th — 1 more week — for the 10 remaining spots available if you have friends who want to join you if they haven't registered yet!

Winter Scrapbooking Class

Friday January 22nd
6:30PM – 9:30PM
at 67 Covington Rd., Rochester, NY

Registration Deadline:  January 4th

I'm so pleased to begin offering my customers a scrapbooking class!  We'll meet monthly — the first session will be Friday, January 22nd, from 6:30PM to 9PM at 67 Covington Rd., Rochester.  Then beginning in February, we'll meet on the 2nd Friday of each month.  You can mark your calendars well in advance and not miss out!

Each Scrapbooking Class will have a theme, and you'll complete 2, 2-page 12"x12" layouts – 4 pages total.  Our first Scrapbooking Class is a winter theme.  Create elegant pages for winter photos — either vintage or modern.

In addition, each Scrapbooking Class fee will include a Stampin' Up! Product Base — whatever you don't use on the layouts that you create that evening you take home and make MORE layouts to coordinate!

Here's a look at just one of the layouts we'll create (these pages are designed to go side-by-side so the second page doesn't have a title) Just as an aside, scrapbook photos are very difficult to photograph.  The photos just don't do these layouts justice!
Scrapbooking Jan 09 1

Scrapbooking Jan 09 2

You don't need to bring any photos with you to the scrapbooking classes, the pages are designed so that you can add those later, once you find the perfect photo!  NOTE: Any scrapbook page transforms once photos are added.

The product base for this class is 1/2 package of Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper (6 sheets total) and 1 full package of Snowflake Printed Window Sheets (2 sheets total). Here's a look at those products ($15.34 value):


 
Registration deadline is January 4th. The Window Sheets are from the Holiday Mini Catalog and cannot be ordered past that date.

The cost of this class is $18 and includes the product base items and all other supplies needed.

Interested in coming to class but would prefer a different location?  Just contact me and I may be able to offer an additional time slot.

You must register and pre-pay for this class by January 3rd so that supplies may be ordered.  Send you check in the amount of $18 payable to "Kriss Huels", 5225 Knapp Road, Middlesex, NY  14507, or pay online and secure by clicking on the button below ($1 PayPal fee included).
