August Highlights  

Stay ‘n Play:

a BrookingS art retreat

August 25 – 30, 2014

I’ve been wanting to have a local retreat where we stay right here in Brookings and enjoy a full week of papercrafting madness. No need to pay for a hotel room! Sleep in your own bed then come to Creating Lasting Memories for a full week of classes, food, and prize drawings. Sign-up for as many or as few events as you want. It will be madness!

Tag Madness:

First up is the 12 Tags of Christmas. (Note: You can make cards instead of tags if you prefer). The focus in this class is Tim Holtz distress techniques. You will make 4 tags/cards each day, Monday- Wednesday, 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Daily fee of $25 includes lunch.

Card Madness:

On Friday morning we will make 4 non-distress, non-Xmas cards. This class will have a wider spectrum of products and maybe a unique fold or two. Event begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. Fee of $20 includes lunch.

Mixed Media Madness:

On Thursday afternoon it will be all about Mixed Media. The project is a 6×6 shadow box. Class meets 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. Cost of $20 includes all supplies and a decadent dessert.

Crop Madness:

Finally, on Friday and Saturday there will be 3 crops: Crop 1 is Friday from 5:30 p.m.-12:00 a.m. Jacki will be teaching a layout from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Cost of $20 includes dinner and all supplies for the layout. Crop 2 is Saturday, 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Jacki will teach another layout from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Cost of $25 includes breakfast, lunch and all supplies for the layout. Crop 3 is Saturday from 5:30 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. and is similar to the Friday evening crop. Marjorie will teach a layout from 6:00 -8:00 p.m. Cost of $20 includes dinner and all layout supplies.
