Event Description

Each month, generally on the third Thursday in the afternoon, we're going to make a stack of cards along a certain theme. All you have to do is show up with a basic kit which includes: your favorite paper cutting scissors, adhesive and ink pad.

You'll be provided 10 card and envelopes (plus a few extra in case you mess up). I'll demonstrate some different techniques, have a sample card or two for inspiration, and then you'll have the run of the Ephemera Paducah Studio to create a stack of cards. I have been hoarding rubber stamps for years. You'll have access to them, paper, punches, ephemera and embellishments in the stash. At the end of two hours we ought to have made some progress!

You are also welcome to bring favorite papers and stamps to create to cards of your dreams. If we work through the following schedule over the next 12 months, we ought to have wonderful personalized cards for almost every occasion!
