A week ago, my mom, sister and our friend Pat took a Whippersnapper card class at Runaway Art and Crafts. Even though I've been to the store many times, I've never taken a class there. I was planning to drive to Seattle to take Sandy Allnock's class at Impress, but when I heard Pat was going to be in town, I wanted to find something we could all do and the Whippersnapper class taught by Deb Hook seemed like the perfect choice.
I was a little hesitant when I arrived a bit ahead of the rest of the girls because I'm not very comfortable in social situations when I don't know anyone, but everyone made me feel very welcome.
The class itself was so much fun. We all had a great time and want to take more classes in the future. I had a great opportunity to practice my copic coloring (since the Onlinecardclasses.com Copic for Card Markers class keeps stressing that practice is the key), I didn't expect to learn so much either. I've been making cards for a long time and I watch a lot (probably way too many) You Tube videos on card making techniques, but I loved the partial die cut technique Deb taught with the Spellbinders dies. So cool! Deb was a great instructor. She kept up with everyone and made it all seem effortless and, of course, Christy, the owner, was gracious as always. I love having a local store with such a great owner.
Anyhow, go check out the class offerings at Runaway, they are amazing! Here are the cards I made:
