Renee at Photo Express tells us that they’ve got two fun classes happening this week.

The first is "Christian Cards" featuring Karen's fabulous style! Here's a brief description:

"If your faith plays a central part in your life, sometimes a regular card just won't do. In this class, you'll make five Christian-themed cards for those special moments when God's word needs to be shared. Please bring a class tool kit including trimmer, scissors, adhesives, pop dots and a brown ink pad."

It's running Thursday, April 8 from 12 - 2 and the cost is $25

The second is "All Occasion Cards with Whipper Snapper & Copic" featuring three fun cards designed by the amazing Renee. Here’s a brief description:

"Renee is SO excited that we are now carrying Whipper Snapper Designs rubber stamps! Join her in this fast paced class where you'll create three great cards using these fun stamps and Copic markers. You'll learn how to blend and shade with the Copics, and get that "professional" look when colouring your images. You'll leave class with enough stamped images and extra paper to create more cards at home! One Copic marker is included in the price of this class. Please bring your own Copic markers (if you have any), as this will help keep the class moving. You will also need a variety of adhesives including Glue Dots, pop dots, and double-sided tape or tabs, and a pair of sharp scissors."

This class is running on Saturday, April 10 from 2 - 4 PM and the cost is $24.

Also, Photo Express’ weekly sale is $5 off every $25 of regular priced, in-stock scrapbooking items purchased.

Photo Express is offering to take the participants’ photos in-store and will email to us.
