Magenta Style right here in CHATHAM!

The Paper Pickle Company is about to bring you two very RARE and EXCITING opportunities!  One of the creative forces behind the Magenta Rubber Stamp company is coming to Chatham to teach TWO classes!  Magenta is Canada's rubber stamp company and this is HUGE!   

 Nathalie Metivier has been with Magenta since the beginning.  She and her sister, Helene, and brother in law founded the company over 20 years ago in Montreal (got to love a successful family business)!  She has designed rubber stamps, papers and embellishments for Magenta and has had two books published.  It is her mission to share with others the Magenta style!

Magenta is an amazing Canadian rubber stamp company and I cannot believe we have been presented with this unique opportunity!  Magenta was one of the first stamp companies we had carried in the store so it is very near and dear to my heart and I cannot wait to be a part of these classes myself!  I have personally taken one of Nathalie's classes at CHA and she is a very patient instructor.  All levels of crafters are welcome!

 Class Details

This card class will be jam packed with various Magenta Style techniques.  Work with alcohol inks to create gorgeous backgrounds, and colour with distress inks.  The ghost technique will be making an appearance in this class.  Heat embossing will be featured on the bird card along with using various watercolour markers to add colour.  Light refreshments will be included to keep up your stamina!

Date:  Thursday, November 8th
Time:  1-4pm
Cost:  $42.50+hst
Required Supplies:  good scissors, adhesive

So anyone of these cards would make a great Christmas card for 2012, don't you think?  Not only are all three beautiful, they will each teach you a different technique.  Learn what ghost stamping is, work with peel-off's and create a collage style card with direct to paper technique.  You will also be working with pearlescent watercolour paint.  Ok.  I am in love with the silhouette card!  Light refreshments will be included to give you energy!

Date:  Thursday, November 8th
Time:  6-9pm
Cost:  $42.50+hst
Required Supplies:  Good scissors, adhesive

How to Register
You can call the store to register 519.351.5220.  PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL.  Our old email address is about to expire and I would hate for you to miss this opportunity!  Please leave your name and contact number.  Alternatively, you could stop in on Saturday (between 9am-4pm) to sign up.  Remember, I am only open on Saturdays for the month of October (thank you again for your patience!).

All reserved seats must be paid for at time of registration (I will call you for the payment details; don't leave it on the phone).

If you are unable to attend after registering, it is YOUR responsibility to find a replacement.

Seating will be limited, so please call early to avoid disappointment!

Trunk Show
Nathalie will be offering a trunk show after each class.  Magenta stamps and various embellishments will be available for sale.  Any items not brought to the store that day, will be available to order, with orders being filled in a timely manner.

Nathalie has also informed me that she will be bringing their fabulous display boards.  Honestly, I was always amazed when I saw Magenta's booths at the CHA trade show.  Their samples were always so amazing!

So what do you think?  You wondered if we were still going to be offering classes.  Well, I DO know these two are for sure!  Don't miss out!
