July 17 - Dress Form Class

There are few things I have been as excited about as much as much as I am about the new scrapbooking store opening here in Mansfield, The Scrapbooking Cafe, a week from Saturday. Jenn and Debbie left this morning for CHA in Chicago to get all of the latest and greatest for the store and I can't wait to see what they come home with (and Amanda - I told Jenn about your special request)! Newsletters are going out this week and an e-mail newsletter will be coming out hopefully this weekend.

Well today's project is something that I can't post blog instructions for because I'm teaching it for the first class at the new store. The class is called "Dress it Up!" and in it we will be making this fun wire dress form that you can use to display your jewelry or use it as a home decor piece! It's taller than you probably think it is - it is 21" tall. We will be using the new and completely gorgeous Euphoria line from Basic Grey.

Here are the class details!

Dress It Up
Saturday, August 9
10:00 am - Noon

Description: Make a home decor item that will be sure to draw "ooh's and aaah's" from every visitor to your home. We will be decorating a black metal table top dress form with a gorgeous skirt of patterned paper, flowers, pearls and your favorite photos.

Need to bring: Scissors
Everything else to make this will be provided, you don't even need to bring photos if you don't want to - you can clip them to your skirt when you get home. If you DO want to bring photos, you will need wallet sized photos (most photo labs can print your digital photos out in wallet sizes).

If you'd like to take the class just call the store at (419) 524-CAFE and leave a message that you'd like to register for the class with your phone number and we'll call you back and confirm your registration next week. Sign ups will be taken in the order the messages are received. You can also see the sample of the class project in person at the store's grand opening next Saturday, July 26th and sign up then.

Hope to see you there!!!! :)

PS - My new blog header is a close up photo of the skirt of this project so you can see it a little better, or just click on the full-size photo above to see a larger photo of the full project.

WOW Holly, I hadn't seen this yet and am floored. If I lived closer I would totally take this class!!

Did you actually make the dress form or did you buy it and decorate it?

I would love to make something like this for myself.
