(pronunciation - oot and aboot)
We will soon be making a return visit to "The Great White North". Last year we had the opportunity to teach some classes at The Scrap Yard in Calgary for our good friend Lori Wilson-Bunda. This year she has asked us to return for a special event being held at this lovely resort.
Nakoda Lodge, is nestled in the Canadian Rockies on beautiful lake Chief Hector. We are so excited, not only to get to go to this gorgeous place but to spend time with this fun lady as there will never be a dull moment.
Just to give you an idea of how colorful she is, check out her cool boots.
We got to celebrate her birthday while we were there....it was great fun!
While we are there we will be teaching our new class called,
This new 7gypsies mini drawer has 10 numbered cards with journaling lines on the back to write out your own unique "TEN". It might be 10 things I love, 10 people I love, 10 places I have visited, 10 people who have inspired me, 10 Ways to Leave Your Lover (oops! sorry, that's a Paul Simon song and I am sure it is copyrighted, so we can't use it), but you get the drift, right? We will be using 7gypsies new paper line Lille in the 8 x 8 scale for inspiration in creating the cards with a bit of ephemera thrown in. We also will be using a whole 'lotta Ranger products from Perfect Pearls to the new Distress Stains in combination with Perfect Pearls Mists, just a bit of 10 Seconds Studios Metal and Alcohol Ink thrown in for good measure. We will create enough cards and tags to fill the mini drawer with a bit of room left for photos representing your 10. Each drawer will be unique, using words, numbers and initials you choose to make your own personal statement.
even a little compartment in the center for treasures
We are teaching the class twice on Sat. April 9th, (10am and 7pm) come join us for one or two....IT'S GOING TO BE A FUN TIME! (but you have to bring your own metal paper edge moustache)

Do you live a life of Abundance? We don’t mean dollars in the bank but plentifulness of the good things of life; family or friends...love and compassion. Celebrate what is good about your life right now by deconstructing a 7gypsies portfolio into what looks like a neat package, yet opens to reveal a “movable” feast of individual parts. Each fold of the stage opens to reveal hidden journaling spots, tiny pictures and eventually a small book for more introspection. Personalize your project with your own pictures, words and thoughts to make this project unique to you, a friend, or loved one. We will be working with 7gypsies new Lille paper, Collage tissue (fabulous) and Ranger’s new Distress Stains (can you tell we love this stuff?) So get ready to put on your apron, get your fingers dirty and celebrate the abundance of life.
Oh, how I love this project!
Our next stop brings Debbie to California

We may add a few more dates to the schedule for these classes so just keep watching (still finalizing dates). If you are not in the area where we are teaching, just email us and we will put you on a waiting list for extra kits if they become available.
