Crepe Paper Foxglove Workshop

I’m back at The Paper Place on May 23rd to teach how I make my foxgloves from 6:30 pm to 9 pm. I’m excited to teach this flower because it’s actually one of my favourite flowers to make and to use in my arrangements. It’s not particularly difficult to make and it’s technically simple. The only thing is, it’s one of those flowers that take more than an hour to make because it has so many bits. The results though, are absolutely stunning. So I’m teaching it!

There will be a little cutting, gluing, and painting.

I’m hoping that the paper I need is available (and not sold out) so I can teach the white foxglove. If not, then we’ll make peach or purple foxgloves. Just as lovely and stunning.

Go to my Workshops page to find the details. There are only 8 spots available, so if you intend to sign up for the workshop, sign up fast!

Crafted to Bloom Floral Liner Stationary with Polk Paper

I’ve always loved beautiful stationary, so when Schuyler Polk of Polk Paper reached out to me I thought it was the perfect time to pursue one of my dreams – to create floral liner stationary sets using images of my paper flowers. And boy am I glad that I took the opportunity to respond to Schuyler’s DM!

This beautiful stationary set is the result of our collaboration. Isn’t it just GLORIOUS??? Talk about the perfect collaboration. Schuyler completely understands and appreciates my style and my flowers. Not to mention that she has a fantastic eye for colour and composition – she made suggestions for the envelope colours; she positioned my floral images on the envelope liners; and she took photos of the set with real flowers for the flat lays. The only thing I did was send her photos of my paper flowers.

The set is available for purchase for $47 USD on Schuyler’s Etsy site. They come in a set of 12 flat personalized cover weight note cards, with 3 distant drums (beet envelope)(I am teaching a workshop on how to make these Distant Drums), 3 dahlias (soft coral envelope), 3 ranunculuses (cipria envelope).

Here are more images of the stationary set – I’m floored by how gorgeous they turned out. I have a set of 10 of the distant drums and I use them as Thank You cards with my orders. They’re even more beautiful in my hands.

Paper Floral Garden Rose Workshop

I’m back at the Aurora Cultural Centre on April 28th to teach a course on making crepe paper flowers. Last year, I had a blast! It was wonderful to meet ladies of every age and experience. I was so astonished to learn that so many of them did not live anywhere near Aurora and had in fact travelled across the province to attend my workshop.

In this Paper Floral Garden Rose Workshop, we will be making my version of a floribunda rose called Distant Drums, using doublette crepe from The Paper Place.

The class will be from 10 am to 3 pm on April 28, 2018. The cost is $75 (HST included) per student payable at the time of registration, plus a $15 material fee payable to the instructor (that’s me) at the beginning of the class. Since the class will run though lunch time, I suggest you bring a lunch/snack to keep you energized. Also, please bring a pair of sharp scissors.

Registration just opened today! You can register over the phone (905-713-1818) or in-person. See here for more details.

Hope to see you there!

Jessie
