Don’t forget your Class Kit!

Your basic kit should include: Paper trimmer, scissors, various adhesives (both wet & dry), glue dots, foam squares, tweezers, paper trimmer, scoring tool, favorite ink and applicator, paint brushes, baby wipes, writing pen and small notebook for taking any notes.

About our Event:
This event is designed specifically for qualified paper crafting retailers.  If you are not sure if you qualify, please call Jenni Sprinz at 719-528-1391 for more information.

All classes are especially planned for YOU, the independent Paper Crafting Retailer and your team--store managers, and in-house teachers.  Events are planned so that you can return to your store with not only the best new products, but also with the latest paper crafting techniques to help GROW YOUR BUSINESS and SELL MORE PRODUCT. Our classes provide you with complete projects and instructions that you can take back to your store and teach to your customers - thus building enthusiasm and maximizing sales.

Our FREE Tradeshow on Sunday allows you to speak personally to the key personnel from each of the vendors in a much more relaxed and intimate setting than you ever could find at the "major" shows. In addition, vendors will be offering amazing show specials that are available only to stores in attendance.
