2 MEGASTARS for Online Classes

CROP FOR KIDS is very honoured to have Kim Archer and Carole Janson design 2 online classes for us, leading up to the actual event. These will be our last 2 online classes, so if you have ever wanted to do some online classes, this would be a great opportunity to do them, and it's for charity!! Best of both worlds!

Celebrating Childhood - Kim Archer

This is one of Kim Archer's Workshop @ Home's new range of Shorts Quick & Easy Workshop classes. This one in particular, has been exclusively designed for Crop For Kids. ALL proceeds from this class from now until February 29 will be donated to CROP FOR KIDS. Some of Kim's Support Team girls are also donating their time to create support layouts for this class.

The theme for this class is CELEBRATING CHILDHOOD!! Choose a photo from your own childhood or one which best sums up your children's childhood and let's create a fun single layout with loads of texture, fabric and ribbon strips.

There will be a LIVE chat room feature will also be activated for this class so anytime you head into the classroom you will be able to chat with other participants if you wish, if they are in the classroom at the same time. NOTE: The class is run as an instant workshop which means you can access the classroom to complete your project at a time convenient for you. You will have access to a downloadable PDF step by step handout as well as being able to view lots of photos and details about each step. And our Support Team will again provide plenty of variety in their own versions of this workshop.

Instructor: Kim Archer
Cost: A$8.00 per person

Please register at Kim Archer Workshops @ Home (payment to be made directly to them).


Hang'em-Uppers - Carole Janson

Carole, a current Scrapbooking Memories Master, has designed 2 extremely gorgeous....... I call them "Hang'em-Uppers". It's true! That's what you do with them when you are done. You'll want to hang'em up! Whether it's on the wall, a door, your notice board, your fridge, your cupboard doors, your office cubicle, your work computer (because trust me, you'll much rather look at this than your computer screen at work).... anywhere you think can do with some decorations. They are very versatile, and very easy to make. Looking at the materials list, it's a fantastic way to use up those scraps!! These are some sneak peeks for your viewing pleasure ....

As you can see, they ooze of Carole's signature 3-dimensional embellishing technique. For more of Carole's beautiful work, please visit her blog.

Date: Thursday, 28th February 2008
Time: 8.00pm - 10.00pm (VIC/NSW/TAS); 7.00pm - 9.00pm (QLD); 6.00pm - 8.00pm (WA); 7.30pm - 9.30pm (SA)
Cost: A$10.00 per person
Instructor: Carole Janson

To register, please EMAIL US.

Carole's class will be conducted via Crop For Kids Virtual Classroom. Upon payment of class fees, you will be given the materials' list for you to gather your supplies. A few days before the class, you will receive an invitation to the Virtual Classroom, where the class will be conducted. Please register ASAP so you have ample time to gather your materials.

This is your last chance of joining any Crop For Kids Online Classes for 2008. If you cannot make it to our crop, but would still love to help us, this is one great way. Not only will the classes let you create some beautiful projects instructed by some inspirational designers, you are bound to meet some new scrapbooking friends online, in the comfort of your own home. Best of all, your class fees will be donated to The Royal Children's Hospital.

We look forward to having you.
