Hello stampers and happy Saturday to you. I am over the moon excited to say that I have found a way to make Coffee and a Card class return. Let me tell you how this cornerstone class of mine started so many years ago.
My Favourite Class
About two years into my business I had an “aha” moment. I was working in retail and driving to work I saw the regular line up of people at the drive-thru window at Tim Horton’s. This triggered me to build a class around morning coffee and to stop working at a job I didn’t love. Coffee and a card was born and it was $5 for one card and coffee and a treat. Over the years it has become an amazing gathering place that fostered many friendships and new team members. Today I am revealing a revamp of this great class.
Coffee and a Card Returns With a Twist
COVID has changed many things and has also forced me to find different ways to run my business. My problem is that I am impulsive, creative and social. Those are all good things but it stopped me from being focused. I struggled with which platform to use and how to structure it. Thanks to some great inspiration from my team member Alison Reid and from UK demonstrator Julie Kettlewell I have come up with a sustainable and fun way to offer this class. Would you like to hear more about it?
How It Works
Once a month I will mail out the packets for the virtual coffee and a card classes for the month. All the cards will use the same stamp set or bundle. Each week I will do a YouTube video that will go live on Tuesday morning at 10am to honour the original coffee and a card class. You can choose to just get the paper supplies for $25 a month OR you can choose to get the stamp set or bundle that goes with it.
For the month of December I will be featuring the bundle Wishes & Wonder. Card kits will be mailed out or ready for pick up on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Here is the first card.
When I saw this stamp set in the catalog I knew I had to have it, but I had no idea that the dies were as awesome as they are! I didn’t realize that the large tag was so detailed and that the postage stamp has tag die as well. So many possibilities!
Virtual Coffee and a Card Class
Here you can see the stamp set and the first card for this great class! I am super excited to be able to do a YouTube live video where we can interact together and create a whole new community of coffee and a card people. Are you getting excited too?
You can order the bundle online with the host code if you like, but if you are not comfortable with that, then you can just message me your order and I will send it to you. This will of course take about ten days longer than if you order it yourself, so I would encourage you to bite the bullet and set up your online account. It really isn’t hard. Let me know by November 20 if you want the paper kit for December.
Each week we will make a card together and you will have all the supplies to play along with me. I will post the dimensions of the cards before the video as well. Please etransfer the $25 fee to email@example.com. PayPal is an option but it is like a credit card, they take a chunk for themselves and that isn’t so lovely, so I try to avoid it if possible.
Thanks so much for joining me today. Hopefully on Monday I will have another card to show you for the Virtual Coffee and a Card class. Have a super day!
