So, when I was in Chicago, I took a class at Stamp On In in the Lincoln Park area. Did I ever tell you how much I just love the 2 owners? They're the best to work with. I don't get to go to Chicago as often as I used to, so any excuse to go I make a point to stop at their store.
They were so sweet, if you order catalog stuff thru them, they give you a 15% discount. They don't gouch you on the shipping, you pay what they pay. Order usually has quick turn around. Of course, aside from the fact that they remember me (probably because I usually made out like a bandit when I go there), they were so nice to offer that if a class is not packed, to move the dates to accommodate my travel. Now, talk about super customer service that is it! Granted, the class was only consisted of 2 people, some other classes are 3 or 4, and we get cookies and lemonade. But, to go to the extra mile to offer to change dates because of a customer's travel arrangement, I just was floored by their generosity.
I tell you, if you ever get a chance to support local stamp stores, do it! Unlike me, my only options are chain stores, that's why I go online and help the small companies.
Anyway, the class that was available was Cuttlebug class. But there are some stamping in there as well, so that was good. We did 3 cards based on the new Cuttlebug folders. I love classes like these, I was very much on the edge with buying those folders and given now that I've tried it, I was sold... well on one of them anyway.
I love how these came out. Hope you like them too.
