More Guest Teachers on the Way ...

Hi SP Bloggers ... Happy Friday!!  We're thrilled to have even more inspiring guest teachers coming to the Playground in the coming months.  You'll want to save these dates on your calendar and watch for more details as these event dates near.

Joey from Bazzill - 1PM on July 7
Bazzill Joey

We're thrilled that Joey's returning to the Playground, even if it can only be for   just one day.  You'll enjoy her down-to-earth style as she guides you through creating a Lickety Slip Album using Bazzill's new Beach House line. If you didn't meet Joey on her first visit, she describes herself pretty simply:  "I'm a mother.  I'm a daughter. I'm a sister.  I work.  I teach. I scrap. I play!   Learn more about Joey.

Dyan Reaveley from Ranger - July 27, 28 and 29

Dyan's an amazing designer with Ranger. She's the fun eclectic creative force behind the Dylusions line of sprays, stencils and stamp sets.  We're so excited to have her visit us from "across the Pond" to inspire and get creative with us. We're still working with Dyan on her class details, but to help you plan, they'll run between $50 and $80.

Thought you'd enjoy watching this fun video of Dyan trying to lend a hand on the assembly line for her Dylusions sprays (remember the I Love Lucy skit?)

The Boys from Echo Park - August 17 and 18

Madison Parker and Jody Hunt, otherwise known as "the Echo Park boys" are coming to the Playground to share some fun and inspiring classes with us.  Playgrounders are loving the clean graphic approach to their colorful papers.  With each new collection, there's always a joyful, yet simple sophistication, that works for all craftin' styles. Visit the Echo Park blog for even more inspiration.

K.I.S.S. with KC from My Mind's Eye -- September 28 and 29

And that's not all! We're looking forward to welcoming back Playground favorite, K.C. from MME - My Mind's Eye (pictured here with Sue and Renee).  During his Keep It Simple Scrapbooking classes, he'll guide us through putting together wonderful creations using the beautiful MME papers, embellishments and more!  

Be on the lookout for details as event date nears and leave us a Comment below to let us know who else in the crafting world you might want us to invite to the Playground.  We're looking forward to sharing great times with you and all of our special guest teachers.  Until then, happy creating!


  1. Soooo excited that Dylan Reavely is coming to The Playground!! I'll have moved to PA by then, but I'm definitely coming back for that. Don't tell my mom i said so; she thinks I'm coming to see her!

    Any chance you could convince Julie Balzer, Dina Wakely or Diana Trout to pay a visit?

  2. Hi Ellen ... your secret's safe with us (ha!). Thanks for the other suggestions too!
