EDITED: Class sign ups have been closed as we've reached capacity. Thank you so much!
Hi everyone! Rachel and I are so so so excited to share the details of our new online class! It's going to be SO much fun. We've been working & planning & creating new cuteness that we can't wait to share with you!
And here are all of the details that your heart could desire....
This is an 8 week class by Rachel Denbow & Elsie Flannigan. We are teaching this class together. There are projects by each of us and many that we have developed together!
The class begins February 15th and lasts for 8 full weeks. There are a total of 30 projects that are spread out evenly over the 8 weeks. The class is hosted on a private blog that only students can see. It's a lot of fun and a great way for us to get to know each other! Each project includes lots of photos & step-by-step instructions (PDFs are included for projects with patterns!).
Each week will also include a private chat with one or both of us (Elsie will host all of the chats except for the week she is in Italy! :D). These chats are lots of fun and will be hosted at a variety of times to fit different schedules. They stay posted, too, so that you can read them if you aren't able to attend!
Class fee is $60 (or $2 per project!! :D).
*This is not a kit. Supplies needed for the class are primarily common household items and inexpensive craft store items. Allowing you to collect these supplies for the projects saves both of us time & money! We are able to offer many more projects in this format than in a traditional class and there are no shipping charges!
*After you have purchased your class spot you will receive an e-mail with log in information to our private blog within 24 hours!
*We do have a limit on available spots. We will be keeping this class small enough that we can communicate with every person individually through our chats and project conversations. :)
*These 4 sample projects are the only images that we will be posting of our class projects outside of our private blog. Class projects are exclusive!!! :D

A note to my previous students:
If you were a student in my last class you may be wondering how this class will differ. Here are the changes I've made...
-The class is 2 weeks longer this time. We have more time to work on projects, we have more chats & a slightly more relaxed schedule! :)
-Rachel and I are teaching this class together! 2 teachers are better than one!! :D We share a very similar style and love working together. This will enable us both to put more energy into each project and have more time to communicate with our students! Yay!!
-We are posting an exact schedule & supply lists for class projects before the class begins (on our private blog). You will know what day to expect what project on and you will have more time to prepare! :D
And here are a few quotes from my previous students....
"This class was life changing for me :) The inspiration that I was given helped me produce so many amazing works of art. I was crafting during ALL of my spare time and it was amazing!! Thank you so much for the opportunity!"
"This class inspired me with so many new ideas but most importantly it gave me the courage to try new things. I see the world with new eyes now- how can I take that and make it into something SO CUTE???!!! Thanks, Elsie, it has been worth every penny." Lisa
"Its like a backstage look at Elsie's way of working, style and inspirations that only really cool people get to see..... but i was one of those!" Adelle
"Taking Elsie's class has been hugely inspiring for me. I've learned a lot about myself as an artist and what i am capable of creating. Plus, it was fun to connect with Elsie fans all over the world!"
"I've never felt more inspired in my life than while participating in Elsie's online class. The class format, chats, inspiration and sharing of ideas was absolutely amazing! I learned soooo much and can't wait for another opportunity like this! Elsie is a fabulous teacher with such amazing ideas...creative genius. This class was more than I hoped for!"
"It was always a pleasure to check the class website each day for new posts. Elsie's cheerful personality shone through in all of the lessons and made me feel welcomed and inspired." Gillian
"Taking Elsie's class was one of the most inspiring things i've ever done. I can't speak more highly of the class (it's creative, kitschy, original projects), Elsie (truly an inspiration), and the outcome (seeing all the projects in the Flickr group).
Elsie has a rare ability to teach her craft and skill while allowing and inviting her students to relate to her. I think that's what makes her so special!"
"This was the absolute most inspiring 6 weeks of my entire life. All i wanted to do was create all day long. Each time Elsie posted a new project it felt like Christmas! :D "
"you will regret not taking this class. It is an amazing opportunity to get a closer look into a different world that you love so much"
Elsie's class was an adventure from the beginning, and I can't say I've ever had more fun creating in my life! She gives her heart, time, and effort to make her classes unbelievable, and her creativity is inspiring and more contagious than you could ever imagine!
