First, a great big THANK YOU is in order!
There are many aspects of teaching classes or hosting events that many followers do not realize or think about. Costs is one of those. It is a wide range from venue rental fees, food, taxes, resort fees, transportation, shipping, class supplies… and the list could go on and on!
In September I taught at an in-person workshop organized by Marjorie with Atlanta Stylish Point in Atlanta. This was the first in-person workshop we have been able to organize since 2020 and just like everything else worldwide, costs have gone up.
Sponsors are a big part of teaching classes and hosting events. A BIG PART!
I want to give a great BIG SHOUT OUT to my class sponsor for that event!!!
Thank you H & H Sign Supply!
They sponsored my Acrylic Decor class and sent extra goodies for the students too!
Without sponsors like H & H Sign Supply, I could not do classes and events.
I greatly appreciate the support and the students loved all the goodies!
Here is a photo of the class project I taught at the event.
This was a project that the attendees designed completely from scratch using several fonts styles.
Here is a list of the supplies used to create this project:
– Oracal 651 adhesive vinyl in the following colors:
Brown, Golden Yello, Purple Red, Dark Red, Light Orange
– Oratape MT80P application tape
– Acrylic Panel or sign
– Wood stand (optional for panel)
– Spiced Pumpkin DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint
– Saffron Yellow DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint
– Paint brush with bristles
– Paint palette (optional)
– alcohol wipe
– weeding tool
Fonts used in design creation:
– Maxwell font by Silhouette – Design #259151
– BFC Magical Writing Handwriting Font by Blush Fonts – Design #387314
– Fall Leaf Dingbats by Lori Whitlock – Design #222723

In this class, I taught attendees how to create their own design using shapes as templates and designing within that to create a project. They were in charge of the design from start to finish.
Here are few of the students creations
Some created the exact same design I developed the class with and others took off on their own, using different fonts and phrases!
It was so neat to see what everyone at the event did!
The best part of creating your own designs is that they can turn out a bit different each time!
Thank you to H & H Sign Supply for being a sponsor for our Silhouette events!
Stay tuned as I have another acrylic sign project coming your way soon sharing some of the techniques we used in class!
