Paper Crafting Club Ready to Welcome New Members

Paper baskets class projects

The Robson Ranch Paper Crafting Club has seen steady growth and is always open to welcoming even more new members.

In addition to being a venue to work on scrapbooking, the Paper Crafting Club continues to inspire its members with interesting new techniques in card-making. There have also been some interesting projects for crafting gifts. We’ve made desk calendars, mini baskets, bookmarks, and notepads.

The club sponsors two classes per month, most of which are free. Occasionally there will be a small materials fee.

We also take on charitable projects, making and donating cards for various groups, including first responders, veterans, the animal shelter, and assisted living centers, among others.

As with all clubs, your first visit is free. Come out and see what we do. Someone will be glad to spend time with you. Then you can decide if you’d like to join. New members are presented an informational packet that includes photos of basic supplies and where to purchase them, a cut kit, and instructions for making a basic card. For those with little or no experience, another member is assigned as a mentor, and all members are always happy to help. The yearly dues include the use of all machines and most of the supplies, including papers, inks, stamps, punches, ribbons, and embellishments.

The club meets in the Creative Arts Center on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, contact club president Pat Serveiss at [email protected] or 719-661-1582.
