Always in demand as a demonstration artist and workshop leader, Kelley happily shares her creative ideas, studio secrets and experience with her enthusiastic patrons. 

"I believe in mixed media and I'll use whatever materials I need to achieve the desired effect."

Snowflake Symphony Class


These cards are soooo cool, the recipients won't want to put them away after the holidays are over!! The best part is that they're much easier to make than they look! You'll start with learning the basic twisted easel & accordion/step card folds, then Kelley will show you two ways to use the Viva Decor modelling cream. Each layer of the die cut snowflake centerpiece is embellished with dimensional pearl & gloss pens to give your Christmas cards a lovely polished finish. You'll be using new 2012 dies and stamps to create three spectacular themed cards that you may not want to part with!! Card samples now on display at our store!

SGD's is thrilled to have Kelley Grace come and teach at our store!!  Kelley's work is outstanding!  Her knowledge of products and techniques will leave you in total awe!!  You will not believe everything you will learn!!    Join us for a Kelley Grace Day!!   Classes in the morning and the afternoon!  Stay for the day & craft with Kelley Grace!  (restaurant & variety store in plaza!).  Both Kelley and SGDs will be providing door prizes for both classes and each participant will receive a 20% in-store discount during the workshops.

  1. I was fortunate to take classes with Kelley Grace in Oshawa for a few years. She is truly awesome, and I'm very sad that London is a four-hour drive :(
