The holidays are just around the corner and I know JUST the thing to get us all in the mood! Come and make four gorgeous, special Holiday Cards ready to send to that very special someone. We will be using new product from the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue and from the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue and will be learning some new techniques and tips that you will be able to use later on other projects.

You will get all the materials – including envelopes – to create these special cards; all you have to bring is your favorite double sided adhesive (SNAIL Adhesive, Fast Fuse Adhesive) and your excitement at having some time to yourself to create four Holiday Cards that will WOW your recipients.

I limit these classes to just six people so everyone can get as much one on one attention and assistance as they want.  This means that if you want to come, you will want to sign up as soon as possible!  All this Christmas Joy for only $27.00.

Come and get your Christmas on with me and learn some great techniques and designs and have fun doing it!
