Stamping Basics Class

We have had several requests lately for a Stamping 101 class and Debbi Holland was kind enough to take up the challenge. Here are the details:

The class is scheduled for Saturday, May 24 from 1pm - 3pm and the class fee is $15. Debbie will discuss the differences between pigment and dye inks, take a look at the best inks for various papers, the pros and cons of the different types of markers available, and the use of chalks along with other coloring mediums. You will leave with samples you created during the class, as well as a couple of cards. All you need to bring is some double sided adhesive.

This is a perfect class for someone just starting out or someone who needs a bit of a refresher class. If you know someone who may be interested in this class and may not be on our mailing list, please pass along this information.
