Update on Elizabeth Craft Designs Class

Just a few minor changes to the class times. The first class will be from 4:30pm - 7pm. The second class will start as soon as possible after the first one, but will probably run until 9:30pm.

You will need to bring your Basic Class Kit, and make sure you have wet and dry adhesive, scissors, tweezers, bone folder, pop dots, and a small paper trimmer.

That’s all for now :-)

Jennifer McGuire used this tool in one of her recent videos. Here is one of the cards she made and here is a link to the video - Mini Ink Blending Tool. We have also added it to our Pinterest Board so you will be able to find it later.
