Today is Watch and Learn Wednesday! The video I am sharing today is from Connie Stewarts's Simply Simple 2-Minute Tuesday Tip-Adhering Vellum Perfectly. I don't know about you, but adhering vellum has always been tricky for me. Connie has a simple, but effective way to tackle this problem. Take a look!

Saturday and Sunday Easter/Spring Card Classes (click here if reading in email)

My Saturday and Sunday Classes wrapped up a week of making Easter/Spring Cards.  Everyone did a great job and we all had so much fun.  There wasn't as much talking while making these cards, because everyone was concentrating on coloring their art work with watercolor pencils and our Blends, but there was still time for visiting! Enjoy this look at our classes.

Watch and Learn Wednesday! (if reading in your email, click here)

It's Watch and Learn Wednesday and today I want to share a couple of videos from a demonstrator in England, Liz Yuille (I just love listening to an English accent!). In the first video, she demonstrates how to re-ink a stamp pad.  In her second video, she demonstrates how to refill a Stampin' Write marker. Both of these require the Ink Refills and she made a good point in that the 2016-2018 In Colors will be retiring at the end of May and now is the time to order the Ink Refills for those colors (Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo,  Peekaboo Peach, and Sweet Sugarplum).  Hope you find these videos useful!

Watch and Learn Wednesday! (if reading in your email, click here)

Hi, Everyone!
It’s “Watch and Learn Wednesday” which means it’s time to learn some card making tips.  Today I have chosen a video that was posted by another demonstrator, Wendy Cranford, on The Basics: Measuring for Card Making.  She does an excellent job and the video is a little less than 10 minutes.
This is a topic that several of my customers have asked for more information on.  Rulers aren’t always the easiest thing to read. A quote from one of my customers: “What the heck do all those lines mean?”. 
Watch and Learn!
