Fun with Stencils: Class Wrap Up

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Just finished up another class at Photo Scraps yesterday featuring different techniques and products to use with stencils. Everyone had a good time and hopefully will be inspired to incorporate stencils into their projects.

Since I ran out of paper AND printer ink when I was preparing the card kits, I wasn’t able to give everyone my usual handout listing all of the products. So as promised I am following up today with the product information. Tracy and Lisa asked that I offer another stencil class later in the year. Stay tuned! I’m thinking about ways to incorporate stencils into holiday cards!

And be sure to join me TODAY from noon to 3:00PM at the Photo Scraps Yard Sale. Arrive early for the best deals!
