Creative Cardmaking Basics Starts January 23rd

I'm so excited!  I had so many people asking me why I was so quiet in the last quarter of 2016 - well it's because I was busily working away on my very first online class, being hosted over at Big Picture Classes!


Teaser no 1

What's the class about?

Well you all know I love my supplies - all of them!  I thought I'd start by showing new card makers how to use their basic supplies in a few different ways to make them stretch just that little bit further and so Creative Cardmaking Basics was conceived.

The class description is:

You don't need every tool out there to make beautiful cards! Kate Palmer encourages you to take your basic supplies further by teaching you 14 amazing techniques using dye ink pads, stamps, embossing powder, paper and embellishments. She walks you through each technique with a detailed video, sharing helpful tips that will help you master each one. You'll wrap things up by combining what you've learned into a series of cards, and leave the class with a creative arsenal full of clever techniques.


Here's a little peek at what we'll be doing to some plain white ribbons and flowers!
