How to WOW your friends with handmade cards

By | 11th August 2017

I have released my latest round of card making classes.  They will be so much fun, especially if you like getting a bit inky.  We are focusing on creating amazing backgrounds this month, hence the name Background Glory.  Each background is simple to replicate once you know how and just uses some very basic ingredients.

I get asked all the time about how to take your cards from BLAH to WOW.  And the answer is to keep learning and attending classes is a great way to keep learning.
