Blend with Friends: Class and Tutorial

Have you tried the new Blendabilities markers from Stampin’ Up!?  You’ll feel like an artist once you get your hands on these amazing new coloring tools and the best way to try them out will be at my Blend with Friends class, August 14th in Spanish Fork, Utah. There are two times to choose from: 10 a.m. or 7 p.m. so just let me know which you will be attending ASAP so I can prepare for you (and a friend).

At this class you will create a card, a “stained glass” box (show below), a gift bag and tag. You’ll also go home with a brand new BLENDED BLOOM stamp (included in the class fee).
