We will post it on our blog and will have a sample to look at in our Papercrafting store. Sign up dates will vary. We like this company's Kit of the Month idea, because they allow us to only order as many kits as we have participants. So nobody loses!

You will create a fun Spring Layout with brilliant orange, greens and blues. You'll have the chance to work with all new pearl ribbon, frosted embellishments, die cuts, jewels, color vellum and printed cardstock. In this class you will learn to give your pages a little extra dimension by layering and lifting butterfly wings from your page. Enjoy using QQ "Green with Envy" Powder Puff chalking Ink on many different mediums throughout this project including color vellum and frosted embellishments. Receive a green with envy powder puff chalk to take home with you! You will complete a total of four bright and cheerful layouts to add to your album.
