The memories it contains are priceless. The beautiful 7 x 10 flocked damask covers are the perfect size. This large project is full of FREESTYLE and BLINGAGE. In class, Teresa will teach you how to use BLINGAGE in more clever ways than imagined. It's time to get creative with your embellishments. 

This workshop is technique driven. Learn how to make transparency flowers that are unlike anything you have ever seen, stamping for journaling accents and more. You will learn to score with the Scor-It Board and how to create flaps and journaling spots. Learn how to take things to the next level as you create our own glitter flowers and more. This is one class you do not want to miss!
