Valentines for Friends & Family, with Maresa


Remember in Elementary school, how much fun it was on Valentine's Day to open up your "mailbox" and look through all the cards that your friends left for you?  As adults we tend to only focus on our significant others on Feburary 14th, and as such it is often hard to find less "smoochy-lovey-feel-y" cards to give to friends and family.  This class features four cards that are more friendship oriented, leaving you the option to add a more personal message on the inside. 

This class showcases using products in multiple ways, to achieve different looks, thus getting more bang for your buck.  There will also be more great tips & tricks - such as creating that perfect shade of cardstock, and creating custom embellishments.
