Pattern Play

Love pretty paper? Grab your favorite patterned papers and join us for helpful tips, tricks, and techniques in this all-new, all-video class! Join Kristina Werner, Jennifer McGuire, and special friends for Pattern Play.

NOTE: This class was offered some time ago. Many of the products used on card samples might not currently be available. While the techniques are still relevant, we understand the frustration of not being able to acquire the exact same supplies. Because of this, we have permanently reduced the class price.
