Stretch Your Dies

You’ve used and loved your die-cutting machine for years—and now it’s time to step up your die-cutting game! In Stretch Your Dies, you’ll learn new tricks, techniques, and ideas for putting your favorite dies to work to create truly unique cards.

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.
