Come join me for a fun time of making Valentine cards and envelopes for your loved ones!
We'll learn a few easy lettering styles and then play with fun ways to decorate both cards and envelopes. All skill levels are welcome--including kids!

SUPPLY LIST
There are a lot of supplies listed here, but I want you to know that you DO NOT need to have everything. If you only have some markers and paper, you can still make great cards and envelopes.

I will demonstrate a lot of options, and if you choose to try some after the class, you can order then. Remember, you have access to the videos with no time restriction.
