New Class: Have a Sparkly Day

Join Elisabeth for this three-card class featuring the fantastic mini stamps from Stamplistic adorned with Swarovski crystals!

Please bring you basic class kit and don’t forget your favorite fussy cutting scissors!

Cost is $25 payable by cash or check only. Dates Available: Friday, March 8th: 6pm – 9pm; Thursday, March 28th: 6pm – 9pm; Saturday, April 6th: 12pm – 3pm. Email elisabeth@paperanthology.com today to reserve your spot!
