Technique Tuesday--Ali Style

If you love Technique Tuesday, and you love Ali Edwards, you aren't going to want to miss class this Thursday. I've got 4 spots left in the Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday kit class. We're going to complete 1 layout and a card from the kit, as well as an additional layout using YOUR NEW STAMP SET. That's right, if you take this class, you'll not only leave with 2 layouts and a card, you'll leave with a special edition Ali Edwards acrylic stamp set that can't be purchased--you can only get it by taking the class. You'll also receive a small stamp pad and acrylic block with your kit--all yours to keep! Call or email NOW to make sure that you get in on this! 884-7776 or is how you can get a hold of us.

The layout below isn't the one we'll be doing this Thursday; it's one I taught at the January Technique Tuesday class. It does use some of Ali's stamps that we carry, as well as several of the Technique Tuesday tiles. It also uses Bazzill cardstock, BoBunny dotted cardstock, Sassafras Las printed paper, KI lace cardstock and brown ink.

Have a good day!
