Three weeks for only $38!!

Please contact me if you have any questions!


30 days. 30 dollars. 30 techniques.

Join me for a whirlwind of paper crafting techniques. Every day, for 30 days, I will provide instructions for a paper crafting technique. Techniques range from simple to over-the-top and will include ink jet transfers, how to create shaped text in Microsoft Word, painting a page background, embossed resists, making your own buttons, hand sewing on paper, and so much more!

Each morning, I'll provide clear and easy to follow step-by-step instructions on how to do the technique as well as a 2.5x3.5" Artist Trading Card demonstrating the technique. There will be both a private forum for you to chat with your classmates or ask questions, and a private gallery for you to show off your creations. At the end of the 30 days, not only will you have learned a lot and been inspired, you will have a wonderful collection of 30 Artist Trading Cards made by you!

The techniques taught will be appropriate for use in scrapbooking pages, cards, and mixed media projects!
