What do I need to take this class?
All you need to take this class with us is paper, a paper cutter, adhesive and stamps. You do not have to use the same supplies we use to create your projects! It’ll be fun to showcase new tools and stamps but it is not necessary for you to be successful to use all of the same supplies.
Are all the projects scrapbooking?
NO!!! For any of you that follow our blogs you know we LOVE packages and cards and 3D items and scrapbooking and…… There will be a huge variety of projects!
Can you summarize what you mean by 10 classes?
I will re describe the class to you and hopefully summarize it more clearly. For $20, you will receive our first ever exclusive UStamp Class. Included in this class will be a minimum of 10 projects!!!! Each project will be a collection of items, for example 5 cards and a box could be one project. All projects will include step by step photos, dimensions and instructions.

Now Heather and Dawn are offering a Kit to purchase, which cannot be purchased by UK residents… BUT I will be offering my own Kit shortly keep your eyes on this blog as I will make it a GOOD one!

So would you like to go to UNI? to this fun and creative one crammed full with great projects and techniques to recreate at your own pace? mostly would you like to do it for FREE? I am offering a free entry to one of my blog readers, leave me a comment on this post by Saturday midnight and I will use the random generator to pick one name out and announce it on Sunday.
Now see this gorgeous box? You can download the pattern to make your own here on Dawn s blog.
I used Bashful Blue card stock, Certainly Celery designer paper, Heartfelt hostess level 3 stamp set and Circle of Friendship, pumpkin pie ribbon and a half backed pearl form the Pretties kit. The flowers stems were stamped in Versamark and embossesd with clear embossing powder. Filled it with Maltesers but with regret but the time I took this photo they were all gone and some tissue paper was stuffed inside instead. Oh well....I did make the box two days ago.
I ve also made this super bright card for a new found friend, hope you like it Stevie. I used Ballet Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive colour scheme, In the Spotlight hostess set and a chipboard ring all from StampinUp!!! Phew!! now that was a lot of talk...... see ya. M xx
