Learn how to use a 6x6 scrapbook paper pad to create a set of beautiful greeting cards. The class works with one set of papers and looks at various card layout ideas, tips for card making with pattern paper, fussy cutting, using up paper scraps and more. 

Learn how to paint your own holiday ornaments and use glass paints and a raised outliner to create beautiful designs. Glass paints are a translucent medium, the light can travel through the colours and this gives whatever glass object you’re painting a lovely effect when the light catches the colours. Hanging ornaments are great decorations for the holidays and make lovely gifts as well. This class walks students through the process of using the glass paints and creating their own ornament.
