November Lessons 2017

The year may be marching towards it's conclusion but our team of teachers has maintained their enthusiasm for creating brilliant classes.  Due to being November, we thought it was time to create a few fun projects that would make wonderful gifts during the "giving season".  Check out Vanessa's beautiful Photo Gift Box and her Cottage Tin, or Ruth's delightful Glitz & Glam Bags (a great way to give money or a gift voucher to someone!)  There is also a wonderful selection of cards this month to choose from as well.  

We also have some fabulous Christmas Cards created by our talented guest designer - Adriana Bolzon.  Adriana is a master at hotfoil stamping with the Go Press and Foil machine, and this is an awesome opportunity to create beautiful Christmas Cards to give to those you love and also learn more about Hotfoil Stamping!
