Included with the many extra die cuts and embellishments you will receive in your kit, a brand new exclusive design has been added from the Seven Paper Dolls range of dies, along with a set of Seven Paper Dolls resin frame embellishments.  You will be provided with full colour printed instructions of the cards so you can create at your leisure.

This all day function is a fully catered event with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided in the cost of the lesson.   Places are very limited so be quick to secure your seat for a full day of crafting, eating and socialising with like-minded people.  An opportunity not to be missed!!
