Using left over papers

To anyone who is coming to my class on September 22nd…Like I promised, here is some samples for you to create with the left-over papers. If you are planning to make the pages and the cards, this is what I used from my stash: 3 – wood stars, 1 – wood tree, Sequins and some gold glitter. If you don’t have these materials, bring whatever you think you would like to use as a substituted.
Please bring 2 – sheet of 12×12 white and black cardstocks. I selected those colors because most of us have it. Also, you need to bring one piece of 5 ½ x 4 ¼ gold paper. If you don’t have any of the papers, I will have it for sale. I will have the rest of the supplies (inks, stamps, embossing folders…etc.) for you. I have one more spot left for this class, if anyone interested!!
