Stamping Techniques

Happy as Today - Workshop July 22, 2017

I really enjoyed the July workshop.  We had a great group of people and had fun playing with the new 2017-19 In Colors from Stampin' Up!   The new color Lemon-Lime Twist makes the two berry colors and teal green pop.   I also like the Dapper Demin and Lemon-Lime Twist color combinations and will definitely  be combining them at the September workshop.
