    Make your own cards say 'Wow'!

    What a wonderful book. All of the techniques were easy to follow. Even if you don't use the same stamps that she did your own interpretations will take you on a wonderful journey! I loved learning about blending ink pad colors on glossy cardstock.

    LOVE it!

    This book helped me reinvigorate my creativity. I had become stuck in the doldrums of creating stacks of the same card, but none of them thrilled me. I have used several techniques I learned from this book and have again found the reason I love making handmade cards!
