Announcing--Cards: Beautifully Handmade + GIVEAWAY!

Photobucket
i think it's a well known fact that i'm frugal to the core and i love to use my creative talent to make cards instead of spending outrageous amounts of money (and time) on a card that never exactly looks how i want it to or says what i need it to. so, i've become quite good at making cards. AND, and......i love showing others how to do the same!

that's why i'm super stoked to announce my newest class over at Get It Scrapped......Cards: Beautifully Handmade! REGISTRATION opens TODAY!

Cards: Beautifully Handmade (<----click to register)
Cost $25.
July 13 - 30, Mondays & Thursdays
"Join Tania for a 6-session course, over 3 weeks, where you will learn a diverse range of card making techniques. Not only will you have increased confidence in yourself for making beautiful handmade cards, but you’ll also increase your stash of ‘ready to be used’ cards for every occasion along the way. She’ll also share her knowledge on postal rules and regulations for mailing your embellished cards and those card creations that are unique in shape and size."

  9. Hi,
    Thanks for the offer of a class. Why would this be perfect for me?? Because I'm quite new to card-making and there are so many things I'd like. ...And I am frugal too:) So getting the class for free would really lighten my spending load!

  10. Your class sounds wonderful. I do make my own cards but pretty much just your basic stuff. I think I could learn a lot from this class.

  12. Such cute cards!!! I love to give handmade cards, too. I have such good intentions to make them in advance, but usually am scrambling to make one last minute and then it's just not as cute. I'd hope your class would inspire me to make lots of cute cards ahead of time so that they're ready when I need them. In fact, I may just go make a card now! Thanks for the inspiration and a chance to win more!!
