For the last year I have been trying to find a group to learn new techniques, now I know there are plenty of YouTube videos out there but really I don't want to spend all my time watching videos when I can be playing with my scrappy stuff. I did join a Stamp'in Up group but was not a fan of their product, had to purchase $25 worth of their stuff which was hard when I don't like something. Then of course I became a Close To My Heart Consultant because I LOVE their product and was getting discouraged that every time I applied to a Design Team I was told no. Well my desire to finally learn new techniques is happening. Also most on a monthly bases I learn something I never knew or try something I hadn't done before. This month was CTMH's new alcohol based markers and blending techniques.
