Tutorials!

Don't you just love this sweet little freedom banner that Michelle made? Wouldn't it be fun to create one of your very own? Wouldn't it be awesome to have detailed instructions available to make creating it that much easier? Soon my friends . . . very soon. We're planning on posting a new tutorial at least once a month. They'll either be project based like this one or technique based (think edge distressing, covering chipboard, maybe a little gesso action . . . ). Look for tutorials on this project and Michelle's cake tower to be posted when the new site goes live on June 1st (they'll also be posted in the wholesale gallery at JBS).


today's kit winner is . . .

  63. I would like to see projects for the all the holidays, but more importantly, I would LOVE to be able to buy the product, prefereably in a kit, to make the project. I know that I can substitute with items that I may have on hand, but there are many times that I want to duplicate the project exactly, and having the product in a kit would make ordering so much easier.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would love to see tutorials on some of Jenni's favorite tips. Tips on her favorite "go to" all time favorite things that she loves to use.

    ReplyDelete
