What Else You Need to Know!

When is the class?

This is a class I offered g=free through Facebook in September 2023. So all the videos have been downloaded and edited and will be released on October 18th! You can watch them anytime that works for you! And you have lifetime access so you can do the class right away, in a few weeks or again next year!

On October 18th at 4:30 pm, I’ll send you an email with the class page so you can create your sign in. Then watch, learn & create along with me!

How long is the class?

Your class will be just like being with me in the same room! Altogether we’ll spend just over three hours together through 7 different videos. That way, you can take the entire class in manageable chunks.

You can stop and start the recording as many times as you need to.  The supplies and measurements written tutorial pdfs give you the exact cuts to make so you can start creating immediately.

Do I need special supplies?

No! That’s the best part!

I have one whole video devoted to the top tools and supplies I use, many which you will already own, or have a version of, in your own card making stash. Each of these cards can be made with regular stamping supplies you may already have.

There’s a second video to help you create a crafting toolkit just for this class. You’ll find you’ll use it over and over again with different items thrown in for a shot of inspiration! 

You will need to have some dye ink pads (Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink pads), some Basic White and coloured cardstock, stamps and if you have a couple punches with a few  of your favourite embellishments.

Switch up the cards with different colours, dies and greetings for UNLIMITED of creative options!

I provide all the Stampin’ Up! product numbers, so if you’d rather use what I have, I’ve listed everything in my written tutorial to make it easy.  If you live in Canada and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, you can click on my 24-7 online supply shop here to order them and have them arrive on your doorstep in about a week!

Can I pay another way besides PayPal?

Yes, if you would rather not use PayPal, there are two ways to make your payment.

1) if you live in Canada you can pay with an etransfer to When you’ve decided this class is for you, email me your payment in this way. Then I’ll reply to you with an email and include the link to get set up on my class site. Although I attempt to provide almost immediate service, please give 24 hours to receive a notice when you make payment via etransfer. Then allow 24 hours for class access.

2) I can create an invoice through PayPal you can pay with a credit card. Email me at to request this and provide your email address. Please allow 24 hours for class access.

Having YOU be successful in a fun and stress-free learning environment is my number one goal.

Here’s what others have said about this class!

All wonderful tips, Jo-Anne! Thank you! You give us faith in ourselves! And offer so much encouragement, which is what I need!

This task was awesome for me because I usually take a looooong time designing one card. I pushed myself and tried to design/stamp these within about 1/2 hour. You really helped me stretch myself. Thanks Jo!
