The Fine Print of What You Want to Know!

When is the class?

I pre-record all my online classes and post them so they’re convenient and accessible for you. 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!

Your class is available as soon as you register! You will be sent an email with the sign on information.

How long is the class?

Your class will be just like being with me in the same room! Altogether we’ll spend just over an hour and a half together. You’ll find I’ve broken each card into its own pre-recorded video so you can take it in manageable chunks.

I suggest you watch the videos first to get an idea of the steps involved. Then cut up your supplies and follow along with the videos again to make them yourself. You can stop and start the recording as many times as you need to.  The supplies and measurements written tutorial pdf gives you the exact cuts to make so you can start creating immediately.

Do I need special supplies?

Like all my classes, each one of these cards can be made with regular stamping supplies you probably already have. Just some cardstock, stamps, inks, punches and/or dies and either some Blending Brushes or Sponge Daubers, with a few  of your favourite embellishments. Switch up the cards with different paper, dies and greetings for LOADS 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.

I know you’ll enjoy making different backgrounds for your cards or scrapbook pages using these 4 techniques.

Here’s what other class participants love about my online classes!

The One Sheet Wonder class was amazing. So well done. Excellent presentation with templates and instruction. I highly recommend this class and will certainly not hesitate to take Jo-Anne’s classes again. Well worth taking.

I love the option of taking your online classes. I can never get to Zoom classes or in-person ones as I’m just too busy. So I appreciate having lifetime access and being able to do the class whenever I want. Thank you!

“With Jo’s online classes, I’ve learned all kinds of things for making cards. Watercolouring, using my Stampin’ Blends, layouts, fun folds. Her instructions are very clear and I can easily follow along. I use other stamps and supplies like she suggests and I’m always happy with how they turn out!”
