Tis the Season Welcome Board

The lessons are divided into smaller segments so you can easily find topics.  I recommend that you watch the lessons in numerical order so you can see the project from start to finish. Of course, you can always go back and watch them over as many times as you need to in order to grasp the skill being demonstrated. The time it will take to watch each video varies from lesson to lesson, and is shown in parenthesis () after each video link.

It is recommended that you let the video load completely in the browser window before you attempt to play it.  Be patient, this may take a few minutes.  It will depend on the speed of your computer and the speed of your internet connection.

NOTE: To view each video, click on the links below. The video will open in a new window. Close the window to return to this page.

*Remember you can substitute with items you already have on hand or own.  It is OK to come up with your own design based off of what was presented.  Line work can not be included for the stamps since I do not own the images.  Background stencils can also be substituted as you desire.  Hope you have fun.  It is very contagious once you get started and you will want to put these kind of backgrounds on everything.
