New Stampin' Up! Online Class: The Basics

I've often had customers tell me that they would like a "Basics" stamp class.... Well here it is!  Stampin' Up! is offering an Online Stamp Class and its covering basic tips and techniques (with tutorials and videos!)  You can do it right in the comfort of your own home!

I just downloaded it and think its great for both beginner and advanced stampers.

Learn innovative ways to get the most out of your supplies (from stamps to the Big Shot) with clever tips and all the techniques you need to start creating with success.
Divided into six sections focused on a variety of topics, this class includes videos, step outs, and supply lists for 30+ projects. Join the fun!

It's only $14.95 (no shipping because it's a download).  You do not need MDS to download the file, just your computer... below are a few tips for downloading.
