5 Things I Learned from a Hero Arts Card Class

Hey there Artie! So good to have you with me on the blog, today. For World Card Making Day (WCMD), I took my wife Paula to an all day event with Libby Hickson aka StampinLibby, aka, the Libster of Hero Arts fame.

Besides the 8 fun cards, I have 5 takeaways I want to share with you about taking this class.

1. A lot of went into this class.

  • Let me say that the Libster is no slouch! She had the entire class working like a well-oiled machine! All the card elements were perfectly packaged and complete. Name tags were handmade die-cuts colored and adhered to pins. A little goodie bag with chocolate and a sequin mix came with the class. She had to have spent a good amount of time die cutting, trimming, and putting everything in cellophane envelopes so that the students could create eight cards in about 5 hours.
