    I think this class is several years ago.....doesn't seem up to date on the products

    It was mentioned that you got the metal pin container from Ikea however you was not mentioned where the circle cutter could be purchased from

    It would have been nice to know the actual name of the ink color and maybe where it was purchased if someone wanted to get those particular ink pads

    Really enjoyed the class. I would like to know what kind of ink you used for the embossing. Also, doesn't some of the ink dry before you get the stamp set on the paper? Some inks seem to dry very quickly. And, last, but not least, what kind of paper did you use, just regular cardstock, or a water color paper. Thank you.
