Session Topics for Save and Stamp Workshop

You will probably want to just watch the videos first. You may want to take note of items you will need to complete each project. Gather them. Then watch and stop, watch and stop as you make the new creation. Questions? ask them via email and I will either answer you then, or I will demo again at the beginning of the next session. I'm excited to get started!
