    Thanks for adhesive chart, its very useful. Your class in Boise was a highlight of my card making experience.

    • Hi Mary-Jane, I’m so glad you found the information helpful, I did too! Also, glad you were able to attend one of my classes while I was traveling, they were so fun to teach. I miss it a bit.
