A Reason To Smile Class

I was lucky enough to get the Reason To Smile stamp set FREE from the June Stampin' Up! promotion. You could get this set FREE too if you order $125 worth of product during June - there is still time! Email me your order at or call me on 0411113530.

I was playing with the set and found myself using Melon Mambo and decided it would be nice to do a class using the stamp set.  I found the images quite a challenge when it came to designs but I ended up with 5 different styles.  There are many more options with this pretty set, these are just a few.
