Bella Blossoms Class recipes & Video Tutorial

I held this class last night at my home. Bella Blossom

To see how I made these cards, check out my VERY 1st and VERY amateur video tutorial. Don’t mind my sarcasm (if you can catch it) and don’t mind the reversed images. I shot this 1st one from my laptop! I am not sure video is my cup of tea…..maybe with some practice! and a video camera would probably help. (I know I am my own WORST critic) Enjoy!
