    Thanks so much for the tutorials… Hello from TN…It’s so thrilling to see stencils and paste make a comeback, yeah, comeback!!! I’ve been crafting a number of years and remember using tons of stencils when I first started making my own greeting cards.
    Now tho, we have so many more wonderful products to help us make beautiful keepsakes for our friends and family… love the colors used on Santa and the presents, they really pop… and can’t wait to hopefully add Chameleon pens to my ever growing paper crafting products collection.
