Just what I needed. I've only recently became a paper crafter and was confused by the different types of ink and stamps. The information and tips were excellent. Highly recommend.

I recently acquired a ton of stamping equipment and had no idea how to use any of it! This class answered a lot of my to put it to use! Robin is a great instructor...very clear and easy to understand. Please bring us more!

Great beginner class - I'm new to papercrafting and the information presented here is so helpful! Important to note none of the projects are worked during the video but are used as examples of the finished technique being demonstrated, and I like that - I took this class to learn about materials and techniques more than to make the actual projects offered with the class purchase (although those projects are great and I do plan to work several). I especially liked the segments on inks and how the different inks work (or don't) on each type of medium, and on paper and card stock as she explains and demonstrates use and effects on the different weights and finishes. Everything she shows in the class can be applied across all the different ways of papercrafting although the main focus here is stamping - and her demonstration on using the different types of stamps is every bit as relevant today as when this class was first released. I will need to watch this again (and again) to make sure I catch every shred of tips and techniques before giving the projects a try.

This class is great for someone like me who needed an overview of stamping. She covered a lot of information and I found it very helpful. I'm trying to see if I would enjoy cardmaking and stamping. I learned a lot!
