Today I am sharing a project from my first BYO Stamps Class. This class went ahead in a slightly different way to how I’d imagined. Running the class online with everyone in their slippers is certainly going to make it memorable. BYO Stamps Classes are for those who have stamps, but aren’t sure of what
