STAMPlorations Mixed Media Tutorial – Melissa Marks Thyme – March 2018

Hi! Are you headed towards Spring in your part of the world? Or would you like to grow some fresh herbs indoors? I may have a project that will interest you. I’ve made some herb garden markers to share with you.
Head on over to the STAMPlorations blog to check the process. I hope that you enjoy seeing the process I used to create these cute little garden markers and are inspired to do a little crafting of your own.
 
I hope that you have a great day.
Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
