AND HOW TO USE IT FOR SCRAPBOOKING SUCCESS!

I RECENTLY ENROLLED IN THE STUDIO CALICO CLASS SERIES INKED, AND THE FIRST CLASS IN THIS SERIES IS ALL ABOUT STAMPING WITH COLOR ( I COULDN'T BE MORE EXCITED)!

KEEP READING BELOW TO SEE HOW I MADE MY INKPAD CHEAT SHEET, AND HOW YOU CAN USE YOURS FOR NEW-FOUND SCRAPBOOKING SUCCESS!  KEEP READING >>>
