If you’re planning to take June’s Paper Wedding Crafts class with Lia Griffith, we’ve assembled a list of some of the most frequently-asked questions about the class as well as recommended class supplies so you can hit the ground running (just not with scissors, okay?).

Have another question for Lia? Ask it on our Facebook page.

I’m going to miss the live chats. Will I get a recording?

Yes. We will make recordings of the live chats available to everyone shortly following the discussion.

Is the class going to fill up?

No. Since the class is online, anyone and everyone who wants to take it is welcome. Class capacity = infinity.

And remember: All you need to do to get access to the classes is sign up for $9.95/month Creativebug subscription. This is a screaming deal, folks. Not only do you get access to four weeks of amazing instruction and live chats with Lia, but you can also check out all of the other video workshops on the Creativebug site. And trust us — there are some good ones.

I have a spotty internet connection. Is there another way I can watch the classes?

We’ll be adding the long form class to app soon! At that point, you will also be able to watch Lia’s classes via the Creativebug app on your smartphone or tablet. We will let you know as soon as the long form classes are available on the app.
