    I also like the refreshers! Too much to remember on my own so it’s good to be reminded of all the great tricks!

    Couple of things:
    1. Love the all-in-one downloads for the weekly tutorials They provide a mini lesson every week with the bonus of all we need to practice!!
    2. Also think it’s a great idea to pull tutorials out of the archives periodically. New scrappers have never seen them, and older scrappers like me can always use a refresher. 🙂
