MIHM with Kelly Klapstein from Kelly Creates



I could sit and watch brush lettering videos all day.  I love the beauty, the creativity of the backgrounds and the different markers and pens you can use.  I have always loved calligraphy and this brush lettering phenomena was right up my alley.  When Kymona Tracey recommended the practice sheets by Kelly Klapstein from Kelly Creates, I was instantly hooked.  Hear about Kelly's journey into Brush Lettering, learn some fabulous tips for improving your brush lettering and how she was able to turn this fun hobby into a great line of stamps.

  3. I never get tired of Kelly (and Finn) with ANYTHING brush lettering!!!! I currently have small brush pen capital letter practice sheets and all of the monthly practice sheets via Kelly's newsletters. For those of you meeting Kelly for the first time, there is nothing smoother or calmer than watching any video that Kelly letters. So soothing . . .
