I hosted a group class with Vicki 2 years ago and it was the first class that included men! She was an awesome instructor and made artists out of us all. Since then she has made me a lot of signs for my home! She is very talented and makes sure everyone is happy with the end results. I hope to come back to another class soon!

I absolutely love all of Vicki’s ideas. I’ve made a couple signs already and am coming back to do more!  Also, you do them on your own and make them the way you want!  Vicki is an amazing teacher and is there with you the whole time answering any questions you have! Also, she gives advice on what colors go together and little things to add to your project to make it different. Even if you don’t think you can do it, trust me you can!  It’s fun, a great environment, and an all around awesome experience!

A friend invited me to come make a sign which I went reluctantly. I became hooked and am now a regular!!!
I’ve made many signs for gifts and my peeps and can’t believe how great they are! Vicki makes it so much fun  that I even booked a family event, so they could experience it as well.

I went for my sisters bachelorette party and had an amazing time! For all of us being first timers,  everything turned out beautiful, thanks to all the help that was provided! Thanks to Vicki for helping make it all special!   We will be back!

My first experience at VSM Designs was awesome! We went for a Limited Edition 3D pumpkin workshop and it was well directed. The class was small, easy to listen and understand  and get help, if needed. We will definitely be going back for more board nights.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time! It was very laid-back and fun environment. Even though we had no idea what we were doing, Vicky made us feel like professionals! Thanks for the great mother-daughter bonding time, memories like this last forever! We will definitely be back!

VSM Designs is a fun and creative way to spend a few hours! Whether you want to make something for yourself or as a gift you should check this out. Vicki has such a great variety of different signs to make along with always coming up with new ideas – pillows & sleds for example!
I have gone there with my friends, my grandkids, and just by myself and really enjoyed each creative session!

We had my daughter’s 7th birthday here! Vicki is so organized and prepared. The two hours went very smoothly and the girls’ boards looked awesome! My daughter felt so special with the novelty board Vicki made for her while we were there. Highly recommended!

I’ve enjoyed going to classes and making Christmas decor this past year designed by Vicki owner of VSM DESIGNS/Boards of Distinction. I made a sled with our family name and a present trio for our front porch. I was able to choose from a wide variety of colors to make my project compliment our home. I added beautiful embelishments to my finished projects.  The workshop was very comfy and I can’t wait to go back for my next project!

-Sherry

Coleman, WI

My home is decorated with signs and decor that either Vicki made or I made at one of her classes. I LOVE her creativity and uniqueness. Her new ideas keep me wanting to come back and make more one-of-a-kind items and memories. I always leave with a beautiful product and totally enjoy my time spent with her!

-Deb

Looking forward to the new ideas Vicki will have for us this year!   LOVE everything she’s created and I’m sure there’s more great things to come.
