A Quick Post...

Here's a quick and simple b-day card that I recently made and did not get a chance to post. I think this works well for a man. The cardstock is Kraft and then I just used some scraps of ds paper to make a central border. I also punched a circle from coordinating ds paper and layered the corderoy button over it. The small medallion stamp + sentiment were both from this year's SAB.

Monday Class Projects- A Flower Theme!

Here are the four projects that we will complete at tonight's class. The theme is 'Flowers' which seems very fitting for the month of May!The Flower Pot Pocket Card has an insert with a message on it! I love this card because it's so bright and colorful! Next, is the Scallop Circle Tote w/Paper Flower embellishment. I love making these flowers & am excited to share with you! Very versatile and lots of options for different styles and looks. As you can see, there's a box in the middle of the two scallops for holding a small gift. Note the Crushed Curry cardstock- this is retiring, so if you love it, stock up before it's too late. The Eyelet Border Punch Flower card features yet another paper flower. Very pretty and definitely springy! This flower was made using a 1x12" strip of paper, punched w/the eyelet border punch, & run through the crimper. It's attached to a sticky-strip covered circle. Very fun to make!

The first three projects turned out to be a little more time & material-consuming than I originally planned. SO, the last project is a simple clothes pin magnet. Cute, easy, & still flower-themed! The flower is made from 4 tissue-paper scallop circles, made in the same way as the flower on the circle tote. I attached a magnet to the back which makes this the perfect cheery & useful accent for your fridge!

If you did not get in on the RSVP for tonight's class, feel free to email me to purchase the class kit, which will include all supplies needed + instructions to make these projects on your own!
