Guess What I’m up to now??

9 Apr

For any of you who live locally, I am getting ready to start teaching classes at our local Ben Franklin store.

My first class was officially last Saturday, which was called Scrapbook 101.

Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames of Grass Valley are starting to do a series of free classes.  Be sure to check their page to see what teachers are doing what.

My next class, this Saturday April 13, 2013 will be about 2 page layouts.  I will be showing you my favorite way to do a 2 page layout and get you practice the technique yourself!!

I am most excited to let you know about my Mother’s Day Card Class coming up real soon on Tuesday April 23, 2013 from 1:00 to 3:00pm.

Do you wonder what  my title means?
Well I just realized, I have 3 cards that I have made for Cheery Lynn Designs and I have never blogged about them here yet.
So you are going to get a treat today since I am sharing 3 for the blog post of 1!
I made these cards as submissions to a publication.  Two of these got chosen, so I was very excited!  The publication has come and gone, so I am sharing these now.
This was a card I made for the Easter holiday.
I just love the background on this.
I used the Wittle Weavers and Stitcher Plate Large Circle for the background.
The “sun” was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.
 The “sun” was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.
The butterflies are made from Exotic Butterflies Small 2 dies.
I love using those Wittle Weaver’s for the background of cards.
 This card was made for a theme called Haberdashery and Dress Making.
I used the Wood Grain Embossing Plate for the background.
The dress is made from layers of paper cut with the Anastasia Border.  Behind the dress I used the Ribbon Eyelet Border and Buttons 1.
 Lastly I used the scallops from the Border Carnival for my corners and also used the following dies to finish off this card.  Optimistic Font 1/2″, Pretty Petals and Zig Zag Ric Rac.
Lastly I have this simple but elegant card!  Oh and it happens to match our current challenge which is Add A Flourish.  Have you entered yet?
For this card, I used my favorite embossing plate, Black Eyed Susans.
I also used the following dies on this card:  Zig Zag Ric RacRibbon Eyelet Border, Fanciful Flourish and Medium Rose.
So there you go, 3 cards that would be perfect for holidays we have coming up!
