February Card Class "Cute Crew"

This month’s class was named after the Cute Crew Punch Box from the Occasions Catalog.  This set comes in a pretty tin which contains the Cute Crew stamp set, scallop tag punch, 2 x 2 ¼” clear block, 4 watercolor pencils and a Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Spot.  In class, we used four of the six stamp set images plus the scallop punch to make a set of cute cards.  Whisper white notecards, gingham gala adhesive-backed sequins and brights designer series paper were also used in all of the projects.  Card layouts were inspired by Cindy Baughman (my awesome upline!), who designed a set of notecards for one of our Inspiration Nights.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.

January Card Class "Hey Love"

This month’s class was named after one of the new stamp sets in the Occasions Catalog, Hey Love—sooo cute and, yes, you know it has critters!  I think the otter is my favorite, no the bird, no the skunk, no the chipmunk/beaver…I just can’t decide.  Hope you fall in love with them too!  The only critter in the set that we did not use this month is the alligator.  For the fourth card, two Sale-A-Bration items are featured—the yummy cupcake and dazzling foil sheets.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.
