I facilitated my first card making class at Scrappn'Savvy last night and did we ever have fun!  The six participants were awesome.  I loved the way they interacted with each other, sharing tools and ideas!  Here are the cards we made:  


A Big Buckle Father's Day Card.  Had to get creative to cut the slot for the belt.

An "S" fold Fourth of July Card using paper from WeRM, ticker tape and confetti.  The edge is punched with the Martha Stewart star border punch and the phrases are cut from Cricut cartridge "Stand and Salute".

A simple happy birthday card using the Sew Ribbon tool and one of the Sizzix/Hero Arts Stamp and die cut.  The patterned papers are from WeRM Anthologie series.  I am NOT a stamper, but I am loving these stamp and cut designs.  This set comes with some really cute cupcakes as well!

I am busy designing the cards for the next three month's classes.  I am especially excited about the papers I chose for the wedding card we will be making in July--it is going to be BEE-GORGEOUS!

I have been so remiss in keeping up with my blog!  So here is a new post.  At the February crop, I was making my Valentine cards and everyone loved the diorama cards I was working on. So they asked if I would teach it at the next crop. So I "taught" a little card making tutorial at a crop last weekend and I want you to see some of the awesome creations of the talented ladies who were there!

A little Valentine inspiration!

Bright and cheerful!

 Who wouldn't love getting this card?

 I love this sock monkey!

 I know the kid who got this one loved those cute dinosaurs!

 This is one of my creations

 And this was one of the Valentine cards I had made that got them requesting that I show them how!

 This is going to my niece for her birthday!

 And this one is for a special friend!

I had a wonderful time teaching this card and I so love seeing how people put their own spin on the basic idea!  For cutting the holes we used spellbinders dies, creative memories cutters or the fiskars shape system.  These cards are actually quite simple and you can find tutorials on them at YouTube--just search for "diorama card".
