August Project Class - Bright Blossoms

For this month's project class we created three fancy fold cards.

The colour combination used for these was Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Island Indigo and Whisper White.

This is a fancy gate fold. When closed, the image panel slots into the scallop circle frame.

The card design is a CASE from one we used for for a Make & Take project we completed at one of Stampin' Up!'s training days last year. 

The next card is a slider easel card - or a pop up slider card. This one and the next one were both found on Dawn Griffith's blog. She has made videos on how to create both of them.

The final card is a double peek a boo card :o) This is such a sweet card. When opened, the sentiments slide over to cover the flowers. A really clever design and very simple to do.

All the cards use the fabulous Bright Blossoms stamp set from the current Summer Mini Catalogue. Don't forget that you now only have a few more days to order products from this catalogue! They are only available until August 31st!

July Project Class - Mouthwatering and Sweet Cake

My July Project class consisted of a Gift Box with three co-ordinating cards. 

I used two stamp sets from the Summer Mini catalogue this time - Mouthwatering (page 21) and Sweet Cake (page 22). They both work so well with the Sweet Shop Designer Series Speciality Paper, also from the Summer Mini (page 21). 

This project also uses some of the new Scented Embossing Powders (page 20).

My ladies had a couple of Colour combinations to choose from this time - the above picture shows them both :o)

Remember you only have a couple more weeks to order items from the Summer Mini Catalogue (up to 31st August).

If you would like to purchase the instructions for this set, you will find the details below. The instructions will be emailed to you as a PDF document within 48 hours ....

Mouthwatering / Sweetcake - Class Instructions - £3.00
