Resolution #1--Organize Card-Giving

Hey there, crafty friends.
So, earlier this week I learned that I had won a free spot in a 6-week card class by Kim Kesti (one of my fave Paper Smooches designers), through Big Picture Classes.
Yay for unexpected surprises, and Yay!for the topic of the class: Create and Share Cardmaking.
There are tips for organizing your cards to make the ones you need and make sure they get sent on time, as well as bi-weekly lessons for themed cards, with fun techniques, videos, & guest-designers.
Enrollment is still open--use the link above to check it out!
Here are some cards from the first lesson:
Experimenting with the blackboard technique

Inside of first card
 I didn't have any poster/subway birthday-themed stamps, so created one by assembling some from different stamp sets, placing them all on a 2.5" square block:
Here's a second card, stamping on GREY cardstock:

 The third card features a gift-card pocket.
Added a piece of washi tape to the gift card for easy removal
I don't have a gift-card pocket die, but created a pocket using a piece of cardstock 4.25" x 5", scored and trimmed as follows:
The last card is a clean and graphic beauty, featuring a simple corner-rounder and black glitter paper.

So, consider getting your 2014 card-making off to a productive start. Check out the Create & Share Workshop for a fun and inspirational time!

Happy crafting,
