It's Really Been that Long???

I can't believe I've been away from my blog and YouTube channel for so long! What can I say but the obvious! I've neglected the sharing part of my craft!  I have created a lot of stuff since my last post, I've just not blogged or made videos!  I would promise to do better, but I'm not sure how well I'll keep the promise, so I'll just tell you that I aim to do better!

I've taught two card classes this year with 5 cards each. Here is the first batch:

Here are some of the fun things I used on the cards! I used the Tim Holtz decorative strip "Spring Greenery" to create the "Thinking of You" card. I must tell you that I'm not a fan of these dies!  Maybe it's me, but I can never get them to cut right!  Very disappointing!
I used Diemond Dies to make the Happy Birthday Banner card.  I can't remember exactly how many there are in the set, but it is something in the order of 8 or 9 dies that nest together.
 For the Christmas card I used one of the Graphic 45 papers from the 12 Days of Christmas collection.
I used the cloud dies from My Favorite things to make the Baby shower card.
Lastly and I used multi-colored polka dotted washi tape on the top and bottom of the Cupcake card to enhance it.

Here is a picture of the cards for my second class:


The Christmas card was made using the Sizzix Tim Holts Die and Stamp set and was colored using my Spectrum Noir pens.

The chicks and the bunny in a cupcake used on the Easter cards is from Cottage Cutz.

The banners on the baby card are from My Favorite Things.

I got everything to make the masculine birthday card at JoAnns, corrugated cardboard and plus paper and embellishments from My Minds Eye.

I just posted a You tube video showing a bunch of Easter cards including the two shown in the picture above!

Hope you enjoyed!  Happy Easter! And expect to see me post another article in the next couple of days!
