April Class - Easter.

Hi all,

What an exciting class I've had today. The ladies saw the new Mini Catalogue in real life and got to see all the fabulous new goodies that are available to purchase from till the end of September!

Today's class was based on an Easter theme and doubled up with using lots of punches to create an Easter bunny card and a fabulous little Easter bunny box using new product from the new Mini Catalogue, the Scallop Envelope Die!!!

Using the Big Shot which is new to the Mini Catalogue and the Scallop Envelope Die, the ladies were able to create an Easter bunny basket by cutting out four Scallop Envelopes adherred together to assemble into a box.

Here are the Easter projects that the ladies made this morning:

Projects side by side:


Please note: The ladies' projects today used matching DSP in Delightful Daffodil for the card and box. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough paper to do this for the samples.

Sentiment used is one of many sentiments from Occasional Greetings as seen in the Idea Book & Catalogue on P. 21.


Hope you enjoyed having a look at today's class.

Back tomorrow with another card...

Until then,

Enjoy your day.

  5. I love the Scallop Envelope for these baskets - don't think I've used it as an envelope yet, lol. The little bunny behind is so cute - great touch.
