These Cards Are Beachy!

As I mentioned last month, Sally, Anne and I have started up a new club that meets on the second Wednesday of the month (except July, and December - I think). This month we're going to be making a set of five (5) cards and a matching box.

These cards use the Close To My Heart paper - Footloose, and are embellished with Seaside Wooden Shapes and Mocha Opaques. The cards and envelopes fit into this cool box and would make a great gift for someone else -- or YOU!

Before I post the rest of the pictures, here are the details:
  • Footloose Card Workshop
  • Wednesday, May 9
  • 6:30 - 8:30 PM
  • Round Table Pizza at 9500 Greenback Ln # 1, Folsom, CA  [I know it's confusing that we're having clubs at two different RTP, but this is the one near Ace Hardware and Big Lots, where Madison and Greenback come together.]
  • Cost is $15
  • RSVP to register by April 30 [Send an email to me at montanabaitshop@hotmail.com]
We will have a limited number of spots for this workshop, so please respond early.

These cards were really fun to make and I know you'll love how they turn out. The wooden shell shapes are really beautiful.  The cards are all 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". The project includes 5 cards with envelopes and the box.
Here are some more pictures showing the card details:

April Cards

Wow, we've had a great crafting month so far. Anne, Sally and I put on a banner workshop last week and everyone made such great banners. I had great plans of taking lots of pictures to post here on my blog, but those ladies had me running! I didn't even see all the completed banners and I didn't get one single picture.

Here's an idea -- if you were at the banner workshop last week, take a picture of your banner and send it to me. I'd love to post some photos of the finished projects. Better yet, put yourself in the picture too!

Okay, on to the next papercrafting opportunity. Tomorrow night (Wednesday, April 18), Sally and I will have our monthly club, affectionately known as S101. We'll be making cards this month and Sally has already posted hers on her blog. (Check the right side of this page -- there's a link to Sally's blog.)

And now here are mine.

I had a great time making these. I especially love how these flowers turned out.  I'll put together a post later on to tell you how I made them -- but I don't want to let the cat out of the bag before our club tomorrow night.

Let me know what you think!
