Cards, Classes and Questions

I wanted to share the rest of my class cards for the month and answer a question I got last week about classes. I started teaching classes almost a year ago and I love it. I love sharing with other people and teaching them how to do new things. I was asked how I come up with my classes, such a great question, thanks Keshet for that!

I have two card classes each month now, one that uses A Muse stamps and products so that one is fairly easy to come up with. Just pick some new stamps and paper that we haven't used and see what I can come up with. The other class, is Card Creations and it is a little more open.  For this month's class I wanted to do Halloween cards but didn't want to use any of the new papers that we have in the store. We didn't really have enough of anything for a class so I went wandering around the store on the hunt for black and orange paper.
I also knew that I wanted the cards to have a vintage/distressed look to them so that helped me to find some great papers that fit that category. I had seen a few pictures in magazines that gave me some ideas about this fence card. After the paper, I grabbed a few stamps that would fit my theme and took it all home to make the cards.
So that is my process each month, I start with a theme or a color combo and go from there in designing my cards. Let me know if you have any other questions!
