I’m never organised to have time to use the Valentine’s Day sets in time. But this year I just had make these lovely cards because I was so drawn to the designer series paper and this is the class that I designed to kick off the New Year.
I really struggled last year to come up with my own designs for things and often found myself CASE-ing (Copy and Share Everything) and although there are no issues with this I found that I felt like I was lacking in creativity. This year I have set myself a goal to use Card Sketches instead and to come up with my OWN designs.
I’ve used a variety of sketches for inspiration.

If we purchase this we need to use it up. I’ve had no issues lately chopping my DSP and using it since becoming a member of Kylie Bertucci’s group on Facebook – Love it Chop it. I hope you love it as much as me and I’ve loved it so much that I have had no issue chopping it #loveitchopit.
This way you can just let the designer series paper do all the work. Although some crafters believe this may be cheating, I believe this is another version of the #simplestamping, where you get a stunning card that looks like a lof of effort has gone in for very minimal supplies.

I’ve also included the use of the foil paper which is another free level 1 item from Sale-a-bration if you spend $90 or more.
You will see from some of the cards that I have used products that are not Stampin’ Up!, or they are retired recently and this is because I am trying to use my stash of buttons, ribbons, twine and use my numerous embossing folders which until now have pretty much sat in the cupboard. I still wanted to show that you can use your existing craft supplies with our products to compliment and don’t be scared to start using that craft stash or it will just become another hobby that you once enjoyed.
If you are interested in attending my classes please do not hesitate to contact me. The cost varies between classes depending on the products used and the venue that the class is run at. This class was 6 cards with a small box and it was $35.
If you are interested in any of the products used and do not already have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I would be happy to help you place an order. If you would like a catalogue please let me know and I will pop one in the post for you.
All supplies are listed below.
