Criss Cross Cards


I taught a Christmas card making class yesterday at Ashburn Family Scrapbook Center...8 different cards, they could make as many as they wanted in 2 hours. WHEW! That was fun, but exhausting. I've worked so long preparing for that class that I have neglected my monthly Teaching Techniques class that I teach this Saturday! 5 days away and I have not prepared. Kely (store owner) asked me to use the 2 Karen Foster papers and pinch tabs (pictured right). She also asked me to do a scrapbook page with it. Okay, so I couldn't see me doing a scrapbook page with a New Year's theme AND I have been wanting to try these criss cross cards for 3 months now since I first discovered them at the end of September. (Thank you, Ms. Cambria Turnbow! http://cambriaturnbow.blogspot.com/) After I cleaned up from my card class, I grabbed the 4 colors of Bazzill cs to coordinate with these papers and I just made these two cards this morning. Don't you think these could also go for anniversary cards? Even the one on the right...if you wrote "Olive you" on it? Maybe the one on the right could even be a birthday card?
Okay, now I'm off to design a simple scrapbook page too. Yes, it will be simple. Hey, 2 cards and a simple scrapbook page is a good value for a $10 class.
