Tags, Flowers, and More

Michaels (the craft store) recently held an open house. The class instructors showed samples of what they teach in their classes. I showed some of my scrapbooking pages, tags, flowers, and cards. Many people do not realize that Michaels holds classes in their stores. Below are a few of the samples I made.

The tags are from a Tim Holtz inspired Distress and Shimmer class. We make 7 tags in the class (only 5 samples are shown here).

The Flower Wow class teaches you how to make paper flowers using a variety of techniques, from hand cutting to using dies. With a few simple techniques you can take plain card stock to WOW! (Sorry, just had to say it - by the way, I didn't make up the name.)

This is a card sample from the Cricut Sophisticated cartridge card making class. This simple yet elegant design is easy to make with the help of the Cricut electronic cutting machine.
