I {heart} hearts class

Happy Saturday morning everyone!
and thank heavens it's the weekend, which means a little lie in for yours truly, followed by frantic preparations for this afternoon's class. Speaking of which, here's what the lovely ladies will be making this afternoon
The set features the I {heart} hearts stamp set, which is perfect for so many occasions - including of course Valentines day. I know we're a few weeks early, but it already seems a distant memory given that I'm currently designing Easter projects as crafty people have to constantly be an occasion ahead to give time to send things by snail mail! So here are the projects in a bit closer detail, first we have the easel fold with hearts stamped in riding hood red ink and the easel prop is made from lots of hearts punched out of riding hood red cardstock using the heart to heart punch. The 'amour' greeting is from the artistic etchings stamp set.
Secondly we'll be making a card featuring the heart treat cups filled with red Jelly Belly beans (assuming there are any left by the time we get to class, as I keep munching them!!). The crumb cake background is inked with the en francais background stamp and the rounded tab uses the 'love' sentiment from tiny tags. the 'be mine' border around the heart is from the sweetheart stamp set.
The third card is a simple C6 fold, using the broadsheet alphabet used to spell 'Love'. Then lots of punched hearts, from love letter DSP and a mini envelope made from the petal card punch. I've gone a bit mad with the ribbon ruffling this month - but I love the effect that the satin ribbon gives!
And finally a little origami treat box with a belly band, made from crumb cake cardstock with a little liner box in basic black. the belly band is decorated with punched hearts and tags, and the sides of the box use the scalloped heart from the sweetheart stamp set along with the 'amour' greeting from artistic etchings.
The instructions and a class kit are now available to purchase here if you'd like to have a go at making this set. The next class is on Saturday 19th February if you fancy joining us - details are here.
