I don't know about everybody else, but I am dreaming of warmer climes and sunnier times! This beautiful Echo Park paper makes me think of both those things.

February Stack A Stash, with Bonnie

Image
What is Stack A Stash? Are you one of those people who, come November, are completely stressed out because Christmas is coming and you haven't even contemplated starting your Christmas cards? How about those last minute Birthday cards, do you have spares on hand?

Once a month we will be offering Stack A Stash, each month hosted by a different instructor. In these classes we will be making easy cards that can be adapted to any paper or sentiments.

These classes will be shorter, so that busy people will have a better chance of fitting them into their schedules. The class will always be the last Sunday of each month, so you can know well ahead of time when the classes will be offered. We will always do one Christmas card, and one all occasion card, but will do TWO of each design for a total of 4 cards per class.

Can't make the class? Chances are the instructor will offer kits. Make sure to check the class details if you are interested.
Here are the first two cards for our Febru…
