Colored Bands and 4 Squares

I'm so bummed.  That's 3 classes I've prepped for at the AZ Scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ and all canceled for lack of interest.  Yet I STILL have to come up with 2 classes a month!  That's a lot of research and prep time for basically.... nothing.  Well.  I've decided my April 24th class will be called 4 Squares - 4 Different Looks.  I've seen some really cool cards on Pinterest that started the mojo going! You will see one today.  But first, here's a card using a technique from the April/May 2013 Technique Junkies newsletter.  It is not quite as easy as it seems but my 2nd attempt turned out pretty good to my way of thinking....

My husband even figured out my colors!! I was impressed, I must say!  Sky colors up, grass colors down. All stamps are from A|Muse Studio.  I will have to do this technique again!

This is one of my 4 Squares cards.  I used a Bo Bunny stamp set and a Lawn Fawn set (text).  The cards I will make for the actual class samples will be made with Bo Bunny and Bazzill card stocks.  This is just a prototype for the layout.

Today I received my 2 CDs I've ordered from the Technique Junkies called Move It and Shape It.  I've gotta take a look at them before I do anything more!!!  And with the high winds we are having, inside is a good place to be when one has allergies!

Hi Carol! Sorry your classes turned out to be such a ZERO. I also teach classes and find that the winter months are the more than one way! I just wanted to let you know that I ALWAYS find inspiration even if the class is provide a great place to learn. Thanks so much for being such a giving teacher to the online community!
