My February Card Class

Hi Friends! This winter has been challenging with regards to our internet connection, to say the least, which is why I haven't been able to post this week! Living in such a rural location, we have to use a satellite internet service and it turns out our current provider failed to inform us about a cap on our usage each month... Uploading my videos quickly takes us beyond our limit and we end up running on 'limited rate', which slows things down to a crawl that is even worse than the old dial-up speeds. This makes doing anything on the web something of a nightmare, with a very sketchy connection that is virtually useless. Not impressed. This week has been quite frustrating, as I'm sure you can imagine. Suffice to say, once our contract is up we'll be switching providers. That being said, we've also had our power going off and on, due to the weather.  Ah well, in the grand scheme of things, it's not the end of the world. The good news is you are now going to get four new videos all at once to make up for lost time! LOL  I'm sure you won't mind the extra viewing...

...last week I taught a class with some new ladies I met who wanted me to do quite basic cards, with no Big Shot and nothing 'cutesy' - not an easy task for me.  As it was, I HAD to use the Polka Dot embossing folder on the Lotus Blossom card, I simply couldn't resist!  One of the ladies also requested I demonstrate how to use the '2-step Stampin' sets (which are a favourite of mine). So without further ado, here are the four cards, with videos, from this month's class:

I hope you enjoyed today's cards and videos.  For the most part they were pretty basic but sometimes simple cards are the best ones to demonstrate in classes, especially when you're not sure what kind of stampers will be there and whether or not they're beginners. Regardless, it's always good to have some quick card layouts and techniques up our sleeves, right?
