Sunday's Projects

We will make two projects at Sunday's Idea Book party.

First, you will make this cute box cut out using the Artiste Cricut cartridge from the new For Always paper. The stamping is from the Family Love set and we'll use a masking technique to get just the sentiment that we want to show. It is the perfect size for a piece of chocolate.

This second project is a 3x3 card with the new Claire paper. You will distress the papers with sandpaper to give it that worn denim look. The sentiment is from the 4 My Friend stamp set. 


The party is from 1:30 - 3:00 pm this Sunday, February 24 at my house in Arnold. To RSVP, just send me a quick email.
Can't wait to see you!
