2010 - A Year in Cards

Happy 2010 everyone! I hope you all had a lovely festive season. This time of year is traditionally one for new starts and new plans, and I like many others have been making new years resolutions. And yes, surprise surprise, one of mine is to blog more!
This should be made easier by my planned projects for this year. Each month there will be a new instalment in 2 new 12-part projects: "A Year in Cards", and "My Life in Scrapbooking". Pictures of each project will be posted here as the month goes on.

Here's a sneak-peek of the YiC project. We will be working on a Card Journal, which will have a double-page spread for each month. Every month there will be 2 birthday cards, and 2 other cards, covering topics such as thank you, get well, anniversary, new baby, sympathy, as well as event cards such as Valentines, Mothers day, Fathers Day etc. Each month will also look at a different technique.

Each class will include 4 cards and 2 card-pockets to fit into the journal. The journal itself will be made in a separate class, which will run in January, April, July and October. There is no obligation to attend a journal class, and the card classes will stand alone without the journal. All classes are limited to 8 attendees.

January's technique is spinner cards. Check out the Meetup gallery (under Year in Cards) to see examples. We will be making 2 x birthday cards and 2 x thank you cards.
