Hi all! Sometimes I just want to make a bunch of cards. One of the easiest ways I've found to do that is to stick to using a collection pack. You can really delve into the look and feel of the line and just start creating! So that's what I focused on for this month's class: using a Collection Kit as a jumping off point for creating cards.

To see this month's class, watch the video of the example cards, and download a PDF with step-by-step instructions click here: A Year in Cards - October 2010.

THIS MONTH'S HOMEWORK: Make a card using mainly supplies from a collection pack or crafting kit. Use the sketches included in this month's class as a jumping off point to create some cards of your own, or create your own from scratch. Have fun with it! Upload your creation to the gallery, select this month's challenge, and your card will appear on the class page. You'll also be included in a random drawing to win a TwoPeas gift certificate!

Kristina, thank you for the video tutorial.

I thought I'd tell you that I paused the video twice--once to feed the cats. Although I was just a few minutes late, at least one was letting me know it was time. Then I returned and resumed watching the video. One of my cats started crying again! I went looking out all the windows to see why one seemed to be distressed. Nothing. All were eating. I resumed watching the video again, and I'm sure you can guess by now--more crying only now I realized it was your cat and not mine! LOL.

I love your videos Kristina! This was an excellent challenge. I substituted blue glitter cards from the manufacturer of my collection pack (DCWV) (instead of kraft) and a strip of striped printed paper for your signature white pen stitching to unify my cards. I went with a Christmas theme. This is the first time I used all 3 of your sketches. It was fun to make a unified collection of cards. Now I'm 3 cards closer to Christmas. Hooray! Thanks for the challenge.

Sketch 1, Joy

Sketch 2, Merry Christmas

Sketch 3, Merry Christmas trees

Thanks for the series of classes and videos Kristina!

I missed the part about using a collection pack, I should start reading the whole post instead of just watching the video. But I'm on a very strict non-buying budget this year anyway and I'm glad I got rid of some of my scraps on these cards.

P.s. I started a new job for 16 hours a week on the first on this month. I'm already making a list of much "needed" supplies. LOL.
