Playgroup Projects for April

  • April's pages and card projects highlight the Victory papers. Click on picture to get a larger view.
 The cards use the techniques of distressing with our sanding kit and heat embossing on ink stamped images with clear detail powder to enhance the Stamp of the Month set S1204A.  By the way, the Stamp of the Month is either $17.95 by itself or only $5 with a $50 order. The entire set is pictured on page 141 of the Idea Book.
 The pages have the unique look created by hexagons placed in a honeycomb configuration.  The layout was inspired by the single page in the Idea Book on page 35 and the pocket page was inspired by consultants Christina Eisenhauer and Jennifer Rubio. 

Card makers please bring your sanding kit (especially a block), scissors and adhesive.
Scrapbookers should bring adhesive and scissors along with a pencil.
