Graphic 45 Card Project Sheets

Hello and good morning Blogger Buddies! It's a beautiful day here in southern California. I am trying to decide if the doves that nest in the yard are beautiful or really annoying! They coo nonstop all day long! Who knew? I may just be a bit crabby because my dear husband left yesterday for an 11 day trip to Asia. I am always a bit "cattywampus" when he is away for so long!

Ok, I have some project sheets for you today. I have been creating card sets for Retailer Place in Time Card Classes. I took over that job for Graphic 45 with the April card set. As part of this promotional program, retailers receive a project sheet (via email) with photos of card samples, supply lists, and step-by-step instructions. They then make their store samples, create kits, and teach classes. (They have the option to alter the samples as they see fit.) To see photos of groups making the projects, click HERE.

At the end of each month I am able to share the project sheets with you! So.....drum are the April cards with links to the project sheets! Keep in mind that these are projects that should appeal to both beginners and intermediate crafters, plus be affordable for store owners to kit and teach. These are not "kitchen sink" projects! {grin} My goal is to try to give them at least one technique per set. I think this set has several techniques, actually!
