Graphic 45 - Time to Flourish - April

I am sharing the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish April class project sheet with you today. (Graphic 45 shared on their blog HERE.)

Each class in this series contains two cards and two tags (three tags this month) using the matching monthly papers from Time to Flourish! Click HERE to print your step-by-step directions for these five projects! For the April class, we are using the April Flourish and Cut Apart sheets from Time to Flourish, as well as the Decorative Stickers sheet. Our Staples item this month is Antique Metal Door Pulls, which come two to a package. The techniques this month are "what's hidden?" as we make use of hidden panels, and fussy cutting!

For the first card, I flipped the door pull upside down and used it as a "vase" for the flowers and postage images. The fussy cut images are so pretty when layered.

I created a hidden panel on the front of the card, which is also a pocket! 

The front of card two not only contains a little hidden booklet, tied closed with twine, but this style of card is a fun way to use up scraps!

The tags this month are the Ivory Artist Trading Tags. Since these tags are small, we will make THREE! 

Tag one contains the second door pull and more fussy cut flowers.

For tag two, I used some of the fun sticker elements from the sticker sheet.

Tag three is another example of fussy cutting that pretty paper!

Remember, these project sheets are released to the Retail Stores the second week of each month. The Consumer's get to see these on the blog on the first week of the following month - which gives the stores time to teach the classes locally. That means you get to see the May set in the beginning of June. For the seasonal projects that are coming to you "late" just think of it as making your cards and tags for next year! It never hurts to get ahead!

Thanks for stopping by!
