This past summer I had the pleasure of attending the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Lancaster, PA from Thursday to Saturday. I took many classes, cropped and shopped 'til I dropped with my fav croppin' buddy C.W. - shout out girlfriend! I shared my haul (a first for me) shortly after the convention with a promise to share what I learned and made during this fabulous weekend of crafting goodness. So, I am making good on my promise. For the next month I will share all the projects and how I made them my own once I got home.
Let's get started with a fun gift card holder class taught by The-Whole-Kit-N-Kaboodle. The projects were designed by Andrea Deer and they are super cute! We made 3 cards in class with another 2 to make at home. Everything was given to us in kits with color pictures and detailed typed instructions. I loved that and the fact that it was fast-paced We didn't have to measure or cut a thing but learned a lot! Great class.
I had never made a single gift card holder before - especially not ones that are so beautifully adorned. This particular design was great for me because I am not as skilled at making male-oriented craft project. It really got my mojo going. I hope you enjoyed "Built Tough" as much as I did!
