Class Description for 20 Valentines without Scraps

As with my first class, 15 Holiday Cards in 1 Hour, I am going to make the video tutorial portion free on YouTube and make the workbook a paid extra. I believe you will be able to make the cards without the workbook but you might find it a helpful supplement.

In this class, we will make 20 valentine A2 and slimline cards using cutting templates and sketches. You will use 10 pieces of 6×8 paper and have no patterned paper scraps leftover. The templates and sketches are exclusive to the class and not available other ways. Although there was a version of this tutorial made available several years ago. It has been unavailable for many months now and I have changed quite a bit including adding cardstock mat templates to make the most of all materials.

The templates and the coordinating sketches will also work for other themes. For other themes, simply choose other paper and embellishments.

The workbook will contain full instructions for completing the projects including pictures as well as the sketches, patterned paper cutting templates, and card stock mat cutting templates. There will also be sample photos for reference. You should be able to complete the projects with only the video or only the workbook, but they are designed to compliment each other.
