Michael Strong's monthly zoom class: August

At the end of each month Michael Strong
organizes a zoom class, not that the stores are closed.
This is a wonderful opportunity for those of us, who cannot
attend his classes, because we live too far away,
to be able to participate through the computer!

Michael makes us each a package of cards that we will 
assemble during the zoom class.
You pay $ 25 (incl. postage) and he will send the
package to your home address. It is a lot of fun to see
everyone , craft and chat at the same time.

Above you see the 5 cards we made this month and
I always give it my own touch too.
Card 1: I added the circle stamp on top with a pink
sticky pearl. Lost one of the flower punch outs,
so I added a bigger pearl there.

Card 2: for this gatefold card I added the 
cloisonné craines (not available anymore).

On  card 3 I added Mike's mini heart stamp in the circle
with some gold holographic dot on it.

Card 4: with a grid background, where we had to add
all the punched out squares and circles. I added
Mike's gold embossed mini flower with foam tape.

This is the inside of the card.
Here I added also a flower stamp.

For this card # 5 we needed a gris to add all the punched
out squares. Mike will adde this grid to his BLOG,
so you can try this too. You find the butterfly stamp here.

I loved the grid and scanned it and printed it out to
make some cards of my own. Here is one with
Mike's latest star stamp (soon in the catalogue)

And another variation is this one with the shell stamp.

Hope you liked seeing all the cards and now
you think to yourself: I want to attend too!
Well the next class is September 26. There will 
be two sessions. If you are interrested send an email
to Michael Strong:

Thank you for looking,
stay safe and
keep crafting!
