My Creative Classroom...

Hi Everyone,
I have been making cards although I haven't blogged them here over the last few weeks. 
I found a website that does classes called My Creative Classroom.  The Class Im doing is CAS Cards Workshop - Spring.
Now I love making CAS Cards, so this was right up my street. 
Im going to show you the cards I made over the first 2 weeks today and then next week will show you my creations from week 3 and 4!
Jeri Parks is the Tutor and shes great with her feedback for us all, letting us know where we are going right and wrong!!! Ive had a couple of bin jobs!!! Oops!!! 
I would really recommend this course as although its primarily about CAS Cards its making me think about my placement in all my creations!!
Week One.
For this card we had to try something we dont normally do so I picked repetition and shape. 
Week 2
Had me scratching my head with these 2!! I had to use a single line as my guide. 
This second one isnt perfect but its all stuck together!! Oops!! Wee learning curve there dont stick down till perfect!!
This one I  used complexity and texture to guide the eye.
 I think this one was my fav out of the first 2 weeks. 
So there you go, Thanks for dropping by. Needless to say tonight Im off to make a CAS Card!!! 
Hope you are all well and having a nice start to the week, the sun has been out here today so felt really like spring!!
Love and Sparkles

Thank you for letting me know the photos were sorted. I love all your cards but I think the last one is my favourite. This looks like a really useful class to do I will have to look out for it being repeated

Have a great week

You are always fab at CAS Cards Hazel… and these are all beautiful… wonderful layouts and colours…. it's hard to pick a favourite but everything has come together so beautifully on the last one… I love how the heart ties in with the sentiment! :-))
Hope you managed to get some sunshine… it's been a lovely day weatherwise.
Love and hugs

Hi Hazel, those are really classy cards! Love CaS myself and these are great examples of them - I've often found that what I thought was going to be a simple card with very little embellishment turns out to be one of the most difficult. I suppose if you've got very little else on the card what you do have matters!

I noticed you said in the posts below this one that you aren't too well - hope you are feeling better soon.
