Class projects, Crop & Create Delivered

Crop & Create Delivered – Brutus Monroe

Our final mini class before the event was officially opened, and Brutus Monroe sure didn’t disappoint. What great projects these were, and so vibrant and fun to make! This is a brand I’d heard of before, but hadn’t tried, so this was a great opportunity for me. I have to be honest and say that I started doing some pre-work for this class and was having so much fun I ended up making the cards before the class started … oops. But it goes to show how thorough the class instructions are for this event.

Some things I loved about this class:

  • The colour palette is soooo bright and cheery and so up my alley – it makes my heart sing. It was also great that Michael used Gina K Design inks for the class as well, so I could follow the same colour palette exactly.
  • I never ink blend cardstock for die cutting of images – I’ll be doing more in future, it’s really effective.
  • I love the look of using multiple colours on the butterflies and the hot pink embossing – and also the triangle layering panel and pop of embossing on the sides – so much fun, and something I haven’t tried before.
  • I just love everything about the floral card especially – you can’t help but smile when you see it, it’s so cheerful!
  • I’m reminded how Gina’s inks blend so beautifully for backgrounds, it’s my favourite ink brand for blending, hands down.
