I altered!!

I have been taking another class over at Feeling Scrappy!

If you haven't checked out their site yet, you MUST! I lalalaLOVE Feeling Scrappy classes. This class is called Year of Cheer. It was a prize I won a couple of months ago in their Sketchapalooza 2 Class. At the end of the class, I will hopefully have enough cards of cheer to give thru the year!
This class is perfect for those of us who are running around last minute to grab a card. I love receiving homemade cards, so why wouldn't I want to GIVE them!

The instructor for this class is the brilliantly talented Stacey. Check out her
blog here! I have always been a fan of Stacey's work so I am so excited for what is in store for us.

One of the first things we had to do in the class was to make a place to keep the cards we are making. We learned how to alter a box to keep them in. This was the first time - other than my Mess to Success binder - I have altered! Very exciting in my world!!

Here is how my card box turned out.

Next we had to make the dividers for the box. I picked a few categories and made them to match the box. I will add more as needed.

Now that the box is ready, its time to fill it!

Stacey gave us our first sketch that we were to follow. As always with a sketch, you can fit it to your need. I made 4 thank you cards.

I can't wait to see what else is in store for us! Stay tuned!
