Peeks from Design Principles

Since Design Principles class starts on Thursday, I want to share some peeks of the principles we’ll be covering in the class. These projects are bonus ones to accompany the lessons, and I thought they might pique your interest.

I also wanted to show off the awesome Class Kit, which is still available for purchase. There are only a few left and they ship out in a couple days, so snatch one up while you can!

This is the badge that students can post with their creations inspired by the class. I thought this would be a good day to introduce it to you!

Now, here are some cards I’ve created to go along with the class. These demonstrate the principles we go over; there will be two strart-to-finish card videos with each lesson that show cards in a similar idea as these. (Same principle but different card designs!) This first card shows off Symmetrical Balance. You can learn more in depth about the principle of balance in lesson four. :)

I couldn’t resist using the new Interlocking Backdrops from Lawn Fawn (hot off the presses – it’s not available for sale yet but will be mid-August). I love it so much, and it’s perfect as a strip right down the center of the card. Some copics and sequins from the class kit are perfect to really make the hexagons pop. Just so you know, class members will have a chance to comment to win some Lawn Fawn stamp sets – this includes the new sets! Just one of the perks for class members. :)

By the way, Multi Matte Medium is the perfect adhesive for adhering sequins. It’s sticky enough, but it dries perfectly clear and matte  after everything sets. It’s my current favorite adhesive. Love.

This next card demonstrates the principle of Rhythm. You can learn more about this during lesson seven of the Design Principles class.

I love these wood veneer hearts from Studio Calico (misted with Boss Lady Mister Huey) in their cute stitched frames. Also, isn’t that gold washi tape AWESOME?! It comes in the class kit, and I’m in love with it.

So if you haven’t had the chance to register for your spot in Design Principles yet, now is your chance before class starts! I would love to have you there. :) If you have any questions about the class, leave them in the comments below and I will get back to you ASAP. Thank you so much for stopping by. Everything is coming together, and I can’t wait to share everything with you. <3


P.S. Thanks so much to Moxie Fab World for featuring my balloon card as one of their picks the other day. I <3 Moxie Fab world. Welcome to my new blog readers! I hope you’ll stick around and be inspired. :)

    I am a huge but new fan. In the last few weeks I have read back through last spring and watched all the videos (yes I am crazy) my problem is that now we are in the middle of a military cross country move. I will be in my house around August first, but there will be at least a week of hardcore work after that to get our house setup. Will there be an opportunity to do the class after the fact? It looks awesome but I know I won’t step foot in my craft room until mid month.

    • Hi Tiffany! Yes, the class will remain accesible forever after the class is over! You could always watch the videos and comment was the class goes on and then re-watch them again when you’re back in your new crafty space. I hope this helps answer your question; good luck with your move and I hope everything goes smoothly. Hugs!

    Hey Tiffany. This is my first online class so I am probably missing something. I am all registered and even ordered the kit. In your class description, you mention the class iste would be available in advance so we can start getting supplies together. I created my username and login when I registered on July 12 but I haven’t seen any link to the class site. There is only 2 days before the class and I want to make sure I have everything I need to get started. What am I missing?

    • Hey Beastybunny! I’ve been meaning to send out a mass e-mail to class participants, but I am still waiting on coupon codes from a couple of our sponsors. I’m going to go ahead and send it today with everything you need to know and then send the coupon codes later. :) But for now, you should be able to sign in and then go to the “classroom” tab up at the top and click on the “go to classroom” button. This will take you there! Hope that helps and let me know if you have any more questions. <3 Britta
