Beau Chateau Product Suite & Class

One of the things I especially love in this year's cattie, are all the wonderful product suites where everything coordinates so beautifully.  If you like the vintage look then you will love the Beau Chateau products.  Here are some of the products from this collection that I really love.

Beau Chateau Designer Paper

Beau Chateau Side Notes

This really doesn't do these justice as you will see when you see the projects we will make in class.  These cards are unique in size and measure 6 x 3" when closed.  There are also some different folds and layouts that you may not have tried.  Here are the cards which will be finished inside and out!

Card 1 Outside

Card 1 Inside

This is Card #1 and features the new pleated Satin Ribbon from the Occasions Mini, some blending with markers and of course stamping using the Elements of Style stamp set.

  Card 2 Outside

Card #2 Is an easel card and I love how the paper coordinates so well with the Side Notes.

This card features Roosters, and several of our decorative border punches.
