Hello there – yes this is me being a tad more organised and getting my post out on time! there is lots to tell you so I will crack right on…
Sale – a – Bration is rolling on – I cannot believe that we are already half way through this but here are a couple more ideas that will hopefully inspire you and show you what you could be making with your FREEBIE stamps and paper set….I was inspired for this card by a picture frame design by Jenny Moors. I love her work and often buy her tutorials for my groups. In this design, Jenny had made it a framed picture so I changed the colour scheme but still did the central flower using the heart punch. I love how this came out and am peaked with the colours – they have come out bright and vibrant – I will be really sorry to lose these papers and am stock piling them as much as possible!
This one is inspired by a card I saw over on Jenni Pauli’s blog. Again I changed the colours and the layout very slightly but I am always inspired by Jenni and cannot help but CASE her work – I think I would do it in my sleep! This card uses one of the other stamp sets – Elementary Elegance – that are FREE when you spend £45 on anything from either the main catalogue or the current mini or a combination of the two! So many choices….
So what did the girls do this week? Well….they excelled themselves again! I am always amazed by how well they rise to the weekly homework. The homework was to create a card from the sketch of one of the other girls in the group…. here’s how they did….
This week was our final week before we take a short break. Our tuesday classes run for six weeks then I get a week off to re group and think up some more things for the girls to do. We usually go out with a bang…one final project which brings all our work together – this is what we made (for those of you who take it, yes this is the screen that was featured in last months Craft Stamper magazine…..) It is a totally delightful project and I think everyone enjoyed making it!
Do you think you might have enjoyed making this project? We had a great time with it – ours is not perfect but it was much easier to make than we imagined – all credit goes to Linda Elbourne – the designer for Craft Stamper magazine, for such wonderfully simple instructions. I totally enjoyed teaching this and love my own finished project too.
If you like the look of the projects we make you could join us for our next project session…we have two coming up! The first is our Stamp a Stack! – It is on 17th March at Table Table, Phoenix Park, Linwood. The cost is £15 and we will be making around 12 cards with a Spring/Easter theme.
