Oh What Fun!


Happy Sunday :) Did you all have a good World Card Making Day? I sure had fun yesterday with Caz & all the ladies at The Paperlane. Thank you for everyone who popped by the demo in the morning and who came to the class, it really makes me happy to see people enjoying the hobby of stamping & card making .

I thought I'd share a couple of the projects we made in the class yesterday for my non local readers...

I had a theme yesterday of Christmas Wreaths & Poinsettias to help us embrace the fact that Christmas is not far away. This first card seen above is a Christmas variation of this card HERE, it's a little fussy to mass produce, due to all the little fussy cut flowers, but I find fussy cutting quite enjoyable!

The next card we made was inspired by Aimes' card HERE, as soon as I saw it I knew I had to look through my supplies to see how I could recreate the wreath without the die she had used. It was quite easy with a scalloped circle & small circle die...

The quickness and simplicity of this card made it my favourite and one that I will definitely be mass producing for my Christmas cards this year! 

Once I had die cut my wreath I used one of the leaf stamps from Natures Treasures 1 to add the stamped leaf detail and to continue the theme of Poinsettias I used the solid flower from Flower Power #1. A few red rhinestones and sentiment from Label Love: Christmas finished it off perfectly.

Below is a photo I took during the class yesterday, we had a lot of creative fun & I'm looking forward to doing it all again later this month on Saturday 19th October (The date has changed since the date announced yesterday at The Paperlane,  Caz got a little mixed up with prior engagements!)

That's all from me today, I will be back tomorrow with a couple more cards to share which I made during the class & demo yesterday. Thanks for stopping by :)
