Quick xmas cards class - Sat 3rd Oct and Wednesday 7th Oct

This weeks class is all about Christmas cards. I have tried to make them a little simpler than usual, but will have lots of ideas on how you could detail them further if you wish. We will be making 4 cards and one gift card/money holder.

The first card uses the beautiful wheel so swirly and my current fave colour combo, taken with teal, silver and white.

And then another card using the stamp set snow swirled with lots of glitter and sparkle.

Then we have a little gift card holder great for those people you have no what gift to buy - teenagers perhaps!

This is a simple card with a little trick for using less ribbon as well as some sponging.

And lastly a simple card with a bit of an old feel to it.

The class is offered on Saturday 3rd October at 10.30am or in the school holidays on Wednesday 7th at 10am. Class cost is $20 and includes all materials, tools and light refreshments. Please email me if you would like to attend. All welcome.

It's orange!!!

I'm not a big fan of the colour orange, but I had a few sheets of the new tangerine tango so I thought I had better use it. I combined it with the stamp set Upsy Daisy and some riding hood red ribbon to make this card in about 15 mins. I usually spend soooo much longer on my cards. I think I may just like tangerine tango after all.

faux wood class on Saturday 19th at 10.30am and Wednesday 23rd at 10am

After last weeks mega class, where I was beginning to think I might have to make you all dinner, I have prepared a super easy class using the faux wood technique. This really is so easy and quick to make, although a little messy, but you can't have everything!

The first card is a wintery xmas shaker box card. Not really Australian, but I think I have watchd too much TV over the years, so I love this scene regardless.

The second card is a sympathy card to have on hand, although you are welcome to change the sentiment if you wish. It incorporates a little chalking but really is so quick and easy to make. It also uses some free, so saffron ribbon from this months special.

Then we have the good old wood fence depicted in this one. I saw this card on someones blog (no idea who) about a year ago and just loved the idea of it, so have been waiting to recreate it.

And lastly a very male card that won't take long at all to whip up. You could also make this into a husband, uncle, nephew or son card.
If you would like to attend this class please email me to book your spot. I have it offered on Saturday the 19th of September at 10.30am or Wednesday the 23rd at 10am. The class cost is $20 and includes all materials and tools, no need to bring a thing. All welcome.

Celebrating 50

It was my aunts 50th birthday last week, so this is the card I made for her.
It uses a new stamp set from the mini called Gallery. I am just lovin' this set, I can see a lot of uses for it. I have also used Baroque Motifs (yes again!) and baha breeze felt flowers and cardstock. The ink was creamy caramel and choc chip. The ribbon and chipboard numbers are non SU.
