Quote book class on Saturday 20th @ 10.30am, Wednesday 24th @ 10am and Wednesday 3rd March at 10am

Todays class initially started out as something else entirely, but kinda of grew and took on another form, that of an inspirational quote book. Perfect for times when you are feeling down and need a little pick up, or, it would make a terrific gift for someone you know who needs a little lift.

It has lots of interesting tags and pockets, so it involves a bit of a journey while looking through it, but best of all it includes a few different, but easy techniques with ink you will love.
The front uses a marbled background technique.

Boy was this hard to photograph! But you can probably see that.

The tag just peeking out from the top uses a mosaic background and I will also include a blank tag for you to put your own favourite quote on.

This is a card that goes into one of the envelopes.
This could include either a quote or a message for your recipient.

Dates: Saturday 20th at 10.30am,Wednesday 24th Feb and Wed 3rd March at 10am
Cost: $25
RSVP: Please email me if you would like to come along to either ofthe classes.

All welcome!

Happy Valentines Day

I hope you are all having a wonderful day surrounded by those you love.
Here's a card I made celebrating the occasion using the I {heart} hearts set available in the mini. This is a great set to add to your collection because you not only get a versatile stamp set but are helping the people over Haiti with the donation Stampin' Up will give with the purchase of every set in February.

I love how many of the stamps co ordinate with a matching punch. It just makes it so much easier to get a great result.
Hope your day is spectacular.

Very pastel

Here is another card I made with my Sweet Nothings Simply Scrappin' kit. The stickers in this kit are so easy to use and can be positioned and repositioned over and over till you get it right. I just love that, as I never get it right first go. I also used one of the fluerrettes (crotched flower) from the mini.

Thanks for stopping by.

Organic Outlines

This is a really quick and simple card I made with two of latest acquistions, Organic Outlines and Vintage Labels, my free sale-a-bration stamps. I think I going through a bit of a simple phase at the moment, just loving clean and simple and 'white'.

Sweet Nothings class on Sat 6th Feb @ 10.30am and Wed 10th Feb @ 10am

I had lots of fun creating these cards, and could have kept going for days if time permitted, as I still have lots of the kit left, so you may see some more cards on the day of the class.
This class will be a little different from the usual, as you will be given half a simply scrappin kit (Valued at $18.50) from which you can choose which cards or scrapbook page you would like to make. You can make 5 - 6 cards or a scrapbook page and card on the day and take the remains of the kit home.
The card pictured above is a simple easel card, that I promise won't take long to make at all.

Then I have lots of pink and pretty cards (with lots of glitter, which does not show up in the photo) for you to choose from.

Or some a little bolder. I've included some optional stitching on some of these, so I will have the sewing machine out for you to use, or you can faux stitch if you prefer. This class will be very flexible, as I will have lots of different greetings for you to use. If you need some wedding cards, thank you's or birthday cards, this is the class to get your stock up.

I've even managed to get a male card from the kit, and some vintage inspired cards as well.

If scrapbooking is more your thing, you could make this page (designed by Stampin' Up) on the day instead. Please let me know if you would like to make this, so I don't cut your cardstock up, and bring along the relevant photos to use on the page.
I will be providing the additional supplies needed on the day, ie ribbons, brads, inks, flowers, gemstones and lots of glitter, but I ask that you please bring along a timmer and/or sharp knife on the day to help moves things along smoothly. You are also welcome to bring along a camera to take photos of any of the cards you don't have time to make.
All welcome - this would be a great class for the beginner as well as the advanced. Please email me to reserve your spot.

Dates: Sat 6th Feb and Wed 10th Feb
Times: 10.30am and 10am
Cost: $28
Bring: Trimmer and/or sharp knife, camera and photos (if you are scrapbooking)

Hope to see you soon.
