Saturday's Craft Class

We had lots of fun on Saturday at my house - although I forgot to take any photos again until right near the end when the others had left! So here's my sister and her niece making the final touches to their projects.

I'm not sure if this photo sells this project in any better light but when my sister arrived and saw the finished layout we were making she said 'oh this looks much prettier in real life!'. I can't explain to you how pretty these papers are, and I only recently realised that they almost perfectly match my handbag with this design! I'll have to post a photo of that soon.

Here's a close up of the Vintage Springtime Collection papers and jumbo buttons from the mini catalogue - these are all available through me as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator don't forget. I might even be launching a 'class at home' with these soon for both cardmakers and scrapbookers!

Here's one made by my niece with a different selection of the papers used for hers. We had fun crumpling up the circles and flatterning them out again - we used a whole range of the Stampin' Up! circle punches and buttons.

In the other session we made cards using these fun 'Fox and Friends' animal stamps (From £13.95) - so cute! And of course the Big Shot embossing and die-cutting plates. The trailers are made using the 'Curly Label Extra Large' punches and then running the shape through the Big Shot machine with the spotted embossing place. We used Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Early Expresso cardstock and inks. This card wasn't actually one we used in the class (see Lisa Young as original designer of this project) but one I made when everyone had left - as I wanted to craft a little for myself!

This was one from the class, stamping the animal and then the greeting was punched out with the oval and scalloped oval punches.

This is another of the original projects - isn't it so cute? We've used the natural twine to give the effect it is being pulled along, with wheels punched using the circle punches too. A very cool project and one that everyone was very happy to take home with them! Come along and join us next time... I am due to be teaching some classes at Rainham Library soon!
