This weekend past, I had the pleasure of teaching a group of friends in a private setting. It was wonderful. A few of the women hadn't done any kind of card making, so it meant a very quick learning curve, but I was sooooo proud of what they achieved.
Plus, I had a jolly good time! It is a lovely group, and I'm looking forward to going back again in September with some new ideas....
I decided as I didn't know many of the group to use the beautiful Stationers Desk range of papers to create our cards. I thought that this range has a lovely vintage look to it which most people love.
Here's a look at what we made.....
Card number 1 - a tall card with lots of folds to give extra space to write in
Card number 2 - simple on the outside......
Special on the inside...
I brought the die to make the pop up bits from Artfull Crafts at SENZ a couple of weekends ago. I just knew I'd make good use of it. I know you can cut your own pop up bits, but this die really does make it so easy.
Don't ya just love the chooks?! What a wonderful die that I brought a looooong time ago and finally used! Some people used the chooks, others ducks, pigs, or a mixture. The cards looked amazing!
Card 3 - A good ole box card
I LOVE these cards. They are sooooo easy to make, yet look incredibly special.
Card 4 - an easel card
This was probably the most simple of the cards, yet again, looks really special because of the way it's put together and stands up. Easel cards are just delightful.
Most people got through three cards and had everything done for the fourth card to just be put together.
It was a fabulous day and I thank my new friend Denise for asking me to come and teach!
