My ladies were excited to receive their special little gifts - personalised bone folders with their names engraved ! This time I went for blue tones , it's a great opportunity to use up those little DSP scraps ! I totally forgot to take a photo before class so these are for the absent ladies , I hope they are able to make it for classes next year .
|The ink was brayered on and the trees simply stamped , glitter added with the paint brush spatter technique and some silver ribbon finished it off nicely|
|It uses the Northern Lights technique and while a little unsure about it everyone's card was unique.|
|Cased from the very talented Julie Gearinger . This is one of my favourites !|
The next card for this group of lovelies was the one created with the Christmas Magic set that the previous group also created .
Sunday's class also created Tamra's card as well as two more cards . I wanted the ladies to try out the new Stitched Shapes framelits because S.U have made them available to us for the month of November . However , due to their popularity , they have sold out and you must oder them before Monday if you wish to have them as soon as they are back in stock . Otherwise , they are not going to be available until the next annual catalogue begins . Here is the card I created using them .

The new Occasions Catalogue begins on 4 th January but I was lucky enough to be able to put in a pre order and so I already have some lovely new product to play with as soon as I have my Christmas crafting sorted !
I took part in a vintage swap organised by Cheryl O'Bree . This is the card I created using Seasonal Bells to make a wedding card.

These are the two we created in class
We figured out that you do not need to use 12 x 12 paper for this card and i have a bit of a tutorial for you but urge you to go to Collette 's you tube because its a great tutorial ! Thanks so much for freely sharing Collette !
Start by cutting a piece of A4 cardstock at 4 inches with the short end to the top of the trimmer . it will measure 4 x 11 11/16
31/2 x 10
3 1/2 x 8
9 1/2 x 1 for belly band .
Fold your card base ( largest piece ) in half and burnish .
Adhere DSP to front of card and two pieces to inside of card.
Take your 10 x 31/2 piece and score at 2 1/2 , 5 and 7 1/2 inches in the landscape position.
Valley , mountain , valley fold this piece
Take your 8 x 3 1/2 piece and score at 1 3/4 down the centre in the portrait position . Then lay it in your trimmer in the landscape position and place a pencil mark at the 2 1/4 mark . Flip and do likewise on the other end.
Line up diagonally in your trimmer and score from pencil mark to pencil mark
Burnish the two long score lines and valley fold them .
Take your diagonal score lines and gently fold into peaks until you have a little house shape.
Line up to the centre placing strong adhesive on the v part on both sides , just a smidgen below the fold line of the card .
Then open out and lay the other piece and close the two side pieces so they meet in the centre, line up with the centre of the base and mark the top square piece and opposite bottom square pieces which is where your adhesive goes , unfold and hey presto you have your pop up mechanism !
Here is a birthday card we created using Always Artichoke and Early Espresso.
The first Christmas card uses Real Red and Garden Green with some of the yummy Real Red ribbon available from the Holiday Catalogue .

Today we had a quick class and created these two pages . I love all of the products we used and most were from the Holiday Catalogue except for the trees which are from our all time favourite stamp set , Lovely As A Tree . The colours used are Mint Macaron , Delightful Dijon Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler. Stamp sets Holly Berry Happiness , Seasonal Bells and Christmas Pines with matching dies and punches . We also used Santa Sleigh dies.
