Back again!

Well over the past few weeks I have been busy making ards for my 2010 Christmas in July workshop. I decided to do this class using a half pack of the "I Wish" Simply Scrappin' kit for each person. Out of this half kit, I managed to create 20 cards and 6 tags and the only extra bits and pieces needed were about 6-7 sheets of A4 and an extra sheet of 12x12 card was need to create the box and then some ribbons, brads and punches.

There they are  ...  all of them including a box which will hold about 5 cards and 5 envelopes. Now here are some closer shots.

I was very pleased with all the cards as were the ladies who attended.

Card used was Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive and Whisper White. Ribbon was Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Old Olive and some Linen Thread.

Now it's six months till Christmas and at the moment I'm definitely over Christmas Cards :)


Hello Everyone

Well my Christmas in July classes are now finished and life is back to normal for a little while. This week our Friend Gary celebrated a birthday. Here is a card that I whipped up (thanis to my SU friend Jenny, stamping me up a couple of quick images)

Paper is Kaisercraft and card is Really Rust and Night of Navy. Happy Birthday is a Stamp It image and the boat and compass are from Stampin Up!

Now check back again soon as I am going to upload some photos of the cards from my class!

Here are two birthday cards that I made recently whilst away on a retreat. They are for DH Greg and step grandson Jack, both share the same birthday.

This card I made for Greg. It's a mish mash of all different products SU Card, Basic Grey Card, MM Buttons, a Cuttlebug Folder which is on the River Rock card but you can't really see it, SU Punches and I'm not sure where the ribbon came from.

This is Jack's card. The button is SU as is the More Mustard and Chocolate Chip card but I'm sorry I have no idea where the rest is from .... and I call myself a stamper :)
