May Class


My first class week is gone and I feel pretty good. I hold two classes that seem to be going regular gatherings on Tuesdays and Fridays. I am so thrilled and grateful for the support!

We made three beautiful projects. Father's Day Card, Nearly Any Occassion Card and a Bookmark.

The Father's Day card was the most detailed and time consuming and yet easily done. All my ladies, apart from one, are stamping newbies and they all have a lovely time putting this card together.
The set is actually retiring at the end of this month, which to me is really shame as the tools are perfect for masculine cards. I will hold onto this set for sure. 

I choose to make this card as an easel because it's just a great way to display a card. It lays flat so you can put in an envelope and send it off. I included all the things we used to create this beautiful card.



Product List


Nearly Any Occassion Card was this one. I found inspiration on pinterest. It was created by a crafter called Catcrazy. 
I tweaked it a little bit and add the butterflies which I thought was a nice touch. It gave the project a nice effect
as the butterflies wings are not glued to the card. Both stamps used (En Francais and Ups Daisy) are retired for years and can't be purchased through SU! but you can probably find them floating around on eBay.

And finally, we finished off the class with a small project - a bookmark. I used one of my favourite stamp sets, Beautiful You and random selection of colours. Everyone chooses their own favourite combination.
We used SU! markers to colour a piece of plastic that we press onto a wetted watercolour piece of paper. Then we stamped the stamp and sentiment, glued it to another piece of stock and ran it through a laminator. At the end we decorated the bookmark with a piece of ribbon. It is a lovely small project. I love my colour combination. I used this technique with this set already few weeks ago on a card. To make a little present with it was a nice change.

All these were accomplished in 2.5 hours! Piece of cake! The next set of classes runs in June. Interested? Click here for more details and come to one of my classes to try it yourself!
