Class Projects

Hello everyone!

A late post for you today to show you tonight's class projects.

First up was a simple but very effective card incorporating flowers cut with the Floral Fusion die and one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. The leaves were cut with the Two Step Bird Punch. The sentiment is from the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess set. The colours used were Real Red, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White.

Secondly, we tried our hand at watercolouring with watercolour pencils and a blender pen. Well, wasn't that just awesome fun?

For this card we used the delightful Elebration stamp stamped with StazOn ink onto watercolour paper. The embossing on the background was done with the Lattice embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set. It was punched with the Window punch. Again, the little flower was cut with one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.

Colours used were Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink.

Lastly, the ladies chose to make one of the following little Easter gift bags/boxes:

The bags/boxes feature the gorgeous images from the Everybunny stamp set. Boy, are these cute! They were stamped onto watercolour paper with black StazOn ink and coloured with watercolour pencils and a blender pen.

Also used were the Two Tags die, Circle and Scallop Circle punches, Lattice embossing folder, the flower from Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Window punch, Decorative Label punch, Mini Vintage Tags, ribbon, Corner Rounder punch, silver brads and adhesive pearls. I think that's it!

The colours used were Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla.

Phew! That's a lot of information!

The lovely ladies from tonight's class really loved their creations, and that always makes me happy. Another great night.

What do you think of our projects?

Well, off to bed now. I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Enjoy!

Gosh, it's been a while!

Yes, it has. I have been flat out making invitations for my girls' upcoming birthdays. There was a lot of watercolouring involved with them, which took a long time but I loved every minute of it. I'll share those with you next month.

As soon as I finished the invitations I jumped straight back into trying to catch up on my scrapbooking, and here are the results.

This first page features a closeup of Mia when she lost her first tooth. Aaaaww...

The second page feature Mia's official netball team photos.

I'm just dashing out to take the girls to school so I won't write down a supplies list but if you's like to know any details, please just ask.

Hoping you all have a great day. Take care and enjoy the sunshine.
