Lots of vellum class and free catalogue - Wednesday 2 April

Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely Easter and some time to do a little scrapbooking or cardmaking.
In Wednesdays class this week, we will be using lots of vellum cardstock to complete three cards. This is a material not used nearly enough as the results you can achieve are amazing.
The first card has vellum flowers and a vellum base. It looks very elegant, and depending on the sentiment used can be suitable for lots of occasions - wedding, enegagement, birthdays and sympathy.
The second card uses vellum as a mat, (a terrific use for this is in scrapbooking). The card is inspired by one I saw on Rachel Capps blog and just loved the use of the blossom.
The third card we will complete has colored, embossed flowers, a technique that is simple and quick and always looks teriffic.
All the cards above are suitable for beginners as well as those more advanced, so don't be afraid to give it a go.
Stampin' Up has a brand new beautiful catalogue out, full of exciting samples and gorgeous products and I've a free one (RRP $12.95) for those that attend the class this week. You'll love it!
Hope to see you Wednesday.
P.S. You will need a trimmer and scoring blade (if you have one) for this class.

Waterfall Card Class - March 19th - 10am

Waterfall cards (or sometimes called flipper cards) have been around for a while, but are great fun to make and play with. So I thought it would be nice to make one next week using the beautiful Enchante papers from Stampin Up which are only available to the end of March. It was hard to photograph this card, but you pull the tab at the end and the pages flip over, really cool! This make a great card for someone special or you can stick it on a scrapbook page and fill with photos to make an interactive element on a page. It's surprisingly easy so you will have no trouble making lots more of these at home. Hope you can make it.

This is a wedding card I managed to finish on the weekend. It's a simple card using shimmer papers to give it some extra punch.
