Cards in a bag class

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter and Anzac Day holiday. Wasn't it great to get so many days off in a row!
But it's back to business around here today and I have the class sample for you. This class is an easy handbag and five cards to fill it with.

The cards all incorporate the mother of pearl technique which is shiny in real life. it looks a bit weird in the photograph, but trust me it is nice.
You will be able to make the handles of the bag in a colour of your choice, so if you are not into pink, I'll forgive you.

I'll also show you how easy it is to use the tulip embossing folder to make a square frame, and since you will be doing this five times you should definitely remember how easy it is to recreate at home.

I have included some watercoloring with watercolour crayons. So easy and quick with these little wonders.

I am offering this class on Saturday the 30th of April at 10.30am and Wednesday the 4th of May at 10am,
Class cost is $25 and is all inclusive. No need to bring anything. All welcome, but please RSVP so I can prepare the kit for you.

Botanical Gazette Cards

Just a quick one today, as I am off for a few days holidays. Yipee! But thought I would show you some cards I have been making with the new Botanical range in the mini.

You know,I have never been asked for a female retirement cards so I know I needed to make this suitable for a male. I guess us females never really retire.

And a simple card with lots of glitter and bees. Are you loving these new papers as much as I do?

Yet another book

I'm addicted to making books....I admit it. I think its fun to make something beautiful that is also functional.
That's my excuse anyway. This book is covered in one of the papers from the Lap of Luxury pack and I have also incorporated some retired papers that incorporated the lovely sky blue.

The chipboard shapes were all made with the Hearts and Brackets die and the scalloped edges were all done with my newest die Tasteful Trims. It was an expensive purchase but I am finding it oh, so useful, so I am so glad I made the splurge.
