I taught a cardmaking class at The Cubby Hole, Crewe on Saturday. We had a fabulous, fabulous time. After making up some background pieces, we used some simple but effective layouts to create cards.
Many of my samples were from my Play Date Cafe cards, but the above two cards are samples I made on the day to demonstrate techniques. We were a very full class requiring two tables, and I have to say that both tables were as 'busy' as each other but I only took a piccie of one lol
Look at that
mess industrious table!
Everyone made wonderful cards, but I think little Sue gets the prize for being the most prolific!
Sue Roddis applied the techniques to her journal pages and did some fabulous stuff.
I'm a very vertical/horizontal designer and just don't 'do' diagonals, but love it when I see other people use them so effectively.
Doesn't Nigel's Paper Artsy moth look fab
on this cluster of papers and flowers?
Ann fell in love with using the sewing machine on paper, and made some yummy frames just using stitching.
More cards tomorrow, but I wanted to remind you that this week's prize over at The Play Date Cafe is an amazing one this week. You get these THREE sets of stamps from Unity.
I have some Ippity stamps by Unity (Ippity are available through individuals, but Unity stamps are stocked in stores) which Suzanne used on her pink card here.
Everyone was impressed with the packaging, how beautifully the mounted rubber is cut, and the unusual images. As far as I know these aren't stocked in UK shops so I'd encourage everyone to have a go at winning! Head on over to The Play Date Cafe for details. And good luck :)
