August Technique Class – Vintage Leaves Embossed

Last night was my technique class and I wanted to share my favourite Technique card with you.  This card was a labour of love if ever there was one!! I’d seen a card by Margaret Raeburn on Pinterest that I really liked and I wanted to recreate a similar version for my Technique Class with an Autumnal feel.  Writing this blog post was the first time I actually searched for Margaret’s… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Embossing Folder Techniques

My technique class was last night and I decided this month to work with embossing folders. When I started gathering ideas for this class, it became obvious that I could really do quite a few classes on this – the possibilities are endless but here are just three featuring some of our latest products. Firstly, I found a technique on UK demo Amanda Fowler’s page here that she called double… Read More »

Stampin’ Up – Bokeh Technique

This week was my week of classes here at my craft room.  Here are a couple of cards that we did on Technique Tuesday.  I have seen lots of these style of cards across the internet recently and was really keen to give it a try.  I’ve drawn inspiration from a whole range of ideas and colour combinations I’ve seen to come with something of my own.  It really is… Read More »

Stampin’ Up – Private Card Class

I had a private card class last night for my lovely hostess, Nora.  She had requested we make a medley of cards that she could recreate with her children as she likes to make Thank you’s and Birthday cards with them.  So I was happy to oblige! The first one I shared  on my Facebook page last night, it uses Little Buddy Birthday – which is my favourite set to… Read More »

Happy New Year one and all!

2015 has arrived! Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? I must admit, I don’t make any ‘formal’ resolutions as I rarely even remember what they were come March! I am going to try and look after myself a little bit more, drink a bit more water, exercise a little but no ridiculous resolutions that I know I wont keep up with. I’m also going to try and keep up with… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Private Classes

It’s been a week since I wrote a post – sorry about that!  I don’t know about you, but though I love Christmas and have been making Christmas cards since August, it still sneaks up on me and I suddenly realise I still haven’t bought all my Christmas presents and I’m running out of time and ideas, aaaaagggghhhh!! Is anyone else like me or are you all super-organised? Today, I had… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Private Classes

I hold regular monthly classes in my craft room, but I also hold private classes here too for a minimum of four people.  Here is my room just before  a recent private class began.   This was my last class with this group of ladies before Christmas, so I had a couple of little gifts for them that you can see on the table.   One of the cards we… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Cheerful Christmas Case

I love looking at other people’s designs for ideas and inspiration and I saw this lovely card on Debbie Henderson’s blog (an SU demo from the US) a little while ago, which I thought would showcase a lovely technique for my Technique Tuesday class.  You can see Debbie’s card here – she even has instructions on how to create the card. I decided to change it up a little bit,… Read More »

Holiday Home Tealight Lantern complete with Instructions

I’ve had a great reaction to my tealight lantern that I posted recently. Many of you have requested the instructions so here goes… I was first inspired by a tealight lantern I saw by a Dutch SU demo Aida.  You can see her version on  her facebook page .  I knew I wanted to use the Holiday home bundle and unfortunately Aida’s measurements didn’t suit my design so I had to… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Christmas Crafternoon!

So Saturday was the day of my Christmas Crafternoon!  I don’t do these events very often, but I really enjoy them. Having four hours together gives me the opportunity to showcase projects we wouldn’t normally have time for in a normal weekday class.  So what did we get up to this time, well you may remember my sneak peak photos from a couple of weeks ago, but if not here… Read More »

Christmas Card Ideas using the Stair Step Card for Technique Class

As promised, I am back with a look at the cards we made in my recent Technique class.  This month, one of the cards we made was a Stair Step card.  I saw an example of this style of card on a Youtube video by Amy Celona and wanted to make my own version.  It is not as complicated as it looks and is perfect for the Holiday Home stamp set.  The… Read More »

Christmas Cardmaking Classes – The Week Begins…

I’m kicking off a week of Cardmaking classes with my Mum and Me class this morning at 9.30am – and I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off with a group of Mums and their little ones! We will spend the morning making 4 cards – similar to my Fast and Fabulous class but just with a little extra time to allow for a few cuddles, feeds… Read More »

Need any more Christmas card ideas??

Every month, I hold two regular classes – my Fast and Fabulous class where we make four cards that are not too labour intensive and my Technique class where we make two or three cards that focus on a particular technique or that may just take a bit more time. This month, in our Technique class, we focussed on the Emboss Resist technique.  This is where you add colour over an embossed… Read More »

Merry Christmas from Sassy Salutations

I’m sharing another card today from my recent Fast and Fabulous class.  I was inspired by a card by Megan Daves who used Sassy Salutations in a similar way. I used the little arrow stamp from What’s Up in between the words – it kind of reminded me of pine needles – though must admit, I’d never looked at it like that before! So all in all it’s a quick… Read More »

Stampin Up – More Christmas Card Inspiration with Bright and Beautiful

I am going to share another card from my Fast and Fabulous class this week.  As I mention a lot, White Christmas has to be my favourite stamp set from this year’s Seasonal Catalogue but Bright and Beautiful is fast catching up.  I’ve also become more and more fond of Night and Navy.  I must admit, I’ve only used it as an accent colour before, rather than basing my whole card around… Read More »
