August 2016 cards

Hi everyone I do hope you are enjoying all this lovely weather we have been having. I bet if you are anything like me you end up dragging all your crafting kit outside,  as it's too nice to stay indoors but it's a shame not to be doing something whilst enjoying the sunshine.

Well here goes with this month's selection. Don't forget it's Hethersett class this Sunday & Aylsham Saturday class is a week later.

Card 1 - Summer Flowers


Card 2 - all of flutter

If we manage to get another card sorted I will add it on here. Hope to see you all at the weekend.

July 2016 cards

Well Happy Christmas to you all.

 This can only mean one thing it's Christmas in July time so all our cards this month will be of the festive kind. So get your tinsel and baubles dusted off and let the festivities begin......

Card 1 - Vellum Poinsettia 

This one uses the "Sylvia" landscape card fold


Version 2 
Shows you don't have to use traditional colours 

Card 2 - Elegant Baubles 

This I admit to copying from a magazine


Card 3 - Faux Baubles

Another card I found in a magazine 

Hope you like the cards and hope to see lots of you this weekend x

June 2016 Cards

Hi everyone firstly can I say a big thank you to all the best wishes I received whilst my husband was really poorly, you will be glad to hear he is slowly on the mend again and hopefully will be getting the all clear from his cancer very soon.

I also had some great news in the form of promotion at work, I am now deputy sister of my unit, which will be challenging given our unit is being extended next month and we are relocating to a temporary location but I'm looking forward to meeting these challenges head on.

So now to the important stuff this month's cards......

Card 1 - now that's a surprise 

This is one we didn't get done a couple of months ago


Card 2- all about the zen

At the begin of the year I asked everyone for suggestions to what techniques they would like covering and Jeanette at Hethersett suggested Zentangling. Well it's taken me this long to get up the nerve to give it a go and now I cannot stop. I'm not brave enough to draw my own outlines so I've used stamps & stencils instead. The stamps do need to be outline only, which it would appear I have very few of, so I improvised and used the negatives of punches to give the outline I needed and this is what I came up with.
Here are some I've yet to mount on cards.

I forgot to add a light grey marker pen to the list, I actually used SUs smokey slate.

The other cards are in Sylvia's email from last month but I cannot get them on here as they are a word attachment.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the weekend.

April 2016 cards

Well here we are again. Hope you all had a lovely Easter & that you didn't eat too many Easter eggs 😊.

This month's card all have an acetate theme to them so I hope you like them & that they involve techniques we have not covered before.


Card 1 - now that's a surprise

I know that is a cryptic title but when you see the card initially it looks pretty boring until you pull the ribbon & then the surprise is revelled.

The boring view

The surprise


Card 2 - Smacking Acetate

This card does use acetate but you won't find it on the card exactly.


Extra supplies needed
Corner punch


Card 3 - Smacking Acetate take 2

This is a variation of the above technique - I was really pleased how this card turned out & I have to say it's my favourite.

Extra March cards

I thought it might be nice to see the cards & boxes we made today. 

Here is what I made whilst the ladies were hard at work

Apologies for the awful stamping on this box, I did it too quickly & forgot to clean the edges of my stamps

And here is what everyone else did

Thanks again for everyone who attended & I hope you liked what you made.
