October 2017 cards

Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well. I have had a busy time since our last meeting mainly attending archery competitions with the family. I hope you don't mind me bragging their latest successes.

Here's Amy with the biggest cup to date, for winning Norfolk outdoor junior competition

Here's Amy and Daron with their fellow team mate Dan and their shield for winning best team for Norfolk.

Bragging over now to the real thing you want, here are this month's cards. I warn you I seem to be having a thing for blue and yellow at the moment.

Card 1 - Partial View  

Although I made this a girly card, you could do a masculine version and if I get time I will attempt to get  one done.

Card 2 -  It's all Blue and Yellow (sorry I couldn't think of a better name)

This card has lots of layers but I think it's worth it.

Card 3 - Very Blue Christmas 

This was a card I saw being demo'd at Thetford show recently and thought you would all like it too.

Punches for sale

I just wanted to let you know that I will be bringing with me a couple of boxes of Stampin Up bits including punches, ink pads and stamps that I will be selling on behalf of a friend. 
There is also a big shot for sale so if you fancy grabbing a bargain don't forget to bring your purses along to group.

August 2017 cards

Hi everyone hope you are all enjoying the "lovely" weather we have experienced recently ......well at least we have a good excuse to stay indoors and craft.

This month is a mixture of normal & Christmas cards so we hope you enjoy them.

Card 1 - Embossed Christmas

This card uses all those scraps of embossed card we have lying around but you could easily take this layout & use patterned paper instead

Card 2 - Faux Tile

You will need a scoring board to make the background for this card

Card 3 - Small stamp delight 

This card uses all those tiny stamps we have in our stash, Sylvia has done 2 slightly different designs for you all but this could easily be turned into another Christmas design.

Card 4 - Plain & simple

Oh how I'm never tired of this old fellow 

Hope you will all join us this weekend x

Christmas in July 2017

Merry Christmas everyone .....there I've said the dreaded "C" word.

Card 1 - Silent night

Card 2 - Christmas Pinwheel 

Card 3- Simple Snowflakes

Card 4- Christmas Squares

Hope to see you all this weekend

June 2017 cards

Hi ladies well here we are again and this month I had intended doing all fancy fold cards but unfortunately I could only get 2 designs to work to my satisfaction, therefore you have 2 fancy fold cards and 1 which is a totally different technique.

So let's start......l

Card 1 - the first fancy fold ......A star

This does take a 12"x12" sheet but I'm sure you could make a smaller version if you don't have the larger card stock.

Card 2 - Embossing delight

Card 3 - Double Diamond Fold

I love how this card magically comes together and I will apologise now as I'm guaranteed to  squeal with delight at class. I will attempt to make a male version of this card which I will bring to class with me.
