July meeting

Well what an eventful weekend that was, it really made me appreciate it takes 2 to run the groups smoothly regardless of how many attendees we have.

You will all be pleased to know that Sylvia has made a full recovery & she promises that she will be fighting fit for the August meeting baring any more accidents with tables or dodgy tummies.

Well here are the pictures of the cards we all made & in a later post I will attempt to upload the cards for next months meetings.

This trifold mouse card was made at both groups. The stamps are by Dimension Fourth & I think I got the original idea from a card I saw on the stand at the Thetford show, which is on again on Sunday 23rd August. Please excuse the crease on my back page border, however much I try to get rid of it, it seems to want to stay put.

This wallet card was original taught to me by my friend & Stampin up upliner Lisa, who kindly agreed to let me teach it to the groups. This is not my original card as mine was accidentally taken home by one of our members so this was one I made very quickly hence its not quite finished. We used an A4 sheet of brown card which we halved lengthwise. After rounding off all the corners we applied versamark ink to the front only & then sprinkled on clear embossing powder. Prior to heating we made patterns using an embossing tool & then heat set the embossing powder. The effect is really cool & it looks as though you have used expensive leather effect card. Inside the wallet we created pockets using the leftover brown card. This is a great card for all those really hard to please men in our life's.

This last card we made at Aylsham only but we will be making it at Bawburgh next month. This is Sylvia's creation & she has used eyelets as an effective decoration as well as serving a purpose by holding the front & back of the card together.

The third card we made at Bawburgh was designed by Sandra using Stampin up products. When I obtain a picture of her card or I complete my own (which hopefully will be soon as Aylsham will be doing this card in August) I will upload an image for you all.
Dates for next meetings are 8th & 9th August.

First Entry

Well here goes, this is venturing into the unknown here. The plan is to show on this blog the creations we are planning to make each month so our members have a better understanding of what cards we are planning to make so they bring the appropriate supplies.
After the monthly meeting I will endeavor to upload the instructions for each card so if you cannot make the meeting you can make the cards at home.
Our next meetings are on 11/12th July. The cards for this month will be uploaded after the meeting as I should have my own computer back by then & Sylvia & I will arrange for next months cards to be posted soon
