September’s Cards

 Well hi everyone hope you all have had a great summer. I had a BRILLIANT time at the Olympics & was so lucky to see Mo Farah win his 2nd Gold Medal. I have never been so proud whilst singing the National Anthem before. It’s a memory that will live with me forever.
I thought this month we would try 3 different things.
  • The first card teaches you yet another way to make a Christmas Tree out of a shape we use so often (A gold star to those of you that can guess the shape)
  • The second card uses Flower Soft, a product that has been around for a while, but I for one have not got round to trying before.
  • Then the third card uses a new technique which I hope you will enjoy having a go at.
So here goes with this months cards
Card 1 – Another Christmas Tree
Card 2 – Flower Soft Card
Version A
Version B

Card 3 – Magic Snowflake

August’s Cards

Hi everyone I’m sorry I will not be with you again this month as hopefully by the time you read this I will be in London awaiting my debut in London’s Olympic stadium admittedly it will be as one of the 80,000 spectators rather than as a competitor………. but at least I can say I was there.
So please look out for me at the 4 x 100m men's relay final on Saturday & at the closing event on Sunday, I’ll be the mad lady with the banner a saying “Hello Nanny” as we promised my Mum that's what we will do for her (just hope security do not confiscate it) whilst shouting/ waving madly at the camera just for Sylvia (this is an insider joke that Sylvia herself can explain to you).
Anyway enough about why I will be absent from the group & more about the cards we have planned for you so here goes……..

Card 1 – Shabby Chic designed by Jeanette
please note this card is for HETHERSETT ONLY
Card 2 – Say it with flowers or according to Sylvia’s email patterned papers &  painted flowers
(I liked my title better but don’t tell Sylvia that)
This uses lots of coordinating papers & a different layout to what we have used before.
Card 3 – Xmas Parcel card

Card 4 – Xmas Ribbons & Papers

Oh well better late than never, so here goes

Card 1 - Love Tag

As Valentines is before we meet next month I thought I'd do one for all you romantics but also make it so it could be given at some other time too.

Another of my New Year Resolutions was try to make at least card that was suitable for the men in our lifes so here is this months offering (Lets see how long before I break this resolution too)

With this card I'm going to show you an easy way to colour your vellum any colour you like, although the picture does not show it very well the vellum is actually a pale blue colour.

Card 4 - Not a bit of Pink in Sight
