Coming up next Tuesday I am holding a class, the five cards we are making use lots of punches. I was never that keen on punches, but they are growing on me. Not the cutsie little teddy bears and hearts type of punches, but the ovals and scalloped circles things like that. You can use them in lots of different ways. Here are the cards we will be making. I have to admit most of the ideas on these cards have been cased from other people. Thank you all for your inspiration.

I sometimes wonder why I am doing this as I haven't told anyone I have a blog, so I presume no one has actually been to look at it. I'm a bit shy about telling people where to look incase they think it is silly :( Oh well, I will keep on talking to myself and one day maybe I will share it with some others!

Our Stamp a Stack night a couple of weeks ago went well. Here are the cards we made. The Star card was made in five different colours and it looked really nice. I also had a class for some people involved with the community outreach group last Sunday and we made a very similar card there too, with a matching box.

In July we made this really cute shopping bag (I found the instructions on SCS web site, but had to adjust the size). Then we made five matching cards to go inside it. This would make a great gift for someone. We used Stampin' Up!® Fall Flowers double sided designer paper for the bag and on some of the cards. The stamp set we used is the level 2 hostess incentive set 'In the Spotlight'. Hope you like them, everyone who did the class was very impressed with what they made.

I Got A Cuttlebug Machine

I recently got a Cuttlebug machine, and am loving the embossed effect, I particularly love this swirl background featured in the card above. I made this card for my daughter and her boyfriend.

June Stamp a Stack

In June we made these gorgeous cards using Stampin' Up!® sets Wild About You and Garden Whimsy. It was rather hectic making all those cards in a couple of hours but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves

Long Time No Post! 10th August 2008

Would you believe I forgot my password to get into my blog and couldn't post anything. So then I gave up trying, but today I thought I would have another go and here I am!! It's been a while I've had a few technique classes since I last posted so I will try and download some of the photos of what we made. The photo above is from the May, faux woodgrain, faux tearing and faux stitching class. Hope you like them.
