The very inspirational Cricut Couple are giving away a Yudu!! If you have never visited their blog you really need to check it out!! They are full of inspiration and amazing project ideas. Hop on over to the CRICUT COUPLEblog and tell them I sent you over!!
I have taken a lot of classes with Jane Norrish and this was the very fist class I ever did with her and I was so impressed with myself for completing this project before I went home from class as I had never done such a complicated class. Jane made it all so simple and easy to follow and I couldn’t wait to do more classes with her after that. Her main design tip was to use a piercing template for the pages as this was the trick to make the project so neat and we used a book binding thread to secure the project together and even some fancy beading on the seam. We used foils to add some interest to the pages and the Gold Krylon pen to do some edges,special affects and details. Some of the image colouring was done with chalks to create a more subtle affect. I hope you enjoyed looking at one of my many treasures.
I made this card with my daughter as inspiration and I wanted to do something to do with Ballet and asked my friend Gloria Harrison if she had any dance style stamps that I could borrow and this is one of them. I originally stamped with the two dancers sitting together with black ink on white cardstock but it just didn’t look right, and as I am a bit of a pink fan I tried the pink cardstock and knew I was onto something when the image came to life! The bow is secured with a office notice board pin as Hat pins aren't in the budget yet. I used what I had in my lace and ribbon stashes that I secured as freebies along the way. When I first started crafting I asked everybody I knew to go through their sewing boxes and give me any old buttons,lace, ribbons etc. and it was amazing what turned up over the next few months. I have since invested in some large clear A4 sized plastic bags and sorted my ribbons and lace into colours and try to work with what I have. I hope you like this card as much as I do.
Challenges this card qualifies for:
Amanda Cordingley a Kaszazz Consultant in Brisbane,Australia demonstrated these two cards as a make and take at our monthly meeting of Papermates at Palm Beach on the Gold Coast.I really enjoyed making these, cards and it’s nice to try different products.
Here is a kit I made up from a Stamp Camp in Brisbane my girlfriend went to and saved for me to make up. A very cute card design and simple enough to repeat with what I have already. It’s always great when someone else does the hard work designing and you get lost in the joy of the doing.
I had a ball doing this class with Jane Norrish she is my amazing Stampin Up demonstrator who never ceases to amaze me with her knowledge and brilliant designs. I can’t show you the other two cards as I gave them away already which is so unlike me but I have my blog now and have a documented journey of both my cards and technological improvement on the computer. I’m enjoying both at the moment. In the last decade my business burnt to the ground and I’ve had my house and business flooded twice - all three life events not insured ,so this blog is my insurance of a preservation of all my artistic treasures.
This was such a treat filled with pretty ribbons and a stamp for me. How Jane made this.
Jane keeps the small baked beans tins and uses a can opener to open the bottom of the can and leaves the ring pull intact. After she decorates the tin, fills it with treasures and seals shut with glue as shown in the picture. Very clever idea! and Lucky me!
I just entered this fabulous Blog Candy at Craft International, see the direct link on my sidebar, I hope I win this fabulous stash for my collection ends 31st March,2011. It's nearly my birthday and wouldn't all that be a nice present for me.
