Thought I'd best put my desk on first and then if you want to read the rest you can.
After the class on Sat (see below) I'd put everything away- tidied up and was ready to go creating again. Well had my GD on Mon afternoon and she wanted to make a card for Phoebe ( her sis) as she has chicken pox. Ella saw the sample I'd made for class and declared that was what she wanted to make. She did it all her self- stamped,distressed stickled and did it so well ( she is not 5 until Sept) but this was how my craft space looked afterwards :-)
the little boxes have all the elements left from cards from class
She wanted to write inside the card I love you Phoebe - which you can see I've written out for her to copy.
I think everyone must know about WOYWW - no well pop over to the lovely Julia's blog and join in the fun.
I think a lot of you who read my blog knew I was taking my first cardmaking class last Saturday. It was my first time teaching adults how to make cards. I kept thinking - who am I to think I know enough, am creative enough to do this and I'd not taught for 6 years ( that was children) . Well it went well and everyone loved what they made ( although I had case some ideas ). Unfortunately when the date was chosen no one knew the Olympic Torch would be going through our town. Result was only four ladies - but maybe that was enough for first time. However I had a great time and realy enjoyed it. Have been asked to do another one in Sept/Oct. Have the bug now though and would like to do something before then so need to get my thinking cap on.
As you have probably noticed 'I've come out' yes I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Actually joined in March but have been taking it slowly.
Can anyone tell me how to keep my previous post at the top of my blog until end of July?
Have some photos of what we made at class.
Please note that I cased the card with the awning from Jules of Julies Japes . I had seen it in various places but liked the colourway Jules had used. Also used the same colours as Jules used for the gift box, although my box design is slightly different. Thanks Jules.
The theme was obviously Cupcakes - everyone had a cupcake ' bath bomb' to put in the gift box.
