my blog 20.03.16

Thought it was time that I kept my blog a bit more up-to-date. I love being busy with my card classes and really enjoy the creations that come from the lovely ladies that come along. It never fails to amaze me how a number of people can be given exactly the same packs and come up with so many different creations - it is wonderful.
My days generally start around 4am so this is short as I need some sleep and still have a few things to do before going to bed.
I will try and keep this blog a little more up to date in the weeks to come. 
blessings to you and thank you for reading /  following my blog.

Easter house

 Easter house from Cre8ive Cuts. so easy to do and holds lots of eggs.
spent a lovely time making it with a friend.

NZ Dies - Tui - Kiwi cards

 love NZ cards. the Kiwi card is made with the kiwi and fern dies from Scrapn Diez,
The Tui cards are made with the Tui die from the NZ Die collection, and the Kia Ora from the NZ stamp colection.  The ferns on the Tui card are stamped with the fern from the CTMH New Zealand stamp. All are excellent to use.
We have embossed the blue background card with the NZ embossing folders using the Koro folder on some and the New Zealand maps on another.
These make lovely cards for sending overseas.

Photo card

A photo box card we made in class. We used stamped, coloured images for our first attempts - now that they know how it all goes together it is a good way of giving a photo and card in one. I have done one with one of my great-grandsons in it and I just love it. will do this again soon.

Lattice card from Feb 2016

inside of card

We did this card in 2016 card class - thanks to Gay in ChCh for the inspiration. The lovely lattice pattern is cut with a die, though can be done by hand. the inside of the card has a pocket to place a gift card, voucher or money (notes). Be aware not to put money in it if you are going to post it. I am so proud of the ladies who come to my class's, they make amazing cards and the variation on the basic theme is great. 

two cute baby cards

Two cute baby cards made in 2015 card class. these cards are made using 'cup cake wrappers'.

Triple heart card + tree card

cards made in September 2015 - the trees card is using Stampin Up stamp and punch - very easy to use - the triple heart card was done in our 'Thursday Class' and these are from two of the ladies and the cards are just waiting for the sentiments to be added. make great valentine cards, birthday cards and wedding cards. lovely to make and everyone turned out different with the particular occasion they had in mind.

July 2015 black and white card

hi, sometime since I have been on my blog so thought it was time to do a bit of a catch up. This card we did in our July 2015 card-class, it is done in black and white, however can be done with coloured flowers also. Some lovely cards were done by the ladies.
