Layout Two - Tiny Flowers

another die and a small punch helped to make this second layout.

I know what I wanted to do but I  couldn’t find the right background paper so I used white cardstock, a stencil and Antique Linen Distress Ink to make my own.

Punched Flowers

Yes I still love playing with punches. They are a great, affordable tool to have in your stash and they are always useful.

Fed up with the die cutting for a while I thought I’d give some of the punches a go and these two layouts were the results.

Layout One – Mum

It was really hard to photograph but the flowers are shaped and filled with black gemstones

Not sure if I am going to keep a big title. I am tempted to change it but time will tell.

Hope everyone had a great Easter.xxx

Three Cards

I love the card classes. Everyone beavers away to get their cards finished and it is great fun seeing everyone's faces as I show what they are going to make.

Here are the three from Wednesdays class.

The first is made using a Memory box Die

Have a great weekend. xx

A large and a small paint brush. (I have loads but you might have a favourite you want to bring.
Lunch (all cake welcome)

Stamps you might want to use. These will need to follow a theme i.e. flowers/ nautical/ family, etc. just in case you want to be creative.
