Class date will be Friday September 22 at 10am. Class fee $20. You will make seven flowers along with leaves and twirls all ready to make your own floral arrangement.
However for this post I wanted to share with you the banner I created for my son Alex’s wedding to his partner Sarah.
The wedding was a wonderful celebration all about them and their love for each other. Sarah and Alex’s theme was for a country rustic feel to the decor so the banner I created fitted in beautifully.
The ink colours I used were Soft Suede and Night of Navy. I added embellishments like rhinestones and paper roses. Below are some of the preparation photos I took while making the individual banner pennants.
A lot of masking needed to take place on each pennant but as I worked through the banner I found I was quicker at doing each one, so what I thought would take me a week ended up being only 3 days work. And that was not solid time at it I was on holidays after all! the Build a Banner kit includes all the pennants, stencils and one spritzer bottle. You add extra spritzers if required and your choice of reinkers. I also used the Hearts stencil from the Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks. It was a lot of fun to create plus knowing it was for a very special occasion made the effort all worth it!
If you haven’t seen these masks in the catalogue, they are page 205. You have a choice of Hearts and Stars or Dots and Stripes. So for the basket I cut it out using the Big Shot and then using the star mask/stencil I sponged Early Espresso ink onto the Kraft Cardstock, which is a heavier weight card available in the Annual catalogue page 192.
The basket trim was stamped with the Chalk Lines stamp set, as was the handle. Flower stamp is from Petal Potpourri and punched out using the matching Flower Medallion punch.
The thankyou tag is from the Tea Party stamp set.
I hope the Easter bunny came to visit – Happy Easter!
I’d like to share with you this cute journal cover we all created using the “Choose Happiness” 134195 stamp set.
Very nice and plus easy to create! Love those sort of projects! The washi tape spine adds a great look to the finished item.
You can choose to make a masculine version.
Or a birthday version.
Or a childrens version!

I found these photos when I was going through my pics and realised I had not shared this card in a box that i made back when I was running this particular class.
I love how colourful this card is – so bright and summery. Which is a lot to say seeing as we are in winter here in Melbourne!

This month I am trying out a new style of class – Card Monthly. Come along and create 4 cards focusing on a stamp set and associated accessories. Are you just starting out stamping and card making? This class will be a great way to learn the art of stamping. If there is enough interest I’d like to see if we can turn the class into a Stamp Club.
Class fee – $20 all materials included.
Here is a peek at what you can expect to create.

My regular technique class this month will focus on creating a Blocks card. Julie Higgins, one of my downline introduced me to this card when she taught us how to create it at our team get together a couple of months ago. Thanks Julie for letting me share your card.
Here is a cute project for Easter. One of my downline ( Thanks Simone! ) found these on FaceBook posted by Arlene Stokes, and shared it with her team.
They are so cute and very easy to create. This was my shoebox project at my Team Day last weekend.
Here is how you make one –
Punch both short ends with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch,
Score the strip at 3 1/2″ and 4 1/2″.
Using the Large Oval Punch centre it over the embossed oval and punch out the oval.
Here is another one of my Card in a box samples that you can recreate in my March technique classes this month. My last class is being held this Saturday March 29 at 1.30pm and there are still a couple of spare seats. If you would like to come along class is held in Mt. Waverley and cost is $20.
Email me – email@example.com if you would like to make a booking.
I love the designs in the Fresh Prints Paper Stacks in the Occasions catalogue!
This card in a box is a smaller version of my previous samples. This one will fold flat and fit into a standard C6 size envelope. In class you will have a choice to make this size or the larger size card in a box. You will also make a paper prototype of each size to keep in your technique file.
Here are the gift bags I will be teaching you how to make in my next class sessions. The bag on the left is the one I made for my down line members who attended Convention. The other gift bag is called a bag-in-a-box. It is great to fill with chocolates and give as a special gift to someone as a thankyou.
Class is $20 and will be held on Saturday June 25 at 1.30pm and Thursday June 30 at 7.30pm. Classes are held in my home in Mt. Waverley. Class size is limited to 8.
