Eclipse Cards – February Stampin’Up! Class

Getting my new blog site up and running is taking a bit longer than anticipated but it will happen soon! For now I will continue posting on my current site and this post is all about my February Classes. This month I am very excited to be teaching how to create an Eclipse Card. These cards became extremely popular at the end of last year after the solar eclipse happened in the northern hemisphere. I love how you can create a really personalised card using this technique. I know I am going to have a lot of fun creating my class samples for this class and sharing them with my class attendees.

Here is one of my class samples using the Stampin’Up! stamp set Wood Words.

Would you like to learn how to create this style of card?  Can you think of an occasion when one of these cards would be perfect to give? Then book into my February classes.

Daisy Delight Gerbera Class

I’ve had a change to my rosters at work and so have found I have a day to run an extra one off class this month.

July Technique Class – Glossy Cardstock Backgrounds

When the new Stampin’Up! 2017-2018 Annual catalogue came into my hot little hands my whoops of joy for new products was when I saw that glossy card stock had made it back into the catalogue. I was disappointed when Stampin’Up! retired glossy card a few years back as there are so may cool techniques you can use it for. Now it is returned,  we are going to focus in this months classes on how to create pretty backgrounds for your cards and scrapbook pages.

My first sample was inspired by a card in an article on the return of glossy card in our quarterly Stampin’Up! demonstrator magazine. ( One of the great perks of being a demonstrator!) I was intrigued as to how the card had been created so had a play and here are my first samples for the class.

As well as this technique we will cover two other techniques using glossy card and Stampin’Up! products.

Interested? Here are the dates –

Thursday July 20 at 7.30pm
Friday July 21 at 10am
Saturday July 22 at 1.30pm

Class fee $20 and you will make three cards. All materials provided. Please bring a paper trimmer.
