Welcome again to another class of card making, this week I thought seems it is getting closer to Easter I would make something in that theme. These classes are on Monday 31st March and Saturday 5th April at 10am at Scarpbook Fantasies. So come along and have some fun and learn something new. I know that the paper range is not in the easter theme but it gives you the general idea of what you could do. I have made two boxes which you could put little eggs /chocolates inside for the kids or big kids.... All this is made from a $5.00 kit, the kit is included in the cost of your class.

Scrapbook Fantasies Monthly Challenge

As usual two challenges for us this month (March) one is a page and the other a card. We the designer team for scrapbook fantasies are given a $5.00 kit and we have to create a page and a card with the kits. You can not add anything only the title for the page and inks, paint etc. So here are mine the page first....

I have cut and punched out flowers

And cut the owls out with a craft knife and 3D them

Now for the card

And with the scraps instead of throwing them out I try and make a page

I have fussy cut out flowers and used the Sizzix flowers 3d die to make flowers
which I have used for the card as well.

Just a few swaps

Hi everyone it is raining cats and dogs here today, very humid as well. But we really need the rain as our tanks are dry as a bone and the rain will fill them right to the top. This month I decided to enter into some swaps at Scrapbook and Crafters Community this is a closed group on facebook. I have done an altered paint brush which I have always wanted to give a go but I am liking it so much I do not want to give it to my swap partner. But I would not be so mean it is in the mail today. I made sure when I bought the paint brush it had a hole in the handle so it could be hung on the wall. My swap partner likes purple, cream and dusty pink so I used those colours for the colour scheme.

My second thing I entered was an ATC card swap for those who do not know what one of these are the cards measure 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and you decorate the front and on the back put who you are what the swap is etc. I keep one for myself and post the rest to the person who has organised the swap and I will get five back from other people. This is a lovely way to see what different styles everyone has. There was a theme to this swap you had to choose what is your favourite season mine is summer.

And of course lucky last. I have made 8 fairy tags each one different and the same things happens here to you keep one for yourself and post the rest to the person organizing the swap.

And here is the back of my tag.

Monday/Saturdays Classes

Hi everyone another Monday is upon us. They seem to come around very quickly as we get older. Classes will be on Monday 24th and Saturday 29th both starting at 10am at Scrapbook Fantasies. Bring your tools and tape and yourself to have a laugh, a coffee and to learn something new or different. We are making another two cards again. All my classes are made from a $5.00 pack and all I tend to add are inks etc.

Card No 1:

Card No 2:
This one is made from the scraps I always get a laugh from my girls when I say this, as it  normally  has the same amount of effort doing this one as  the first card.
