Simple but Chic!

So I was out last night meeting with other SU! demos doing a shoebox swap. The aim of the night is to make 10 demo cards so you can use them in your card-making classes. In return you have to create a demo card that can be put together within 5mins or less - duplicate 10 times and bring to the event for 10 demos to create your card. Anyway... this is my simple but chic card I made.

I love, love, love how simple it is to create this bunched ribbon look.... it's sooo easy... and you don't even need to use a needle & thread. Did I tell you I was terrible in home ec when I was at school. I barely sew a button on a shirt... I'd rather throw away the shirt and buy a new one ;P

This is another card I made the other night.... again.. simple...good for a beginner papercrafter.

Anyway...I've gotta hit the craft table... I finally published my lunch-time classes at now I have to create more samples for my classes.

More cards I've been working on...

As promised... here is some more cards I've made over the last few weekends... These 2 are similar to ones I've done on my blog..just slightly 'tweaked'. I decided on the weekend that some of my favourite creations I've always managed to give them away as b-day cards to friends & family. So my samples in the last 6mths have not changed. So.. I CASED my own cards and improved them slightly ;} Whatta think?

On this card I added the new texture plate on the main cardstock (Marina mist) plus I used my new spritzer tool ...I love it!!!!

This one is similar to the card I gave my mum back in June... slightly different..

Do you like my new punch? It's not really a new one...just one that's been 'edited' I like how it works/mattes with the slot punch..

Gotta go now... I'm still tired from last nights late night... ciao!


Slight change in my blog...

If your reading this from google reader you won't see the change... but if your checking out my blog...don't worry... I'm playing with templates/backgrounds. I went on my blog a few times tonight and noticed the background was all weird... anyway.. seems I couldn't sleep tonight I decided to check out why my blog was all messy-looking. Anyway... it turns out my 'free' blog template provider Leelou has moved all of her designs to another location. So....I decided to snoop around and try and find a better blog template....I really want a template with my fav colour red! ;) For now this one will do... I wish I could design my own template... I wish I could play all day in adobe ;) I really need to take a course or something. Maybe I'll look that up for the fall classes.... I may also need to do a course in using my new camera. My hubby may suggest I RTFM :) in other the pdf/manual on how to operate it... nah!!! ppfttt!!!

Anyway... I made some more progress this weekend on some more cards... I still have to take good photos of them before I can post... I managed to churn out another 3 on Saturday night... I was very impressed with myself. I've been finding lately that I'm getting a little overwhelmed with all the products and styles of card-making out there in the blog world that I forget to use my taste/design. So.. on Saturday I managed to leave my ITouch (I use my IT to download my fav cards that I might CASE) upstairs and create 3 cards all on my way/style. I'm so excited to show you. I haven't quite decided which one is going to be used at the upcoming Shoebox swap on Wednesday this week. I'd better make up my mind quick..seems I've got to crop for 10 people.Ekkkk!!

Urgh!! I suppose I'd better hit the hay...seems it's work tomorrow.

Sorry there's no photo :( I'm too tired to even try and find one to post ;}

Some sparkle...

Here's one of those crazy cards I was up late creating on Friday night... I was so happy with this card I made another one but changed it slightly with an embossing plate...I'll show you that in the next day or so.. Anyway.. I originally created this card for my sister-in-laws birthday which was on Monday. I didn't have Marina Mist in an I used the marker and versamark and clear embossing a little bit of Tempting Turquoise ink.. I love how it turned out ;) don't you!!

This card will be in my Sept class.....check out the dates below.

See the sparkle...

Gotta go... and place my SU! order..

Happy Birthday Thatcher!

So I've been busy this past weekend making & total I made 6 cards.. I was on a crafty roll ;}

Firstly I made this card for my daughters little buddy Thatcher who was turning 3!... After I made it... I wondered whether I had already done the exact card for him the year before...did I Shan? I don't have many little boy I kept it simple & bright. PLus... it's so nice to go back to the basics and just doodle/colour with my Stampin Up Markers!!

I still have spots open on my classes... contact me if you want some fun!
