stampin up class I attended

A friend had is a stampin up demonstrator. She is so creative that I have to attend her workshops to see what new she comes up with.

This is the first card that we did. To make the background under the snowflakes we used a brayer wrapped in suran wrap. WHAT A GREAT IDEA. I obviously have never done this before and it gives such a cool effect. The silver paper is new from SU. It is almost like beehive paper - it is thin and crinkley. So easy to use and the rolls have so much paper on them.

This was what the demonstrator created for us as a gift for coming. A cute little paper clip purse book mark. So fun!

This was the gift idea that we created. It is a tile note board. We embossed, used staz on ink and embellished. There is the pic of the front and back.

This card is so easy, economical and fun to create. It is made with a paper bag and has lots of room to put pictures inside and write a little note in the side. So much fun!

opps - this is obviously a demo for me since I rolled the jumbo roller upside down - DUH!

It's been a long time.....

Well I know it has been a long time since I posted anything. I was going through withdrawl for crafting so I had to pull all of my accessible supplies out and see what I could do. This first card is my version of a card in the new PaperCraft Xmas magazine. It is very simple and easy. This card would be very easy to mass produce, yet it still looks really nice.

This card is my version of Lisa Stenz's Christmas Present Card. It is actually a really fun card to make. Picture 2 shows it taken apart so you could write on it.

I do have another post to add perhaps I should wait for later, but you know me, I can't resist. Hopefully I will be doing more crafting in the near future.
