Classes This Week 22 May and 25 May

Greetings all. 

It's getting terribly close to Convention time in Canberra - wahoo! Hmm, must get on to doing some swaps! 

This week's class will show you how to make a flip card and a swing card using the new framelit dies in the current mini catalogue. This is a little trickier than it looks ... the framelit shape is only cut to the fold! You'll learn how!  

I've been looking at my favourite website, The Shabby Tea Room, recently - I just love the shabby chic look and the final card is inspired by this look. 



Usual details:-
10am Tuesday 22 May and 7.30pm Friday 25 May
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for 3 cards - all equipment and materials provided

SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN

I am going to be holding a children's class during the next school holidays on Tuesday 26 June. Here is a photo of some punch art I've been having fun with lately. I will prepare some further samples once I've got a few bookings and can gauge the interests of the children - I'm expecting girls between the age of about 8 and 13 so the cards are likely to be flowers and pretty things! 


Class details:-
10am - 2pm Tuesday 26 June
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for 3 cards - all equipment and material provided
Please BYO snack and lunch

ANGRY BIRDS CRAZY

My son, Thomas, is CRAZY about Angry Birds! Here, he has stuck bits of paper to his regular Angry Birds toys to make them into the Space Angry Birds characters. 


SO, I've been getting on board and making some Angry Birds characters using punch art. Tom has been my creative director, bringing in more and more of his toys until we had made so many, we decided to make them in to a scrapbooking page layout. 


WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK

I had a request to make a wedding card with a Parisian theme (I just happen to have some things that fit that category!) so came up with this:- 


I also had a baby shower to attend on Saturday so I made this onesie. 


MINI-RETREAT - Saturday 28 July - Sunday 29 July
Don't forget to book in for the mini-retreat in July!

GOING FORTNIGHTLY AND MOVING TUESDAYS

You may have noticed in the calendar dates above 2 major changes for classes following retreat. Firstly, I am going to reduce my classes to fortnightly - I am starting to miss spending Friday nights with my husband! And secondly, I'll be moving the Tuesday daytime classes to Friday - this will reduce the amount of time I'm spending setting up and tidying up for each class. I hope these changes won't affect your ability to come and enjoy our classes together because I still enjoy holding classes and spending time with you all.

I think that's all for this week. 

Happy stamping! 
Sally :)

Classes 8 May and 11 May

It's a flower card theme this week. 

Tina made me a lovely card for my birthday in January and since then, everybody who comes over has admired it and wanted to make it. So, with Tina's blessing, I bring you "Tina's fabulous hydrangea card with 50 glue dots". 

The second card is a sweet pea flower I've seen on various blogs - this one uses the butterfly punch. Finally, I just love the bunch of flower card inspired by the queen of flower cards, Valita.



Usual details:-
10am Tuesday 8 May and 7.30pm Friday 11 May
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
3 cards for $20 - all materials and equipment provided (although please BYO glue dots and pearls if you have them)

SUNDAYS - extra weekly class for 3 weeks

Mark your diaries! I'll be holding extra classes for the next 3 Sundays - 13 May, 20 May and 27 May. I've got heaps of swaps to make so if I'm working on cards, you can too!! The cards will be new designs but I haven't done them yet.
