October Card Class – Teacher appreciation and Halloween October 16, 2012

Unfortunately I cancelled my card class for September. It was for a good reason though – I attended our school market as a stall holder! What fun that was! And from there I have applied and been accepted to attend the Ruffled Bazaar Markets Christmas Spectacular, which is held at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds, Logan Rd on Staurday December 1, 3 – 8pm.

Anyway, onto this month’s card class…

We’ll be making a feminine and a neutral (could be for a man) gift bag with matching card

Some close ups

The card size is 3 x 3

These are for those wonderful teachers in our children’s lives – or just for any lovely person you want to give a gift 🙂

We will also be making 2 sweet little treat boxes with a halloween theme. I love these! They would make such cute little gifts at Christmas or Easter, just change up the colours and embellishments!

How cute is that little mummy?? There is a frankenstein and witch in this stamp set (SU! Googly Ghouls) as well, which can be used in place of the mummy.

So, the usual detials

Class is this Thursday 18th October, 7.30pm

My House

Cost is $20

What are you planning for Teacher Appreciation Day?

Have a great week!

July Card Class – Little parcels of Love July 14, 2012

Hello everyone! I hope that this post finds you in good health and happy spirits.

This month’s class is focused on pretty packaging, that makes the recipient feel your love with all the time and effort you have put into their gift.

We’ll be making one of each of the following

First up is this cute little basket.

Can you see some delicious home baked goodies in here? Or maybe some soothing bath products? The possibilites will keep coming to you!

Next is this pint-sized luch pail. Isn’t it just darling?

I must add in here that both the basket and lunch pail ideas came from Nichole’s blog. Unfortunately the templates she used are no longer available for purchase, so I have created my own! I was quite pleased with the outcome 🙂

And last is a whimsical mini album.

A look at the inside.

Undo those pretty green bows to reveal the accordian fold pages just waiting for your personal touch!

This too was inspired by the talented Nichole.

Class will be held on Thursday 26th July at my home, 7.30pm

Cost is $20.

If you would like to come along please email me by Tuesday 24th July (freshcutsbylu@gmail.com)

Thanks for stopping in today, have a great week!

June Card Class June 26, 2012

Filed under: Cards,Classes,Stampin' Up!,Thank you — aliessa @ 2:39 am

Well, June Card Class has actually been and gone, but I thought I would show you the cards we made.

Card 1 – For this card I used the new SU framelits dies and Apothecary Art stamp set. I fell in love with these as soon as I opened the Autumn Winter Mini catalogue. To colour the flowers I pulled out my pastels. Such soft, pretty tones. The background is stamped in crumb cake with the motif from Always elegant.

Card 2 – very simple, yet effective. Again I have used the framelits (2 sizes) stamped with a PTI thank you stamp (available as a thank you gift). The bottom edge of the card was die cut with SU’s new edgelit die (again from the autumn winter mini) and then embossed with the coordinating embossing folder.

Card 3 – For this card I wanted to continue the simple theme, so I started with the cherry cobbler card base, added a whisper white mat then layered on the pretty blue DSP, which has been die cut with another edgelit die (can you see the cute little scallops on the bigger scallops?). I then stamped the large Thank You (PTI) in basic black and the little always (always elegant) in cherry cobbler. Finished off with some pale blue ribbon and a craft button and twine.

 

Card 4 – This card is a straight case from the SU June promotion. The stamp set we used is called Reason to Smile. Until the end of June it is available for FREE with a $125 order, or you can purchase it for $28.95 (clear) $35.95 (wood mount). The card base is Calypso Coral, then a very vanilla mat. This has been stamped with the flower outline in 3 colours – calypso coral, pool party and tangerine tango (stamped off first). Add the sentiment in the corner (sincere salutations). Run that through the big shot with the lower edge in the polka dots embossing folder. Add a pool party scallop border and loop some twine, done!

I enjoyed this class and it’s simplicity. It gave the ladies an opportunity to have a good play with the Big Shot, which we don’t usually have time for.

What have you made lately? Have you tried something new? My next post will show you something new I’ve tried (and struggled a little with).

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Crafting!
