Found a "Next" calender (this years) in a charity shop for 20p and knew I could do something with it !! So I made Sophie, Alysons daughter this book. Had great fun making it, the puppy photo`s are so cute. Have also put photo`s of my two dogs and Chester is Sophies dog.
Made this ATC Rak today for the June Rak Attack on the Docrafts forum. It just goes to show what you can do with all the little bits of pretty paper you have or in my case can find in the waste bins at AMOM after class !!
Actually finished all 3 in class, now thers a first !!
Hero Arts class no 4 last Saturday was more stamping fun !! Again made 3 very tasteful cards and enough to make 3 more. As usual I made alot more with leftovers. Didn`t go stamping mad this time.......
Embossed the cards and elephants with designs from my cuttlebug (love that as well) and used scraps of paper from my stash.
The stamps are by Hero Arts and as you know...I LOVE Hero Art stamps !!
Enjoying a week off work this week !! Surpose to be catching up on house jobs, BUT............not much has been done !! Have made a few elephant cards ( much more fun than housework ) Did catch up with a friend on Tuesday, just sat in her garden and drank tea and nattered for 3hrs, how do we do it !!
We also had some colourcore card and a piece of paper "delight" by fancypants to decorate. We also used a stamp and white stazon to stamp the swirls on the acetate. Didn`t skid either !!! A lovely colourfull book !!
We started off with 2 sheets of 12 x 12 acetate sheets which we had to cut into 4, 6 x 6. Then we had a piece of acetate overlay 6 x 12, so that was cut into 2 so we had 10 pages all 6 x 6 in total.
Now I`m not a fan of acetate as I either get sticky all over it and greasy fingermarks, BUT I don`t like to get beaten, so I booked in at AMOM last Saturday to do the "Acetate Mini Book" I`am sooooooo pleased I did as this is what I made !!
The flowers have been stamped on different paper and then decoupaged on.
These are the 3 cards, the rest are what I made afterwards
Hero Arts no 3 session was great fun !! We get to make 3 cards, but have enough to make 3 more !! BUT I get to make many more because as usual I have a stamping frenzy!! This is 3 out of 8 sessions. We get to use 4 sets of stamps twice and make different cards each time.
