Class cards from June

Here are some more cards that we made back in June last year.

This one is made using the Bo Bunny "Timepiece" collection. I just loooove these papers!
A simple layered card with an organza bow and Le Suh 3D.


This embroidered card was designed by my Mum, Patricia. As soon as the girls in class saw it there was lots of  "oohs and aahs" and I was asked if we could make it in class. It really is a beautiful card and the 3D came in a few different colours so there were some nice colour combinations.


A week later we did this version of the card. Again in a variety of different colours.


June was the anniversary of Evelyn Wilkinson's passing. I had the privilege of working with Evelyn and knew her for about 8 years. She was a huge influence on me and a great mentor. She was the one who told me that I could teach classes. I would NEVER have thought I could, but she saw something in me that I didn't know was there. I will always be grateful to Evelyn for her faith in me and for all that she did for me.

The next two cards were designed by Evelyn and taught in her classes, which I attended for about 6 years. In her memory we reproduced these cards.

August Challenge

Thank you to everyone who entered the August Challenge. The theme was "Beautiful Borders" and I think it was quite a challenge as we didn't get as many entries as usual. We did get some gorgeous cards though and the winner this time was Glenda with her stunning ivory and gold card using the Quickutz Die - Petite Petals. Congratulations Glenda, you now have a $20 voucher to spend in store. Here is Glenda's winning card The encouragement award this month goes to Jean Riches for her lovely use of the Marianne Die to create a fan. What a great idea! The die itself is gorgeous but teamed up with this beautiful Martha Stewart punched border and hand made flowers, it's beautiful. Well done Jean. This card was also made by Glenda and it takes the theme of borders out of the box, by using flowers as the border. Clever idea!
Rhonda's card using one of my favourite dies in turquoise and white, again with some lovely punched borders.
Dorothy's card is simply elega…
