August Class Projects

Hi,

I held my penultimate classes this weekend and they were great fun if not emotional.

As from October I will no longer be running my monthly classes at Sue’s Crafting Place, Bishops Cleeve but will be doing online videos/tutorials so I can reach a wider audience.  My hubby and I are also starting a new adventure together with our family so this seems the best time to make changes to my business.  I hope you will continue to support me and may be those of you who couldn’t come to my monthly classes will now be able to participate!

Here are the projects we made this month, I hope you like them and as ever if you want to order the products click on the various products which will take you to my online shop.  Remember spend £30+ with me and allow me to contact you and you will get unlimited access to the videos for these projects and the PDF tutorial will be emailed to you once the order has gone through.  Don’t forget to use the August Hostess Code in order to receive a FREE gift just from me!

My inspiration this month came from Dawn Griffith, a truly inspirational lady and fellow Demonstrator. Click on the two links below to see her projects.

May Hostess Code and this months class

Hi,

Yes I know I’m running a little late with issuing the May Hostess Code! lol  What can I say, but I’ve been so busy playing with some of the amazing pre-order us lucky Demonstrators get to order before the new Catalogue is released in June!  You are going to be amazed at how fantastic this new Annual Catalogue is! So many beautiful new stamp sets, all NEW Designer Series Papers which are to die for! On top of that there’s the new ribbons, new embellishments – oh and of course this year we have 5 yes 5 brand new In-Colors!  You have got to see them! I even bought a new dress which has matching flower colours to the new Lemon/lime Twist! lol

So why not place an order with me today from the retiring Catalogues to ensure you get a copy of the Brand New Catalogue when it’s released on 1 June! I will personally post one to you along with a bespoke card showcasing some of the gorgeous DSP and one of the New In-colors, along with a very useful bookmark again showing all the new In-colors, so you can mark your favourite page of stamps etc!  Remember to use the New Hostess Code (find it on my right side bar) and you will also receive a FREE gift from me (may even be some of the new Ribbon or embellishments!).

This months class is a small affair as alot of people are away or busy, so I have decided to make a more technical card – A Pivot Twist Card!  I made one of these months ago before they became the latest trend, but because it can take longer than some of my cards to make in a class, I have not been able to teach this one.

However as I say I only have one class of four coming on Saturday, so I thought now is a great opportunity to showcase the card!  Thanks goes to both  Tuppence coloured (here’s a link to her blog Tuppence Coloured) for her inspiration as well as Frances Martin (here’s a link to her Frances Martin) for help with making the pivot mechanism easier to teach).  I have written a tutorial and made a gorgeous card which I am looking forward to teaching tomorrow.

If you would like to get your hands on the tutorial so you can make this on-trend and amazing Pivot twist Card, then place an order (£20+) with me via my online shop using the new Hostess Code (M4S6FNBU).  As soon as I have received confirmation of your order, I will email you your Tutorial.  If you would like a Copy of the Brand New Catalogue, once you have placed your order, email me with your full details, including your postal address and I will post one out to you as soon as they are available.

I am also sorting out all the gorgeous new Ribbon and Dsp ready for you to get your hands on a Share of them all.  So if you fancy having a share of them, please email me with your details so I can let you know when they are ready to purchase.  Check back here in the next couple of weeks for more details.

Below are the products I used to make this gorgeous Pivot/twist Card.

High Tide Cards using Brayering and Sponging Techniques

Hi,

What happens when you put the High Tide Stamp Set together with the Brayering and Sponging Techniques?  Well, you get these amazing results! Two beautiful cards that we will be making in my Classes in April! Aren’t they just amazing! Thanks to Serenestamper for her inspiration for the sunset card. Here’s the link to her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdO0djZ7VUo.  The second card I created myself and had a lightbulb moment! lol I had seen a few cards using either the Wink of Stella Pen https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141897 to create glisten on the sea or whisper white craft ink https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=101731 to create waves.  However I wanted more texture and suddenly thought, ‘Clear Embossing Powder’! https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=109130 Well as you can see it made a fantastic card with lots of texture on the sea! I love it!

Here are the two projects, the first one was inspired by Serenestamper and the second one was my creation!

I hope you agree these projects are gorgeous and I hope you will want to make them too!

Unfortunately, both my Friday and Saturday Classes are full, but you can still make these, by placing an order for £30+ which includes the High Tide Stamp Set with me.  Once your order goes through and I have been notified, I will email you the written Tutorial and a private link to the videos showing you how to make them.  The Tutorials and videos are only available to anyone placing an online order for £30+ and allowing me to contact them to be able to send the tutorials etc.
