It's half term and it certainly feels like it, I have the three kids at home. We drove to Glasgow to see some family and spent a few days there which was lovely. We came back down yesterday just in time for my card class. To say that I was slightly disorganised is probably being kind but hopefully the girls forgave me and it wasn't too bad.
The projects were Mothers Day/Female Birthday and first we did 2 fairly simple cards with punches and then a little handbag which I completely fluffed the measurements of and as a result the girls had to avoid some score marks, oh dear. Anyway the bags they made were gorgeous! I've got a couple of pictures here and I realise that I was so excited about the bags I didn't snap any of the other cards, nevermind I'll pop some on later.
Here are the bags from Becky, Louise, Juanita & Lydia.
Here they are together, so cuuuuuuuute!
Cardstock is Certainly Celery with so saffron Designer Series paper
Juanita used pink brads and Pear Pizazz poly stitched ribbon to tie her bag (the J is coloured in Old Olive), lovely!
This is Lydia's and the B is stamped in Certainly Celery, using the paper piercer on the scalloped circle is a lovely touch too!!
Becky opted for a beautiful flower in her circle and used the Certainly Celery Grosgrain ribbon and matching yellow brads. How gorgeous are these bags?!
And last but not least we have Louises bag, the focal point this time is off to the right and she has stamped some additional decoration using the small flower from Silhouette Sentiments which I think works really well.
Well done ladies! Believe it or not I felt pretty calm and stress free by the end of it all - who'd have thought it.
Will post some pics of the other cards later on.
