For my last class we make a mystery project that is only revealed on the night of the class and generally we make something other than a card. This year we made a layered Christmas decoration and matching gift bag. Here is what we made:
And here are some close ups of the different sections of the decoration and bag.
This project was so much fun to design and I hope everyone enjoyed the class as much as I did.
As a little thank you from me I also made everyone a decorated bag with a handmade button card inside. This is how they came out - I was really happy with the design and had heaps of fun die cutting and piecing all the elements together.
I am lucky enough to be returning to Scrappy Hollow in 2014 to run more card making classes (YIPEEEEE!!!!!) and I am so looking forward to heading our creative talents in a different direction. Each class will focus on an inspirational element and then also cover some new techniques or elements that we have not used in previous classes. I am even putting down my edge distressor and ink for many of the classes which those of you who know my work is a HUGE challenge for me but I am hoping the ladies will enjoy the "new" Leanne style cards. Knowing me though some inking and distressing will sneak in from time to time just to feed my passionate addiction to all things shabby but chic.
So my February Class is inspired by love as February is the month of love with Valentine's Day on the 14th. In the class you will also learn how to:
· Use MFT inset dies and peek a boo dies to create card backgrounds
· Create a shaker card using MFT insta frame die· Make hand stitched embellishments with MFT layered heart die
· Use pearls, sequins and punched confetti to add scattered accents on cards
· Create dainty paper bows
· Create a wrapped twine wreath to highlight embellishments
· Different ways to mount card onto the card base
And here is a snippet of what we will create ( the samples are on display at Scrappy Hollow too).
With classes and Design Team assignments over for the year I hope to have a little time to play along with some of my favourite card challenge blogs so hopwfully I'll be back blogging again soon with some new card creations.
Thank for stopping by!
