January Card Class

As the new year starts it was lovely to see my ladies after the Christmas break.  Here are our cards created at my January class.  Can't wait for next class so my ladies can have a play with all the sale-a-bration goodies up for grabs.



PIANO CARD



This is a beautiful card I cased off Pinterest there are a few different variations of this card but the main shape remains the same, we made a template for the top shape and simply drew round the template and cut the top shape to make the piano.  The keys and keyboard were used easily with the brilliant SU trimmer.  I drew the little book as a template and had a sheet of music paper I had zoomed smaller on my printer/scanner to make the little page.   Now I must give a big pat on the back to Michelle Last for her fab you tube video showing you how to make the gorgeous rose from the owl punch it is so easy and makes a gorgeous flower... I think my ladies are all wanting the owl punch now with this extra bonus make it can be used for :-) the greeting was added inside and can be altered to suit lots of occasions some ladies did Happy Anniversary and some did Birthday.

GIFT WALLET

 

 
 
 

This is another simple project but will be great to use throughout the year when wanting to give money or a gift card as a present for friends and family the instructions were again from you tube and a bit of scoring and folding and decoration and it is completed..  I can not find the link at this time but will add it when my computer is back on line.

AHOY THERE



I just love this stamp set it is fabulous for a males birthday and with the pennant punch (that I borrowed of mum lol) just finished it off a treat.  Again there are lots of similar style cards about with this versatile stamp set and I have used the new paper pad from the Spring/summer catalogue for the stripes and the flags.  This card was easy to make and I think my ladies were surprised how quick it all came together once all the components were in place.
