Monthly Team Training

Good Morning

Kerry and I have our joint monthly team training this evening in Quedgeley.  I am looking forward to stamping and eating!  I will show you the projects in a few days but thought I would share today the cards I have made for the top 3 sales demonstrators in my team.

If you check out my blog regularly you will see that these cards all started out with a layout that I used for my Monday cards, I have just made a few subtle changes.

I hope Trevor, Donna and George like their cards.  Well done to you all.

My last Monday Card of 2012...

Good Morning I hope you had a great weekend.

Here is our last card from my Monday class.  It is a very simple Christmas card.  I left the Season's Greetings stamp set on the table and everone added there own sentiment to the bottom of the card.  The designer paper square comes from Snow Festival and there are two sheets of 12 x 12 paper in the pack which have 16 squares which you can cut out the layer as I have.

Right I am straight into a busy week......Tomorrow I am Christmas shopping with my mum and sister Wednesday is team training, Thursday I have a class, and Friday I have a class and it's my birthday too.......

I will catch up with you again soon.  Have a great week.

Monday Cards

Good Morning  well today it's time for our third card.  Once again its a simple card and plain for a greeting to be added at a later date.

I apologise for the photo quality there was very little light!! a hazard of winter I guess.....

My colour combo is regal rose and whisper white.   I used the Summer Silhoutte stamp set which I received for FREE at convention this year.  The embossing folder is the fancy fan folder.  You will be seeing this lots I think!

A little bow using the taffatta ribbon adds the finishing touch.

Monday Cards

Good Morning

Here is our next card from my Monday card class.  This card is so simple and I left it plain so that a greeting coud be added at a later date.

The butterfly was punched out twice and layered up.  I am loving the brushed silver and silver glimmer paper.  I have used the leaves sizzlit which I am sure you have guessed is a favourite of mine.  The circle is a new 2 1/2" punch.

Join me tomorrow for our third card.  Have a great day.

Monday Cards

Good Morning

Last Monday I had a lovely class with 11 ladies, we make 4 cards at this class and also learn a new technique.

Over the Christmas break I am going to set up a page so that you came see the technique instructions and have a go yourself, so please do check back for this.

This month we learnt the emboss resist technique.  This technique went down well with everyone and I must say I love the effect.

Here is the card we made

We used the Flowering Flourishes stamp set and the colour combo is bashful blue, night of navy and very vanilla.

The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and was cut out using the matching dies and big shot.

Good Morning all....

Well good morning :)  it's been ages since I posted November was such a busy month for me especially towards the end and although I have lots to show you there just hasn't been time to take pictures and blog.

Thankfully Hannah is now off her crutches etc and has resumed the school run all by herself.  She was gone at 7.30 this morning and I feel as if I have done loads this morning , mind you I am still not dressed but that's next on the list!!!!

Last Thursday was my card and 3D project class, a week later than normal but here is what we created.

First of all we made a lovely sparkly Christmas card, the layout was inspired by Kerry Timms as we made a similar card at last months training session.

This card was made using the Ornament Keepsake stamp set and the matching framlit dies.  As there was an offer last month on this set we used all the components you could purchase.  Thank you to all my wonderful customers who purchased this deal.

The greeting came from Season's Greetings which a lot of my ladies received earlier in the month at my extravaganza.

Although it's difficult to see we spritzed the entire card with the vanilla smooch spray.  (mixed comments from my ladies on this)  so I will have to try something else using this and try to convert them.

Our 3D project was a box which when opened held a gift card.  You could also fit a bar of chocolate inside if you wanted.  Again I incorporated all the items on offer and a few extras of course.

Thank you for looking at my projects, I will be back soon with my cards and technique from my card class last night.
