Twas the Night Before

I am so sorry for taking so long to post this layout that we did way back in January.
This definitely was a labor of love as we laid a wood floor with 1/4" pieces of inked paper, we made a window frame adding transparency sheet to the window to add to the effect of looking through glass. We used several Cricut cartridges, Christmas Cheer, Paper dolls, Scal for the rocking chair and kitty, we also used inking, chalking, brads. This is Bev's layout, and she did such a good job, when I get the others here, we will try to post them as well.

Magnolia Stamps Cardmaking Class at SCRAPS

Saturday I offered a cardmaking class at SCRAPS featuring one of my favorite stamps "Magnolia"

I had planned on 3 to 4 ladies attending, which I had 3, but I was totally unprepared when we had 6 teenage girls come in to make a card. Actually, only 4 of them stayed to make the card. They were so good, and patient with me, as I had to cut their cards and get more things ready for them, not to mention we had to share blending pens and waterbrushes.

We had a very good time and their cards came out so good...everyone used their own talents and ideas in the creation of their cards...yes, we had a model card to go by, but they made them truly their own. Truly they all were great "scraplifters" :)

One more card will be added as this cardmaker also did her card a little different and she wanted to add vellum to her card so we will post her card at a later time.

Please leave a comment on their cards so that we can encourage them to continue in this hobby we all love.

I had a great time teaching this class...great students...everyone followed directions and did such a wonderful job...someone is going to be very pleased when they receive these cards.
Thanks for looking.
