New Cards

Ah - the much awaited cards! I have had such fun over the last few days making some cards with the new Kaisercraft papers. We will be making some card packs up really soon and these cards are really just sample ideas! I'll pop a couple of sets on the blog today and a couple more tomorrow (just to keep you coming back..!)

Anyway, today was a bit of fun. I ran a school holiday programme. In the morning session we made Tissue boxes (Kaisercraft of course). The youngest I had was 6 and she was very capable! All of them were very keen to use the craft knives... and we only had one "slip". At least red blood looks bit like red paint...

In the afternoon we had another group arrive for the Picture Frames class. We had boys and girls turn up for this one - and again I was really impressed with the finished products. We played with paint, papers, pearls, rhinestones (how many rhinestones can YOU fit on one project?!), punches, kindyglitz etc.

What fun. Next week I'm running a Cardmaking class and a 6x6 scrapbooking class.

Now I'm going to go and create a sample wall hanging for the Scrap and Craft Escape I'm tutoring at in Temuka in the weekend. Spaces still available. Only $20 from 9am-9pm and it includes a light dinner (and morning and afternoon tea, free giveaways, free workshops from 4 tutors, spot prizes and a heap of fun). I think the Christchurch ladies should come on down for the day! Let me know...

In addition to that, there will be sales tables and I can pop back to Timaru during the lunch hour if people want to visit my shop... Now that sounds like crazy fun!
