A workshop card changed a little..

Been neglecting my blog recently as we have been decorating and that took over my life.

Card I have to show you was made at Linda's workshop. I changed the image on the front of the card as the original one didn't look right. It was supposed to be a snail that when you pulled the tab in and out it moved but because I hadn't placed it quite right , it didn't work.

Some more finished projects

I am pleased to say that I have now finished all the cards that needed finishing. There are a few that I have decided to change completely and they are in a new box of  'to do '. :-) 

The first 2 are from Linda's class. I can't remember whose class the 3rd card was done in but it is made from Stampin Up products. I think it may have been Deb's class :-) 

3d embossing folder and waxes. Love the effect of this. Picture doesn't show the rich colours.

This is one of the 'impossible' cards

This is a great male card using Stampin Up products.

A workshop card adapted

The card I have to show you today is one that was made at Linda's workshop. The original card was just the like the first picture - without the greeting and gems.  I loved the papers used but thought it looked unfinished so I have attached it to another card blank. I added the greeting an gems and really like it now.

A couple of Scrapbook Layouts

We are decorating at the moment and whilst clearing out the bedroom I came across some old photos. Amongst these were some of my Mum & Dad when they were young so I have decided to scrap them and start a memory book..

Here are the first two that I have done. My Dad aged 6 and my Mum I think is about 16 years old.

Some Finished Workshop Cards

This afternoon I have been up in my craft room finishing off some more projects that I had. I am glad to say that I have now almost completed all those that just needed inserts. 

Here are 3 that were projects from one of Debbie's workshops. The first 2 cards are 4 x 4 inch little cards made using Stampin Up stiff. Images stamped and coloured using alcohol pens. 

This is a shaker card. These don't always work for me as the shaker stuff gets stuck. :-)

Mother's Day Cards

My husband is decorating at the moment so I have been trying to stay out of his way which meant I could spend some time up in my craft room. I have been making a couple of Mother's day cards.

They have just been loaded to my Etsy shop here

This is a 6"x 6" scalloped kraft card, made with some lacy trim and wooden letters. Very simple but love the look of it.

6" x 6" white card , printed image using a digi kit. Greeting has been computer generated. 

A5 card with decoupaged flowers.

Unfinished Projects - Part 2

Here is the next lot of my 'unfinished' projects. Again these didn't need much finishing..but they are now. :-) As with the previous ones, these cam from workshops and craft days. I think the penguin card was actually made years ago at one of my first craft workshops.

Thank you for reading
