Special Reason Make and Take Class

Welcome back crafty people

I thought I would share with you all a class I held today in my home.

It was based around the retiring bundle 'Special Reason' 144720. It is currently still available. But I have no idea for how much longer. Go order this gorgeous bundle NOW by clicking HERE!
It, along with a couple of others is a definite favourite of mine and has been featured on a number of my cards.
I made a bunch of customer Thank You cards for my lovely customers. 
And then let them know that this is what they would be creating for their next class when I handed out their orders and cards.

Here are the  cards I made for them to show my appreciation.
I showcased this set of cards in a blog hop with Janneke around a month ago. 
You can see the card set HERE in more detail.

I woke with a nasty but bearable headache this morning, which for me n ormally leads to migraine for a few days.... But so far, touch wood all is still a the bearable level!
I was feeling a little overwhelmed to start with this morning, as I knew my class was going to be larger than normal due to the school holidays. I normally only have around 8 people per class but today I had 3 young teenagers + a customers mum joining in. 
So, after rejigging the seating arrangements I managed to fit them all in  + I had a couple of spaces spare! Which was great as I had a drop in lol.
I also had the pleasure of hosting another Demonstrator and friend Kayla Renee MacAulay from the other side of my little island state.
Here is a quick shot of a couple of Kayla's cards made today at the class.

No automatic alt text available.


Here is my set up ready for the day.

You can see in the bottom left picture my set up and samples ready for my next class which is on the 29th of May.

One reason I love teaching classes is seeing the faces of the people who come and them seeing the end results of their work. Everyone comes to these classes for different reasons, and I try to accomodate those needs as much as I can.

Here are some happy snaps of the lovely ladies working, laughing, chatting and helping each other.

And here is another set of 3 pics with all of them holding up some of their completed cards.

Each class consists of one harder more technique orientated card while the other 3 are easier and less technical. 
Todays hard card was a window card. They had to learn how to align dies and stamps using the stamp-a-ma-jig tool. I only had one complaint lol.

Here is the window card.

Some got the knack quicker than others, as in most class situations. But, they all did really well and perservered to create their (hard) card. And as usual once completed LOVED how it looked.
They all loved creating the other 3 cards and none minded the crowded feel too much. 

Well I hope you enjoyed seeing the smiling faces of my class today.

I will be back again in a couple of days sharing a project made from a lovely set available from the new catalogue.

Dear Friend, For You - #GDP083 - #CI07




 Welocme back crafty people...
I have actually had a full day at home today....That means I got to create whoo hoo :)

You might have seen from my previous post that it is currently school holidays in the little state I live in. For me that means my children become the focus of the household...
HAPPY KIDS HAPPY MUM lol
It also works the other way too though, hahaha! 

#Birthdayblooms #Touchesoftexture #KOCreationscards #Inspiredbynature #Imbringingrakcardsback #GDP083 #CI07

Todays cards will be entered into #GDP083 and #CI07
The team from Global Design Project have given us the challenge of Sparkles/Bling while the Design Team over at Colour Inkspiration have given us a colour swatch of  *Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette and *Tip Top Taupe.. *Two of these colours are about to retire fro t he old catalogue,
BUT we have 5 new Incolours for us to play with coming out in the new catalogue along with heaps of other new products too!!

Here are the pics of this weeks challenges

  


I thought by putting these two challenges together I could come up with a card that was pretty and classy too. 
I chose Bling from #GDP083. So, I added a touch of gold for a gorgeous and classy finish for my card design.

Here are the cards.

Dear Friend


#Birthdayblooms #Touchesoftexture #KOCreationscards #Inspiredbynature #Imbringingrakcardsback #GDP083 #CI07
               
       
  
I thought I would have a play with our Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder (TIEF) to get started. 
I used Tip Top Taupe and inked onto the raised side of the embossing folder..I wiped parts of it off..huffed my breath onto the ink and laid the card over the inked open folder, rubbing the card stock gently with my hand to make sure the ink and card made contact. I did this twice to give the doubled effect you can see on both cards..

For You


#Birthdayblooms #Touchesoftexture #KOCreationscards #Inspiredbynature #Imbringingrakcardsback #GDP083 #CI07
         


 What did you think??
 The stamp set I used is my all time favourite 'Touches of  Texture'. The dog wood blossoms were coloured using an aqua painter with Pink Pirouette for the flowers, I coloured the centres of the flowers using Daffodol Delight and I used Mint Macaron for the leaves. 
I inked the spritz stamp with Daffodil Delight to gove the impression of pollen in the air. The bees were the next logical step from that, appropriately theit legs are also thick with golden yellow pollen.


A picture of both cards side by side.

 You can see from the side by side picture that one card has been stepped up. I added more of the flowers plus more of the wire effect, I also added metallic gold thread behind the sentiment


If you would like a list of all items used, then I have added them to the carousel below for your convenience
