NEW Penny Black

Demo Day - Part three

Final cards from our Demonstration event  - if you do get a chance to pop along to our store all these
cards are on display in our Classroom so do pop in and look at them as they really do look lovelier in real life.

here is another one of Karens stunning La Blanche cards, lots of 3d on this one
that can't be picked up by the camera.

Another Caz Creation.  Marianne Birds and branches.
Caz used the Distress Paints to colour the leaves and also used one
of the birdhouse stamp and die sets also from Marianne.

Paula made this happy sunny card with her own Sizzix Designs

Even more birds, branches, flowers and birdhouses from Caz

Sue M used the cameo set of punches to make this lovely card

Here is a lovely Tag that Charry made using the Joy! die

This was Karen's Make and Take Tag.  She has used the Coredinations
cardstock with an embossing folder to create the two toned background.

Caz who is most definitely NOT a sewer enjoyed
playing with the dies, felt and some threads to make these
cute bag hangers - proof that you don't have to be a master
at sewing to have fun with these dies.  They cut the felt beautifully and 
the True Felt come in a lovely selection of colours and is
beautiful quality.

Here is Caz's Make and Take.  A little bit of felt, die cutting and stamping

From Trash to Treasure - Caz re-used this parcel tape
inside to make this cute little trinket pot.  With the number
of packing tapes we get through we think Caz will be
making these in her sleep!  A great little gift idea.  Teamed
up with some lovely papers and dies who would have known?

Sorry for all the birdy/owl cards but Caz really did enjoy her
prep time and made so many cards :)  Here is the Marianne
Owl and the flowers made in felt.

Almost at the end and Caz made this 3d birdhouse
using the Marianne Birdhouse and Flowers stamp and die set

This time Caz used the Marianne Butterfly die.

And lastly some more cute felt creations.  The Chick was
made by cutting the ear parts off the owl.  We also think this would
be a great robin/penguin for Christmas.

Well we hope you have enjoyed looking at these cards.  We will be back later with
a picture of last weeks Create and Take.

Papers.  A Memory Box "Hello" thrown in for good measure
