Busy Weekend - But Great Things Accomplished

Pop up 1Well what a very busy weekend I have had. Saturday we had regional training - cards swapped, new stamps played with and ooooh new punches are coming out soon - 2 words for you- Scallop Square!!! Am very excited and can't wait to get my wee paws on one! That and the scallop edge will be available in the next mini - out December 1st - How will I wait till then?? I guess I will have to keep myself busy making lots of new cards - and maybe you can help me out by booking a workshop?? - that ought to keep my mind otherwise occupied till December!

Here's a couple of things from training:

Trudi H made a great pop up card - this is my version though (which is almost an exact copy - if it ain't broke why fix it??) (I raced home from training, quickly made dinner then popped down to Nadine's place and we re-created all we could remember (thanks trusty camera) (Above is a close up of the detail)Here's the front:

Pop up 2

and here's the the surprise inside: Pop up 3

We all learned how to make a very cute Handbag - those who know me will know how much I love handbags, and how I have an extensive collection so you can imagine that I was keen to learn this one!! The weirdest thing....A guy showed us how!!! Thats right - Dave from SU in Utah showed us this little delight - not to mention some techniques as well, but I was a bit blinded by the handbag! Here's one of his samples:


If you want to learn how to make this (perfect size for gift cards, ipod, jewellery etc) or the pop up card, book a workshop with me soon and we'll create it together!

There was plenty more to show you but I will post more later on this week.
