December Class - Four Feathers

This month I decided we should have a break from Christmas as I suspect, if you are as organised as me (chuckle, chuckle!), Christmas crafting is all done and dusted - yeah right - in my head it is in reality I still have stacks to do but nevertheless I thought it would be nice to have a break from it for this month's class.

So, I decided we would go for an autumnal theme, using the Four Feathers stamp set.  I must confess I originally dismissed this set on first glance through the catalogue but as time went by and I saw more and more lovely creations done with it, I decided to give in.  Now, inevitably, I love it!!

Without further ado, here is what we made.

The project is a Perpetual Calendar which, whilst a bit of a labour of love, looks fab completed and makes a really nice gift.


 

We then made two cards using the baby wipe technique, an oldie but a goodie.

 

And then finally a third card using daubers direct on to the stamp to get a blended tone.

 

 
I hope you liked the projects and I will be back real soon with some samples from the upcoming Spring/Summer catalogue!

It's nearly SALE-A-BRATION time...



OMG are you gonna love Sale-a-Bration this year.  For those who have no idea what I am talking about, Sale-a-Bration is Stampin' Up!'s biggest promotion of the year when you can receive free products (we all love a freebie right?) and it all begins on 6 January 2015, when we all have those post Christmas blues and need a good promotion to cheer us up.  I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!

I was very privileged to be asked by Stampin' Up! to produce a display table for the recent Sale-a-Bration Tour which visited seven destinations throughout the UK.  Not only was it a great privilege and honour but I also got to get my hands on a brand new product before anyone else, now that was super exciting.

So although it is still a month away, I am now in a position to share a few of the projects I made for the display table.  It is with a stamp set called Lotus Blossom and is a two step, in fact three step stamp set.

Here they are on the table...


And here are a few close ups...




 






 

I cannot wait to be able to show you the whole catalogue but hope you enjoy these snippets until then!

November Class...

Thought it was about time I updated my blog with this month's class.  We made two projects and three cards this month using my absolute favourite papers, All Is Calm.   I am going to be so sorry these will be gone when the Autumn/Winter catalogue retires, guess I am just gonna have to start stockpiling now!!! 
 
Anyhow, here is what we made.

The first item is a wine bottle cover, it is based on something I saw on line but had no further details so I made it up as I went along.  See what you think.




 Here is a close up of the label using the brilliant Mingle All the Way stamp set.


We then made a box of crackers, I love these little beauties.



We then went on to make three cards, I was really selling the Christmas theme this month as it will soon be over for another year, can you believe that.

This card was made using the Holiday Home stamp set and the ever reliable Lovely as a Tree.


The next two use the Ornamental Pine stamp set.



I hope you enjoy our November projects.
