Just to let you know that I am teaching two embossing techniques workshops at Katies Krafts in Cwmcarn, Wales this Saturday. We are making the Dress Forms that Marion Emberson was teaching at the NEC in March and also a technique Tag Book.
Hopefully we'll have full classes and lots of fun!
Here is a stepper card using a small piece one of the Fat Quarters from Docrafts. I did a little rough stitching around the edge before mounting it onto my card. I die-cut the flower from felt, added a die-cut vellum doily behind it and a pleated ribbon band across the front of the card. I have to say I'm really pleased with how this one turned out, really pretty.
Here is a very simple card I made for one of my samples a couple of months ago. I wanted to 'pretty up' the Chronology Range from Docrafts and so went for a blue theme with a big satin ribbon. I think it works rather well!
Wanted to share with you a layout I made using the new All Aboard range from Docrafts.
As I traveled a bit when I was younger this range of goodies is perfect for scrapping my memories and I can see a few more pages on the horizon!
Thought I'd share another one of my DO sample cards.
For this one I used the new Lace Heart die and stamp from the new Vintage Notes range.The paper is from the same range, as is the sentiment stamp. I made the flowers from lace; running stitched, gathered and a button added to the centre. I have to admit to really loving the 'Shabby Chic-ness of this new collection and think it will become a favourite of mine.
Last summer I stamped out a few Lily of the Valley stamps and coloured them with Promarkers. The toppers have sat waiting to be given a home on a card and I've finally gotten around to making something that isn't a sample. Here are a couple of them:
I've left them sentiment free - I'll add these when I know where they're going.
Just thought I'd share with you a couple of the things I've made with the new goodies out from Docrafts this month:
This one is using the new Chronology range, very Sir Tim-ish and really affordable. Great for men's cards.
This wall hanging uses the new Vintage Notes range. There is all sorts going on here: Fabric Self Adhesive Paper, Lace, Die Cuts, Crochet Flowers and a little bit of stitching - all adding up to a pretty, shabby chic look.
