Techniques x 3

In Lesson 31 (March 29, 30, 31, April 5, 6, 7, 10) I will be introducing 3 new techniques. Most of you have seen these on the shelves. The samples have been steadily growing because they are all so much fun to make as well as being very effective.
I  came across Faux Brick Wall in a Stampin' Up Newsletter and I gave it a go. It does require a little patience but the effort is really worth while. In this sample I used one of my favourite stamp sets Extreme Elements.
The second technique is Faux Pressed Flowers. It's very easy.
And finally Embedded Embossing. This technique is just as easy. Don't you just love black, white and grey?

You have probably noticed that I've added Thursdays to the list of dates.

This Sunday (March 27) is Lesson 30 Bliss and Sweet Summer. Most of you have done this lesson at least once but if you missed out or would like to do it again just ring or email me. You have until March 31 to get your free stamp sets (Sale-a-bration). Just click on the sidebar link for more information.

A Blissful Lesson 30

The focus for lesson 30 will be the stamp sets Bliss and Sweet Summer.
Ruby, Jemima and I were watching You Tube when we came across a lip gloss card video by Slater Dee. Boy, were we excited. I decorated the front and inside with the Sweet Summer set.

Here is another card using the same set.

There are quite a few cards using the Bliss set as well. I will also teach you how to make a Bliss Box.

Dates for this Lesson 30 are March 15, 16, 22, 23 and 27. Let me know if you are interested.
Don't forget that this Sunday (March 13) is Lesson 29.

Workshop Make and Takes

This Monday Judy has invited some friends to a workshop at my house to celebrate Sale-a-bration. Judy and her friends are talented scrapbookers so I thought that they would like to make a bag and matching gift cards.
You have until the end of March to take advantage of Sale-a-bration. Check out the link on the sidebar for more information.
