Friday Night's Class

On Friday last week I had a class with a group of ladies who love to craft!!  It is always lovely to spend time with them and the evening flies by in a flash!!

I designed a project using the gorgeous Woodland Walk papers - the catalogue does not do them justice, they are so beautiful and can be used for so many different occassions.

We made a tri-shutter card and a top-note die box.

The tri-shutter card base was made using Garden Green card and the Woodland walk papers. Flowers are cut using the new Sizzix exclusive Fun Flowers die, some have been embossed with the polka dots embossing folder. The butterflies were cut in a variety of colours to co-ordinate with the Wood land walk papers.

A close up of the embossed butterfiles, cut using another Sizzix exclusive die - Beautiful Wings embosslit. The sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations stamp set punched and layered on to the polka dot frame from the Four Frames stamp set. The frame was punched out and layered up using the matching punch - Stampin' Up! do make so many fabulous co-ordinating products!!

This is the matching gift box we made, using the Sizzix Top Note die.  The top and bottom pieces are cut from Crumb Cake card then embossed using the Square Lattice embossing folder. More Fun Flowers were layered up with a button tied with some linen thread.

This is a lovely box to make, not only is it easy to put together but it is a decent size and could be used for so many different gifts.

My post is a little later than I had planned as Lucy has chicken pox now!!  At least its not all bad - as we go to Disnyland Paris soon, I'm thankful that both of them will have recovered from it before we fly.  Philip didn't get too many spots, so I'm hoping Lucy is lucky too - not too many today!!!??
