A card and a gift..

Good afternoon all, and thanks for looking in...

I am just home after workshop day at CJ Cardcraft in Edgeley...and once again thanks all for a lovely time...

I promised Susan that I would do a blog post so here I am ...just in ...coat off , kettle on and iPad at the ready...

Today we made a card and a gift, you see I feel that it is great to make something other than just cards every once in a while...

I wanted a vintage feel for both so we did some distressing...and used muted colours.

I do love this sketched lady stamp...one of my all time favourites...

For the gift I wanted to make something a bit different ...so at 2am when my mind does its creative bit , I came up with this Post it note cover....

Let's face it we all use post it notes...and these can be personalised, especially with the alphabet stamps.

These will make great little presents too...

Here are some of the crafters makes....

I always mean to take more photographs....but once I get talking ...I just forget...so please forgive me to those who work I haven't captured.

All the stamps are from Clarity and can be found on the website...

I am off now to empty my craft bags....enjoy your Saturday evening...( remember Paul is on HOCHANDA tomorrow )

Much love and hugs...

Jo. Xxx

  1. Great class Jo. The card and Post It book were both fun to make. Haven't done vintage distress in such a long time. It was nice to revise it. My brown distress inks had begun to gather dust at home lol.
