A lovely evening of creativity – feel free to join in.

By | 22nd January 2017

Hello everyone, I had a lovely evening of creativity on Friday night with three talented ladies. We made a Mini Album and a Valentines card. The Mini Album requires scoring and folding and is made by adhering three folded pieces of 8″ x 8″ cardstock together to make a long length of card. The triangles made by the folds are covered using your choice of Designer Series Paper (DSP), the squares are covered using a complimentary piece of cardstock and can then be used as a place for photos. The covers at each end are pieces of chipboard covered with DSP.

We were joined by a talented young man towards the end of the evening and he quickly got the hang of using die cuts and made his own Valentines card.

Today I went to a Stamping’ Up! Training day where there was more creativity. I belong to a group called the Stampin’ Stars and our esteemed leader Natalie gets us together for a day every quarter. We made some great cards using the same set that IĀ used for the Valentines card, this time making non Valentine cards to show how versatile our stamp sets are.

We also ‘swap’ cards, we each make a card, enough for everyone there and then we ‘swap’. Its a great way to see how other people use stamps and accessories, and learn new techniques. When I have photographed them all I will share them with you. It is truly amazing how a group of people can have exactly the same tools, colour of inks, yardstick and stamp sets and end up with such a variety of style – thats what creativity is all about.

Keep crafting and being creative,

Fiona
