July n Juice...

Kia ora koutou

Day One!  For a little while now, my love and I have been pondering the idea of doing the juice 'reboot' diet ...oh my gosh, I can tell you this - get ready to do a lot of wee's, lol.  The juice recipes are not bad, think I can handle it for awhile (I hope).  Will keep you updated, watch this space!

School holidays usually means I'm at home with the boys and sadly no card classes for two weeks.  During this time; I have been able to design and prepare cards for classes two weeks in advance, support an amazing friend Tammy with her wonderful donation of beautiful albums she made, we (a lucky group of us) were given the fantastic job of decorating the albums with gorgeous papers and embellishments also supplied by Tammy. I was able to bag and tag some crafting stuff  to sell in The Paper Peacock's Garage Sale, make a gift box set of cards to donate to the 'Make A Wish' raffle, make a gift box set of cards for a wonderful, amazing lady Maureen - her 60th birthday, and make a set of cards for The Paper Peacock shop - showcasing the beautiful Tilda 12x12 paper pack called 'Sewing Bird'.

Monday Class

Frames and Stamps

The black frame is made from folded card - I followed a tutorial in Splitcoast Stampers by Birgit Edblom, she makes amazing, beautiful cards; here is the link to her tutorial Simple Frame.  I altered the frame a little :)

Cut 1 at: 3" x 6" and 1 at: 3 1/2" x 6". The inside of your finished frame will measure 3"x 3"
Score both pieces 1/4" increments starting at: 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 4 1/2", 4 3/4", 5", 5 1/4" 

My Swap Card

Big Curly Hair Projects

Tilda - Sewing Bird

I made this set of pretty cards  and card gift box from the beautiful 12"x12" Tilda paper pack called Sewing Bird.  I will put up the tutorial for the card gift box on my next post.

Pion - Grandma's School Book

'One Page Wonder' - these five wonderful children images were on one 12"x12" sheet of the lovely Pion paper called Grandma's School Book.  I enhanced the images with a couple of stamps coloured in with markers and added the die-cut picket fence, beautiful wings embosslits butterfly and a little greeting sign hanging off the fence.

Side-step Easel Card

I used Pion paper - Grandma's School Book.  I will put up a tutorial in the next post :)
