Acetate card

This is made from a piece of acetate 10" x 5" folded in half. Cut a piece of blue card 4.5" x 4.5" and stick to the inside back. Cut a piece of white card 4.5" x 4.5" and stick to the back this will cover a multitude of sins!!! Decorate with glitteration snowflakes. Don't forget to let some hang of the edge of the card. Finish off with a sentiment from the forever friends elements.

Well my holidays are over and what a fantastic time I had 12 night in Benalmadena Spain fantstic weather and a real change from Crete. We flew to Malaga from Bournemouth and stayed at friends apartments which was lovely.
I then went back to work for a week and then off again for a week caravanning in West Bay Dorset we were lucky with the weather and had a dry sunny week. I have lived in Poole all my life and never realised what lovely scenery we had on are door step. Burton Bradstock beach was lovely a bit windy but i sat and watched the waves which were fantastic.
So it's back to work now lots of new demos I hope lots of inspiration for all your card making and scrapbook.
There is a demo on in store tomorrow by Stabilo they are doing 50% off all they colouring products and these can be used with our stamped images. Will let you know more after my crash course tomorrow.
I will be doing a Stamping demo on Thursday 5pm-7.30pm ish do come along if you are having trouble as this is your chance to have a go.
On Saturday I will be doing card shapes so come along and learn how to do all those different folds that you have seen.
Thats all for now I will try and get back to regular blogging from now on.

Demo cards 11th july

Here are the photos of todays cards and boxes I will update the instructions over the next few days. Had a great day I hope all those ladies who popped along picked up an idea or two.

This little collection of cards are made using the new textured 4" square cards £2.99

Love the size of these cards as they are great for making those small gift cards.

They are also fantastic for water colouring as your colours blend better than on smooth card.

This great little side step card was shown to me by Chris and is proving to be very popular.

I decorated it with the die cut images.

These calendars were a hit small scraps of paper stuck to mount board with image water coloured on the top easy.

The calendar fobs were in the goody bag but you can buy them for 99p

Simple decorpage always look better in the flesh!

This card uses the masking technique first stamp the centre image and then mask it and stamp the other 2 decorpage the centre tree and edge with glitteration.

These next couple of cards I call scrap cards as they use up scraps of paper and a small image as a focal point.

This last card is stamped with 2 colours of chalk ink to create a border and then stamp 2 spares cut and shape and decorpage onto your card.
