Kids classes

Do your kids love craft but you don’t want to do it with them or don’t have the skills? Come along to my weekly or monthly kids classes.

Another card from the class. This was made by a 7 year old.

Please stay tuned for my video on how to make these cards using the masking technique we used in the class.

If you would like any information on kids classes or adult classes please contact me. I’m always happy to answer any of your questions.

Happy crafting.

Flower shop

If you love a versatile stamp set and, sigh, a co-ordinating punch then Flower Shop is for you. It is amazing. I had to tell my ladies in my card class that I promised I wouldn’t use it again for a while because I was over-using it a lot.

This card was made by kids in my kids class. So easy. So beautiful.

I just like the versatility of this set. Here is a card my daughter, 7, made for her friend. It is easy enough for a 7 year old to use and to use so it looks good.

I made this card for the neighbours who saved 3 of our chickens from being eaten by the other neighbour’s dog.

sympathy card (1)

This uses the fern from the Papaya Collage set. I like the subtle and detailed look this gives in the background. The punched flowers have been heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

This card is my favourite.

I made for my Oma, Grandma, when my Opa died. She couldn’t believe that I’d made it. She was so chuffed that I’d sent her a card because people don’t do that these days. Why don’t people send condolence cards? Cards are a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them. It doesn’t even have to be for any reason. Just a card to say, ‘Hi, I’m thinking of you.’ It would make someone’s day. Maybe you should send someone a card this week.

Kids classes

I have been thoroughly enjoying teaching my kids craft classes and due to their popularity and the frequent requests I am starting weekly kids classes next term.

Last month we focused on Father’s Day and the children got to make one of two cards for their Dads. One group also got to make decorated gift boxes for their Dads.
I’m not sure who had more fun, me or the kids.
This card was quite easy to make. It uses the mosaic madness stamp set and matching punch and lovely mosaic embossing folder.

Here is the decorated gift box. Easy and filled with chocolates for Dad.
