This weeks card

Hi ladies, this week we are going to revisit a couple of old favourites, the easel card and the twisted easel card.

The photo is of the double twist but we will be starting with the normal easel as we have a couple of fairly new card makers with us. This is a great card to fancy up or just leave simple, it is also a great one for Christmas cards if you haven't got them all finished yet.

As normal I will bring the basic card stock but if you would like to bring something to decorate the card with please do.

Back again......

Ok ladies the summer is over and we are back to doing classes again. So here is this weeks card.

I have kept with the Christmas theme for this week, not sure if you would like to stop doing them soon and get back to normal cards, let me know on Monday.

For this card I have used a simple holly theme. As normal I will supply everything you need for this card but if you would like to do it in different colours please bring your own papers.

Supplies needed.

This weeks class

Hi ladies, just to let you know I am a bit late getting the sample card done this week (not sure where this week has gone) so I am going to show you the card from the Split coast stampers site where I got the instruction. It is called a centre step card. I should have the card done for Monday.

I also have some photos from the kids class to show you. As there was only 6 there this week I gave them the same challenge as I gave you and this is what they came up with.

And talking of chalenges don't forget the new Make my Monday site goes live this week, I will bring my card to show you all.

This weeks class

This weeks class is all about using sketches to help with your card making As you may remember I showed you a card I had done last week following the Make it Monday sketch.

For those of you that were not at class here it is.

I will be bringing a variety of sketches with me to class, also card, paper and stamps. As normal if you would like to bring your own things to do you are welcome to.

This weeks class

This weeks card is a step card with a iris fold in the front. It can be a bit fiddly but it is worth it.

I have done it in white but it can be done in any colour you like. As normal I will bring everything you need with me, but if you would like to do it in any other colour bring the papers with you.

For those of you who have managed to download and install Dropbox you will be able to see all the instruction in there. Also those of you who would like help with a blog can you be thinking of a name for it so I don't put you on the spot, you will also need a gmail account.

See you Monday

I will also bring the card I have done for the Monday challenge blog I told you about.

New Challenge Blog

Just to let all you ladies know that I have just added a new challenge  blog to the list on the right. It has been set up by Jacqueline from deezines art, a blog I follow all the time. All you will have to do is follow the design, choose your own colours and stamps and away you go, then post a photo of your card on to your blog. But I don't have a blog I can hear most of you crying, so WHY NOT? most of you are good enough to put your work out there for others to see and comment on. How will you know how good you are getting if you do not have a record of where you have come from.

Jacqueline has just started to design her own stamps but also uses a lot of Stamping Up and other brands on her cards, if you have a look back at some of the older posts I think you will recognise some of the stamps. She is also the person who gave us the Easel card box design we did in the new year.

I hope you will all at least go and have a look at this new site and have a go at the first card she has there even if you don't go for the design team.

I will be bringing my computer with me on Monday so if any of you would like me to help them set up there own blog I will show you how.

This weeks card will be here in a day or so.

This weeks card and an apology.

I am so sorry but this week we will not be doing Iris folding as planned as I lost the book and have only just (today) found it again. The card we will be doing is a side step card. I was planning on doing the handbag iris fold that goes with this card so this will be a practice run for next week when I will have all the copying done and everything ready.....

Here is a photo of this card when we did it at Christmas.

Hope this is ok with everyone.
