In case the lack of posts does not speak for itself, I have slowed down a bit on the crafting front lately. There are a couple of reasons, one is that I seem to be lacking in the mojo department. Another is that life is crazy and the last reason is that I am in the midst of preparing to go back to study teaching. Next year I will be studying full time but I start part time in about 2 weeks. I am looking forward to it but I am a bit scared too!
Anyway, I have also slowed down my classes to one per month, which is working out great. This month we made a bunch of Christmas cards, which is always fun! Here is what we made:
You may have seen this one before, I made it a little while ago, hard to see but it is teal & white (yay! used up the last of my taken with teal card stock, make way for the new gorgeous colours!)
This one is using the gorgeous Contempo Christmas set that is due for release just a few more days .This one was terrible to photograph because it has a vellum overlay to soften the colours. Sorry, but I just couldn't manage any better, but at least you get the idea (I got the idea originally from a newsletter sent from Marelle Taylor) We used the ever versatile Seasons of Joy set, and my favourite tool - the SPRITZER! LOVE IT! I also managed to used up almost all of my ballet blue card stock too! Yippee!
And this last one is an easel card. The idea came from a birthday card sent to me by Alison Wade, and changed up the colours and stamps and viola' a snazzy Christmas design. We used razzleberry, pale plum and white with a combination to Tree Trimmings (which is returning to the catalogue), Winter Post & Snow Swirled.
