Last weekend's Crop for Kids was so much fun ... two days of scrapbooking, card making, classes and socializing with friends just can't be beat! I managed to complete 7 scrapbook pages which I will post later this week hopefully. First, though, I wanted to share the cards that I made in the "Not So Secret Garden" class. The cards worked out well, but what really impresses me the most is how simple the techniques are - I never would have guessed. I am so happy that I took this class (even if it was an 8:30am start-time). Check out more of Jo's ideas in her blog - http://mypaperplayhouse.blogspot.com/
Paper & Ribbon Flower
This first flower is made of strips of patterned paper and ribbon simply folded over and glued. So simple! Jacqui adapted hers by cutting the loops and I might try cutting the loops myself, but using a patterned scissor.
Tissue Paper Flower
This flower is very striking (although it certainly won't be a card that can be mailed). It was created with roughly cut circles of tissue paper that was then crumpled and spritzed with glimmer mist.
The flower on the left-side is the one I will most likely never make again. It is a great design that involved taking scalloped circles, folding them into eighths, then cutting and shaping the "petals". The reason I won't do it again is that I found it really hard not to keep cutting at the petals trying to make them just perfect. I stopped in time but doubt I could do it again.
Die Cut Sewing Tissue Flower
The second flower was lots of fun to make. It consists of sewing tissue paper and patterned paper cut flowers which were scrumpled and then sprayed with glimmer mist.
This "lollipop" card is probably my favorite. It was created with nothing more difficult than roughly cut circles of different papers and tulle which are connected with a coloured brad.
