Hi, again, my dear crafty friends.
I’m so sorry that I’m a little late catching up with you again. I’ve been busy setting up my Heartfelt Shop at last!
I’ve already sold quite a bit of the stock, so have to order some more to replace what has disappeared already. I set up a section to show the items that we used in the class that day. It meant those bits and pieces were easily seen. When anyone was interested in an item that we had used that could pick it up straight away. It proved to be a good move.
The card we made in our first class of the year was one I show you last time. It was the owl from The Sugar Hollow Collection, but a little bit smaller. Because it was smaller, we had to use a different oval. the one I showed you last time I used the Eyelet oval. This time I used the Eyelet Ovals and Basics Large.
We also used the Flowering Dogwood for the flowers and leaves. A little bit of 3D Gold Paint finished the cage off nicely. Of course, the whole card front and inside oval were covered in Crystal Clear. The flower petals were edged with Baby’s Breath Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. It looked SO pretty and sparkly!
I then set about making some roses (from the Classic Rose Collection), because I want to teach how to make them at our next classes on the 2nd and 3rd of March (You’ll be there, won’t you!?). I used the roses and dies from the collection, but also the new Classic Rose Mold from Heartfelt Creations. This mold takes half of the work out of shaping the flowers. Great!!! After I had made a few roses of different sizes I decided to do something different with them! I made them into a necklace! Have a look!
It looks SO pretty on! The petals have Glass Glitter (little shards) on them so they really sparkle! I wear it with the large rose at the bottom, slightly to the left, then the smaller ones come up the side.
We won’t make this at our next class, but we WILL make a card with roses!
Talk with you again very soon. bye for now.
