Paper Crafting Classes

Today’s post features my three paper crafting classes in January, where participants made three projects and played with various techniques! These were especially fun events because one of the projects really lent itself to making it your own. It was amazing to see everyone’s creations!

On the Brusho project, in particular, no two people did exactly the same thing, and that was a great treat to see.

Here’s Dean with one of her Brusho projects.

Club members have the option to make one or two of each project. Most of my regulars make two of each.

Just ahead you’ll see one of my original designs for this project.

I had several images set up on a few Stamparatus’s so people had choices for how they made their card(s). They could stamp repeating images as I did below, with my Hummingbird (or the flower), or they could stamp the Hummingbird and the flower image together as you can see Dean is doing above and in the sample just after mine.

This is Tessie’s card just below. She used some of the paint palettes made with the Brusho to watercolor the images on her card.

Meet Wanda and Stephanie! They are both regulars to my events.

On Stephanie’s card below she reoriented her card and stamped just the one image. For this card, she simply stamped, sprinkled and sprayed to get this fun look.

The Stamparatus was set up with this flower image as well. The version I made with this flower uses the repeat stamping method and the hinge step. Check out my Video tutorial by clicking HERE to see some of the focal pieces I made in the video and how to get various effects using Brusho.

The pig from the “This Little Piggy” stamp set was one of the other images set up on a Stamparatus.

I chose to do repeat stamping and I used a color palette made with the red Brusho and an Aqua Painter, to color in my pigs. Click HERE to see my previous post where I described how I colored these three piggies.

These pigs ended up being the inspiration for about five different versions of this card.

Jennifer, who you’ll see in a photo below did something different with her pig card and several of us loved it so much that we had to create our own versions. I’ll be sharing Jennifer’s card and the four others that Jennifer inspired in a separate post coming soon!

These next two cards show the second make n’ take at my January 2019 paper crafting classes.

These use the Black Ice Technique on the colored Sale-A-Bration foil sheets. These are available as a free item with qualifying purchases during Sale-A-Bration (or while supplies last).

Foil embossing techniques are super fun, especially when using the colored foil sheets available FREE, during Sale-A-Bration this year! Check it out here!

Here’s Jennifer with her version of the card. I love that she reoriented to mix things up a bit!

The third make n’ take at this event was a Drapery Fold card.

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!
