Wheely Good Weekend

Hi there!

Just had a fantastic class using Stampin' Around wheels.  We looked at three different techniques, general rolling, making backgrounds and mitred cornering.  We used a selection of different wheels to see the different effects you can get when creating backgrounds.


The butterflies are glittered - not sure if you can see it too well on the photo.  I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align the plain butterfly and butterfly flower images, then put dots of Tombow glue on the tiny flowers and sprinkled glitter on the glue dots for a bit of bling.

Recipe;
Cardstock - Chocoloate Chip, Whisper White
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Bashfull Blue
Stamp set - Flight of the Butterfly
Stampin' Around Wheels - Forever Flowers, Leaves A La Carte
Punches - Eyelett Border, Butterfly Punch
Accessories -, Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Dazzling Diamonds & Light Blue Fine Cosmo Glitter
Non SU - die cut oval for top of tissue box

Here are my brilliant crafting buddies - Abby, Kim, Anne & Jean.  Thank you ladies for a fantastic morning, I loved every minute - hope you had a good time too!!!



Its the first time I have used this venue and was a little worried, but there was no need - its fab.  I have booked the next two months classes and I am also thinking of starting a monthly crop - so if you are interested in joining, please email me and I will start the ball rolling.

Hope you have a lovely weekend in the sunshine!
Thanks
