The make and takes are by far the most fun, but often theere is just too much socialising going on to get them all finished in time ... but I did eventually! Here's the hello card.
The "hello" box, which you can make in any size or shape you like just by changing the measurements, has a hinged lid and would fit a small set of stamps, a piece of jewellery or chocolates in it, just as it is.The mini 6x6 scrapbook page: I have placed a photo of my daughter swimming at the rock pool at Terriga in it already... I tried to match the pink and green swimming costume to the rose red and old olive embellishments.We used our square scallop punches with the new retro wheel... they make good journalling boxes for the date and short descriptions on a scrapbook page.The stamping (below) was done in versamark for the Jj's and choc chip ink for the journey definition with a cute little flower overlapping the J.The final project was the "hello hearts" frame folding card... held closed with that gorgeous little miniature silver clip at the top... the ribbon is tangerine tango striped grosgrain held on with a mini glue dot.
There were so many awesome speakers and exciting demonstrations of cards and scrapbook pages done on stage... If you live on the Central Coast you can probably recognise Georgina (second from the left) and Linda (third from the right).
Just can't wait for Convention in May 2010, next year!
