Hello! Today is a beautiful day in Bunbury. We’re getting some lovely ‘Spring’ type weather (even though it’s Autumn). A pleasant 28 degrees, sun is shining – oh and the kidlets are NOT HERE!!! The big one is at day care and the little one is spending quality time with Nanna and Grandad. Woo hoo!!! I love them dearly, but am a much better Mummy for having time away. So, today I am writing a blog post for you, making birthday cards for some lovely friends and treating myself to lunch at a local café by the water. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Last night some of my wonderful customers joined me for a Card in a Box workshop. We used the tutorial available on Stamping T’s website which provides all the measurements needed to make a Card in a Box that fits into a C6 (standard) envelope when flat. I was so impressed by the creativity of Anne, Gayle, Glenda, Cate & Sheila. I guided them through making the box base, but after that, it was up to them. We had flowers, mosaics, cupcakes, bikes, and everyone took home a great unique design. I should have taken some photos, but got caught up in the process and it was home time before I knew it.
These were my samples for inspiration. I had such fun making them. You can see how they become addictive. Like so many things in life, the first one I ever made took me ages, but with some practice, you become quite quick at filling the box up. Kelly x
