February Flowers

Here is a sneak preview of what to expect at our February workshop this Wednesday. Our theme for the evening is paper flowers and we will be demonstrating four different techniques for creating your own paper flower embellishments - including quilling, using flower punches and a bit of paper folding and curling with Nestabilities scallop circles. So don't miss it!

Looking forward to taking lots more photos of your creations for the blog this time!

Possibilities with Nestabilities!

Well Wednesday saw our first workshop of 2010 and a chance to try out our recent club purchase – 4 sets of Nestabilities. And it looked like they went down a treat with some fantastic cards being made by you all. Unfortunately I got my camera out a little too late to capture many photos this time. (Please remind me at the next workshop!!) Anyway I managed a piccie of one of my demo cards and one of Karen’s – see below.

As promised here is the link to the layout pages on the Splitcoast Stampers forum for future reference:

Well done to those of you who have already completed your challenge for this month i.e. to look at the blog and leave a comment if you dare! Don’t forget to bring any suggestions of other links you would like to see on our blog to the next workshop or send us a message either via the blog or on email.
