Class of 2009

Hi again! I have been trying to finish this up for weeks!! Yep Weeks! I just haven't had any energy or drive to go sit down and get it done!! I saw the idea on a blog ages ago, and liked it (I can't remember where, but if it is yours please let me know and I will link) I have recently acquired several sets of Nestabilities! (Finally) and I loved the way they cut out the photos! and the edges are embossed too. This is also the second project I have made using the Bind It All, I still seem to be squashing my wires :-( if anyone knows how NOT to do this, some advice would be appreciated - I know I probably just need a bit more practice. So for now the ribbons hide the squished bits!! I was a bit worried about the ribbons, seeing its pictures of the boys...but Owen reckons its AWESOME!! So I suppose that's ok! Now I have to make another for my MIL, This one is for Nan.

Materials Used - Stampin Up! - Cardstock and Inks - Night of Navy, Real Red, Bashful Blue. Stamp Sets - Headline Alphabet (Retired), Tidy Alphabet (Retired), In the Stars. Accessories - Real Red, Black & Night of Navy - 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Bashful Blue Gingham Ribbon. Other - Nestabilities & Bind it All

Till Next Time...

Finally... The Faux Wood Class!!

Yay! We finally got there!! I have been attempting to do this class with my friends since August!! and yesterday we actually got to do it! I love the technique from SCS. Each month I give the ladies a Mojo Monday Sketch to challenge them, and a few commented that they had a hard time with Mojo Sketch 76, so I decided to design these two cards around this sketch. Plus it was requested to do Male Oriented Cards. So I have accomplished this with these!! The ladies picked up the technique just fine!! It's so easy!!
