Last night I went along to the WI meeting in Camberley to do a demo for some of the ladies. I'd had the date in my diary for a few months, but only designed the card at the weekend following final confirmation of the event.
My crafty friend Amy who is also a demonstrator was planning to come along for support but she wasn't able to make it in the end. Fortunately a couple of other demonstrators were there, Diane and Pip; and it was just as well as we were kept busy throughout the evening :).
It was lovely to meet so many new people, and I do hope that some will be attending my future classes etc soon.
Here is the card that I created for the evening:
The card base in Soft Suede and I have then matted a panel of Old Olive card with a piece of one of the papers from the Cheerful Treat Designer Series Paper pack on page 9 of the main catalogue. These papers are only available with 'hostess' pounds so why not book a party, get some friends together and take advantage of the other offers on throughout July.
I have added a strip of Old Olive/Soft Suede across the card and fixed this at either end to create a band to hold the bookmark, and then added a sentiment "to someone who makes others so happy!" punched out of Very Vanilla card with the Curly Label punch.
The ladies got a chance to make the bookmark for themselves to take home.
Can you see how it's a little tree with a owl in it ;)?! The strip of Soft Suede has been stamped with the Woodgrain stamp in Chocolate Chip ink and then I have attached a Old Olive Scalloped Circle on one end. The little owl comes from the Fox and Friends stamp set, inked in Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla and then punched out with a 1 3/8 inch Circle punch.
It was lovely to meet so many ladies and so local to me...
