A couple of weeks ago my friends and upline Valerie and I held our first face to face papercrafting class since the pandemic began. It was SO nice to be able to actually craft in person with friends and team mates once again.
All of our projects featured the Gingerbread & Peppermint suite of products. The first card we made used only the designer series paper pack and a bit of fussy cutting to create something like this…
The Christmas ‘cookies’ were fussy cut from designs in the pack and the little sweeties were cut with a 1/2″ circle punch. Some were popped up with dimensionals and everyone could add a sentiment of their choice. I used ‘Tis The Season from Christmas To Remember with Real Red ink and fussy cut that too.
We also used the awesome Memories & More cards from the suite during the class along with their coordinating card bases and envelopes. Here are 2 of the cards I made on the night…
The one on the left uses one of the pre prepared card bases and 4 of the Memories & More cards plus a fussy cut cookie and a bow using real red sheer ribbon. I used one of the stickers from the Memories & More cards for the sentiment on the card on the right.
My point was to illustrate that you can make great cards using just the DSP but when you add in the Memories & More cards the possibilities seem endless!
We had so much fun and can’t wait for the next one where we’ll be using the Painted Christmas suite. If you live near Midlothian, Scotland why not join us? Use the contact form to get in touch for all the details.
