Yet Another Fabulously Crafty Time

During my week off work I was lucky enough the be able to attend a few classes/workshops at the new Crafters Companion store in Evesham (which is only 5 minutes drive from my house!)

In one of the classes I attended we made a stunning card using the Centura Pear  Double sided A3 Decadence collection. I loved the card I made so much I had to bring a pack home with me.

I had a bit of a play this evening and made a few boxes this evening, the largest one measures 8 inches x 5 inches x 1.5 inches and the smallest one measures 5 inches x 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches. 

I have to say I absolutely love the double sided Centura Pearl "Decadence" card stock. Such a beautiful selection of designs that go perfectly with each other. The card stock is a dream to work with and scores/folds beautifully. Really think this collection would make a stunning selection of wedding favours!

A Fun Crafty Time

Just returned home from a fabulous class at the new Crafter's Companion store in Evesham. Today we used Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and Centura Pearl card stock with a hint of gold to create a background.I must say I was very impressed with how well the Oxides blended.

We then used a lovely Create A Card die to cut out the heart shape and flowers and then matted the background onto a white card blank using 36D adhesive foam tape and added small pearls to the centre of the flowers.

The original card had a lovely embossed background, but me wanting to be a little different added the "Warmest Wishes die cut sentiment when I got home. I really love this card and am tempted to buy a couple of these dies when I go back on Thursday.
