Make a Card Monday!

Don't forget that we are still hosting Make A Card Mondays!  Contrary to what we thought, which was that we would have to put a halt to these Monday meetings for the summer, we are continuing with the fun!  The good news is that we will continue to have these Monday morning sessions -- so if you want a morning of fun and crafting, do try to stop in at the market to join us.  Every Monday morning from 10:30 - 12:30, join us in the atrium of the Kids Market for some creative fun.  For just $2, you can create a card -- each Monday will feature a different card, so come every Monday if you can!

Below is a sneek peak of what we will be creating this Monday, July 30.

Card of the Week

New babies are always a special occasion and we've created a special card to help celebrate.   We started with a cream card and add a baby blue mat.  Then embossed the Cuttlebug Moroccan Screen on to cream card and highlighted it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The next step is to use Spellbinders Labels 19 to cut a cream layer large enough to stamp the Memory Box Sock Monkey on. Colour the monkey, we used blues and greys.  Then use the largest Spellbinder from the set to cut out a baby blue label to mount the sock monkey on with foam tape. Cut Memory Box Charlotte Boarder die from cream card stock and embellish with pearls. Assemble layers and add bow as shown.

Card of the Week

 Poppies are in season! There is nothing quite like them and I'm lucky enough to to pass a field of them on my walk to work. So, a little inspiration...

peel offs, copics and a little perspiration...

CAS (clean and simple). I tried to embellish with ribbon, pearls and peel offs but I liked it best this way.
