Today I’d like to share the work of 3 of my customers. They spent the day at our Paper Picnic on Saturday making cards. I was so impressed I just had to share with you all.
These Christmas cards were created by Sue Kennedy using her trusty Cricut and lots of Glitter Paper. I love the simplicity of the cards – letting the shimmery goodness of the paper do all the work. One technique Sue tried was stamping in Black Archival Ink onto the Glitter Paper – doesn’t it look great? Glitter Paper is available in packs of 3. Each pack features 3 shades of a colour. Choose from Teal (Z1991), Purple (Z1992), Pink (Z1922), Green (Z1847), Brown & Tan (Z1830) or Black & Grey (Z1829). Click here to see the range.
Bridget Jennings created these two cards using plain cardstock. I love the fact you don’t have to have lots of decorative supplies to make awesome cards. Once again, the shapes were mostly cut on the Cricut. Sue and Bridget were inspired by cards they found on Pinterest.
My final spotlight shines on Sonja Jennings. Sonja adapted a card I taught in November and she spent the day creating 38 invitations for her mum’s 80th birthday. She was a machine! I know her mum is going to be thrilled with them. Click here to learn how she created the stamped feature.
Paper Picnics run for 6 1/2 hours on a Saturday. My 2015 dates are Jan 17 & 31, Mar 7, May 16, Jun 20, Aug 22, Sep 19, Oct 24, Nov 21 and Dec 5. Paper Picnics are held in Duncraig, West Australia. You can bring along any project you are currently working on. I teach a couple of Scrapbook layouts and a card at each picnic. They are relaxed and full of fun.
