Hello everyone, and welcome to Annie who is a new follower this week.
I've been busy working on the wedding scrapbook and have managed to complete several layouts but there is a long way to go and I haven't had much time to follow the on line course I signed up for called 'A Cut Above'.
The first lessons are about using die cuts and have been very informative and I hope to be able to either make a new card for each lesson, or highlight a previously made card that uses the required technique because of time constraints.
Lesson 1 was simply to use die cuts on a card and I made a Welcome Home card for some friends who have just returned from a 3 month cruise. They were very sensible to go away for our winter and have returned just in time for all the spring colour. I had missed them and thought it was appropriate to hang the flags out so I made a springlike card to reflect this
I started by inking up a plain panel of card to make a background sky and grass, and then added a banner that I fussy cut and stamped with a sentiment before fixing it to a stamped cord. I die cut a birdhouse and some birds to sit on a garden gate and added a little foliage and and a couple of flowers.
All materials were from Papertrey Ink.
You may remember the bon voyage card I made for these friends when they set out on their cruise, using die cuts from my Silhouette Cameo.
Day 2 of the course was to use a die to make a window card and here is one I made a little while ago that fits the bill
I hope to catch up with the course, especially when it gets on to using the Silhouette cutter because I need lots of instruction to get to grips with that!
Thanks for stopping by.
