We had a fabulous day in March with the extravaganza featuring products from both the seasonal catalogue and Sale-a-bration free products (sadly sale-a-bration has ended for yet another year. The seasonal catalogue is still good till the end of June 2014. Really cool is that we get one of the samples to keep from each project.
There was a good assortment of projects, techniques and fun was had by everyone. See below for the projects
This card works like the iris of a camera – when closed you see the DSP but when you open the card the iris dilates to reveal a sentiment beneath. This card can be used for any occasion I first presented a xmas version at an event in Rotorua a couple of years ago
The next card was presented by Irene and Rayleen . Card in a box and is all the rage right now if you google it you see hundreds of ideas for this card.
Kristine and Kirstie made a mini wreath using the spiral flower die and crepe paper cut with the fringe scissors, both these items are in the Seasonal catalogue. I think this is really cute.
Andrea and Alicia created and presented how to make this really cool geometrical Box Card – I love the DSP used in this project and they also used the tag topper punches for inside and the belly band.
Lastly a fantastic masculine card was presented by Jacqui and Shona – using the hello sailor stamp set, the envelope pnch board and the world map stamp and my favourite of them all the hardwood stamp which is in the seasonal catalogue. You can even cut the planks on the hardwood stamp and create yourself a picket fence by shaping the top.. mmm so many ideas
Keep your date free for the 27th July as that will be our next extravaganza and will feature products from our new 2014/2015 idea catalogue,
The featured image is of a T shirt I created the image in MDS and printed it on a transfer that can be ironed on to the fabric. I was pretty chuffed with the finish. I also made a collage in MDS using a Punch and filling it with photos, mirroring the image and putting on to a canvas covered in a gel medium – you let it dry and then using a circular motion and water you rub the paper off leaving the image on the canvas – it was really cool.It is not 100 % but then as they say practice makes perfect. I also transferred the image on a singlet.
