Craft Day Project - Cards Galore!

Hello! One of the things Emma and I wanted to do with our recent Craft Day was to show people just how much you can make out of a given selection of materials. Everyone who attended the day was given an amazing Project Pack: half a pack of Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper, a large Simply Adorned Charm, a 61cm Simply Adorned Chain, two fabulous Trinket Keys, an entire roll of Victoria Crochet Trim Ribbon, half a pack of Basic Pearls, a couple of Sponge Daubers and a stack of co-ordinating cardstock, as well as the "Elementary Elegance" stamp set. You've already seen the Jewellery Inserts, the Jewellery Storage Folder and the Mini Scrapbook, so here's our last project: a whole range of cards.

We supplied instructions for the samples we'd made, and encouraged everyone to explore their own creativity and some up with their own designs from the products they had left. Here are just a few of the cards we made:

 Simple but stunning!

This paper is Soft Suede on Pink Pirouette, but somehow looks almost golden - really opulent.

The inside of the card..

LOVE this chicken paper!!!! There's matching fabric too, in the Beau Chateau fabric collection - gorgeous!

And you even get chicken wire!!!! When I first saw this paper I was a bit non-plussed, but after playing around with it for a while I loved all the possibilities...

This is one of my favourites. Top Note die, Square Lattice embossing folder and a couple of punches.

Really elegant, an understated embossed frame and teeny-tiny pearls.

Even after making all these, we still had loads of the Project Pack left over. I hope the ladies who joined us are having loads of fun making even more projects with the materials they took away with them - and of course, the fabulous stamp set they got will last them forever!

Next time, I'm hoping to show you some photos of the day itself, along with some of the little surprise gifts we gave to everyone who came along. We had such a fantastic time and I can't wait till the next Team Sunshine Craft Day - we'll let you know dates as soon as possible, but we're thinking some time towards the end of November or early December, for a Christmas-themed extravaganza. Watch this space, or sign up for my email newsletter to hear about it first (you can find the link in the sidebar).

Hope you like the projects! Thanks for visiting, and I'll be back soon.
