Oh look, it's a blog post! I know, I'm really bad at keeping this blog up to date, sorry!
I thought I'd pop this card on quickly. My boss at work has her 40th wedding anniversary his weekend, and we wanted to give her a little something to mark the event.
This is a simple 'joy' fold card, 4" square, using Kraft card (soon to be crumb cookie). The square in the centre is textured very vanilla layered on real red, then flowers punched out in real red and ruby red using the 5 petal flower and boho blossoms punches. Centres are the fire collection of rhinestone brads, then flowers fixed on with foam dimensionals and glue dots. Finally the 40 was hand drawn with a real red marker.
A very simple little card easily adapted to suit other anniversaries just by changing the colour of the flowers. Hope you like it!

Are you an enthusiastic crafter? Do you want to share your creativity with others? Ever dreamed of making an income from your hobby? As an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator you can do all of these things.
Cut a 50cm length of grosgrain and fold in half, with the two halves at right angles as above.
Don't worry if it slips out of your fingers as you fold. Once its completely folded, hold tightly to the ends and release, giving a twist as shown in the photo above.
You will end up with a beautiful rose on the end of a long tail of ribbon. You may need to untwist the rose a little to arrange the petals.
Secure the rose with a couple of stitches at the base of the flower, then trim the ends of the ribbon. Use the flower to decorate your projects as desired.

I've been making a lot of these ribbon flowers recently, so decided to write a quick tutorial. They are so simple to make!

Each class will include 4 cards and 2 card-pockets to fit into the journal. The journal itself will be made in a separate class, which will run in January, April, July and October. There is no obligation to attend a journal class, and the card classes will stand alone without the journal. All classes are limited to 8 attendees.
January's technique is spinner cards. Check out the Meetup gallery (under Year in Cards) to see examples. We will be making 2 x birthday cards and 2 x thank you cards.
To sign up for a class please visit the Meetup page
