Day four of Wild Card Class....on Sunday (day 7?)

Well, got behind a bit- work- the weekend etc got in the way and I was determined to perfect the fantastic water shaker card! The first few went very wrong- but I've cracked it (I hope) and here they are....I'm SUPER impressed with this technique and will be doing loads more now that I have my leakage problem under control ;)

I kept going and made a 'plain' old shaker card also an achievement for me, my friends know that I don't measure....this makes these sorts of cards challenging! LOL!
Thanks for looking- and if a tutor sees this- thanks a mill for the class- it was fun to be poked into doing a bit for a change. I wish there was another week to go, although it will probably take me that long to get caught up on day 5.............. I will do it...................

Day three of Wild Cards card class

Day three brings pop-ups! Went with a Christmas theme this time. This card was tricky to photograph but it's a pile of Christmas presents and two deer. I like this card but it's very bulky to close.

Wild card class day two-Movement. Magic slide card

My first attempt at a magic slide card, inspired by a movement class taught by Kristina Werner. I hope Mum doesn't see this post before her birthday!
On the left, the card is 'closed' and on the right, I have pulled the tab across to reveal the inside of the card.

Wild Card Class from

Hahahaha! I can't believe how long it's been since I've blogged.... too busy project life-ing I guess!
So I started an online card class yesterday called wild cards from
I just needed something to get me going again in the cards/crafting department. So take a breath and get inky! :)
This card is a shaped card from day one.

Well, in my defence it's been an incredibly busy and difficult year's been incredibly difficult and busy for a few years now.......I think maybe we all deserve a break so that we can gather our thought, take a deep breath and look at life from outside hospitals and such?

Anyway, have started documenting 2013 in a scrapbook, yes! you heard it right, I have committed to a whole years worth of documentation-week by week. So far so good ;)
My good friend Kate is to blame or thank, depending on the mood, for this rash decision! And introduced me to Project Life (check it out) but I won't be held accountable should you become hooked.

Anyway, really enjoying it, we're halfway through March and I'm still up to date, up to speed and full of enthusiasm for MY project life :) I have a feeling that I may need a new book every year and keep it up!

So, I took a couple of pics of a couple of pages and here they are in their out of focus glory Oooops!

And here we are again. It barely feels like five minutes since the Christmas festivities began and it's suddenly Valentine's day! I made this card for my darling, it was a quick one, only taking two weeks but it was worth the effort I'm sure you'll agree LOL! I love this one and think that I'll adapt it to make pretty birthday cards too. As the pupsters get older I'm sure I'll manage to get a little more uninterrupted time to craft- no giggling Kate!

 Here are a couple of pics of the offending puppies.... They're just darling and we rescued them from the pound just before Christmas. They're hard work but worth it :) ask me again in 6 months time!

Ah, before I forget, here are the bits that the kiddies made for their parents for Valentine's!
They made a suncatcher decoration from card with a layer of sticky plastic in the middle, which sandwiched tissue paper, glitter and other bits they liked. They added some beads to the string and voila! Very pretty :)
They also made a butterfly Valentine's card for their Mums and Dads. They traced the shape, cut it out, decorated with whatever they liked, did a bit of stamping (the kids just love to stamp!)  and then attached a packet of lovehearts to the middle for the body of the butterfly. They were delighted with their creations but not so happy when they realised that they wouldn't get to eat the sweeties! hehehe. Never mind, I'm not entirely evil and spent two days making little bags for the kiddies which I filled with little packets of lovehearts for themselves. Phew!
Right! Off have a lazy movie day with hubbie!
