A Crafting Weekend

I had such a wonderful weekend! I was able to do 2 of my favorite things 2 days in a row…hang out with friends and craft.  I didn’t even have to cook! I went out to dinner on Saturday and my wonderful husband cooked dinner on Sunday while I was getting together with C3 (Creative Card Club).  Each month I meet with these talented ladies and we share ideas, techniques, and projects we’ve created and then we make each others projects.  I shared a variation of a card I posted previously with the triple bow.  I brought lots of ribbon so they could choose what they wanted to make a bow to match their card. We used 2 of the Sale-A-Bration items, Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper and the new Glimmer Paper, to make these cards. img_0261

You can click HERE to see the original post with directions how to make the card and bow. This is one of those “formula” cards you could use again and again with different sentiments and colors.  I like black & white with a pop of color!  Here’s a photo of the ladies with their finished cards.

I love how they used their leftover scraps of glimmer paper to add a strip to their envelope. Don’t these look so bright and springlike?

Colleen shared a card using a quilt design. Here’a a picture of her with her card.

I wish I had taken another group picture of everyone’s cards as they all looked different because we used different designer series paper.  When you start with a neutral base you can do so many color combinations!

Marissa had us heat embossing and water coloring with blender pens, ink, colored pencils and aqua painters.  Here’s her card. Perfect for any occasion!

I totally messed up as I don’t have a photo of Margie with her card! I’ll make sure to catch her next time!

Susan and I took a road trip on Saturday to beautiful Virginia!  We enjoyed some crafting and catching up with a fellow demonstrator, Sharon Cline, and learned to make a “bendy card”.  This 3D card is not a quick & easy style card to make.  I’m not sure if I’ll ever make another one but it was definitely a fun day!

  1. Hi Jeanie, What great cards. Looks like you had a lot of fun. So nice to have crafting friends. I am making a promise if/when we get this blizzard tomorrow, I am doing nothing but crafting. I have read schools on Long Island will not be open. So if they get a day off, I am giving myself a day off too. People who work from home seem to always be working. I especially like the quilted/pinwheel card layout.
    Happy Monday!
    🙂

  2. Color me green, your choice from mint macaron to emerald envy to old olive, I am just plain envious and jealous of your weekend! It sounded like so much fun from shopping to card making let alone hubbie making dinner. Of course, Mike would have to make ribs or brisket and I am so tired of all those! But, anyway I think you deserve to have a good time. All the cards are so pretty. So you want to make that quilted windmill one with directions so I don’t have to look for them? I have always loved those but I don’t think I ever made one. Or, point me to someone who has the directions or video. I think I will skip the bendy card if you don’t think you will make another and it wasn’t quick and easy – it has to be a pain! Have a great week and you will be rewarded with your daughter’s visit!
