Exploding thanks!

I recently had to make a few thank you cards and I stumbled across this idea of an exploding card, using the Simply Scored Board made it so simple!

A card measuring 8x8" was scored at 4" both vertically and horizontally and then using the diagonal plate I scored from one corner to the other. This card base was then folded along the score lines as seen in the following picture.

A simple belly band made with ribbon and secured with a layered Mixed Bunch punched flower finished it off.

Mixed bunch class

Sorry, I'm a bit late in posting the results of my class on Wednesday!  Icve just had one of those busy weeks, lots of cards to show you. I'll have to do a post a day until I catch up with myself.
So, as promised, here are the cards from my coffee and card morning.

All made with the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and co-ordinating punch, I do love punches!

Summer Mini Catalogue Launch

Yesterday morning I held my Summer Mini Catalogue Launch. The planning that goes into these events is quiet intensive, the make and takes, the goodie bags, displays and samples and demonstrations but it is all worth it when you see people enjoying themselves, chatting, laughing and crafting away. I love it, especially when they put their own twist on the cards. 

I really enjoyed myself and hope my ladies did too. It wont be long before I organise another event like this.

Not the best of photos, i had to use my phone as our camera is playing up, but it's not too bad! I tried to show all of the stamp sets, either on the display table or in the make and takes.

A smile is good enough for me!
happy crafting everyone
