We have just had a full day crafting – isn’t that every crafter’s idea of a perfect day? Several hours amongst friends playing with stamps and inks!

We were not told what we would be doing during the two sessions but were advised what to bring along to work with. That’s always tricky – I never have the right stamps/inks with me!  😉  Still, like stamp club, it’s showing a technique which we can take away and replicate using different images and colours etc…. a prototype. Actually, I was delighted with both items and don’t need to hide them away in shame – they both turned out great and I’m full of ideas for different themes now.

The morning was spent with Gloria teaching one half of the group to make a CD Case Calendar. It involves, not unexpectedly, an empty cd case (the clear type) with all the black innards removed. Twelve squares of card were decorated to depict each month by adding colour, images etc. The calendar pages themselves were also lightly coloured so they didn’t ‘shout’ at you (being too white!).  I added some beads and glitter (yuck – I hate glitter!!!) when I got home and may add a few more snaps/brads. These can’t be too thick or they won’t sit nicely in the front of the cd case.

I’ve added some more photos taken on the day below, choose to view individual shots or as a slideshow if you wish (or use piclens if you can, it’s sooooo much fun!). If you choose to view as a slideshow then you can see them full screen size by clicking the bottom right-hand button.

By the way, if you recognise your work and would like me to add your name then just let me know and I’ll fix it.
