So, over at The Shabby Tea Rooms this week the theme is Love is In the Air and this gorgeous photo is posted for inspiration:
I am really enjoying getting back into card making again and it's becoming infectious at work. At lunchtimes on a Tuesday, we've been having a bit of a Technique Tuesday session at work. One of my colleagues has become interested in crafting and wanted to see the Big Shot demo'd, and I happily obliged. The following week we had a short stamping session, I also demo'd Shrink Plastic one week, and this week I put together a small kit to make a tag - the technique was Heat Embossing and we had just 20 minutes to produce this very simple tag:
Unfortunately, I didn't heat set the sentiment at the bottom of the tag properly and some of it rubbed away so I used a bit of initiative and stamped it again onto a seperate piece of cardstock and using the pinking shears
I cut it out and stuck it over. Job done! The best part about this though is all the Oooh's and Aaah's and excitement you get from non/brand new crafters as they see their projects come together, and as they watch the embossing powder melting, they think I'm some kind of alchemist!! LOL!!
Well that's my lot for today. I have some prep work to do for next Tuesday's session. Hope to be able to show you something tasty next week! Have a good weekend all, and wrap up warm! Thanks for stopping by! :o) xx
