Use Your Stash Card Class Update

Thank you to the ladies who attended my "Use Your Stash" Card Class on Saturday at Scrap-n-Crop. I enjoyed it and I hope you did too and got something useful out of it! Good luck using your stash hehee :-)
Samuel was a little darling. I feed him before class started and then he was in the classroom with me for a bit in his bouncer. He filled his nappy and got a bit hot, but didn't complain at all :-) Then Val's Mum came and collected him and when I popped downstairs a bit later to check on him this is what I found :-)

Look at the little darlings all fast asleep :-) Val's kids (Bryant & Becks) were having a snooze too.
Oh he is such a good little guy ... I really do love him :-)
Anyway ... back to cards. I promised the ladies that I would post pictures of all the cards I made from two kits on my blog ... sorry for the card overload! I made 24 cards (well actually the kit had more patterned paper in it than we originally planned, so you could get this amount of cards from one kit plus an extra 3 pieces of cardstock). :-)
Here's the 7 cards I'd hoped to get through during class (we managed 5 and a bit I think!).

The four cards using pieces from one sheet of cardstock.

Other samples of the one piece of cardstock idea.
Same again.
Same again.
Two samples using the Tattered Florals die :-)
And the inside.
Doing a bit of dimension ...
5 flowers in total.
Tag Pockets - 3 samples
Showing the green tag
Blue tag
Pink tag
And various other cards made with left overs from the kit. These two were standard size cards (base cardstock measures 21x15 cm).
Small cards.
Standard size cards
Small cards.
Standard size card - I do love circles. This is such an easy-peasy way to use up scraps :-)

And these remaining cards I made as samples during the class.

Love this one ... flying off into the sunset (or away from it ... whatever way you want!) :-)
So that's it. That would be enough wouldn't it! ;-)
Thanks for visiting.

I loved the cards overloaded!! haha! And I had enjoyed your class!! That was my 2nd workshop and it's amazing what you can do with bits of leftover scraps. And how you make the most of out the patterned papers! I was so looking forward to giving my kids the cards that we made there. Unfortunately I left the workshop kit at Scrap-n-crop store cos I left with my hands full with a bounty of another 3 paperbags of newly purchased scrapbooking stuff and forgot about my own bag! *duh**
Looking forward to learning more from you from your blog! You have a great day now, Rachel!
