Cardmaking Class

I haven't made cards for years although I do have lots of materials. So when a free class was offered at Sunriver I went. It was so fun to be creative in a new way other than writing.

I remember now why I enjoy scrapbooking and designing my layouts-it's very artsy. So I took some class photos and made three cards for future uses. Will return next week and make more.

Everyone made their own design with materials that were provided and no two were alike.

Great instructors who showed us some fundamentals, gathered materials and let us loose.

Here's the three cards I made with decorated envelopes to match. They are on right, top row.

Right now my daughter is coloring a birthday card for her friend in school.It's very sad that with ecards and emails , paper /post cards are going out of use.I love the cards i receive by post,they are much more personal.

Looks like you had loads of fun joining this class.The cards look beautiful.

I haven't ever made cards like these, with stamps and stencils and paper punches, but I have received some beautiful ones. Glad you had fun.

Ahh yes, scrapbooking and card making, I remember it well. That's another hobby I passed through. It was fun but I don't have space for everything. Have fun next week.

I love your cards. We have a friend who actually went into business with her cards after she retired as a teacher....

I've done this! It was fun and I loved that I left with cards that I had made. From that point on, I truly appreciated hand crafted cards in a whole new light!!
