Good Evening All
Well we had a fantastic craft class this morning, many belly laughs had and at least two people went home with sore sides from that much laughing, what can I say it's a great way to spend 2 hours on a Saturday morning.
We made a card and a bookmark, everything was going to plan with the card, everyone worked well minus a few wonky pricked lines (which can always be covered up if necessary - no mistakes in crafting, only solutions to accidental mishaps). Then we moved on to the bookmark, well...........this is where all the problems began and ended. I decided to use an alphabet set from my stash but as with all alphabet sets, there are not enough vowles to go around. Perhaps if I'd suggested the stamp-a-ma-jig everything would have gone to plan, saying that though we were using versamark ink which is "invisible" so maybe not. We got there in the end though and everyones bookmarks looked lovely, each and every one was different it has to be said.
At this point I suggested a techniques class to which everyone agreed but also agreed that they would probably forget the technique by the time they next came to use it if we did not actually create with it in the same class as it was learned.
Take a look at what we created and let me know what you think.
