Make a Difference

This class is called "Make a Card, Make a Difference" because profits from the class are given to my lovely friend Kimberly for her Charity "Devotion Africa" which supports vulnerable children in Kenya.  This class has been running for a while and we now have two classes that are "devoted" to the kids.  It's nice to think that although we are crafting for ourselves, we are at the same time helping children to get an education which will make a huge difference to their lives.

This month's Wednesday Class created a matching card and box using one of my favourite stamp sets "Everything Eleanor".  This box was based on the design from my Big Shot Class held last week and I love how one idea can evolve straight into another!

Don't you love the Vintage Tag, rust is included by the way!  Again more use of the Simply Scored Tool which I have so many uses for, not just to create the box itself but the lovely rosette that adornes the front.

The ribbon at the top is from the promotion this month, gorgeous organza in Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral, spend £45 and get a ribbon and brad pack worth £15.95 for free, the flower brad in the centre of the  butterfly is from that pack.  The ribbon looks clear but don't fall off your chair, the sun was actually shining when I took the picture so it's really Lucky Limeade!!

The rosette is made using the Everyday Enchantment papers which are available during July only, while stocks last!

Next we made a card to go with the bag, using the same colours, how can you not love this stamp set, it's just so feminine and I have used it so much, makes beautiful wedding cards too!

Here are both projects together

along with the table gift I made for everyone

If you would like to come along to the next class at Quedgeley, we will be meeting on Thursday 2nd August at 10am, all you need to bring is some glue and a pair of scissors!
