Saturday Crafting

Afternoon all.
Just a quick post to show you what I got up to at the demo I went to yesterday at Burleydam Garden Center with Kaisercraft demonstrator Elizabeth Robinson. I also met up with one of my STAMPloration blog buddies Monika for a chat and quiche in the coffee shop.
We were introduced to the latest Kaisercraft releases and had a chance to play with some bits and bobs in the afternoon. We made a banner usiing only one sheet of 12x12 paper and whatever was floating around!


I stamped some butterflies from Kaisercraft on the scrap from cutting out the banners and showed the ladies how to make a flower without using a die ,cutting a spiral freehand then folding and curling to get the rose. I finished it off by adding a few die cuts and I 'borrowed' a little bit of bright pink chord from the lady sat next to me. I added some bling and used Copics to colour some of the white diecuts to match the DP, think it was Kaisercraft, Cherry Blossom Collection - Tranquil. Not much of it left! The large doily die cut was too large for the banner so I cut the middle away and stamped a sentiment then cut away the outer edge. I tried to use that but went for some MS punched lace instead.

I had a lovely time chatting away to the other ladies, hope to get back for another demo later in the year.
