Top Note Die Draws

Over at Crafters anonymous we have a Monday night online course wher we make something we havent seen with instructions given to us via the chat. This has some interesting results and makes one realise how important communication is. I have often quoted

“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”

I think of this so often when I am doing the online class and it makes me realise when teaching it is so important to be able to communicate so people underwstand what it is they need to do.

This Monday we made a top note die set of draws. I didn't quite get them how they were supposed to be but I loved the way they turned out and the person I gave them to will enjoy them as in each draw I put 3 jokes to make her laugh. I hope you enjoy looking at my little set of draws.
The cardstock is real red from SU and the rose is made from the owl punch and the 2 scallop punches.

A Mini Album with envelopes

Over at Crafters Anonymous we have Monday night classes, on line, learning all sorts of things. Last Monday we made a mini album with Julia Leece and here are my pics of what I made. This little Album will be entitled Me and Grandpa and I will be giving it to my DH for his birthday. How I decorated this album- Before putting the album together I decided I wanted to use the SU roller wheels and used a roller wheel baroque border with real red roller ink cartridge in. I used the rulers that you can get from SU to make sure the roll was nice and straight. I really like the way the roller wheel turned out. With the journaling I used the extra large round tab to cut a place in the top of the envelope and used a tab from the same punch to add to my journaling page to slide my page in and out.

Punch art Bunny

I saw this little bunny on something someone had made and just couldn't resist making one. She is made of a large circle and large and small oval punches. I have inked the edges of the pink. The pads I inked in early expresso and the ears I inked in Pretty in pink. The eyes and mouth are drawn on by me and the nose is a small circle. I do think she is very cute coming up to easter.
