Holiday Line-Up Class

Last Tuesday I held a class using the fabulous Holiday Line-Up set and the current In-Colours. The girls made 3 set cards to start with and then I let them loose to re-create the cards in different colours, or use one of my other Holiday Line-Up cards as inspiration.

This is the only card of the 3 I haven't posted yet - so I thought I'd share it with you. I know we Aussies don't have the Top Note die in our catalogue, but I was lucky enough to have my hubby bring one home for me from The States. I gave each of my class participants a laminated template of the small and the large size so they could re-create these at home if they wished.

I also realised too late that I had ordered Real Red ribbon instead of Riding Hood Red. Not to worry - a quick lesson on how to get REALLY dirty hands by running white taffeta ribbon across an ink pad solved the problem. I was going to run the ribbon through again because there were some white streaks - especially along the edge - but decided I liked the look.

For those asking - the sewing is "progressing"!!! I need to get it done in the next week or so and then I'll see if I can get a decent picture to post for you - although not sure I'll have someone willing to model it! Hopefully I'll be back in full blogging swing soon - although the kids start holidays in a week.

Have a great weekend...

I was one of the fortunate ones to be in Debbie's class! It was great fun and I am thrilled with the beautiful cards I made. Debbie is such a wonderful teacher and very generous with her time, her talents and her SU supplies!

Hi Debbie... You are awesome! I just love this card. I'm a Holiday Line-up girl!! In my FAV's it goes for sure and I enjoy the CB swirl embossing too. And that TOP NOTE is perfect!!! That tool is also a FAV of mine, heck all SU! goodies are.. :)

I can't wait to see your sewing project! I know it takes lots of time and talent when sewing... my mom was big at it, but it never took to me! Just straight line sewing such as curtain panels, mending, etc. And on cards! LOL! Hugs.. have a super weekend! :)

How wonderful! These images are so wonderfully whimsical,they call for playful color variations, and you've nailed it over and over again! I love the way you used the Top Note die for the main image. I think you made a good decision leaving the white bits on the ribbon. It almost looks like velvet on screen.

I'm glad to hear the sewing is coming along because I was going to ask!

Love and hugs,
