Cardmaking Workshop October 2011

Today I attended my first cardmaking workshop by Jackie Mooney. I arrived with myb pathetic little bag of ‘essentials’, only to find that everybody else had brought big suitcases of crafty stuff that was much lovlier than mine. (Many thanks to Babs for letting me rob all her tools n stuff all day!) I went home afterwards and bought promarkers, glossy accents, corner rounders and more on www.cardsnscrapz.ie (they take Laser cards!).
We completed six projects in total, and Jackie provided us all with a kit for each one.

The topper on this card is a butterfly cut from glittery vellum.

Easel card, featuring a stamped image coloured with Promarkers (I'm still learning how to do this!)

The tea set is a stamped and cut image finished with Glossy Accents, and has a 3D flower in the corner.

Trick or Treat Goody Bag

Hallowe'en Goodies!

Easel card finished with stickles glitter.

The background on this card is actually a napkin!

Many curse words could be heard from my corner as I made hundreds of mistakes, but all in all I’m happy with my finished cards. I learned a lot and am looking forward to eventually becoming a pro like the rest! Thanks to Jackie for the opportunity and to my huibby for ‘babysitting’! Thanks also to Isobel for organising the card kit swap (even though I forgot to bring mine, D’Oh!) and breast cancer raffle and fab Christmas booby prize.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
