I hope you had a good weekend, mine was exceptionally good, so full of crafting and wonderful people.
Friday evening I met up with my good friend Stephanie-Emma and a few of her other friends at a Stampin' Up Party. We had such a good time, playing with some of their new products and making Christmas cards.
Friday night was a bit of a late night, but I was having so much fun I did not want it to end, however, I had to be up at 5:30 Saturday morning to drive (when I say drive, I didn't do the actual driving, Stephanie-Emma did) to Milton Keynes to meet up with the rest of the Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team, for a day full of good friends and crafting, sharing tips and techniques. It was such a great day. In a way I did not want to go home but by the end of it I was just soooo tired!
I want to say a great big thank you to Stephanie-Emma for organising the day and to all of the wonderful people who shared their knowledge with the rest of us, such a talented bunch of ladies.
I made some Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) to swap with the rest of the team on Saturday. Regular followers of my blog will know that I have only recently started to make ATCs, in fact this meeting was the reason I decided to make them. In all I made two dozen but to share all of them in one post would make it a very long post so I thought I would try to post them over the next few days.
I wanted my ATCs to say something about me and the way I craft. I think that one of the most obvious things about my projects it the amount of glitter I use, I love the effect of glitter, therefore I think that my ATs should have lots of glitter.
For my first set of ATCs I decided I wanted to use my very recently acquired Stampin' Up snowflake die. I love this die, you can either use it as three separate snowflakes or you can stack them up and make the most beautiful dimensional snowflake.
It took me a while to get use to working with such a small canvass but the challenge is strangely compelling.
Hopefully, I shall be back again tomorrow to share another set with you.
