School has just resumed this week for term 4 and the last term of Primary school for my oldest daughter.
During the holidays though I held a couple of classes for children. The kids love my classes and I love seeing the kids being creative. In my first class the kids made 3 cards and decorated a box.
The box originally held stock for my husbands install work but I was able to cover it and be able to add it to my class. I covered it in Designer Paper and then I sealed it with some Mod Podge. The kids were then able to cut out their letters and stick them on using dimensionals. The offset the letters slightly to give a shadow effect. My youngest daughter helped each of the girls with their letters. It was great to have the extra helping hand.
I was so very happy with the result.
The cards were fairly simple and we used the Wishing You Well Stamp set from the holiday catalogue. I used Gold thread to add some extra interest to each of the cards. These card are from the catalogue so I just copied the design and had a class ready to go. The catalogues are a great source of inspiration.
I hold classes most school holidays so if you think your child would be interested and you live in Sydney Australia then contact me or like my Facebook page and I can let you know when my next classes will be on.
And if you’d like to purchase any of the products that I used in the class then click on any of the items below to be taken directly to my online shop.
During November I will be holding 3 Santa’s Workshop Card Classes using the Santa’s Workshop Suite from the Holiday Catalogue.
In the class you can make 16-20 cards using the Santa’s Workshop Memories&More Card Pack & Cards & Envelopes Pack. The Memories & More Card Packs make it so easy to make lots of cards in one sitting. The Cards & Envelopes Pack make it even easier with pre-scored cards and matching envelopes.
This is a great way to get a lot of Christmas Cards made quickly and ready for you to send out.
These cards were originally designed by Trish Todd in the US. I used her card design layouts to make my cards. The Memories & More card pack make these cards very simple and with limited stamping needed.

Day 7 brings these cute little bon bons made from the Year with Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I had a request for some boxes for a Christmas table that would hold 2-3 chocolates. This is what I found on YouTube. I love these little boxes so much that I’m going to make some for my Christmas table this year.
These are just two designs of from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper which is on the retiring list till its sold out.
I found a video on how to make these cure bon bons at Intertwyne Designs. They are so cute and I had to make them. There is a also a box that she made to fit 4 of these into.
