The Mama's First Card Making Class

Tonight I attended my very first card making class at the local Presbyterian Church hall and oh did I love it ... a lot!

You simply turn up, pay $5 and get shown how to make a couple of cards. The cards are a little like scrap booking which I have done in the past. I love the fact that this is so quick and you end up with a finished project very quickly, which is usable!

My first card ... I just love it!

A close up of my pansy.

For the second card, they showed us a completed one, then gave us all the materials that they used, showed us the techniques on how to achieve them and then it was up to us to put it together however we wished to. We could leave off things, or even add them.

Here's my second card.
I think it would be lovely attached to a hamper as a gift card, it's very rustic.
There is a class held in town once a month, so I am hoping to get to the next one.
The only problem that I can see, is me wanting to purchase every little stamp and cutter that I come across to continue making them at home ... I feel like a kid in a candy store.


  1. Gorgeous cards. Im sure you can justify all the cool products by saying that they are for home schooling purposes ;)

    1. Hope you can come to the next class with me Jodz. Think you would enjoy it!
