I went to a card making get together yesterday in Nashville, IL. I live in Lake St. Louis, MO so that's about 93 miles away. Everybody asks me if I'm crazy for driving that far to craft with friends. I think us crafters would drive anywhere to craft with others. lol Yes, we're a little crazy, but in a good way.
We were in the loft of a barn. Helen has her craft room up there. It's really nice, looks like a store because she has so much. It was nice and air conditioned. Here's a picture.
How cool is that?? Now I can say I made cards in a barn! lol
Here are the cards I made for our card swap. We each made 20 cards and split them.
I used the Silhouette to make this card, the cupcake and words. It cut perfect because I used Close To My Heart card stock. Please give their card stock and patterned papers a try. They cut like butter in the Silhouette. I also used some Papertrey Ink patterned paper in Berry Sorbet. I also used Fruit Punch Stickles on the frosting of the cupcake and a swirly embossing folder.
Hexagons are so popular right now and I love this set by Close To My Heart. It's only $13.95, check out the link to my web page for more details. The inside says 'having a friend like you'.
Close To My Heart - Honeycomb
I also used their Exclusive Black Ink Pad. We all use black ink pads, please give this one a try. You will LOVE it!
If you haven't gotten together and crafted with other people, I'd highly recommend it. It's such a great way to spend an afternoon and be creative with other creative people.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
