I love this Kaisercraft range of papers. They go so well with my granddaughter's photos. The flowers were cut out from a piece of paper from the range and some were pop dotted to give height.

Year 12 Goodbyes

The top 4 cards I made for 4 of the year 12s in my Roll Call Class. I made them for the students to wish them all the best from not only me but the whole roll call class.

The booklets below I made for my Year 12 Biology Class. the students loved them. i also did a Test Tube Award for each student for either funny or serious things they did in class. There are more photos inside and a message to them.

Cooper's Cards

Cooper wanted to make his cousins a card. He saw me making some and he wanted to do craft also. He loves craft and it is great to see a boy so involved. However, the life of a craftsman is always busy with phone calls and creating.

Border Punched Flowers

I have made these flowers as a demonstration at the Cropworks camp that is on the weekend of the 21st October. They are fun to make. I will post a tutorial on them on the Cropworks Blog when camp is over.

Crinkle Flowers.

I have made these flowers from Japanese papers. I used to make them out of fabric and thought they might look Ok in paper. They worked. 

1. Draw a freehand circle on white cardstock.
2. Cut out a larger circle than the drawn one in the Japanese paper.
3. Glue circumference to circumference making a few pleats in the larger circle as you glue.
4. There will be a big hump in the centre, press it down to make the folds in the centre.
5. Cut the 2 layers out as a circle and fold back the cardstock here and there to make the petals.
6. Decorate the flowers with Kindy Glitz etc.
