Just got back from another great weekend of crafting!
I went with several of my friends to a weekend called "Winterfest" held at a quaint hotel where we crafted, took classes, ate good & just enjoyed spending time talking, laughing & creating.

I took several classes from various people. Agi from Paper Parachute who always does beautiful cards with papers she designs herself and different ways to fold your card instead of the usual. She puts beautiful crystals on her cards as well...always a treat. Hers are more of the "elegant style"

I took a class from PK Glitz where I learned how to use glitter & acetate. I LOVED the butterfly card we did!!I think I'm going to add a black ribbon under the sentiment. Of course had to buy some of their glitter and supplies to make some more at home. My picture is a little blurry.Sorry!
I also took a class that we made 8 cards featuring Penny Black's those! I have to finish putting them together. The class went so fast I wasn't able to assemble them completely so I hope to get that done today.

I also took a layer by layer class. Time consuming but they turned out beautiful. Not sure if I want to use them on a card like the teacher did so I haven't mounted them on anything. Might use them on a scrapbook page or another project. Hers was full of crystals and I was a little disappointed that we didn't get any to put on our projects..she is known for using tons of crystals on her projects and we all thought we would get them for ours but we didn't (pout):0(... We did put lots of glitter on them but the sparkle isn't showing in the picture.
They asked me to teach there next year! I just have to get up the nerve but I probably will do it. I brought 5 make & takes for the last day and they got a good response and that encouraged me to at least think about teaching a class next year.
I didn't get a lot of projects that I brought along done but my cookie tag book is almost done. Hope to finish it today. It is turning out so cute!! I decided to keep this one for myself. I will post pictures when I get it done.
Thanks for dropping by today!
see you soon.
