Last night I took a card class at my local scrapbooking store and created some fabulous cards, including these two Mother's Day cards. Love when I can learn new techniques while making cards for special occasions.
I just loved learning how to make a fabric flower. To make it, cut a 12 x2 inch piece of fabric. Then fold it lengthwise (think hot dog), and sew the two sides together lengthwise again at the end, using a running stitch. Then pull it tight and knot it up. Now, if you sew, this is so fast and easy. I don't. Not only did I have to ask what a running stitch was, I think I stuck myself, oh say, 12-15 times... The girls around me were laughing at me. But it was worth it and I can't wait to buy some fabric and try it again.
I also ran across a great link I wanted to share with you. Paper Craft Planet just put an Introduction to Photoshop tutorial video on the website. I know a few friends are thinking about trying out digital scrapbooking, so this might be a good place to start.
Well, that's it for me. Hope everyone has a great Thursday. The weekend's just around the corner...
