Saturday at Beverly's
Today two people wanted to know how to make a piano hinge book. That made me very happy. It feels good to pass on knowledge. I was up until early this morning making flowers for an arrangement. They were made using the spellbinders scalloped hearts. It is a lot more work using the die cut but it also gives six size of hearts. So I was able to make three sizes of hearts with the left over paper. Also if you die cut four sheets at a time they will also emboss becaue it is so thick. If you try die cutting six sheets two won't cut but it leaves a cool impression in the heart shape made of tiny wrinkles. I love this effect and plan on using it in the future. The flowers were made using the paper flower tutorial on this blog. After hot gluing the flowers together I then brushed the edges with a gold ink pad. That really brought them to life. Now they look more like flowers then paper. I also finished a ATC but if I told anyone they would have to shoot me : ) Three more ATCs and I will be finished with the swap.
Today Beverly's had a 30% off everything day. Three years ago I went to one of these sales and they had to limit how many people could enter the store. Today the parking lot was almost empty. Very sad. While I was there I bought some fabric to finish a project. Also bought some gingham to practise smocking, the even design makes it easier to make the gathers. Plus I found some BoBunny paper! All for under $14.00. BoBunny ATC?
Anyway that was enough excitement for a whole week so I'm going to rest and start on projects again tomorrow. I hope everyone has a lovely evening.
