A litlle bit of magic...

Hi everyone..

I want to share a couple of cards I've just made.

Some of you may know that I do Demo's from time to time, and at my last demo, a lovely lady came up to me and asked if I would be interested in doing a workshop in her area... H*** YES I would lol.. Anyway to cut a long story short, my work shop is tomorrow...

I have loads of bits planned for us to do, but as a back up, I decided to have a few card kits ready. Its gonna be a big group of people tomorrow, of all ages. Some crafters, some just along for a fun day out. So to make sure there is something for everyone, the kits is there if needed.
(Permission is granted from the designer to use kits at work shop)

What I want to show you is that a simple kit, with a bit of extra stach and know-how, can be transformed very easy. I dont really use kits myself so it was fun to see what I could come up with to push the kit a bit further..

This is what i started out with:
A little card kit from Stamping Dragon.
At only £0.90, its amazing value.

Anyway, here is what I made:
The card on the left, is the kit made up as it is. Just adding an A5 card blank, nothing else.
The card on the right, is me having fun :-)

I have to say, Its been really fun. I normally give the kids the free kits that comes in magazines ect, but it definately wont be the last time I will play with a kit.
Its been a good excuse to think outside the box.

Hope you like what I've made.
Thank you for stopping by, and for any comments left behind.
