Chantie visited me last week; she came on wednesday night and left on sunday. Whenever we meet each other, we have gifts for each other. One of the gifts she gave me was a set with pattern paper, christmas style. It was beautiful! I couldn’t wait to try it out. And that happened sooner than I could’ve hoped for.
Chantie told me she wanted to have a look at all my scrapping things and try make a card. I was happy. More than happy actually to show her my scrapping world. So we took out all my stuff; placed some on my dining table and some on the floor. It was funny to see her reaction as everything got placed in my livingroom. She was quite surprised by all the things I had; something I can understand. I have a lot of things. Of course not as much as some people, but if you’re a newbie, you’ll find what I have a lot.
First we went through all my things. She asked questions about how things worked and I answered her. Then she wanted to make a few cards for herself. First she started with two Christmas cards; one for her mum and one for her dad (if my memory isn’t playing with me).
She also made a card her friend Dennis, who took care of her cats while she was here.
This is a really cute card. I love the colors and the cute cats. For being the first time she’s been doing this, she did great! She also made a card which she gave me.
It says: Friends, today, tomorrow, always. Such a cute one! It’s goin up on my fridge.
I managed to try out the pattern paper Chantie gave me. I didn’t use any other pattern paper than the set she gave me. It had several beautiful patterns! And they came in size 15 x 15 cm; the prefect size!
Pretty show pattern. Fell in love with that one!
The snowflakes pattern is beautiful. I love the hint of silver.
One of my new rubber stamps.
The candy canes are über-cute! I just love them!
Some more snowy paper <3 And some new rubber stamps.
I had a blast making cards with Chantie. I had never thought she would enjoy it. As I told her, I thought she would be too impatient and get bored after 15 minutes. But she didn’t. Woot, woot! She really loved it!
Im looking forward to use the rest of the pattern papers I got. It will be so much fun making cards now!
