My Kanban Class

Wanna see what we got up to on Saturday’s Kanban class then continue reading…. If not sorry you may find this boring!!

So I like to do at least one thing that is different on my classes so while I was searching for inspiration I came across and unusual way of folding a card Tri-Shutter I was automatically inspired and decided to incorporate this design with the Kanban products. We used Dress-up Pink Dress-up Ruby Foiled Perfume Scroll Brown and Foiled Perfume Scroll Pink.

The base card instructions are

Step 1- Start with a piece of card 5.5”x12” Lay horizontally and score at 2”, 4”, 8” and 10”. Step 2 – Turn the card so it is now vertical and 1.5” from the edge Cut between the score marks 2” and 10” repeat this on the other side. then fold the card as pictured and decorate.

Mega Love

Scrapbooking is getting more popular and mixing card making and scrapbooking is a great way to start off if you have never tried it.

Word Albums are great for this you can say what you would in a insert but with the added pictures which give the card/album that personal and unique touch. Here is and example of on that Debbie did for a couple to give to their daughter as a wedding card. She used Colour My World -More than words Mega Love album

Sarah’s Style Class 2

Another Sarah’s style class some people would assume that we would do the same cards but you would be wrong I have some totally new ideas for you so here we go.

Proving that young people can do vintage too we start with this card using Lace and ribbons which have been layered over the top of one another and finished with paper roses. This is an easy card for you to put your own twist on, just go and have a rummage in you sewing box and see what treasures you can find.


Now for something a little different a DL card in 3 parts. I used Bo Bunny Abby Road paper Dot, Stripe and Vine NEW Flora Doodles flowers and Doodlebug simply sweet letters. I have to make a confession about this card though as the front of the card is cut into three although the card does stand up it bends a little so the ladies on the class and I decided that for a more stable card you should stick the centre piece down, so that is what I did.

As the Class is Sarah’s Style we are doing the kind of things that I am into at the moment and If you have seen My Blog recently you will know that I’m into Stamping in a big way so our next card is a simple stamp and colour Cup cake card and using SEI Bridgeport – Harbour View Background Paper.


Hope you like them.

See you soon
