Hello Students! Iris folding is a technique that originated from the Netherlands. The inside of envelopes were used in the beginning. Now all kinds of paper (wrapping, candy, tissue papers) are used. This is a really fun class and you will impress your friends and family with these cool looking cards. Below are a few samples. We will begin with a simple pattern and then advance to a more detailed pattern. All the materials are included in this class. To sign up, please email me:
From the shores of Delaware, I have been amazed and inspired by the ocean. Focusing on this theme, I have put together some cards that include sea glass, ocean creatures, anchors, sailboats and lighthouses. Take a peek and leave me a message. Thanks for stopping by!
All the sea glass I use on my cards are genuine and have been collected by me in the states of Connecticut and Delaware.
2018 has been an amazing year! We moved and we are delighted with our decision. We live near the beach, shopping and restaurants galore, and we have wonderful new friends. I do miss my family, but we go back and forth often. In October, I was in a craft show in our new community. I sold many many cards, and I was thrilled! (A picture is below.) One of my new crafty friends organized a “crafts club”, and I taught two classes of iris folding, making ornament and snowflake cards for the holiday. Before 2019 begins, I want to share some of my cards for this holiday season, and a couple of sea glass pictures I made as gifts. Here we go!
My next post will be my sea glass cards!
Stitching on paper is not new. However recently a few dies were created to use in cutting machines that make holes on the entire paper. It’s a game changer. Here are a few Valentine Day cards.
I find stitching to be a lot of fun. It’s versatile and there is no right or wrong. What could be better? Here are some recent cards–Easter, Mother’s Day, and Birthday.
Thanks for stopping by. Check back, I will have more stitching to post.
