I made another set of cards using a kit I purchased from Echo Park this last weekend and I found a new card maker to follow. Call me Crafty showed how to create a card set using a clear card base and a single unifying design she calls a sheetload of cards.
Of course, I still made a few cards on traditional card stock, but I think I will enjoy switching things up.
I am definitely going to enjoy expanding these skills.
In an effort to keep refilling the creative well, I have many, many hobbies. A few even are kind enough to host online events to challenge us and improve our skills. Youtube is great, but there are times when being able to talk with others who share your enthusiasm, even if it is online, is just what I need to try something.
Next week, one of my favorite bead companies is hosting a summer camp featuring designs with their beads and with classes led by the awesome Nealey Patel at Silver Silk (I love their unique chain) and Meredith Roddy from Beadalon, just to name a few.
There will be so many awesome designers, I am happy dancing at the thought of getting a jump on some Christmas presents. Best of all, the Jesse James Beads camp kit comes with everything you need except a few basic tools and jump rings.
