homework...

i am tryingto do fun things to liven up my 
monthly stamping club.
we have been meeting together now
for years (like 3 or 4)
and i think we need some fresh ideas to make it fun!
(i'm looking for more if you have any)

one we restarted recently,
that was a carry over from when 
my upline
the fabulous Susan Kauber
ran our club was
HOMEWORK...

it is fun.
you give the girls a pack of stuff...
products to make a card,
and tell them they can stamp on it,
color it,
emboss it,
run over it with their car,
but they are not supposed to add
any embellishments
beyond what is in their homework bag.
so, two months ago we started
giving homework.
here was April's bag:


they received Pear Pizazz CS, a few strips of white CS,
a large button (either green or crumb cake)
a strip of Pear Pizazz Seam Binding
various strips of Springtime Vintage DSP
(which was in the Occasions Mini that was live at the time).

here is what i made:


i used the stamp set,
For Everything
which i love and it has some cute art.
i took the seam binding
and drew it tight in the middle
to make it ripple.


i tied it through the button.

and ran the base of the card
through the Big Shot
and gave it some definition
with the Dots embossing folder.


my stamping got a little messy,
but since...
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES
IN CRAFTING,
i was able to just color it with markers and cover
my mistakes up enough
that they were not noticeable.

overall, it turned out as a card
i would actually send.
and the other girls
each made cute and unique cards 
out of their homework.
