Warning - LOTS of photos in this post!
I *think* this will be the last post based on the things I saw and learned at the show - but you never know......
One of the workshops I attended was with the lovely Debbie Moore. It was called "Fancy Folds" so yes, I expected to be taught how to make different card folds - but I was amazed when we covered over a dozen different folds in half an hour! And not because of any rushing, it was all done at a relaxed, chatty pace. What made it so fast was that Debbie had simplified everything so that there was no measuring or careful scoring and cutting needed - I don't think there was a ruler or scoring board in the room! Armed just with scissors, a bone folder and our own hands, we produced a wonderful collection of templates which I know I will refer to over and over again. I believe she is bringing out a DVD of her card folding techniques soon, and I think it will be a worthwhile investment as it will save its cost many times over in templates, pre-scored card blanks and wasted card, not to mention time!
Now, the current challenge at CD Sundays is Shabby Chic - the perfect opportunity to give my Debbie Moore "Shabby Chic - Paris" CD an airing. And if that wasn't the perfect opportunity to use some of my new card folding ideas, I don't know what would be!
I got rather carried away and actually made TWO cards, and cutting, scoring and folding the base cards for BOTH of them took a total of around 5 minutes.
As well as CD Sundays, I am joining in with Lots of Folds at Ooh La La Creations.
