Summarise your week missus...?

Amazing.  Thank you to everyone who took part in WOYWW4..I'm still visiting and will be for a while, real life really does get in the way of the old pleasures, huh!

One of my crafting pleasures is conducting the odd workshop at Kraft Crazy as you know, and this week we did the 'Almost One Layer Cards' workshop.  So called because at the time of planning workshops and dates, I just knew that I wouldn't be able to stick to the remit if it was simply 'One Layer Cards'.  And I was right.  
Old (original release I think) Cuttlebug folder.  Still pretty. 

Stamps and papers by Marianne Designs.  

All 'Provance' papers by Graphic 45.  Love 'em.( Don't know if it's a spelling mistake or deliberate...reads badly to me though, have to say!) 

Kaiser Craft, Kanban and free cover stamps.

See what I mean...about as one layer as I can get without making them all the same - as in stamp a background on the card front and collage stamps onto that.  Funny huh.  But, they're all quite different which isn't a bad thing.  The Librarian did three of the four and declared herself pleased, even after I'd pointed out that it really was called ALMOST One Layer to get me out of the cart a bit.  Ah well.  Frankly, if The Librarian is happy, so am I.

Always fun to see what other teachers do for classes. Love this concept of "almost" one layer... Thank goodness for the Internet and all its inspiration...can be a thief of crafting time...such a catch 22!

Redanne said...

Hi Julia, I would be veryhappy indeed if I made all those cards in one class - they are all beautiful. Hugs, Anne x

Kim said...

Yea, I can't seem to stick to one layer either, and I'm pretty much one dimensional! LOL! Love the embossed one and the butterly!
Have a great weekend.

As you probably know by now, I am NOT a card maker. But I honestly believe I could make these cards. They are clearly perfect examples of cards that can be put together when time might be limited, or if you are a card novice like myself.

Sounds like both you and the Librarian are happy with the outcome. And it sounds like a super busy week, too.

I'm not a stamper so one layer cards aren't in my repertoire but these I could handle.

Krisha said...

They are all great cards and yes I do believe that one layer is really a challenge, for me anyway, and I don't like too much (yeah right) on a card.

Oh, well done! I'm so proud of your "almost" OLC! Well done and beautiful job branching out!!

Almost one layer...I will have to remember that phrase!
They look great...my faves are the first and the vintage clothing models...so Mad Men looking!

Sparkly Engineer said...

Boy you were a busy little bee. Your cards are great. I know I have a hard time with one layer cards I cannot seem to keep to that limit

Hi Julia,

Great cards! I don't know if I would have noticed the spelling error.... well done!

I've visited only one WOYWW desk so far so today is the day. I'm hoping to visit all my required visits (those that visited me and those that end in the same number) and then from there hopefully everyone else.

The advantage of being so behind is that I get to see other posts too!

Hugs,
Kay

Hi Julia
firstly I would like to thank you for a fantastic week, the WOYWW was so much fun with the ATC swap. I am still making more ATC's because I keep getting more requests!
Love these cards but I have to confess to struggling with one layer.
