Card making course with Tracy Payne

On Saturday afternoon I couldn’t shake the thought that there was something going on this weekend that I’d forgotten about. Suddenly it hit me: there is a big scrapping fair in the city, hosted by North Star Stamps, where Tracy Payne of Noor Design UK is visiting and doing courses. I’d forgotten all about it!! Oh no! I was gutted! I went to Tracy’s FB and typed a post along the lines of “Noooo, I forgot about your courses!!”. Then the sweetheart responded she had one spot left for Sunday. It was the class I had wanted the most as well! Did that make my weekend or what!! I am so happy. It is the first card making course I’ve ever attended, and I doubt it will be my last! The card on this post is what she had us making. Isn’t it the best?! I am so pleased I got to meet Tracy, she is such a lovely person!

A lot of the products is of course by Noor Design: the snowflake and mistletoe dies, the red tag, the stencils we used to cut out the window and card shape as well as the bricks, gesso and structure paste for the white elements. The papers we were provided with are by Pion, as is the adorable image. I honestly don’t know where the rest of the goodies are from, but it wouldn’t surprise me if you can get a hold of some of them at Live and Love Crafts!

And of course I made it home with a big grin on my face along with a few new goodies, including the wonderful window stencil and a few Noor Design dies!

One thing is for certain: this card is going up as one of my Christmas decorations!
