Just popping back quickly to add a few photos from Leonie S’s team training day … that I went to last Friday. Onie (Leonie S) was doing a “tool technique” day … and so we got to practice using our new Circle Scissors on each of the projects that we worked on! Pepps (Leonie N) kindly drove us to Campbelltown … and I had as much of a giggle in the car … as I did at the stamping day! It was lotsa fun!
So … here are the three projects that we completed … and on each we did some circle cutting. Now … I’ve gotta say … it would be very tempting to get a bit frustrated using the Circle Scissors … but PLEASE PLEASE persevere!!! It really is just a matter of getting the “FEEL” for the cutting. The secret is to press hard enough to cut … but NOT TOO HARD … and just let the blade “glide” around. Seriously … after a little practice this really is the easiest circle cutter that I have used! (My old one probably will never see the light of day… ever again!!!) 😉 And … using the circle scissor means you can position your circle wherever you like … for eg … the hole in the chockies pack could have been punched with a circle punch EXCEPT it just would not reach that far!
Anyway, it was a fab day … and we also got to see some of the projects that Onie has been working on lately. I have included a gorgeous little gift card holder & cards below using the gorgeous Sale-A-Bration “Happy Moments” stamp set …
