Retro Fresh Cards–Team Training Inspiration

2014_04_Team Training_Retro Tags Projects 009

Another 2 blog post day!! Don’t miss this weeks’ Weekly Deals information here…. extra weeks worth for you!

Following on from yesterdays post showing the Briefcase Mini Album Team Training project…. I had also quickly made some cards to show using some of the Retro Fresh Journalling Tags  & papers. Most of these are what I call concept cards ie cards made to just show off a different idea …. and I was also aiming to make a set of cards suitable for all sorts of occasions….. And no they did not get to make these at the Training session  too… that really would have taken everyone all day!!! Although I was originally asked to do 6 cards and a mini book…! Luckily Julie believed me when I said it would be FAR too much for the session!!!

So looking at them individually…..

New Home simple easel card – with the full High 5 Journalling Tag as it looks like a house – and to mark the celebration. And as we don’t have the greeting New Home … I had to get inventive….so the NEW HOME is spelt out from letters using the Oh Goodie stamp set we got for free at convention... I do now have some other ideas for that stamp set…..

Congrats…on passing your driving test… and now I went really…. mad!!! The Congrats Journalling Tag reminded me of a rosette – so I cut it out & just added some washi tape to make the tails… The cap of the Awesome Ketchup Bottle Journalling Tag reminded me of a traffic cone!!!! The card itself is a Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Centre Flap fold Card…. think that card may have to go on the Tutorials to write up list….
