Calligra-Fun

I have really been enjoying my newest online class - Calligra-Fun with Martha Lever. It is being taught through Creative Workshops. I used to enjoy doing lettering on my paper scrapbook pages, but I'd forgotten just how much I loved it until now. I'm enjoying it almost as much as sewing, and that's saying a lot for me! Anyway, here are some examples of what I've been doing.

First are 2 bookmarks I made. I collaged papers onto the one on the left. The butterfly on the one on the right is my own design (we learned how to do flowers and hearts and suns in the class).



I gave this bookmark to my DH.



This is the anniversary card I gave to my DH; we celebrated 32 years last Wednesday. First is the front of the card.



And here is the inside:



And here is another card I made for a friend.

Yea!! Your letterforms are looking great! Very good!!! Thanks for you help with the sewing. I guess you are right to take the side seam out but that would open up a whole new set of skills I don't know yet. I bought the least expensive Bernina, the Artista 220. I am really enjoying stitching lots of stuff. Fun!!

Bookmarks are a GREAT idea. I wouldn't have thought of that.
