Stampin' Up! Distressing Kit

I have a workshop tomorrow and the lovely hostess Marj has invited some artist friends who aren't normally 'carders' as she put it. She asked if I would do something with inks, distressing or markers and so I've been playing and experimenting.  I've wanted to have a go at making one of these suitcases for a while and finally got around to having a go.  I've seen pictures, but decided to have a go at my own size and so I made the dimensions to fit our note cards that come in sets of 20 with envelopes.  I've only used four to put in the suitcase but you could put more with less embellishments on the cards themselves.

I've also finally got up the courage to have a go with our distressing kit.  Vintage style is very in vogue at the moment and the distressing kit is perfect for adding a vintage feel to your crafting.  See one go and I think I'm an expert - not, but it was much easier to use than I thought, so if you'd like to know more about the things you can do with this kit then check out my classes listed here for the distress kit class that won't distress you but relax you at a fun enjoyable session.
Here you can see the note cards and envelopes fit in perfectly and I made it just like an old fashioned case wtih ties to hold them in place.  I've decided to enter this as my 'something new' for Shelli's Creative Challenge for July.

More soon. Keep smiling and make this a great week!
