I can't wait to make another Lariat (you should have seen us all at the retreat in them - the ordinary holiday makers at the hotel must have thought we were all members of some secret society waltzing around in our strings of crystal beads!)
Although I had some technical difficulties with the star book (due to generally not listening to the folding instructions carefully lol!!) and thought it was going to be absolutely knickers by the time I'd finished, I now absolutely love it and think they'd be a great alternative to greeting cards. The eclectic style Paper Artsy stamps and German Scraps (the gold embellishments) we played with were really fun. We even painted up all the decorative paper and tags that we used - they looked a bit naff at first (hence the thinking it was going to be pants) but it was amazing how the stamping over them totally transformed them!! Fabby!!!
