What a picture

Thought it was about time I posted some of the Scrapbook layouts from class. It’s quite surprising how much preparation it takes to make all of the elements that go to make just one layout.

Those flowers took ages

P1100926

But I think it was the most popular of the two.

The second of the layouts was designed around a really old photo of me, my sister and my cousin. For some reason I could only find it in black and white although I remember the original being in colour.

The trees were from a free set of stamps on a Creative Stamping magazine.

We decided in class that they could also be used as snowman bodies. Might give that a go later.

Hope your days are full of health and fun xxx

Creativity 101 tomorrow

Evening ladies

If you are coming to class tomorrow please remember that we are starting promptly at 9am to make sure we finish in time.

The project you are making is completely new and very pretty, (pictures will be posted after the class), and this will be sold as both a kit and for those of you not crafty, a ready made project after the class online.

For those of you coming to class if you would like to bring any of the following for your own personal use it will speed up the class. For those of you who do not have any of these items please do not panic as I have some to use in class.

Sizzix machine or equivalent

Dotty embossing folder.

Hot Glue Gun

PVA Glue

not a big list but helpful if you have them.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and having a fun packed morning. xxx

The final two Christmas cards

from the last class are probably my favourites and so easy to make.

Card Five is made entirely from white paper and coloured with Distress Inks with only a small piece of the blue dotty paper to add some colour.

P1100922

And finally Card Six took only 10 minutes to make and is one of those cards you could make in bulk for family and friends.

P1100923

So here are all six to finish off this post.

P1100920

P1100924

My next post will be showcasing the Scrapbook Layouts done in class over the last few weeks. Have a good day xxx.

Two more cards

Before I show these I want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and thoughts at this time. As a family we really appreciate everyone's emails, texts and cards. Thank you so much xxx

Scrapping Your Family on Saturday is still on and will start at 10am. I still have two places left if anyone fancy's making a couple of Scrapbook Pages. I have used the following photos:

Layout One – A close up 4” x 6” portrait photo of Sally and me in the summer. The colours for this layout are soft orange, green and brown.

Layout Two – A 4” x 6” landscape photo in black and white of me, Karen and a friend playing in the paddling pool in the garden. The era is 1969. The colours are red, white, green and a tiny touch of blue.

Now onto todays Christmas Cards

Card Three – I think this is a Little Claire stamp

P1100919

And Card Four – This is definitely a Hobby Art stamp. It was so easy to use.

P1100921

The last of the Christmas Cards from class tomorrow then I’ll start on the Scrapbook Layouts.

Have a great day xxx
