Although we have used this as an Easter Cross it could also be used on a Sympathy card. Hope you love them as much as we do.

Alice was great

We had a lovely few hours adding Alice to our Art Journals. Everyone got covered in paint (well I did anyway) and we had some lovely results.

Such a busy day…………..

After 2 weeks changing the shop around and making the classroom bigger, it was nice to get such a great thumbs up from our Saturday Classes. We started with the morning card class. Ten ladies, both new and experienced crafters made 4 cards and drank loads of tea and coffee.
P1100555
Would love to know what made these lovely ladies laugh.
P1100556
P1100560
And then after a quick tidy up we greeted everyone in the Limited Edition Class in the afternoon.  I you haven’t tried one of these classes then it’s time to give it a go. We provide a super duper scrapbooking kit and give you 10 layouts to copy and you just have a great time.

And while all this is going on, our Emma has been busy die cutting on the Vagabond. We have been using it since last week to start getting everything ready for the Tim Holtz Product Class next Saturday. (Getting excited now)
P1100570
Here are just four of the layouts used as examples:

The pictures just do not do these justice but I’m working on it. If anyone has any suggestions please leave a comment. Have a great weekend.
