You know you’ve had a good day

when your hands are covered in ink and you’re still smiling. I think that everyone who left today had a smile on their face and a new bag to use for their craft goodies.
This was the first time we have used Canvas Bags and it made a great class. Here are the three rough drafts I made. Everyone made their own in order to choose their own designs.
And here is the finished bag made using fabric paint, markers stamps and grungeboard.
I wish I could have had the camera ready when everyone saw what they were going to make. They ranged from “Yeh right” to “I can’t do that” but after a bit of playing and some relaxing stamping and painting everyone made a great bag.
Here are just a few close ups
Now everyone has their own unique craft bag. I put some more photos of the day onto Facebook so don’t forget to pop over and take a look. You can find the Facebook link on the right of this blog.
Thanks to everyone for today. I had a great time. xxx

Saturday was a great day

A beautiful mini book in the morning designed by Karen. I can’t show you yet because I am teaching it again this Tuesday evening but it was a real treat.
The afternoon class was the Limited Edition where we make 7 or 8 layouts for our class to copy or use for inspiration with a great kit this time from Prima.
Here are a few of the layouts from the day.
You can see more of the class layouts HERE.
Don’t forget to have a go at entering the Card and Scrapbook Challenges. Have a great sunny day. xx
