And one of my favourites made mostly from a border paper. I make full use of any borders and keep a stash just in case. I am also playing with my photos using Picasa and have fallen in love with the little polaroid photos. In fact, since I discovered them I have used them in nearly every layout I have done.
These are the days
This is the second of three layouts in the new kit.

Loads of layouts to share

As you know we teach classes nearly everyday and make loads of layouts and projects as examples. I am a bit behind in sharing these so I will try to catch up by adding daily layouts for you to see.

I also have loads of lovely examples of Gayle's latest Digi Stamp release. These are now available on disc from the shop and will go online today. Just so you know, our Digi Stamp discs not only have the Digi images but also example cards to get you started. I am gradually putting all releases on disc so watch the website for more details.



All of the little photo discs are attached by brads and spin and there are even little tiny photos on the four discs at the bottom.

This is one of the layouts in our latest Scrapbook Kit being released on Friday,

Have a fantastic day and enjoy the sunshine. xxx

Spotlight on

another day and another talented lady. I just love seeing a completed project especially when they are all different. Today Tracy is sharing her pink Configurations Tray. Tracy is new to crafting but you can see from her work just how much she loves it.
Lovely work Tracy. Thanks for sharing. x

Spotlight on

We had a great Creativity 101 Class a few weeks back. On the day I posted pictures of the class example which you can see HERE.
Today I am showcasing Wendy Empetts version of this project. Wendy chose to do her Configurations Tray using a British theme.
The little section marked “Memories” is actually a little mini book.DSCF4164
These picture do not do this project justice. Lovely work Wendy. xx

Scrapping Your Family

I love this class. It’s not like any other we do at the shop mainly because, instead of getting in a set of papers and making layouts using the designs on the paper as a guide, we get in random papers to use for a pre-set theme.
The papers can be from more than one range  and they don’t necessarily go together but they suit our topic for the month.
This time our chosen topics were, “Favourite records” and “Ladies that lunch”
Although this layout is fairly simple it took quite a long time to make. I managed to get the record label for the large record from the internet.
I love this one. Although I don’t get much time to go out with friends I do occasionally get lunch out so I will put a photo on here at some time soon.
These two layouts will come out as a kit next week so watch the website for more details. Thanks for looking. xx

A hectic day

but a good one and loads of people in class who all appeared to have a good time. This morning we did Scrapping Your Family where we made two layouts which I will share with you tomorrow. In the afternoon I had a technique class where we made pencil cases using fabric paints, pens, stamps and stencils.
Here are a few photos of our ladies in action.

There were loads of lovely work and everyone finished. Well done everyone.
I am teaching a class in July called “Fun with fabric” showing you a great way to use your fabric scraps on your scrapbook pages and cards so watch out for that one.
Have a great evening. xx
