2 weeks of scrapbooking!

I have been so busy the last 2 weeks (no excuse I know) that this is the first night I have been able to get our classes uptodate on the blog. 

So this was not last week but the week before!!! We used some 'just beautiful' My Minds Eye papers and... we used the Cricut machine with the Storybook cartridge for our titles.  So here is my example

and here are the ladies stunning layouts...

Triple Easel Secret Crafter Copic Card Class

Good afternoon ladies

What a lovely relaxed class we had today, and those fans were sheer heaven weren't they and doesn't Lynn make the best cuppa's ever and perfectly timed too.

Hope you all enjoyed your planned BBQ's, mine was delicious and finished off nicely with a nice glass of rose.

Today's techniques learnt 
facial blending
tip to tip blending
 different types of copics
 refilling copics
replacing copic nibs

This is the Triple Easel Card that we made
The images available at Grimsby Crafts are Secret Crafter Manga Images - the beauty of these is that the face is rather large and allows the extra room to create the facial features using the copics.  The papers are also available in the shop, the pearls are but have been coloured with the copics.

Here is a close up of each image

G99, G94, G82 (greens) Little boy

Thursday night scrapbooking

 Hmmm yummy pages from My Minds Eye 'Lost & Found'  were the papers used for our scrapbooking night - very very good quality that were perfect for inking and distressing!!  Lynn certainly has good taste for scrapbooking papers.  We made a different handmade flower this week - the pompom flower!

Here is the page I made for the class as an example 

Here are the ladies being busy bees as always

Thursday Scrapbook Night

Thursdays night class was a busy old one - distressing, embossing, inking, and punching!!!  Lots of work involved but as usual our ladies did a fine job creating their layouts based on the one I made below.

Here they all are being busy and creative!

Chris and Sue finished their pages with quite a few minutes to spare

and so did Lisa and... oh its Sharon hiding!!

Heres Katrina shaking her little bag of completed flowers lol!!!!

and here is Jackie with her completed page (inside the shocking pink box at the corner of the table was a fantastic album that Jackie had made - filled with oodles and oodles of  design and detail - she sooo needs to get a blog to showcase these little beauties off)!!! 

Well thats it for this week - hope to see you all next week
