Tilted Easel Card Class

Hello ladies

so sorry for the delay, total madness in our home at the moment, but never mind all of that

here is the card that the lovely ladies created on Sunday

With so much detail it was hard to create the full card in the class, so hoping these photo's help you to complete your cards
The copic colours used are the full cool greys and the full warm greys

for more details hop on over to my blog as I have written fully how it was created there.

The next class date is in Lynn's diary so hope you can all join us again

Will be making the next card for the class at the weekend, so this will be on show in the shop shortly

thank you all had a fabulous time

Hugs Kate

Scrapbooking - Thursday & Friday

After a 2 week break 'sorting out' scrapbooking night was back on and I have to say I missed my ladies very much and couldn't wait to see everyone.

Our page for this week was using the Madeline papers by Prima - very yummy!!!!!  We did some inking, diecutting and of course making our own flowers lol.  And here is the page.....

Here are my Thursday night ladies (look at the desks!!! ooops)....

  Sue, Sandra, Katrina, Sam, Lynn and Jackie

And here are my new Friday morning ladies......

  Chris, Hannah, Cheryl, Leslie and Betty
2 ladies were complete novices but you would never tell by the layouts they created this morning.

Looking forward to next week when we start our Christmas layouts using scrummy papers by My Minds Eyes!!!

Thanks for looking

Altered beermats workshop

I love getting messy, so the altered beer mats class was just up my street.....

We messed about with gesso, texture paste, distress inks etc and created our own vintage style wall hangings.

Everyone seemed to enjoy choosing their own colours

and it was great to see the finished results.

Quite shabby and vintage in style.

With colours individually chosen.

Well the next workshop for me to teach is the full day of (dare I say) Christmas cards. Really looking forward to it!

Sunday August 14th was spent here at Grimsby Crafts making this photo album out of some of the most gorgeous papers by My Mind's Eye.

There was an awful lot of measuring, cutting, inking, and punching involved but we all went home with the album either nearly ready / ready for adding photos to. My first workshop and would I do it again???
