DL Tag Card Workshop

Good Afternoon Everyone!

It's a bit breezy here in Nottingham today, but I'm not complaining.... at least the snow has gone and 'normal' life has resumed!

OK, I have had quite a few requests from people asking me to put photos on my Facebook and Twitter of the cards we have made at my classes...
It's actually easier for me to pop them on my blog (and quicker) so here you go... 
This is our project from this week...

This is a DL Tag card in Cream & Black, using one of the fabulous Saturated Canary images..

Most of you know by now that I adore my Pro Markers, I very rarely make a card where I haven't coloured in and distressed something! And if you look closely, you will see that (as you'd expect) my edges are inked! :o)

I also love my punches and use them all the time... the little butterflies, the heart, the tags and the flowers have all been made using my punches.... 
They are all on my website too, so if you like them... here's a link 

Hope you like this project... I love it and I'm in the middle of a pink and cream version now :-)

Happy Crafting!

Flip Album Page 3 :-)

Good Evening Everyone

Our Journey into my Flip Album continues with this page from our Christmas in New York a few years ago.

We loved New York and took so many photos that there will have to be more than one page for it!
Needless to say, this was the winter we had all the really bad snow and New York got it too, as my next page (page 4) will show you!

I hope you like this page, I really enjoyed creating this one, love the colours, the patterned papers and the fact that, for once, I have only used 3 photos!

Here it is, let me know if you like it :-)

Happy Crafting!

My flip album project progress :-)

Good Afternoon Everyone

If you have been following me on Facebook or Twitter, you'll know I've been making a Flip album using one of my Graphic45 12x12 albums.

The plan is (ha ha) to create a lovely album of different pages from our holidays and weekends away, that I can leave in our dining room and just 'flip' the pages to a different one when I feel like it :-)

Of course, this is all being created in my 'spare' time, so it could take a while to finish! But that's part of the fun of it... Something I can look forward to when I do get a spare few hours :-)

Now, thinking about this logically (which is so unlike me!) I have to keep the pages relatively flat so they aren't too bulky when they flip over, so I've made good use of my silhouette machine :-)

I've now finished two pages and thought I'd take you on this project 'journey' with me... I hope you like them :-)

Here's the first two pages,

Happy Crafting!

Craft Clinic on Create & Craft

Good Evening Everyone

Just a quick message to let you know that I am back on Create & Craft next Monday 21st January for a 2 hour Craft Clinic :-)

Really looking forward to this show, there will be embossing, water colouring with distress inks, enamelling, embossing with utee, mica flakes, punching to create some beautiful flower embellishments and more (if we have time!)

There's a few of my favourite techniques in there so it's sure to be fun, informative (I hope!) and I'll be sharing some of my hints and tips throughout :-)

Hope to see you there, put it on your calendar :-)
