Lovely Lace Class Wednesday 20th August

Hi everyone, this is very last minute but here is a photo of the projects we're making in card class this week. I've had trouble taking the photos as my camera battery is nearly dead and I can't find the charger anywhere. Then there was added interference from the cat - you can see what I mean as I've added those photos too. So this is what we'll be making:

There is a gift bag with a matching card, 2 other cards and even the envelopes were embossed. All of the embossing was done using the Big Shot and the Lovely Lace embossing folder. The class is £12 as usual so please contact me if you want to join us on 07970 708348. It's not too late.

For those of you who haven't seen the fantastic Big Shot offer for the month of August click HERE to check it out. if you buy a Big Shot in August, you get a free Framelits and matching stamp set. This makes the Big Shot less than £50 and therefore an absolute bargain. If you're interested then don't delay. You can order through my on-line STORE

And, as promised, here is Felix the cat, interfering with me taking my photos. He doesn't usually jump on my desk but today was obviously an exception.

I'll be back soon with more detailed photos of these projects. Hope you like them. x

Cascade Card Class - Wednesday 23rd July 2014

Hi everyone. The next card class is on Wednesday 23rd July, so not much notice this time. I have been asked to do a class on Cascade Cards and I was also asked to make the tic tic holders, which we have made previously. 

So, this is what I came up with:

I have gone for the rustic look, so if you like this project, please join us on Wednesday. The class will be held on Wednesday 23rd July, 7.00-9.30pm, at my house in West Bridgford.

Cost will be £12 as usual and includes everything you need except adhesives. As I'll be teaching you how to make this card, it would be useful if you had a trimmer with a score blade. if you don't have one of these, don't worry, you can use one of mine.

If you want to join us please contact me by email or phone before Tuesday 22nd July 6pm.

Project Life - at long last

Hi everyone, I'm busy working on my Project Life pages so I can show you the finished article but I'm not quite ready yet so I thought I would show you the products. If you don't know what I'm talking about then you're in for a treat because Project Life is a really easy way to scrapbook your photos.

You don't need loads of papers or embellishments and you won't be intimidated by a blank 12 x12 page (as I always was). You can just slot your photos into divided photo pocket pages, add some cards and do some journaling or, if you want, you can be as creative as you want by adding elements, doodling, creating your own cards etc. The choice is yours. I'm going to show you the Everyday Adventure collection for now.

This is how the cards are packaged. They come in this lovely box which keeps them safe and you get 100 cards in 3 sizes - 4" x 6", 3"x 4"and 4"x 4". All the cards are double sided.

Here's a photo of some of the 6" x 4" cards:

Here are some of the 4" x 4" cards:

And finally, the 3" x 4" cards. There are lots of these so I can only give you a flavour really:

This is one of the stamp sets, which Stampin' Up! have developed to coordinate with Project Life. I was lucky enough to win this at a Stampin' Up! event and I think this set has potential for cards too. The set is called Remember This and these stamps are photopolymer which means they are clear - yes, see-through clear, which is great when stamping onto your project life cards.

The last thing to show you is the Accessory Pack. This is the Everyday Adventure accessory pack and it coordinates with the Everyday Adventure cards:

As you can see you get stencils, stickers, embellishments, washi tape, clips, letters etc. Here's a close up:

If you haven't looked at the new catalogue yet, have a look. There are various collections with different colour schemes. The cards are only £13.50 and the accessory packs are only £8.95. We also have the photo pocket pages, albums and other accessories. Project Life is mentioned throughout the catalogue but all the details start on page 188.

I will soon have some special classes using project life so please keep an eye on my blog for the details. xx
