Almost Fairyland

So layout two was made using a silhouette Bo Bunny Paper. Both sides of the paper are lovely but I chose to use the all blue side (some classmates used the other side for their layouts and you can see them on the Ladies That Craft Facebook page.

All I needed to do was to add a little coloured detail.

P1100010a
The wording was made using letter punches and the circles were made using a stencil and the texture paste I made (you can find out how to make your own HERE).

I am currently working on a Christmas kit which will be available after my class in New Romney on 27th September.
Enjoy your day xxx

Tower Of London

Last Tuesday I went up to London to see the commemorative poppies. It was a wonderful day out
a
I didn’t want the layout to be dominated by the Poppies, rather a memory of the entire visit to the Tower of London. This is what I came up with
P1100009
The shoe print was ideal considering the distance I walked that day.
P1100009a
The Title was made using a Graffiti Font
P1100009b
And the bricks were cut from strips of paper, distressed and then edged with a pen.

Check back for the second layout tomorrow.
Lovely to see everyone again xx

Tonight's Scrapbook Class

It seem ages since I last taught a class but it will be lovely to see everyone tonight.

Photo wise for layout one you will  need a 4 x 6 portrait photo taken outside either park, woods, Country Park something like that.

For layout two think male, or city photo like London or something like that. Something with a person/people and buildings in the background would be good. Smaller photos. Any photo size will work but no bigger than 4 x 6

I have used Distress Inks in Walnut Stain and Black Soot.

And the colours

Now I’ve got you all guessing. See you later xx

The Ladies That Lunch

Yippee the sun shone and the food was made on time and we have just had our very first Ladies That Lunch Tea Party.
Here are just a few photos of the afternoon taken by Sally. Everyone who came will get all of the days photos on disc so don’t panic if you don’t see your photo here.
But before the photos I must give a very big thank you to Maria for keeping me sane and helping me set up before hand and also a big thank you to Sally who painted the backdrop for the posed photos and helped me clear away and wash up. xxxxx
Now without further ado here are some of my picks of the day.

No room left

Cake stands finished, glasses, plates and spoons washed and my house has been transformed into a sea of calm, well for a few minutes anyway.

Here’s what it looks like before all the food makes an appearance.
