So Layout Four is
And the detail
I made all of the 3d embellishments for this class using paper clay and moulds. It took a while but I really enjoyed it. xx

Black and white photos always work well for this and if there is some blank areas, so much the better.
So todays layout (layout three)
And the detail
The one occasion where my title was straight thanks to the railings in the photo. xx

Love those tiny dragonflies xx

and this time there were several layouts finished that didn’t look like mine and that was so good to see. Thank you ladies for making my day.
Here are a few photos (you can see the rest on the Ladies That Craft Facebook page) of the day.
I will post all seven original layouts on the Blog over the coming days. Enjoy the sunshine xxx

I have found it really difficult to photograph but this is the best I can do
and the detail
I love the giant black gems used as the middle of the flowers. xx

Beach/holiday photos including one A4 black and white photo preferably of children on a beach. I am using old photos of me but modern ones will do. Colour and black and white are ok.
Day trip/countryside/woodlands photos. Bring a selection if you have them in both colour and black and white and in any size ie 5" x 7" or 4" x 6" or smaller sizes. They will all work.
Bring your distress inks and a black ink pad for your own personal use if you want to be able to get on more quickly. I have plenty but it might be useful.
Look forward to seeing you all xxx

And some detail
This would also be great as a double layout.
All of the embellishments are made from cardstock so there is no limit to the amount of pages you can make including pages for a mini book. xx

Have a great evening xx

And I love this fantastic new strip die from Tim Holtz.
Working on some more layouts using this theme so watch this space.
Second layout from class tomorrow. Enjoy your evening. “Come on England” xx
Thursday, 12 June 2014
as promised here are the three cards from yesterdays card class.
Really enjoyed making these.
UPDATE: For tonight's Scrapbook Class I have used two photos, one 4” x 6” landscape is a black and white war photo and one 5” x 7” portrait photo is a picture of Terry and our grand daughter although this layout is suitable for any photo.
See you later xxx

Like almost every crafter I have so much “stuff”as my DH call it, that I really don’t need to try anything else. However, no don’t laugh, after sitting with Helen Chilton for an hour and watching her play with Gelato’s I was just itching to have a go.
Here is Helens finished example
And here is my first attempt at a background. Its not finished yet but I am amazed at what you can do with this medium.
and a close up of the texture
Did I buy some? Of course I did and I intend to have a play again soon.
And Helen, if you’re reading this, hairspray does work as a setting agent.
Enjoy the sunshine xx

Now I’m starting to feel better I am itching to get crafting again so todays the day.
To begin I wanted to enter the Less is More challenge with my favourite New Home card. The challenge this week is “More Than One Stamp”.
Keep watching for more updates as I am playing today. Yippee!!!

A few months ago I made a butterfly card for a card class and liked it so much I decided to use it on a layout as well. A butterfly punch is something that most people have so this technique is easy to do.
Here is the card that inspired the layout.
And here is the class layout made using a similar technique.
I have 6 kits for this and another layout. Details will go online soon.
Have a good evening xxx
