Calendar Class - Now Booking!

Hello Everybody!

Just a quick post to tell everyone about my latest class. This one will take place on Saturday 20th October at Beauchief Baptist Church from 10.30am onwards.  We will be making a calendar as you can see above - but not any old calendar!

The kit we will be using is the Merry Moments Simply Scrappin' Kit.  Do not be fooled by the title - this class is for much more than just Christmas!

In this class we will be making 12 different 6" x 6" scrapbook layouts, which could also be used as card fronts if you so wish. I will also be providing a full calendar for the entirety of next year with plenty of space to write on your various engagements.  If you'd like to come along, please get in touch or book your place via my website HERE.

In a few days I should have written up the instructions. If you can't come along to the class the instructions will be available for a small fee, so watch this space!

One Kit, Two Albums!

Hello Everybody!

Just a quick post to show you what I've been doing over the past couple of days.  My first love is scrapbooking and so I bought this new kit called Snowflake Season from our Autumn/Winter mini catalogue to give it a try.  It consists of two Crumb Cake coloured cardstock sheets, two patterned die cut papers, ribbon, bakers twine, snowflakes, two clothespins and a sheet of die cuts.  

It makes a lovely kit, but I thought I'd have a go at making it into more than just a double page layout by turning it into albums which could be given as Christmas gifts. Here's how I got on:

I made two albums, one a 6" x 6" album and one a concertina album measuring 6" x 3 3/4". Here's a quick look inside both of them:

This is the inside of the 6" x 6" album.  This one is great as it's quite flat and would be easy to mail.

This is a quick photo of the inside of the concertina album.

Both albums were made using just the contents of the kit. The only things I added was images from the Snowflake Soiree stamp set, some pearls and inks in Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.

For a closer look and more explanation, please see my video below.
