is one of my favourite pastimes and when things get too much you can normally find me snapping a way with my beloved camera.

Life at the minute is a bit stressful but today I have a whole day to myself for the first time in three weeks so this morning out came the camera and I ventured into the garden in my pj’s and started snapping.

Here are the results. I hope you like them.


Basil is a great subject and the only cat I know who likes to bathe in the bird bath lol.

What a picture

Thought it was about time I posted some of the Scrapbook layouts from class. It’s quite surprising how much preparation it takes to make all of the elements that go to make just one layout.


Those flowers took ages


But I think it was the most popular of the two.

The second of the layouts was designed around a really old photo of me, my sister and my cousin. For some reason I could only find it in black and white although I remember the original being in colour.


The trees were from a free set of stamps on a Creative Stamping magazine.


We decided in class that they could also be used as snowman bodies. Might give that a go later.

Hope your days are full of health and fun xxx

Christmas Creativity 101

Well we had a great class today, everyone really busy as we tried to complete our projects.
Here is the class example:
I included some little deer details
and made a second example in reds and greens which was sold as a separate kit
Here is a picture of todays class mates (look at the mess on the table)

And just to prove that we did finish, here are a few candid photos
Nice one Lesley

Lovely work Pat
and finally our Glitter girl (because she was so covered in glitter at the end).
I hope everyone enjoyed the class as much as I did. Kits will go on sale Monday along with some finished wreaths for sale too.
Enjoy your weekend. xxx

Creativity 101 tomorrow

Evening ladies

If you are coming to class tomorrow please remember that we are starting promptly at 9am to make sure we finish in time.

The project you are making is completely new and very pretty, (pictures will be posted after the class), and this will be sold as both a kit and for those of you not crafty, a ready made project after the class online.

For those of you coming to class if you would like to bring any of the following for your own personal use it will speed up the class. For those of you who do not have any of these items please do not panic as I have some to use in class.

Sizzix machine or equivalent

Dotty embossing folder.

Hot Glue Gun

PVA Glue

not a big list but helpful if you have them.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and having a fun packed morning. xxx

The final two Christmas cards

from the last class are probably my favourites and so easy to make.

Card Five is made entirely from white paper and coloured with Distress Inks with only a small piece of the blue dotty paper to add some colour.


And finally Card Six took only 10 minutes to make and is one of those cards you could make in bulk for family and friends.


So here are all six to finish off this post.



My next post will be showcasing the Scrapbook Layouts done in class over the last few weeks. Have a good day xxx.
