One more finished project!!

This is a tag book we made a while back in a class at the Craft Den. I have used a stamped image of Festive Willow from the "Whiff of Joy collection" available from Lynne's. Coloured her in with copics to tone in with the background papers and finished the oval off with my Icy White pearl pen and a sentiment from craftwork cards.

Rudolph with his red nose!!!

Just a quick post tonight!! Been to the craft den for the usual Wednesday night class and we have done Christmas cards with the new magnolia stamps!!! Lynne has received her long awaited delivery this week and boy are they selling!! The magazine is just so beautiful well worth the wait xx

Another purchase from the Craft Den is this gorgeous Hampton Art stamp!! He is just so cute!!

He looks so beautiful when stamped out and not much to do with him!! just coloured his big blue eyes and chalked round the background. I added a velvet colour and sewed some bells on, his nose I did with red liquid pearls & glamour dust!! Used a snowflake paper from the craft den but can't remember the name and bazzil bling in white & burgundy and added the lovely white ribbon down the edge to finish it off xx

Staying with the Banana Yellow!!!

Another wedding picture of my "Mum", still staying with this beautiful flock (available from Lynne at the Craft Den she has some fab flock paper's in the most gorgeous colours) I thought it would look lovely with a black & white photo!

I have cut round the circles again to give it a different edge, used the colour my world template with loads of different flourishes in and used my black pearl pen. On the bottom I punched a hole in each circle and threaded through black velvet ribbon then added a black glittered "twiggy" piece of foliage and loads of punched circles and flowers to keep the theme!!

Banana yellow flock!!

When Lynne had this yellow banana flock in the shop I just loved it!! It's just flock in loads of circles but it's just a beautiful colour.

When I was sat crafting yesterday this was the paper I had to use but with what!!

Well I thought I would add it to some black Bazzil and colour my new Whiff of Joy "Festive Winter Willow" in the same colours the yellow wasn't quite right but with some yellow glitter it was perfect! I cut round the circles for a but of extra detail then mounted this on some black bling, I also punched a hole in each side and thread some lovely black ribbon through. Cut of the image with my new label nestie added a yellow flower with a small rose in the middle with some more of the yellow glitter, punched out some foliage and to finish off a craftwork sentiment!!!

Thursdays Scrap class!!!

Another page down for my sister's pressie!!

This was Thursday nights class at the Craft Den, we where all given the same papers and then we decided how we would put them onto the main backing papers. They all ended up so different this is Joe's and Kathryn's as you can see they are all fab!!

We used the Bo-Bunny flutterby papers, punches and the pearl pen loved this as there was already a beautiful spotted flourish which I have used the pen on to make it more 3d. The picture is my Sister on holiday with our parents in 1992.

Peter Pan

Went to the Craft Den last night for class and we where using the copics so I made this birthday card for my friends little boy's 4th Birthday!! She asked for Peter Pan or Ben Ten!!! I said I'd stick to Peter Pan as I had no idea who Ben Ten is!!!

Lorenzo loves watching Peter Pan and tries to fly just like him all around the house!!

All the papers, copics and little star gems are from the Craft Den the Peter Pan stamps where a bargain purchase from E-bay xx

Techniques night at the Craft Den

We had a techniques night last Wednesday at the Craft Den.

Always love using the distressed inks but I can never get the crackle paint to look right!! Any way Lynne showed us how to do it and I must admit I was really impressed!!! (well when it was done that is!!! lol) All products used where Tim Holt's distressed inks, crackle paints and stamps.

Thought I would finish it off tonight so I have just had another go with the sewing machine (don't think it looks too bad) and added a bit of metal xx

Sleeping Beauty xx

Just had to show you this card!! Kerry my niece gave me this images to use, it's just beautiful I just adore Angels, Fairy's & Cherub's so this one I just had to colour (which I have in all different colours)

I have used this one in the lovely browns coloured in with copics and added a little bit of glamour dust and I have put it together with Black Market papers from Lynne's, I have mounted it onto some nesties in bazzil and the opposite side of the main paper. I have used the pearl pen again!!! to do the flourish at the side and around the scalloped edge added some flowers a prima butterfly & sentiment.xx

On a roll!!

I'm well on my way (not)!!

This page is with Bo Bunny "Kitchen Spice". We did a teared effect on the main paper and matted it on to Bazzil, inked the edges and did a ripped corner effect. We cut out loads of different flowers from the paper it's self and by using the punches I added gems to the centre's. We matted the photo on more of the spiced kitchen paper and did the border on toning bazzil then added the piece of beautiful lace. The pearl pen came out again to put the finishing touch to the page.

A bit of catching up!!

When I realised how many week's (day's I have to do my sister's scrap book in, out came my back page's) I'm quite lucky really as on a Thursday night at the Craft Den it's really busy and I often give up my seat and help Lynne.

These layouts are from those night's as I still go home with the full kit to make one anyway!! The first layout is with the new Delilah papers and bazzil plus loads of punched flowers plus some cut out from the papers. We cut out the large flower from the colour my world templates and faux stitched the edge then added the flowers some gems and a beautiful school photo of Tracey it matches beautifully xx

The second is with another Bo Bunny collection "Gypsy" love the richness of these colours. We did a bit of tearing and a punched border down the side cut out the beautiful large flower and the cut it in to to frame the picture. Lynne had done the fab flourish from another template from colour my world which is "totally swirls" a must for these lovely pearl flourishes. The picture was of my sister, mum & me on New Years Eve 1992!! xx

I have a little bet on with Allan at the moment as he think's I won't complete this for xmas!!! lol I have asked for a pink expression for xmas if I do but he said it's was not worth that much xx (I will have to work on him)

The waiting is over!!

Whiff of joy!! My favourite's are in stock at the Craft Den!! I have been on tender hooks for the last few weeks waiting for these, just love them all.

I have been colouring in this afternoon but thought I'd show you one of my finished cards. It's Henry with his Xmas bauble. Coloured the image in copics and added some stickles and the pearl pen for the fur on his hat. I have used Bo Bunny papers from the new "Tis the Season" range along with some bazzil and for the little border I used a Martha Stewart punch. Wrapped the papers in tulle netting now available from Lynne and a snowflake charm & bell fixed with a matching bo bunny brad.

Jumping flowers

Another fab layout by Lynne (well except for the stressful flowers) This little flower caused us all such a headache!! we had a strip of paper which we had to fold to concertina it then bend it round into the circle and stick!! easy well that's what we all thought!! lol xx after re-sticking and even putting it under a punch to weigh it down it had to go along to the casualty department to be sorted!! finally got it stuck down or so I thought!! Any way with a bit of glossy accents last night I finally managed to make it "stay".

Added some stickles to the flowers and a bit of hessian to the back of the picture and the beautiful butterfly which I ended up spraying with glimmer mists!! At last finished!!!

Wow Orange & Black

Another great Scrap booking class last night at the craft den!! I don't know how she keeps coming up with all these fabulous pages but she does!! She is so creative xx

Last night we did this fabulous orange & black layout!! We used BM onion gravy paper for the background which we stamped tim holts background stamps onto in Spiced Orange. We then cut out a frame from the bo bunny love shack range and mounted it onto the onion gravy (lol) the next step was to stamp another of tims background stamps this time in Brown stazon onto each corner. After this we stamped this beautiful prima swirl on the top and side and yes you have guessed it the pearl pen!!

With all the left over papers we made these beautiful flowers and added the pearl pen to the centre's. This is my sister with our late grandparents I am trying to put a book together for Christmas (but won't be telling anyone yet in case I don't get it finished)

These stamps are just fab!!! and will be shortly stocked at the craft den!!!

Love the colours yellow & black together!! I had coloured my image in with copics then couldn't find papers to match in my stash so I have used bazzil in both colours.
