Aprils class kit

Had a great class today using this months kit.....the papers and die cuts are all from the Loire Valley range from Kaisercraft.  In the kit there is enough papers etc to do a double layout and a single, you get 6 sheets of double sided papers, 2 bazzill , chipboard die cuts in a great handy zipper case for you to use again for something else and some black droplets.  I do have some kits left they are £9.00 not inc p&p and come with full instructions for both layouts.  Email me if you are interested.....I do a kit each month if you would like to be informed about what each months kit is, I can add you to my mailing list....they are usually around the £8/9 per kit.

Basic Grey Kioshi

Due to me not having the correct photos for a class at my retreat I ended up taking the kit and doing something myself. I really like this collection from Basic Grey...was not to sure at first but its lovely subtle colours and works well with black and white photos. I took some of the elements from the layout the class did, like stitching the hearts together and mounting the flower on cardstock in the top page, the rest of the design is my adaption as my photos were wrong orientation as well.
Hope you having the lovely weather like we are here, back at the weekend with this month class layout....I still have spaces on Saturday {details on side bar} or spare kits if you cant make it.

Cosmic Shimmer

Another class layout from my retreat that used Cosmic Shimmer's. Must admit I have quite a few of these bottles in my craft room that have never been touched but now I am looking forward to having a play!! They were sprayed through a May Arts template and I used a very light colour first then went over it with the blue/green colour and finshed off with the bronze colour. I felt it needed a simple layout on top so I just added some of the lovely Prima vines and a Prima stamp for the journaling. The title is done with some black glitter thickers.
Have a great weekend!

Catching up!

Apologies for lack of posts but decorating and general "life" has gotten in the way which is why I was so glad to finally getaway to a scrapbooking retreat last weekend. I went with the intention of completing kits/layouts that have been needing to be done for years....hence some very old! I also had some classes whilst I was there which was great, they are almost all completed but just need photos etc so thats my next job. Over the next few days I will post the ones that are all done and dusted and ready for their albums.

The first layout I did for a sketch challenge at the uses SEI Grandmas kitchen. The second layout is one of my own from the rest of the kit. These papers are so old its not true but I still love it and thankfully even after 2 layouts I still have some left!!

If you are coming to my next class on saturday week, then by tonight I will have the photos sizes for you. I have posted a picture on the side bar of the papers we are using for you to get an idea on colours.
