Using scraps

Hope everyone had a great bank holiday weekend, I finally managed to get a start on sorting the garden and managed to find a little time in my craft room.

Here is the layout I created with the left overs from my last monthly kit and canvas class. Everything is from the Carta Bella Beautiful Moments collection and I used the Tim Holtz Tattered floral garland die again to make the flowers.

Here's the mini book the girls did in class yesterday afternoon, designed and taught by Emma from Imagine That Papercrafts in Upminster.

Back soon with another layout I did using the scraps from the canvas class and my last kit.

Canvas class

Today I had my first all day class with Emma from Imagine that papercrafts in Upminster. This morning I taught this canvas project. A slight twist in that we used the reverse of the canvas instead of the front. The papers are Carta Bella Beautiful Moments, the metal plate is from Tim Holtz and we covered it with some paperartsy paint and wiped the excess off. The flowers are from the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland Sizzlet die, butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and the corner punch is from EK Success. Inside the plate is a Tim Holtz ticket. Here's some close up pictures of the flowers and the ornate plate. The edges of all the papers have also been dry painted with the Paperartsy Snowflake chalk paint.

I will post a few pictures tomorrow of the mini book Emma taught in the afternoon.
Enjoy the bank holiday weekend...fingers crossed no more rain tomorrow I want to start work on the garden!!

August kit...Carta Bella

Re-started my classes this month after moving, for this kit we used the papers etc from Carta Bella Beautiful Moments range. I am loving the papers this new company are producing.  The second layout is made with the left overs and the title cut on the Storybook cricut cartridge.

I am using the same range for a canvas class next week and I have already made another layout with the bits and pieces I had left from these layouts and the canvas. Just got to stick it all down but unpacking more boxes keeps getting in the way..lol!! I am pleased though I am keeping to my promise of using all my leftovers up and not putting them in a bag to use at a later date and not!!

Details of the all day class which includes the canvas are on my side bar, I still have some spaces left if you fancy a fun day out playing with paper and ink etc.
