Demo day @ Anglesey for Crafter's companion....

Good morning all and welcome to a beautiful Sunday :-)

Yesterday I was over on lovely Anglesey @ Gaerwen demonstrating for Crafter's.

We were showcasing the gorgeous Vintage range - fab embossing folders and papers, and the Create a Card dies so here are a couple of samples for you....

This card used the new vintage paper pack and a paper piecing technique from the lovely Hels Sheridan (check out her awesome bloggy place HERE) to create a background and then added this Angelica stamp which was over embossed with the Hessian folder

This second sample uses the Decadent Rose folder with gilding wax and the heart from the Romance create a card die - both available HERE

I hope you like these makes

Have a great Sunday :-) and thanks for stopping by....

Crafty cheers for now

Eileen's class results.......

Goodness me......where has this week gone???

Thursday already!!

Anyway as I am still on catch up from last weekend's antics!! So today I am sharing my makes from Eileen Godwin's Rochester workshop.

I am so lucky to be able to call this uber talented lady a friend.....and what's more there was a whole host of my dearest and closest crafty buddies there. Much merriment n collapsing of tables mid project and "thieving" n eating of naughty cake!! We had a wonderful day!!!

This was originally done with butterflies but as I had this running horse stamp in my kit I fancied a change......

Then this amazing card was made using Stampendous Jumbo stamps.....

Check out the full class results ..... HERE

Thank you for stopping by

Oak House Studios Challenge.....

Good Morning all!!!

So as I am catching up I thought I better tell you about our fantastic June challenge over at Oak House Studio!!

This month we are feeling Blue......the Blue summer skies, the crystal blue seas....(ok ok ok I have been looking at the holiday brochures ready for next year's roadtrip and not out the window!!!) 
So as many of you know I have a slight obsession with all the things (well certain things ;-) ) Hawaii at the I took my inspiration from there.....

I have used Navy, Sea Blue and Powder Blue Pigment Inks on these two and kept it nice and simple with the layering. The inks are available here and the stamps are the Mountain Ash, the Harlequin Pattern and Script sentiments

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning a fabulous £40 OHS vouchers is grab yourself some OHS goodies and get all Bluesey!!! 

Post your blog link or creation on the Oak House studio FB page here so we can see you wonderful work!!

Good luck!!
