Baby Boy Card

My brother and sister in law have just had their first child so I'm an auntie again! Yippee! Baby Jago (Cornish version of James) is a real cutie and I made his mum and dad this card. I don't know when I'll get to meet my new nephew as they live a long way away but I am looking forward to baby cuddles! The image is a stamp that I did in black ink but I stamped it first on scrap paper and then stamped a second time for my card so it was grey rather than black. Much softer for a baby card. It is coloured with alcohol markers. Nice and easy but very effective.

March Crop Class Pages

Well apart from the gloves I took for the ladies to protect their fingers which leaked so the ladies ended up with red fingers we had a great class. The class was all about printed transparencies and some of the ways they can be used. Here is my page and some of the ladies pages from the crop. I didn't manage to photograph everyone's and they were hard to photograph as the lights kept reflecting off the transparencies. Hopefully you get a good idea of what we did! If you would like a class kit for this class or one of our other classes do get in touch.

March Crop Class Sneak Peek

I am sitting here typing with dyed red inky fingers! What have I been doing? Preparing for the crop class on Saturday in Fareham, Hampshire. I'll have to sort some gloves to protect the ladies hands methinks!

Here is a sneak peek of the class...

So Cute January 2015 Class Page

Wow! We had 15 for the class at the crop and seeing as usually the number is 8-10 it was busy. The ladies were extremely patient waiting for the equipment so thank you so much for that ladies. The technique for the class was using the new Tim Holtz spritzer through a 12"x12" stencil. The effect was lovely and has lots of possibilities for being adapted. First up is my page and after that you'll find the ladies pages (well those that I managed to catch on camera).
