Wednesdays Work shop!!

Hey all just a short post i have a work shop on Wednesday, we are making a small plaque with a paper rose. i think i have a obsession with MDF!!!

but these wall plaques are so nice to make and look really lovely when they are finished they make great gifts!!!

here is the finished plaque i have made a paper rose and embossed the edges with cosmic shimmer gold. with a butterfly from primark it was a necklace.

the next card is one i made for my very good friend it was her birthday last weekend, it is the first easel card i have made and it came out really good, i have used a whiff of joy stamp click on the link on my side bar and have a look at hat they have to offer!!

Next Work Shop!!

Hey all, so i thought i would post what i have planned for my net work shop, it is a wall hanging with a picture or poem on, i chose a picture of my boys with a saying under neath.

the project is on a 12 x 12 piece of MDF. i have painted it with a tester pot of blue paint and added some cosmic shimmer paint to it, i have also sanded at parts of the base coat to add a distressed/old look.

once the the Base was ready i stamped a swirl pattern on it from the Mini Swirl plate from Particraft, with faded jean distress ink.

i then stamped some thistle images in faded jean and black archival. the i distressed around the edge in broken china & Faded Jean distress ink & added a moth stamp to the top of the board.

I then made 3 paper rose 's pop over to Maria's blog for a great easy to follow tutorial of how to make them!

the next image is another board i have decorated but have not yet chosen a image to put on it but i have decorated it in the same way but have used the new wild flowers from Particraft.

i would love to know what you think.

but for now keep crafting

Just time for a Quick post

Ok So time for a quick post before i have to leave for work, yesterday we went to a Friends wedding. i made their menu's (there is a picture on my last post) any way so as i used my MS butterfly on them i thought i would keep the theme going on their card and i also made a matching candle.

i used my new stamp from Lilly of the Valley it so lovely i think i could use this over and over again.

i have used the same image on my candle and put the bride & grooms names and wedding date on it i have also put a pearl swirl either side of the wording,once the candle was done i made a box for it i left it quite plain just putting 2 butterflies on it with gems.

Hope you like it. for now keep crafting

Could Possibly Be.......

The longest post !! i have not found the time to post since January that's really bad i know! i have had so many things to do so where to start!! I have had a few workshops and 3 wedding orders & Ally pally first here are some of the wedding stationary i have done there is a table plan, place cards with a menu on the back and wedding invites.

Wedding Plan

Place cards & Menu

Wedding invites

ok so now to my work shops i have photo's from 3 of them to share with you . so in February we made treasure boxes only a few people managed to attend but we still had fun!!

in March we decorated candles and tubes and had a great turn out we had 14 people attend and had some really good projects!1 some of the lady's who attended have never crafted before so it's a real achievement for them to be able to create something like this have a look at the photo to see for your self!!

so for the most resent work shop (last weekend) we made a draw set out of card and patterned paper and again only a few managed to attend but had some really great finished project!! considering each person had the same kit to start with the finished projects all different!!

so hopefully your still with me and not nodded off yet!! the last bit of new to update you on is ally pally it was 2 weekends ago and we had a blast!! i was demoing UTE (ultra thick embossing powder) i was a bit nervous but by the end of the weekend i did not want to stop. i never quite realised what a great feeling it was for people to watch and enjoy what your demoing and by the last day we had nearly sold out!! below is a picture of some of the samples i made and my favorite ones.

Thank you some much for stopping by and looking at my work and i will try and keep you updated a bit more but for now

just a little bit!!!

OK so Christmas has been and gone it seems to just fly bye!! it must be as i have got older when i was small it seemed to last forever!!

The snow has gone but i am still struggling to find time to craft firstly because my craft room was our garage and has been converted and although it is insulated it still is sooooo cold out there and just the warmth of in doors makes me want to stay in there all the more!!!

So before Christmas i did my first work shop and it went really well. as you can see from the photo's below!!

We made a 5 x 5 mini scrap book and the finished project were great.

Ok so this Saturday 16th January is my next work shop we are making a notelet set with 4 matching cards all in black & white, i will post some pictures of the finished project and pictures from the workshop on Saturday.

well that's pretty much it for now but i just wanted to show you a card i managed to make once all the kits were made for Saturdays work shop.

This is a stamp from Wiff of joy i brought i last September but has only just got around to using it. there is a link on the side bar so go have a look at there great stamps.

Keep Crafting
