Gypsy Caravan Mini Album

Nearly 2013 already and I have only just finished my project. Things have been quiet over Christmas as we have all been ill.......Mum is alot better now, Bob is just in the full throws of it and me, I feel as though my asthma will never go away.
However I have had some time to just sit and work on some projects. The "Gone Camping" kit will be back up on sale soon and the "Heritage Album" - Month 4 should be ready for next weekend. The "3 Books in a Box" workshop will go ahead next Saturday but I may bring the start time forward to 9.00am as there will be alot to get through.
The Gypsy Caravan Mini Album was a really great project to do....every last bit!! This is sheer genius from Laura Denison, Seattle, USA
The workshop will be on Saturday 2nd February and will have limited places (if needs be we will run an extra workshop) Please book by 26th January so the patterns can be ordered and the kits put together.
Paper collection is Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe
A full supply list will be with the patterns.

Heritage Album Month 3

Month 3 of the heritage album workshop on Saturday was male orientated, so I decided to use this for my great grandfather, the only picture I have of him. The paper range "For Father" suited this with the subtle blues, greys and browns.
The clock faces and postage stamps were applied with glossy accents. The Imaginarium chipboard was tripple embossed to give a glossy finish. The two flowers at the bottom were punched out of the remaining paper, layered up and the tips dipped into silver glitter.



Supply list:
Pion Design double sided papers - For Father: Old Cars, Money, Pocket Watch, Man's Suit and Cut out sheet
Kanban - cardstock
Imaginarium Designs - chipboard clockface
Prima Marketing - flowers
Bella - brads
Ranger Inkesentials - glossy accents

Christmas wreaths, candles and decorations

What fun we had last craft day with Samantha demonstrating how to decorate all sizes of candles. They look great placed in the centre of Christmas rings for a stunning table decoration.
