Botanical Butterfly, designer series papers ....

Finally had some time to work with these papers over the weekend, here is my first offering, a scrapbook layout with a hidden photo under the flap, some embellishments are from my stash, and I have used some old school Stampin Up punches, I absolutely love the gorgeous blue sheet of paper in this collection, but haven't actually used it yet!

Stacking Rings Class ....

Had a great evening at Hello Crafter in Saltaire last night. We had a three hour class to make silver stacking rings. Firstly we started by making a copper practice ring, and then we made three silver rings from silver wire. we curved it into a ring shape (although mine looked like a kidney bean) soldered it, put it on a ring mandrel and hammered it into a proper ring shape, and used the anvil to hammer it flat. Next we pickled all the bits off in a light acid, then we decorated them with a pattern and finally they were polished (and oxidized if you wanted to), such a brilliant class with fantastic results.

Loving these papers, I've made this layout as  a baby page, but the backs of the papers are so different and i will be able to produce something completely different from them ....
