Festive Fireplace ....

Last weekend I taught a class. It is a format that has been used before where you make 5,4,3,2,1 cards. 5 easy, 4 a little harder and so on. The class went really well, and I was happy in the end although I struggled with some ideas for this set :) I love that it has coordinating dies so all the little "accessories" can be cut out uniformly, and I am going to try and use it in some other formats, for instance new home, or birthdays of some sort .... watch this space :)

This fancy easel fold card was designed by my friend at The Craft Spa

Happy Scenes ....

This has to be my favourite set from this years seasonal, I do love trees so perhaps that was the attraction, but also the theme through the window is something I like in Scrapbooking. These cards were so easy to design because I think it's easy to showcase something that you love yourself, and I love the papers and embossing folders too.

Halloween part 2 ....

Well it is a little after the event but as you can still order the lovely seasonal Halloween products from Stampin Up, why not ..... here's a further layout I have made using the gorgeous Happy Haunting designer papers and Spider Web doilies. Again I meant to cut a title from the black glimmer paper, but it will be added later.

 We had a fabulous Halloween party at home, and I put some of my ermm (clears throat) crafting skills to play in helping my hubby make this boat. it was a surprise for our guests and the children that attended, and went down really well. I did say to people "I made a boat this week in all the spare time I have" lol
