May's Class

Well I'm back from a VERY wet holiday and we're finally emerging from our quarantine after acquiring a horrendous tummy bug while away!  2 babies with d&v is no joke, the mere sound of a cough has me running for a bowl and the washing....oh my goodness!  It's relentless.  Anyhoo, enough whinging. 

First things first I have had to reschedule the date.  The hall is being closed for deep cleaning on the 10th May and so I've had no choice but to move the date to Thursday 31st May. 

On to more exciting things; the book itself.  Mine is not as decorated as you guys will be able to make it.  This kit, like the last, is crammed full of exciting for you to be able to decorate it to within an inch of it's life. 

To complete it you will need your usual scrapping tools, brown ink and a ton of glue (I have used a combination of pva and double sided tape).

Looking forward to the 31st, see you all then :-)

Look at these...

Here are some of the books created at the April class:
Carole has swapped one paper and her book has taken on a whole new look
 I love the crisp look that Alison has created by using these two patterns together
 Judy has also personalised her book by changing one of the patterns
Fiona has tailored her book with the use of a different embellishment on the front panel

Thanks for sharing ladies.  It's lovely to see just how everyone has chosen to use their kit and to be able to share that with everyone in blog land.

What a great night!

I must apologise for the delay in writing this post.  Thursday seems a long time ago now but the whole lead up and then the night itself totally wiped me out and the weekend has come and gone in a flash and I haven't stopped to write about it.
I've been planning and prepping for thursday's class for well over 2 months now.  Ensuring that everything was just right.  I had a few little hiccups (a clashing audiology appointment and a crappy printer to mention a few) but on the whole the evening went very smoothly.
The classroom was a little cosy but it all added to the buzzing atmosphere of everyone busily crafting their little hearts out.  It was so nice to teach in that environment.
I just wanted to thank everyone that turned up, your support is very much appreciated, and to ask that when you complete your albums, if you're able to take a quick photo of it and email it to me, I'd love to post your finished albums on the blog for everyone to look at.

email photos to:

My next class will take place on Thursday 10th May, 6pm til 9pm at the Graig Community Hall in Bassaleg, Newport.   This class will be using the beautiful Echo Park This & That Graceful collection and we will again be creating a mini book.  I will post photos shortly.
