This week has flown by - it only seems like 5 minutes since it was last Saturday and I was crossing the bridge over to Wales.
I had the pleasure of spending the day with the lovely ladies in Chepstow - and what a day it was - I'll certainly not forget this wonderful bunch of scrappers - they made me feel so very welcomed and at home amongst them all. If you live around that area and scrap - then you really should pay them a visit sometime - what a great group they are.
The classes went down well - I taught a double page layout using product from Kasier Craft - with the proceeds of the sale of this kit going to BreakThrough Breast Cancer Charity - a charity which is very close to my heart - the amazing ladies at Chepstow helped me to raise £330 for this worthwhile cause - so a big THANK YOU ladies .x.
With the remaining pieces left in the kit I shared how to make a quick 6x4 mini book.
My second class was a single page layout using the ever so lovely Paper Crush from Sassafras.
With kits bursting at the seams - after the class had finished I also shared an additional 3 pages which could be created using the leftovers from the kit - I love to use up every last scrap and can't bear to throw anything away :)
One of the additional layouts I created appeared over on the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ blog - I am honoured to have been recently invited to join their DT - I am really looking forward to creating alongside so many of my favourite designers over the coming year - do check out the blog as its packed full of inspirational tips and techniques.
To create the page I simply cut a 9 x 2.5 inch strip of patterned paper and fixed it horizontally across the page - I then layered up and overlapped some of the leftover Sassafras Journal Stickers - the stickers had been applied to cardstock beforehand and were cut out.
I added a strip of Sassafras Banner Stickers along the bottom of my paper strip - using 3d Foam Squares by SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ I positioned another border strip over the top - another Sassafras border sits beneath the photograph and again this was attached using 3d Foam Squares - Sassafras Sweet Treat Stickers were applied to cardstock and cut out before being applied to he page using 3d Foam Squares.
Finally to finish the page I added one of my favourite all time scrapbooking products - a Sassafras Vintage Brooch.
Family life has been a little busy this past week - Hubs is recovering slowly from his last operation - he said last night that he feels as if he makes a huge step forward in his recovery - and then after the operations - a giant step backwards - but its all part of the process to rebuild his leg - and we know it going to take time - thanks to everyone who has mailed or called this past week to check I was OK - I am alive and kicking just busy with the guys on half term, scrapping, classes, nursing Hubs and trying my best to be Super Woman! LOL!
I leave you with a sneak of my layout for Pencil Lines - which goes live tomorrw at 8pm GMT - the layout is for a friend - she is amazingly gifted and used her gift this past week to really help Hubs.....but that's news to be shared another time.
Thanks for dropping by - have a great weekend - and enjoy the sunshine :)
