I think we are spoiling you!

We have updated our class list with the classes for the remainder of this year and I hope you are all as excited as we are.

August - Karen Cole's awesome mini (I had a sneak preview today and I am completely blown away with what she has in store for us - this is a class you should definitely not miss!)

September - Ann Freeman, who makes the most amazing projects and pages have a look on her blog here.

October - it's little old me with a piece of home decor.

November - Wendy McKee. Wendy makes the most beautiful cards, pages, home decor items and many other beautiful paper based projects. Her blog is here, well worth a look.

December - A Christmas Extravaganza with an extended crop and three, yes you read that correctly, three classes with Mel Hand, Debbie Jewell and our very own Karen Cole. We are hoping that Mel will bring the shop along again so there will be an opportunity to treat yourself to an early Christmas present.

So we are half way through July already and our August crop will be upon us before we know it - not a moment too soon for me, I can hardly wait!

What A Wonderful Day We Had

Firstly, apologies for not blogging sooner but real life got in the way!

A huge thank you to Laura Buckingham for teaching our awesome class this month. The papers were from the Delovely range and the colours so bright and summery.

The class technique was layering and using everyday products from stationary stores.

We used staples, luggage labels and tiny pricing labels. There was lovely Japanese tape and lots of border punches and we even did a little hand stitching.

Everyone took the class and we were all delighted with the results. It was so nice to be told that our classes are so good because the pace of teaching does not put any undue pressure on the participants, therefore making for a relaxing afternoon.

I am sure you will agree that the results were stunning - so a huge thank you to Laura.

The winners of this months prizes are:-

Denise - a set of Stamping Up stamps.

Naomi - the Papermaze voucher

Sandie - a Shimelle class pass.

I am looking forward to next month's crop already and eagerly anticipating the mini book that Karen C is teaching. Anyone who knows her will know that she makes awesome minis and I promise you this one will be a bumper kit which will not disappoint!

Photo Info

Hello again ladies - only 3 (well 4 if you count today) more days till the crop and we are fizzing and ready to rumble! Laura says you need two 6 x 4 (15cm x 10cm) photos for her class. They can be portrait or landscape but not a mix - either two portrait or two landscape.

We are so excited about this class as the gorgeous papers combined with Laura's unique style is sure to mean we will be making an absolutely fablous page.

See you on Saturday xxx
