It's getting closer!

Soon, very soon but not soon enough for some of us, it will be our next little gathering and we are really excited about the class Ann is going to teach. She has promised us 2 los and a little project for our September class and is going to be using the Indie Girl range from Sassafras Lass. You can see how gorgeous it is and so suitable for scrapping both boy and girl pages!

For the first lo you will need 4 (3in x 3in) photos and for the second 1 or 2 (6in x 4in portrait) photographs.

We hope to get some sneaky peeks of the class up before the crop so keep an eye on the blog.

Painting The Roses Red

Apologies for the late post! The other Karen has been really busy so I have taken over this post for her.

We had a fabulous day on Saturday making our mini books from scratch. Cutting the covers, sewing in the pages getting sticky with bookbinding tape, punching, stamping and painting to our little hearts content. As promised, the mini book, designed by Karen C, did not disappoint. The internal pages were made from pages of an Alice In Wonderland book and all the stamps and embellishments were Alice themed. It was a fabulous kit and an absolute bargain for the price. Everyone went home with the majority of their books finished.

For the ladies who haven't gotten around to finishing their books and for anyone who would like to drool over Karen's project below are 32 (sorry for the huge number but I photographed each page as a single page and not as a double - durrrrr) photos from the book.

A huge thanks to Elsie Flannigan for allowing us to use her Alice in Wonderland paper dolls.

Next month's class is well on the way and we will be back later in the month with some sneak peaks of the papers being used and little tasters of the project Ann is making.
