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.
