A glimpse of what's to come.

Well hello ladies,

A little glimpse of the papers we are going to be using for the October class. They are from the Paper Girl line from The Girl's Paperie. I think you will agree that this is an absolutely gorgeous line. So from this you can assume that the class will be very pink and girlie - I am going to use one of my wedding photos.

I will post some sneaky peeks of the class next week and you will be able to get a better idea of what photo you would like to bring - only one 4 x 6 portrait photo needed.

Stunning us in September

What a wonderful day we had yesterday! We all knew that Ann's classes would be stunning but stunning does not do them adequate justice! They were awesome.

For the first one the only cutting we had to do was to take the decorative edge from the bottom of the Sassafras Lass paper and that was it. The whole page was based on arranging your photos on the page and then sewing between the photos with coloured thread which had been skillfully matched, by Ann, to the printed stitching on the paper. We then added the stickers and die cut shapes to the available spaces and there we have it - a beautiful page.

The second one utilised both sides of another piece of Sassafras Lass paper and the border strips from both pieces that were in the kit. We also used a couple of the stickers that we had reserved from the sticker sheet and some die cut flowers. Another stunning page created in no time at all. Notice those cute little ladybugs on both of the pages. As a little extra Ann also showed us how to make a cute little notebook with the remaining bits and pieces from the kit.

Thanks to the continued support and sponsorship by Mel and Jill at ATDML we were able to make 2 los and a little project for £5.00 - amazing value.

Another surprise was Mel from ATDML arriving at the crop with my supplies for next month's class - I can honestly say that the papers are more beautiful in real life than I had ever imagined - so I had better get on designing my page and getting the sneak peeks ready for next month.

ATDML have the Indie Girl papers and stickers that were used for Ann's page, on their website if you've been inspired by Ann's class, and would like to buy some .

Keep an eye on the blog as once I have all my supplies I will get a photo of them up so you can decide which photo to use.

Thank you ladies for such a wonderful day and we both appreciate how much fun everyone makes our crop.

Not Long Now

No, it's not long now until our next crop and the lovely Ann has sent us a sneak peak of each of her 2 los she is going to teach.

Ann has asked that you bring a needle, large enough to take DMC thread if possible.

See you on Saturday and safe journey.
