Welcome to Victoria Gardens

We are getting closer to the next Eclectic Keepsakes crop on the 8th October and we are delighted to have Sue Plampton teaching a technique class using Tim Holtz inks and stamps. I cannot describe the beautiful projects she produces and will try to persuade her to let me photograph a couple to put on the blog next week. So this is the kit she is going to work her magic on,

it uses a selection of papers from Echo Park's Victoria Garden range and we will have available a selection of ink pads in coordinating colours.

I, for one, cannot wait to learn some new and exciting techniques and am working up to the trauma of getting my hands all inky!

I will be back on Sunday with some sneaky peeks of the class and the photo size.

See you soon.

Variations on a Theme

Well what can I say, the class by Ann went down a storm and we all loved our pages.

It always amazes me how you ladies take an idea and run with it. Ann loves it when she gives you the basis of a page and you take it up and 'freestyle it'. So with no further ado here are the variations on the theme. The first two pages are Ann's pages and the rest are from our talented croppers.

What a fantastic day we all had and I am so looking forward to next month's class by Sue - a technique class using lots of stamping, inking, and all sorts of messy stuff !

The Count Down

Well ladies, the count down has begun. Just over a week until the next crop and the class being taught by Ann. I can promise you is it a stunner and just to get you excited here is a little peep at what to expect.

Photo requirements for the two pages are a 6 x 4 portrait for layout one (colour or black and white) and a 7 x 5 landscape (sepia) photo for layout 2.

Have a lovely week and see you on the 10th.
