Treasure Time...

I've got a class coming upon Saturday 3 May at The Craft Barn and we're going to be decorating these little treasure boxes:


They use the new Lynne Perrella stamps plus various techniques including Gelatos on wood, stamping on tissue paper, using Grunge Paste etc. 
There are still a couple of places left, so if you fancy coming along for a fun day of crafting, just contact them at The Craft Barn, Tel: 0844 800 8551 or 01737 822961.

Extravaganza excitement....

Now, I know you might think it's a long way off, but for those of us demoing and taking classes, The Craft Barn Extravaganza is getting closer and closer!
I'm demoing on the Saturday and Sunday and also, for the very first time, taking a Master Class, which I'm very excited about. This is what we're going to be decorating:



I'm planning on using the latest Lynne Perrella stamps, Fresco paints, real copper metal and some chipboard pieces from Tando that Di's making up especially. This is a big project and going to be great fun as well as functional, so if you fancy coming along, my class is on the Friday 6th June.
When I've actually made the project, I'll post a (very) sneak peek.

Thanks for looking!

Whoops! I'm late...

with my blog post for PaperArtsy! Here's a sneak peek of what I did this time with Darcy's stamps:


Don't fall off your chair - I've used muted colours! That was deliberate - I wanted to show how these stamps suit all styles, so get out your papers, brads and ribbons and have a go!

Thanks for looking!

Craft barn Demo

Had a lovely time on Saturday demoing at the Craft Barn. Many thanks to all who came along and for putting up with all my chatter!
Here's some of the stuff I made using Darcy stamps and the gorgeous Marion Smith papers:




I've got a class on Saturday 19th using the Darcy stamps again - we're going to make a tag book and box:


It should be a fun day, so come along and join us if you fancy it.

Delectable Darcy Stamps...

I'm demoing with these on Saturday at The Craft Barn. I've tried to show how to create different looks using papers, Distress Stains and metal. Here's a sneak peek:




As you can see there's lots of different looks you can create. So, do come along and join me if you can. 
You can also see Jane Gill and Carole Cockbain demoing as well so should be a good day.

Ring, ring, ring ....

on the telephone.
Here's a card I made using one of the new chunky tag stamps from Crafty Individuals:


Quite subtle colours for me! I've layered the tag onto a piece of patterned paper that's been stencilled over and then onto more patterened paper (Prima, I think!). Here's a couple of close-ups:
