Craft Barn Vintage Heaven class...

Well, this was yesterday up at the Craft Barn in Lingfield and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, so I hope everyone there enjoyed what I did!
Haven't really taught many classes before, so I just went along and did my thing!
The ladies were lovely and I was really pleased that they all did different variations of the basic project, choosing combinations of colours that they liked and mixing and matching the various stamps and embellishments etc.
Here are pics of the works in progress about halfway through (in no particular order):


I haven't put names to them as I know I'll get in a muddle!
We were using Crafty Individual stamps, Tando Creative chipboard and tissue paper with Distress inkpads and stains - all available from the Craft Barn.

Thanks for looking and thanks for making my first class such fun!


PS The Craft Barn's got some fab new charm embellishments - fantastic range and well priced.

Craft Barn Class

I'm teaching a class at the Craft Barn on Sunday using Crafty Individuals stamps, a wooden house thermometer, tissue paper, Tando Chipboard and lots of inky, painty stuff! Here's a picture of the more masculine version (I've made two so you get a choice, but forgot to photograph the other one!) - sorry it's a bit skew-whiff:

Really looking forward to it.

Thanks for looking!

Crafty Individuals - another winged thing...

Here's another sample for the Crafty Individuals blog challenge!

It uses: Crafty Individuals Stamps: Birds and Music CI-309;Butterfly CI-231; Text 'Fly' CI-329; Scroll Corner CI-184
Tiny scrap of some of the new papers for background and butterflies.
The jewellery part is something I picked up somewhere - a clear plastic faceted pendant with the pearly bit. Held together with Ranger silver Memory Foil. Oh, and the wings were cheap earrings!

Thanks for looking!

A Little bit of Magic...

Here's a card I've made for the Happy Daze DT using Artistic Outpost stamps and Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus papers:

I've turned the little girl into a witch by adding a witch's hat. The frame is stamped onto purple Hocus Pocus paper and edged in bronze paint that is heated to make it bubble. The scroll is stamped all round the edge of the card and coloured with pencils. The word 'BOO' is taken from the Book quote - I've just cut off the last letter!

Stamps used:
Little girl and frame: Artistic Outpost: My Favourite Book
Border Scroll: Artistic Outpost: Whimsical Melange
