I like scrapbooking as well as card-making, but have so far only completed a couple of pages. I keep taking photo's and planning the pages in my head, but actually getting them onto the page is not happening due to time constraints... anyway, I just thought I'd show you a couple of pages I've made.
The first one is some photos of my family at my Grandparents house in 1985, I made this one not long after my Gran died last year. The second is my daughter making jelly on her birthday last year.

I cut the circle and heart-shaped frames with my Fiskars shape-cutter, and hand-cut the scalloped edges. The butterfly is a stamp from PartiCraft.

There are still some places left on the beginners workshops I'm running in September, so email me if you are interested!

New workshops!

Today is the first day of term, so my eldest daughter has started high school, scary thought! My youngest enjoyed going back to nursery this morning, and my son still says school is boring...

I have now got around to organisng some workshops - so I'm holding a series of 4 workshops in card-making for beginners, in September.

The workshops will be from 9.30 till 11 am on wednesday mornings (September 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd) in Cumbernauld, cost £6 per workshop. Please email me if you are interested in coming.
I made a couple of cards last week, which I thought I'd show you - the first was for my husband's cousin, who has just had her first baby, and the second for friends wedding anniversary. As always, please let me know what you think :-)

Impromptu card-making workshop!

While we were up in Tayvallich, we discovered that one of the children's art categories at the annual Flower Show was for a children's birthday card - so my kids got busy making cards one afternoon, and my cousin, K, joined in. My youngest, B, made an ice cream van card, with the new "create-a-scene" seaside stamp set from Particraft, and my son, D made the starry one, also using the seaside stamp set. My eldest, S, made 2 of the lilies cards (not for the competition) using the lilies stamp from the bears A5 stamp set, and K made the other lilies card (top left), and the butterfly card in the centre using the A5 butterfly stamp set and the A5 nature stamp set. They were all heat embossed and painted with cosmic shimmer watercolours, except the ice cream van - coloured with pencils.

They look like they are enjoying themselves...:-)
Bye for now,
