So we started our classes back up today – We are at the Campanile Hotel near Braehead and do you know what? They provide a FREE bus service between Braehead bus station and the hotel and back again! How cool is that? I was amazed by that – you don’t get something for nothing these days but apparently you CAN get a free bus service!
It was so lovely to see the girls again for our class. Thank you Tracey for the chocolate – you are a star as always! We had fun with today’s techniques – both resist techniques, one with masking fluid and one with wax crayon – everyone was reminiscing about school after smelling the masking fluid which was really strange – it has a funny kind of fishy glue smell which I suppose is exactly what the glue smelt like when we were at school! anyway – it was fun and brought back memories too! Here’s what we made:
This was the card made with masking fluid- the girls were a lot more artistic with their application of fluid than me!
This lovely rose card was the one we used the wax crayon technique on – scratching off the wax where we wanted highlights to show through .
So on 3rd September we will be holding our RETIRAL LIST party! Yippee! this is to celebrate and say good bye to items that are leaving the Stamping Up catalogue FOR GOOD! The party is from 1.30 – 3.30 ish at the Campanile hotel and costs £3.00. We will be doing make and takes and generally having a crafting good time! Yes I will be putting a PayPal button up in the next couple of days so you can pay before you arrive and beat the rush! Remember to add your postal address so I can get your ticket out to you!
This next card is my offering for our Tartan Stampers challenge – the challenge was to use double embossing. The card is made using whisper white and Pear Pizazz card stock, Pear Pizazz ink, pearls, Sizzix Embossing folder, border punch and the Flight of the Butterfly and Just Believe stamp sets.
This final card is the one I have made for my dad to send out to people to let them know where he has moved to. It is a single layer card and took minutes to make – I think it has turned out pretty well!
I printed up inserts to save him writing all the details out a dozen times! I think he is nearly unpacked – we had a trip to Ikea yesterday to get another chest of drawers for his things and he has decided he wants a new computer now as well so another shopping trip on the horizon!
Okay – I think that is it for now – Don’t forget the classes – we still have a some spaces and you would be more than welcome! Pop me an email over for more details. So until next time don’t forget to stamp your place in the world! xxx
