Brayering Technique – February Classes

Brayering technique went down really well at my February Classes! Everyone absolutely loved it! Orders for the Sponge Brayers flooded in, so be prepared Stampin’Up! hehe

What am I talking about you ask? Well brayering is where you take a sponge brayer and some ink pads and roll the sponge brayer which you have inked up with your chosen coloured ink, and roll it over a piece of  shimmery white cardstock to create some magic!  Still not clear? hehe well why not go to my youtube video tutorial page and click on the ‘Sponge Brayering Technique Video’.

If you fall in love with the brayering technique as much as my lovely ladies that do ‘class’ lol and would love to make the gorgeous card illustrated in the video, then why not order the products (see post Brayering February Class post ) and once the order goes through I will email you the tutorial to make the gorgeous card.  Better still if you live locally, why not join me for a 1-2-1.

Here are the two cards we made this month in my February Classes – both using the brayering technique!

Christmas Themed Workshop in November!

Hi,

I am holding 2 Christmas Themed workshops in November! Yep, I know leaving it a bit late aren’t I! lol  Well I am! so many of you have already started making all your Christmas Cards right? lol

Anyway, mine are Friday 11 November which unfortunately for you is now full and the other, Saturday 12 November 0930 – 1300 only has 2 spaces left!  So, if you fancy making these amazing (if I say so myself) projects, then go to my workshop page, click on Christmas themed and you can book your space and pay using paypal.

If you’re unlucky enough not to be living near me or can’t make the 12 November, then why not buy the class online from me instead?  You’ll get all the tutorials emailed to you for just £20.  Want the project kits too, no problem, for an additional £5 I will post them out to you (providing you give me your details lol) once payment has been cleared.  Even better, place an order with me for £35+ before end of October and once it’s been processed, and again as long as you have given me your details, you will get the class absolutely FREE!

So why not take a look at the amazing projects below, go and book one of the last two spaces at the workshop on Saturday 12 November or if you can’t come, pay for the class online, give me your address etc and I will email you the tutorials as soon as payment is cleared.

I will be holding another 2 Christmas Themed workshops in December, so make sure you check back to see what projects we will be making in those and book your space early!

Thanks!

Pinkies Blog Hop – Saleabration

blog hop logo

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using new Stampin’ Up!® products that you can earn free during Sale-a-Bration. Simply use the buttons at the end of of each post to keep hopping!

There are so many gorgeous products in this years Sale-a-Bration Catalogue, that you will definitely want to place an order and get those FREEBIES! lol I love them all and again it was hard choosing just one to showcase for you. So I thought I would show you the gorgeous Vellum Stack, Botanical Gardens and the Botanicals For You stamp set.  These two coordinate beautifully and in fact you will find they coordinate well with other stamps and papers in our new spring/summer catalogue.

Here is the first project I have made for you.

botanical vellum treat bag

As you can see I have done a beautiful gift bag in Vellum. First of all I stamped the words ‘Just for You, from Botanicals For You stamp set, using Rose Red Ink. Then using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the words exactly over the top, I heat embossed the words over the top with Clear Embossing Powder. Using clear embossing powder is a great way to get all the colours you wish for. Isn’t it gorgeous! To make it stand out even more I have sponged on the back of the vellum using Rose Red ink and a sponge dauber. I also coloured the larger flowers on the back with crushed curry marker pen.

Botanicals card

Next I made a lovely coordinating card to go with it.  Again I have used some of the same Vellum, and stuck it to some Rose Red Cardstock, using Glue dots in the corners.  To hide the glue dots, I have added large pearls over the top. I stamped flowers from the Botanicals For You stamp set onto Shimmery White CS, using Rose Red, Perfect plum and crushed curry Inks. I stuck the flowers on the vellum using glue dots and added tiny pearls to each of them. Finally I stamped ‘…on your special day’ from the same stamp set on shimmery white cs with crushed curry ink, flagged one end using paper snips and stuck it to the card with dimensionals.  Can you see I added the single crushed curry flower to the banner which I think makes it ‘special’!

Give these together to someone special and they will be bowled over!

Well I hope you have enjoyed looking at my projects and I hope you will pop back soon to see how I have coordinated these Sale-a-bration Freebies with other products from the spring/summer catalogue.

So now it’s time to hop on over to Camille’s blog to see what amazing projects she has made with some new products.

Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!

Hi,

Another Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!  A Brilliant Christmas Themed Workshop last Friday which was so full the table was chaos! lol  What a brilliant morning, full of crafting, filled with lovely ‘crafty’ people and amazing projects (if I do say so myself hehe) to be made.

I absolutely love these Workshops, as ladies from all of my Group Classes as well as those who attend my 1-2-1’s have a chance to meet those from the groups they do not usually meet, and ‘gossip’! lol  Friday’s workshop was full-on but everyone had a brilliant time and all the projects I designed were loved.  There was so much glitter thrown around, you should have seen the room! lol.

Here are the projects that were made and underneath each one is a supply list.  If you wish to purchase any of the products, please click on the product, which will take you to my Online shop where you can place your order and have them delivered directly to your door, in time to make your own for Christmas!
