Online workshop

I would like to show you some pages I've just finished that I did using an online workshop from Papermaze. You get sent the kit by post and the instructions are available through a blog.
The bird paper inspired me to do a layout about our budgies Charlie and Lola and this first double page is made using the blog instructions.

This second page was made entirely from the leftover papers and elements from the kit except for the white cardstock, and I still have more elements left to add onto future pages. I would definately do another of their online workshops and I'm hoping they will get more of the butterfly one that is out of stock at the moment.

Thanks for having a peek.

Last Mondays sketch challenges

Firstly I would like to welcome Jackie to Bradfield Craft Club, I hope we can inspire and challenge you but most of all come to regard us as friends.

I must apologise as I am unable to find the pictures of the scrap lift layout and card we used for our inspiration for last weeks challenge but looking at the following submissions you get an idea of the layout of both the card and the scrapbook page.

This nature inspired page is Jacqui's.

This cheeky page belongs to Pam.

This feline page belong's to Joan.

These are my brothers staring back at you.

This gem adorned card belongs to Chrissie.

This star struck card belong's to Joan.

This card belong's to Jackie and has the grain paper background that the original card had on it.

Here are some layouts by a couple of craft club members who havn't had their pages downloaded to this blog as they have been on holiday.

This one belongs to Maggie and is from the sketch that was shown on 12th Sept.

These 3 layouts are by Linda this one again from 12th Sept.

We're Back!

Bradfield Craft Club is rested and raring to go! Here are the posts for Mondays meeting ( sorry it's a bit late) below are the two sketches and the format was to use old stash.

This is Jaqui's contribution and as usual the photo does not do credit to her beautiful layout and fun card.

Here is Pam's layout and the title is so right for the photo and how about those cute pup's!

This elegant layout belongs to Joan, I love the colours she has used and even better - the papers came free in a magazine! Her card was made using old christmas cards.

My page was made using some of the very first papers that I bought and the stars were left over from my childrens craft supplies, for the card I also used paper from the same stack.

Helen's page kit challenge

Helen and I got together at last and I don't know if you remember the page kit Helen had 2 of (see 10th July) but these are the pages we have made using it.

This is Helen's page and I love the word 'one' that she has used ( it was cut using her Cricut).

This is my page which I'm not keen on as when it was finished it looked too messy for my liking. I think I got carried away with all the embellishments in the kit, there are even some left!!!!!

Last day!

Boo Hoo, this was my last lesson prompt I will have to carry on without outside help and think for myself again. But I have found lots of new ways to use my stash and that's always a good thing.
Anyway this prompt was printing out on t-shirt transfer paper but I cheated and printed straight to fabric. The theme was Peace and Quiet, some thing I am looking forward to later this week when the kids go back to school!!!!!

Day 19

The images that were sent to me for day 19 were these strips of pattern that we were supposed to print out on sticky back plastic - which I did but the ink refused to dry on mine (even 2 days later) so to finish the page I had to print them out on white cardstock instead. I would love to find a clear sticky printable plastic as the effect looked realy good, but it will have to wait until I can get to a stationers.
The theme for the page was also fashion!
