Tamlyn ideas!

It is such a dark and depressing monday, I can't think of a better way to brighten it up than to get my tote out and make some cards!!! I normally reserve Monday for admin and really boring mundane tasks but why should I... I am going to break the rules today!!
I now have all of the new Tamlyn Art Designs decoupage papers in stock and despite my original reservations and personal dislike for decoupage it is winning me around, especially with these designs.. I love them. They are modern and so versatile.
I created the card you can see on the right with a basic card blank and some paperstock, to make sure the decoupage character remains the focal point on the card I have only embellished with some small pearls which are by Hero Arts and the 16 is American Crafts Thickers.
Oh and a quick update on the Whoops shack.. it is nearly finished on the inside, photo's will follow so you can see, the walls are finished, eletrics are just to be connected up and can you believe it the flooring is being delivered this week!!

Crate Paper Embellishments!!

I had to share this one.... I have been playing with the new Crate paper Embellishments and papers this morning. They really are delicious!!.. it's been a while since I have delved into the Scrap tote and how I have missed it, I hope to have the project ideas flowing over the next few weeks.. I also have so many new products to add to the website, it's going to be a really busy time but so worth it...I am sure that nobody will be disappointed.

More details on the Layout..I used the Mia collection to create this page, along with some basics from my toolkit.. oh, and some American Crafts Rub-ons so really little effort for such high impact, I love inking so might have gone a little overboard on that but it's one of those techniques that makes me feel all warm inside, you get results every time and you really can't go wrong!

Still working hard!

Things have been so quiet on the blog front recently but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy... We have been working hard on the Whoops Shack, the lighting is in (thank you Bob :-) ) and the walls are looking good.. the floor will be down by the end of the week. It's all taking shape which is brilliant and the knowledge that it will all come together very soon is just a dream come true for me personally.

I have been promising a class timetable for weeks but I have been a little apprehensive to publish one until I know the works are nearly complete so I have move the publishing of these back slightly and an email (as well as a lengthy blog update) will be sent out at the beginning of December.

Today I have added the new Christmas cardstock and paper stacks from DCWV to the Website, the textured papers are just lovely and a must for any seasonal projects... make sure you check them out

Monthly Scrap Kits will be released for the first time in December so stay tuned for updates and to be the first to get your hands on the kits. All kits will be themed, whether it's a certain time of year or coincides with the release of a new product range you wont be disappointed.
