I thought that it was about time that my blog had a proper make over but I wanted something quite plain.  I found Delightful Dots via somebody elses blog (can't remember whose though sorry) and found some absolutely fab layouts.  I chose this one as it had a matching header that I have added my own type to.

I hope you like it.

Week Two - Bold and Bright

Hi people

Well what a week and how many followers are there for Tuesday Taggers.  I had a lovely time looking around everybody's blogs at all of your work.

Well as the title says it is bold and bright.  My tag is below.

Card Stock Papermill
Card Stock for circles Coordinations
Image from Janet coloured with promarkers
bling papermania
ribbon from stash (thanks Janet)
sentiment Jesse Edwards (docrafts)

It is maybe not as bright as it could be but people close to me will know that I am not a bright bold person so this was a real challenge for me.

I hope you will all go over and have a look at the DT's work and join in with us on Tuesday Taggers.

Til later

Tuesday Taggers is Here

Hi to all

Tuesday Taggers is launched today.  We have some fantastic designers to entice you into doing something of your own.  For this week we have got a prize for number one tagger who will be chosen at random.

Here is my tag 

It is quite obviously for a new home.  The stamp is a Stampin' Up! wheel water coloured with Stampin' Write! markers. Ribbon is from my stash.  Background card Coordinations from Papermania, Doodlebug rubons for the greeting. I have then added doodling around the edge to set it off.

I hope you like and that you will pop over to the site and join us for some fun.

Hi everyone,

As many of you will know I have been doing a degree in graphic design and last week I finished.  One of my final projects was a pop up book.  I promised that when I had finished I would post images on here of it.  So as promised here they are

I produced everything from the pop ups to the illustrations.  It was a long hard slog but it was all worth it in the end.  I hope you all like.

My Lovely Sunday Class

This is my group of ladies that I teach on a Sunday once a month in Spalding at a shop called Carols Cards.

We made a set of drawers and 3 mini magazine files like these (these are the ones I took as an example)

I had both beginners and old hands alike and they all managed fine.  I even had my hubby making it as well.  Here are my ladies first and then I will show you their work

Here are Corinna and Megan and 

and here are Sue, Pat and Anne

They all do work really tidily (not lol) but they all have fun and that is the whole point of my classes.

Here are their versions of the project

This is Corrinas Megans Sues

Pat Anne

I even managed to get my hubby in on the act!!!! (he who says that crafting is a wasted of time)

We had a great time and their next project is on the table in one of the above photos, a rucksack which will have a mini book in it.

I can't wait and I think all of my ladies (and hubby) are fab.

Unfortunately I didn't make it into the Stamp With Us DT but congratulations to all those who did.

I have however been working on a new project with some crafty friends of mine (who quite literally live all over the world) that I will be able to share with you very very soon. Watch this space!!!!
