Some More Scrapagogo Piccies

 Here are a few photos of some other pages that I made at the Scrapagogo Retreat. 

This class was called When I Was a Child by Lisa Griffin. I don't have any photos of when I was a child so I decided to use one of my little  fella on his first day back at school last year and printed it in sepia to give it a vintage look.

We also had a great time in the class eating the sweets before we could place the wrappings on the page!

In the middle of the colourful wheel I put things about him that I want him to remember, his best friends, his favourite clubs and sports and of course his love of bugs!

Another class was Tagged to Transfer by Sheena Rowlands who showed us how to transfer  copyright free images printed onto a laser printer, onto a tag or scrapbook page. 

This butterfly image turned out really well and I coloured it with Distress Inks to match the colour of the fab paper that we used.

See that little crotchet butterfly? Sheena made one for each member of the class to use on their project, how cool is that!

Have a great week!

A Fantastic Few Weeks

It's been a fantastic few weeks, the kids have been on Easter holidays, I have been on the Scrapagogo Retreat and had a day out on the Orient Express!

The kids have just gone back to school so I have opened the door on my craft room again and sat down to finish the few little bits that I didn't quite finish at the retreat.

This book was made in the Cotton and Calico Chronicles Class with Sheena Rowlands. We had a fabric book and were shown how to use misting sprays and our own made stencils to create a background to each page.

I finished at home with some pretty lace and buttons sewn on to the side of the book and some chipboard buttons sewn onto the tree.

The photos were taken on a trip to Hyde Hall in Chelmsford, one of my favourite ways to spend a Sunday is going there with the dog for a lovely walk and lunch in the cafe.

I decide to use my sharpie pens to add some journalling and changed the colours just like a child's fabric book.

I did a little bit of sewing and made this little flower.

We were shown how to use the positive and negative of our stencils to get the most out of them.

I had such fun making this little book and it looks even sweeter in real life. It was a fab class on a fantastic retreat, I can't wait until I go back in March next year.

Have a fantastic weekend all!

A Smashing Day!

Last weekend my friend and I went to a fantastic Smash Book Day run by the lovely Nina at  Sugar and Spice Crafts in Barleylands Craft Centre, Billericay. I have had my books for a few months now but have been too scared to write in them, nuts aren't I!

They are full of luscious papers a full description can be seen on
their You Tube page here.

Anyway I managed to start a few pages amoungst the tea drinking and nattering. I have made a start on the pink book which is just stuff for me but was also a bit naughty and bought the green and yellow ones too!

A page about my birthday...

And one about my birthday cake which was made by with the help of my friend Jennifer. It was scrummy and full of chocolate goodness!

More work to be done on this one about my love of colour, says she who is sitting here with grey trousers and a black top! 

A page about Harvey or fluffy no nuts as we call him, our lovely Norfolk Terrier..

Some of my little fellas drawings that he has given me, he loves drawing a landscape!

I am so glad I went on this class and saw some of the wonderful work that the other girls had created on their books.

Since then I have been I have been collecting ticket stubs and all sorts of bits and pieces and just quickly sticking them in.

I have also bought a few books to help with decorative writing and some to create ideas for doodling on the pages so once I have read them I will let you know if they are any good.

Have a great week!
