Very Many Stars Class

Like stars? Want to make some lovely Christmas decorations?

Here is a brand new kit from Stampin Up! With 26 stars ranging from 38cm right down to 5cm.

Here's the set of stars I made using the kit which costs just £23.95.

Everything you need (except for adhesive) is included in the kit.

If you would like to learn how to make the stars, I am holding a class on 22nd November at 11am to 1pm. Now, one thing you do need to know, you will only finish 4-5 stars in the class - once you know how to make the stars you can finish them at home. I took about a day and a half to make them all up.

The Early Bird cost of the class is £30 if you book with me by the 10th of November.

The cost includes the full kit and adhesives to assemble the items in the class. Refreshments are also included.

I have to order the kits in time for the class so will be putting the order in for the 11th November.

Order after the 11th November and the cost of the class will be £35 (as I will need to order more kits and there will be an extra delivery charge).

Book early to get the best deal so contact me now to reserve your place.

I'm back and crafting

Well, what can I say about Brussels..? Amazing, absolutely amazing.

The hotel was breathtaking. Here are a few photos.

Here's a couple of pics of my room.

Gorgeous, isn't it. Almost as good as the waffles,

Oh, and then there was Convention!

Not once but twice on stage - after five years attending, I finally made it. Just wish I had taken a photo on stage of the audience so I could keep looking at them - it went so quickly.

I'm all fired up now I'm back and have spent all weekend crafting and catching up with friends so bob back soon for details of my next classes - wait till you see the star class!

Phew, I've finally got everything sorted for my trip to Brussels for the 2014 European Stampin Up! Convention. 120 swaps done (more than I'd planned but hoping to get some nice ones back.

Here are the ones I made.

Now, normally when I make batches of cards I start to get a bit fed up but these cuties are so sweet I just kept going.

The dog card uses
Hot Diggity Dog stamp set, Neutrals DSP, Homemade Holiday Framelits dies (I cut the chimneys off to make tags) and Chocolate Chip ink. A mini brad is used to the top of the tag.

The cat card has
You Little Furball stamp set, Brights DSP, Homemade Holiday framelits and Pumpkin Pie ink.

I'll post more photos of the Framelits when I get back so come back soon got details.

Class Wreath

I've been flat out lately but here's a photo of the wreath I made in Saturdays class.

I used the last of my Mocha Morning DSP and although it was REALLY difficult to glue together, I love the result.

Each of the 3" circles were cut into the centre and then made into a cone shape. The cones were attached using a hot glue gun - and I only burnt myself once!!!

Here's a photo of a wreath I made a few years ago, it's made using 3" squares and is the same method the ladies used to make their wreaths in the class. Hope you had a nice time ladies?
