Saturday happenings..

Look what I received from all the lovelies that I spent the weekend with.

 flowers note

They are the amazing ones and I was really touched, thank you ladies so very much.

After a yummy breakfast we quickly started getting busy, we had a long day ahead of us and we kicked off with an easy project to warm up, a boxed set of cards using the sweet stamp set Bright Blossom (currently dormant but will come back on the 1st of Oct.).

step 12

You could tell this was the 1st class I prepared for the event all the way back in May by the infusion of bright colours, I was looking forward to Summer at that point little did I know that we won’t be having much of a Summer.

step 8   The box itself is a clear acetate box that we spruced up using some designer paper and stamped elements. Everyone made 5 cards to go inside it.

step 5

A simple but very effective design and they all loved them. Everyone got their own stamp set to keep its a really versatile one.

Then we had a break where we indulged in home baked cookies tea or coffee all enjoyed outside as the weather on Saturday was simply beautiful

Here I am up on the window sills trying to fight with the HUMONGOUS and very dusty drapes, Janice and Jools did such a great job holding my bum cheeks making sure I didn’t fall down. LOL

We had it all this weekend laughter, tears, we even had some blood as poor Babs managed to cut her finger on Sunday :(   ()those snips are really sharp, we come round full circle, it was amazing.

Our second class of the day was a Christmas project and we started the preparations by making a planner for our handbags. I love to use one every year and if its a pretty one its even better.

Well pretty it definitely was

It is made using the wonderful Snowflake Scrapbooking Kit from the Autumn Winter catalogue. It was an enjoyable and stress free class, everyone loved making it.  Here’s the inside

These kits are amazing value everything needed was included in this kit apart from half a sheet of Cherry Cobbler card stock and a few buttons and the printables.

I love the little tags and the die cut number are just so gorgeous, not to mention the sparkly snowflakes.

We finished just in time for lunch and oh my it was a delicious. We had a  hot and cold buffet with yummy desserts to follow. We had more eating than crafting on the agenda this weekend but miraculously I managed to polish everything put in front of me :)

We were just about ready to start our third class by this time and we were busy figuring out how to best plug in 30 hot glue guns!!!!

I will be back with more tomorrow thank you for stopping by, see you again tomorrow. Till then big hugs xxxx
