What a weekend ...

... it started early on Saturday with the girls swimming lessons followed by 3 hours of setting up the School Summer Fete. Lugging tables around in this heat is exhausting! A few more hours spent with the girls enjoying the fete meant that I was asleep by 9.30pm!

Sunday saw the CraftyStash Summer Workshop with Tracie Hudson, 10am- 8pm. She taught 4 classes - Sassfras Lass and Prima - and I had great fun learning some new techniques I would never usually do on my LOs.

Oops - I was a bit premature in posting my LOs from the workshop, as they are running another one Mid-July. So I've taken then off for now and will replace again later.

Lots of cutting out on this LO and I just need to add some journalling.


This one is mainly done with stickers. I loved making the cute rosette embellishment out of denim.


The afternoon was spent on Prima LOs and painting. The first one is actually acetate and is painted on the reverse. More paint on the front with some stickles and bling - voila!


More handcutting, painting and distressing. The title is stuck onto stamped acetate. I've added 'Here comes the' after the class, otherwise my choice of title wasn't particularly meaningful!


The Sassafras Lass LOs are definitely more my style, and I've got some inspiration on how to use that pile of their paper I've got sitting here.
