Last 2 classes




The products for the last two crop classes arrived this week and they are now on the shop site at www.totalpapercrafts.co.uk to book. I was nice and early with getting them onto the site today and there must have been some early risers poised ready as the classes started to fly out straight away. I've even had phone calls from the stamping and scrapbooking show at Ally Pally booking places!

The pics here are the sneak peeks of the kit contents and as usual we have loads of great stuff in these classes. The BasicGrey class is one of my favourites as it uses the new 'Mellow' line and is in gorgeous autumnal colours. I love the page I have put together for this class - it makes me feel all warm inside. I'll post a sneak peek on here of the actual samples for all of the classes throughout the coming week - together with numbers and sizes of the photos I used for each.

The other class uses Frances Meyer products - a new manufacturer for me but I was drawn to the lovely cool colours of this paper line and loved the fact that there was co-ordinating chipboard as well. I've added a pack of rub-ons and a chalk inkpad in one of the most used colours in my toolkit to make this a great value class. I hope you like it anyway!

Sneak Peek at the Making Memories class for Oct 6th crop



The Making Memories class for the 6th October crop sold out within minutes which meant that not many had the chance to even get a look at it. For this reason I've uploaded the kit peek here so you can see what was in it. It might be possible for me to get hold of some more kits if enough people want it - I just can't fit everyone into the classroom as it has a limit of 25!

The kit is from the new Funky Vintage line and includes papers, cardstock, blossoms, brads, word fetti, ephemera stickers and an alphabet. Let me know if you are interested and I'll add you to the list for collection at the crop.

One for the boys.....



No, there's nothing rude to see here - move along now!! I'm referring to the lovely masculine colours of the kit I'm using at my club tomorrow and this is the page that I'll be teaching with it. I've loved Fancy Pants papers for ages and have had them in the shop for quite a while and the Dapper range has to be one of my favourites. I love the warm mix of browns and pale blue and who knew that our eldest would happen to be wearing clothes that matched it perfectly as I snapped him in the garden on a gloriously sunny day?!!

I'm usually a one-photo kind of designer, I love finding that single picture that captures everything I want to say on my scrapbook pages but I know that not everyone likes to work like that and so I forced myself out of creative niche! I used three 6x4 photos that I then cropped down to the focal points and I'm really happy with the end result - hope those of you who are coming to club tomorrow like it too!

I added Fancy Pants Dapper rub-ons to my design as I've been desperate to use them for ages - I have in the shop at www.totalpapercrafts.co.uk but can always order more if they have gone before you get to them, just let me know you want some!

Take care, Karen :o)
