The Last In Miniature

After 33 different mini projects Karen has decided to finish the In Miniature classes. From the Carousel to the memorable Cupcake and all of the many little books she has taught over the last four years Karen has always come up with something different. Here are a few snaps from this evenings class.



It was a lovely project to end on and everyone had a great time. We may well repeat some of the first In Miniature Classes over the next two months so watch this space.

Watch out for Karens Mini Book Classes starting in September.

Spotlight on Chris

We see so many lovely layouts from all of you ladies in our classes that we thought it was about time we celebrated and shared some of this beautiful work and give you your own moment in the spotlight.

Today we are looking and admiring some great layouts done by Chris Neal.

Chris has adapted class layouts and made up her own with some great results.


P1110560  P1110561


P1110563  P1110564

The masked title “Summer Rain” makes this layout special.


P1110567  P1110568


P1110571  P1110572

It was a great idea to add the fairies to the paper. They go really well and add to the dream effect.

If you come to class and have some favourite layouts you have made yourself then please bring them in to be photographed. We love looking at your work and sharing it on the blog.

Scrapbook Challenge–Anything Goes

We love our scrapbooking. Making pages gives all of us a real sense of satisfaction and so many of you have e-mailed your beautiful pages or brought them into the shop for us to see but you still don’t feel confident enough entering a Scrapbook Challenge. So with this in mind we thought we’d encourage everyone to have a go by making this months theme
The winner is selected by Random.Org on 15th September, so whether a beginner of a seasoned Scrapper, you will have an equal chance to win. If we have more than 20 entries then we will select someone to join our Challenge Design Team for the next challenge.
So come on everyone, get your papers out and have a go. (No class layouts please these need to be all your own work). You can enter twice so plenty of chances.

UPDATE 6th September 2011: We now have over 20 entries so we will be looking for members to add to our Design Team. Good luck everyone. xxx

Here are some ideas from the team:
Can’t wait to see all of your lovely work. xx
