This is a card that we made in a Zoom workshop on Wednesday 4th November 2020.
The card is A4 folded in half the die on the front is part of a Lisa Horton set Happy Christmas I like a plain front to a card when I have something interesting going on inside.
Take the back off the tape but just one side.
Line up the first side with the outside of the card.
Fold the inside of the card, take the backing off the strips of tape and carefully fold the card closed.
Glitter on double sided tape adds the touch of sparkle that Christmas always needs!
We made this card and 2 others last week during our Zoom class check out the Cornhill Community Centre Facebook Page if you are local to Aberdeen and would like to join us.
This is the set of cards that we made.
Thanks for visiting hope to see you soon.
So this is day 3 and I have managed to make something, where does time go?
So I hope that you like my effort and why not have a go at some of the challenges?
Thanks for visiting see you soon
Under the current circumstances we are going to halt the workshops for the time being, we will keep you posted.
I decided on this class partly to use up scraps and partly because I think it is nice to have some decorations for festivals throughout the year.
We will be hand sewing some eggs, nice relaxing project, and they are made from scraps of fabric, always nice to use up bits.
We should get two eggs made on the evening, but you will go home with enough materials to make another four and a pattern for more.
The workshop will take place upstairs Kilau (Old Aberdeen).
Free parking is available outside after 4pm
Coffee Machine will be on and food will be available.
Wednesday 18th March 2020 – 2 hours from 6.30pm – 8.30pm (If you want to order something to eat coffee shop open until 7pm)
The cost will be £18.00 and this will include all materials to make 6 eggs.

This year I decided that I would do the One Little Word course with Ali Edwards, I have started it before, a very long time ago but this year I plan to finish it! I do some years have a word that I am focusing on without doing anything positive with it, so this year I thought that I would give it a go.
The prompt for February was to create a vision board and this is mine.
As you can tell my word for this year is BELIEVE one of the things that I am practising this year is to improve my hand writing (I need to improve all of my writing, and grammar and spelling :P)
So I have used an ATC card and written my word and others that have been speaking to me. I have edged the card with an ink pad, I have used the same green ink pad to edge most of my panels.
I spotted this little flower as I was getting into my car one morning. It is growing out of the tarmac on our drive. Yes it is very weedy, and if that doesn’t instil hope that anything can happen then nothing will.
This photograph was taken last June at sunset on a beach that I plan to return to. The other beach is my regular walking place, east facing so a place to see sunrises.
I BELIEVE I will return to walk at sunset…..
It always amazes me when people say that they have tidied there craft room, mine is never tidy. I do try but I get side tracked by all the interesting things! I found this today.
I made this in a Fancy Pants workshop at CHA, and yes it was CHA it is so long ago. (Craft and Hobby Association in the USA). Nice to see that they are a company that is still out there and they still have some nice things.
The words still seem important to remember. I’m off to play some more, and perhaps do some more tidying!
Have a great weekend and I hope that you get some crafting time.
I journal in an A4 pad and struggle with words, well I think that I have made a breakthrough with that. I am practising my lettering, I think that because I am dyslexic (boy that was hard to spell, so grateful for spell check) I developed bad writing, as a way to hide spelling errors. This is a quick description of how I made the page. The stamps are old ones from Stampendous.
What is Sludge Paste I here you ask. Well when you stencil with different colours of paste and get them mixed put them all in an empty pop and use it when you are going to add colour over the top.
The Kaleidoscope paint includes grit to add even more texture.
I think that I like houses because I wonder what the lives inside them is like and the wonder of people.
Thank you for stopping in and please if you have time and live in the North East of Scotland could you please fill in my survey. Thank you
I have been researching Bullet Journaling for the past few months, making it difficult for myself because I had to make it mine! This weekend I made a cover for my journal. So here is the cover and some of the process. I will share more of the inside soon.
The paint is great for loads of different surfaces and has a lustre sheen I used the Atlantic Blue Lustre and the Turquoise Wave Shimmer, and of course Sparkle Star.
While stitching it all together I added some more elastic to use as a closer.
My workshops will start again in February and if you have anything that you would like me to do let me know. I think that Journals and books may feature! Thanks for visiting see you soon.
Here are the samples from last months the Black and White workshop
I hope that these samples have inspired you.
