Book box workshop

Today's workshop was very exciting. We used my favourite G45 papers to make our book box card. I think everyone enjoyed it and I know they all fell in love with the papers!!!! We had quite a leisurely start to the morning, then a few anxious moments as we constructed the concertina section! But I must say how well everyone managed quite a fiddly bit. Really need 2 pairs of hands at this point! Once that part was done it was time to play! Cutting into the beautiful papers, deciding which designs to use, and lots of fussy cutting. But it was worth all the hard work and everyone went home happy. 
Some pictures below of the almost finished boxes. 
Thank you ladies for a lovely day.

Making notes...

Here are some photographs of a cute little notebook I made yesterday.  I used some of the new JOFY stamps (JOFY22, JOFY24 & JM33) & some of the beautiful new Fresco Paints from PaperArtsy.   We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of them in The Barn - any day now hopefully!   I really enjoyed this little mini project & so useful too! The alphabet is from Creative Expressions (Vintage by Sam Poole).  Hope you like it.  Sx






Configuration box

Thank you Angela for bringing your finished box in to show us. It's absolutely beautiful.

Guess what! We will be using the brand new Graphic 45 Botanical Tea to make our Book Box this Wednesday. You lucky people! I absolutely adore this collection and it has been such fun to use. I'm sure you will all agree with me. 
Here is a little taster of our project. It will be quite time consuming but I'm sure you will be very happy with all your hard work. 


Look forward to seeing you Wednesday.
