I have some lovely layouts, minibooks and canvases out of the classes and got some fantastic ideas for future projects. I was even lucky enough to win a little prize for my services to the cyber crop!
These are some of the things I made. If you want a go at the classes yourself head on over to http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk.

My go at the new card makers dare this week.
The theme (to use ribbon on a mans card) fitted just nicely for me as my ickle baby bro has just bought his first house, so I need a special card. Because I know it'll end up in the bin I've not done much to it, used a scrap of silver card that's been sanded, bit of Junkitz paper and the ribbon I've cut into lengths then made into a house.
Thanks for the dare girls! If you're reading this and haven't had a go yet go check it out!!

I've been wanting to mix my papercrafting and jewellery making ideas for a while now and have finally got down to trying out some ideas. This is a quick key fob/ charm I made with a piece of chipboard covered in patterned papers and glazed over with a pearl glaze. I made the necklace (bellow) a bit ago from a Prima Candies blossom, Fimo, rose quartz and mother of pearl beads. I'll have to do some more experiments!

I'm ill with a cold, which meant I didn't enjoy bonfire night like I usually do because every firework bang made my brain rattle inside my head so I'm feeling sorry for myself because of that. I have an absolute ton of work to do today including a commission that should have been in the clients home by today. So instead of snuggling up in bed with my honey and lemon I have to get up and get on. Then I've just found out I didn't get on the Banana Frog Design Team, which to be honest I didn't expect to but secretly I was hoping it might cheer me up a bit if it was good news. Then I've just remembered UKScrappers is down today so I can't go and muck about on there till my brain starts working again. I need a disclaimer at the beginning of this post it's so moany! I'm just feeling sorry for myself I'll be back to normal soon enough.
This is my minibook I made for the Banana Frog DT comp. I collected together some of my favorite papers and ribbons (all dotty ones) and filled it with some of my silly favorite things. All the embellishment (except a blossom and the papers/ribbons) I've made myself with stamps or handpainted/sewn. I'd recommend having a go. It's a great way of using up papers you like, (you know the ones that are too nice to use) and making something just for you. These are just a few pages.

Card using machine stitching. I've used a Heidi Swap blossom, stiched on in the center and decorated with spare scrapbooking paper (Gin X and Doodlebug), mismatched stitches and pink velvet ribbon from my sewing box.
