Vintage Artistry Cards

Hi Lovelies,

 The wonderful Linda has joined us again to create some seriously stunning 
cards with the 'Vintage Artistry' collection from 49 and Market.

 Linda designed and taught these three amazing cards a few weeks ago,
and the ladies were nothing but impressed 
with how they turned out!

These papers are just perfect for fussy-cutting as there are so many 
flowers, ferns and leaves to embellish with!

To continue with the vintage theme of the collection, Linda distressed the papers and fussy-cut elements. This step is optional, yet it adds an extra element to these stunning cards.

As always with Linda, a card is never truly finished without a sweet little something inside. 
Linda used stained muslin, jute twine and a fussy-cut 
butterfly to complete this card. 

Linda's second card features a coordinating envelope embellishment to 
store an eclectic of fussy-cut elements and distressed muslin. 
How sweet!

 Anything could be added to the feature envelope depending on your taste. 
It's all about layers and fussy-cutting when 
it comes to Linda's cards!

Here's a little peak inside. 
A few strips of patterned paper, muslin and 
fussy-cutting to finish it off. 

 The final card focuses on more of the green tones from the paper range by using 
green card-stock as the base and a few hints 
of Tim Holtz distress ink.

 Every piece of paper has a purpose; even the barcode. 
Linda used this piece as a sentiment with a bit of stenciling and distressing to complete.

Linda's cards are just stunning! 
Keep your eyes out for her next class to join in the fun.
In the meantime, come down to the Scrap N Patch to pick up the 
last of these gorgeous papers before they run out!

Dylusions Dy-Cuts Art Journal

Hi Lovelies,

This week's edition of Art Journal is very special, stunning and unique!
We can't get enough of all the textures and colours going on in this page! We just love this. 

This wonderful page features the Dylusions 'Dy-Cuts' which are quirky and colorful pre-cut shapes which make the perfect addition to any art journal page!

You probably can already guess what paints we have used this week...
The stunning, vibrant colours which are leaping of this page, are of course, Dylusions paints!

When you take a closer look at you can see the texture and elements which have been layered to create this stunning page. A script stamp is perfect for layering and can fill in any gaps where you think something might be missing but not quite sure what!

Helen has scattered some of the new Dina Wakley 'Collage Words' across the two pages. These are great as you can add a sentiment to your page whilst still allowing the colours from the background to peek through.

Hi Lovelies,

I should let you have a moment to catch your breath before you start scrolling through this blog post as the stunning photos you're about to see will really take your breath away!

Okay, I hope you're still breathing and have enough brain function to read this text.  These gorgeous snapshots all come from our first Mega Scrap class of this year which features 'C'est La Vie' by Couture Creations.

The wonderful Helen has been at is again to prepare TEN unique, individual and entirely beautiful layouts using the one range and taught on the one day!

Nautical ATC Class

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you some photos of what ladies got up to in one of our previous Artist Trading Card classes!

Obviously this week's ATC's have a nautical theme, so the Couture Creations 'Sea Breeze' die set was the perfect accompaniment!

The stunning watery background for both the card and die cuts is attributed to the wonderful Tim Holtz Oxides! These inks are extremely versatile and have such a unique finish.

These cards measure at 2.5" x 3.5" and are the perfect size to give as gifts to friends, pop in your daily diary or mix in with your pocket scrapping.

Liz used a light layer of clear embossing powder over the oxide inked die-cuts which gives a beautiful watery effect. 

If you've been watching our Blog space lately you would know we're currently on a bit of a Crackle Texture Paste craze! I'm sure you will be too after you try it as it truly takes your project up that extra notch!

Similarly to Art Journal classes, ou…
