Just look at this lushness

Whilst i was away, i received a package from Ribbon Oasis. It was just jam packed with lush ribbons all in the B & W scheme, my favourite. It included one of their new ribbon storage cards which are so easy to use and i will certainly be getting some of those soon. I have the perfect place for DH to built me a rail for them to hand on.

Here are some pics

I have started customising a project from SAG to suit my own style which went perfectly with the ribbons.

Whilst i am here i might as well tell you about the event my crop are organising soon. We are a little crop up here, Aberdeen Craft Group which is now based at Crafters Haven. We are privalidged to have Dyan Reavely prepared to travel hundreds of miles to come and see us.

We had the gorgous Dyan, Mark and Ellie from art from the heart and designers of the funky Blonde moments paper range travel up from Harrogate with their van jam packed with goodies to entertain us for two stunning days.

Dyan is such a wonderful teacher, who puts you at your ease, and gently takes you step by step throughtout the whole creating process.

The format of the event will be the same as last year. It consists of 6 technique classes spread over the two days. You will be provided with all the material and just need to bring your own tools and adhesives.

The package will include tea and coffee throughout the day and cakes and home bakes plus lunch on both days. Dyan will bring with her a great collection of products from her shop including mini books, patterned paper, stamps, altered items. Take a look at the Blonde moments site for their collections and ideas and also the new web site, Art from the heart which is the webshop and Dyan's funky blog.

The whole weekend is a very enjoyable experience. Even if you dont fancy the blonde moments range, its the tips and techniques that you will learn that you will take away with you and use over and over again.

You can find more info on Sandra's blog and I will be back soon with some photo's from our attendees last year and hopefully an idea of the projects we will be doing soon. If you have any questions just email me as i am doing the online promoting for the group.
