My desert class for the dinner party

We had a dinner party over at Carolinez forumz last night and it was great fun. The team put together some loverly classes all based around a holiday/welcome home theme. Laura's cards are started by me and will be finished when i find some herma, Jayne's class is perfect for those beach/pool pics and i have some great shots so will start that later and i made a mini album from toilet roll inners.

I first saw something about making tags from toilet rolls over on two peas. Then i saw a gorgoues album over on the bad girls blog by Ania.

So here is my version of it. I added lots of features including lace acetate windows to peak thru to the otherside, acetate jounal pages, photo pages and lots of little pictures placed on the toilet roll tags. I kept it all together with my trusty BIA.

You can find the full instructions here

Here are the pics anyway

We had such fun last night and thank you to all the girls that took part.

I have a few LO's to upload soon as well so will be back soon

My first Ribbon Oasis projects

I have been dying to show you these projects for a while but had to wait until Bea at Ribbon Oasis posted them on the site.

The black and white kit i received to play with was just lush. I was nervouse about what to make but just went with what i am best at, LO's and mini books.

So here they are. The first was a class at SAG. But i wasnt happy with it so customised it to suit me. I added strips of ribbon and journalling cards to create a summer journal.

Next is a mini matchbook album with lots of interactive flappy bits (technical term!!!)

Next is a little brag book that can hang from my bag or tote.

Now for the LO's

This one is of DH doing a silly face for the camera

Next of Daniel and his new found image awareness and attitude!!!!

Then my little team player Alex

And lastly a LO of my adopted sister Sarah

And that's it for now as i am taking advantage of no children as they are out for the day with their Frodsham Nanny before we make the gruelling 8 hour plus drive back to Scotland.

Bye for now

Where do i begin....

Firstly, Thanks for all my comments on my teachers presents. I was unsure about them but then the boys where really excited about them and DH didnt believe i made them myself so i am reasured.

I made some quick cards to go with them. I used a hero arts stamp which basically did the work for me.

Its that time again for Caroline's Monthly kits to go live. You can see the July kit here, watch the birdie and the additional cupcake love kit here as well.

Head over to the blog to see what The DT and guest DT have come up with.

Also check out what the loverly Carole aka Hysterical produced with the gorgous clair kit by elsie, some stunning work there.

Here is a clipboard i made using the cupcake kit. I made this to hold my summer recipe's especially now the fruit farm is open, raspberry cupcakes, here i come.

Here is a LO using the cardstock, pp, ribbon and chipboard flower from the kit.

My mum will have a fit when she see's this, lol

Oh and i have won a blog award, so will be back later to sort it out.
