Sneak Peeks & Current Classes!

I've had a very productive day today! Not only have I finished a couple of personal projects (visit my blog to read more about that) but I've finally finished and photographed the layout for tomorrow (wednesday) night's class and got ahead on the next one. Wednesday nights concentrate on a different style or trend in scrapping and this week I've created a very bold & brave layout with bright colours. So the style is modern and incorporates some stapled ribbons (one of my fave trends that never seems to date!!) I'm also trying to incorporate more variety in the styles of title and journaling as it is all too easy to get bogged down in computer journaling and rely to heavily on die cut letters for your titles (those in the know will only too aware of how much I love the big shot LOL).

Unusually, I'm a bit ahead and have started the next layout for Friday/Saturday - which I don't need for another week. In these classes (and yes, you spotted it, it's the same class held twice!) we focus on a technique (but let's not get too bogged down in what is a technique and what is a trend!!). This time, we will be exploring another simple form of doodling and this is a brilliant layout for using up scraps - so it's good for your purse too! I don't want to give away too much yet - but here's a sneak peek at what's to come. If you'd like to book for any of our classes, or just need a bit more info, you can contact us by e-mail or at the shop 7 days per week.

One last thing for today - our altered traffic cones have received quite a lot of comments so, for those of you that cannot pop down to see for yourselves, here's a piccie! I have to confess I can't claim the credit for these, they were a surprise gift from my mum & my stepbrother! They came about as we were having alot of trouble with inconsiderate people parking right outside the shop. As our lease doesn't allow us to place an A-frame outside the agents suggested we either put a couple of old crates or some traffic cones out there. I wasn't thrilled with either option as I thought they'd look really scruffy. A few days later, mum arrived with these - how cool is that?
