Workshop in Chorley

Just a quick post to share some cards I made at Amy Shaw's workshop yesterday.  We made cards in the morning and scrapbook pages in the afternoon.  I had a lovely time meeting new people and trying new techniques.  I've never ventured into scrapbooking so to say I was outside my comfort zone is an understatement!!  However, Amy was always on hand to offer advice and I'm quite pleased with the results :)  You'll have to wait to see the scrapbooking pages though, as I still have a couple of finishing touches to do.

Onto the cards now, they were all made using the Ruffled Bloom rubber stamp set by Stampendous and this set was free with the workshop - yay!!

Card One - corrugated kraft card, 3D flower  (excuse the smudged Stickles - don't trust me with Stickles Amy!!):

Card Two - background and greeting stamped with Distress Inks, greeting mounted with 3D foam:

Card Three - stamped in a circle, using masks, to make a wreath:

 Card Four - stamped with Memento inks, ribbon added:

Here is the stamp set:


Amy also had some crafty stash to buy on the day, so I just HAD to have a nosy!  I was very controlled though and only bought what I REALLY needed!!!


Check out this cool water bag, it can double up as a pen/tool holder.

I'll be back to share the scrapbook pages as soon as they're finished :)

Have a lovely week xx
