I am so sorry that I haven't been around for most of this week! I have tried to comment a bit but haven't posted. The first three days of this week it did nothing but pour down here in South Wales and I can tell you that didn't do anything for my self motivation!
I'm going to my first scrapbooking crop this Saturday. It's being organised by Sharon who was one of my ACL Managers. The crop is being held at The Rest which is convalescence home in the seaside town of Porthcawl which is about 10 miles from my house. It starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm. There are going to be 10 ladies at the crop most of whom I go to scrapbooking classes on a Thursday morning with. Sharon has asked me to do a demonstration in an attempt to sell some of the stock that I'm holding so I have chosen to make a scrapbooking layout using only 1 set of Spellbinders dies the Classic Octagons. I have started to prep my pieces for the layout - preparation picture below and I will post the finished layout and some photos from the crop on Saturday.
These are a few of the preparation pieces. I intend on covering the whole background with the octagon pieces then putting the little octagons in the diamond shaped gaps between the octagons.
I haven't done many layouts with only myself in the photo. Most are of the most scrapbooked boy in the world - Sam! Not sure what I'm going to tile this! Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
This photo was taken at a Hotel in Swindon where I was away for the weekend on a scrapbooking retreat!
Hope you like my preparations so far!
Just to let you know I have a few Memory Box dies listed in my Ebay Store. They are the following:
FLOWERING CHRISTMAS TREE
If you haven't tried Memory Box dies before they are extremely high quality and amazing designs.
They are made from 100% Craft Steel and can be used on the following:
Use as you would a Spellbinders Die:
Thanks for all of your recent wonderful comments I love to read them!
Have a good evening
