Perfect 3 and a Stocked Shop!

Hello friends

The numbers proved very popular yesterday!  They will be on their way to those who ordered.

Today a scrapbook page.
I do not make that many scrapbook pages nowadays but I really enjoy them.
This one uses Tim Holtz papers and quite a few dies including
I kept the colours muted by inking the lace.  
Also a little bit of embossing on the die cut with a Swirl stamp.
That's my special 3 in the photo, Bella looking again a bit different.
I did smile at the comments yesterday about how busy I am...I probably am quite mad to take on 
a writing class but I figured if you wait for time to do things you never find it!
The class was really good, I felt like I was back at school 
(I'm probably one of those rare people that actually liked school!) 
The homework this week is to write about 'Stars' - in any shape or form, whether it be the ones in the sky, celebrities or in my case...the first thing that came to my mind was die templates! 

My afternoon chatting and demoing in Bexley was brilliant, such a lovely group of ladies and 
thank you for the yummy cake! 
Thank you to those who booked classes too - I will look forward to meeting up with you again.

Finally - my Amazon Shop has got a little more stock - more die templates and stamps -
including the A6 Alpha Writing and Kraft Photo Corners that I used on this gift tag.
Today I'm planning Friday Die Day and probably fitting in one or two other crafty things...
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, your 3 favourites on the scrapbook page are lovely, just lovely And your tag really stands out. I must thank you again for all your efforts yesterday in getting me the numbers for the Advent Frame, you sure are a great lady. I would love to read your "Stars" piece, I bet you will be able to "wax lyrical" on dies.

Hi Christine, I had to laugh when I read about the first thing that came to mind when "stars" were mentioned...hehehe.
What a lovely picture on your scrapbook page. Love the antique lace and the colour matches perfectly. I never seem to see such pretty antique lace around where I live.
Have a lovely day.

Morning Christine, Beautiful layout today, it is 'right up my street', I love 'anything Tim' and the colours complement each other beautifully, and the embossed swirl was gorgeous. I loved everything about your layout.
Good luck with your 'homework', if you write about 'star dies' then you are 'home and dry' (so to speak ha ha).
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine,
Love your layout for the scrap page I can appreciate it even though I don't scrapbook, keep saying to myself that I ought to do a family one for the grandchildren.
Love the tag too.
As for your homework it just goes to show that your brain is programmed on craft. Good luck with it.

Hi Christine. Lovely layout and lovely photo. I've never tried scrapbookimg, always too busy making caards but this does give me inspiration as like most people I have a box of memories in my wardrobe just crying out to be used.
I think you'll definitely get a "star" in you essay this week.

Morning Christine - so right you are if we wait for the time to do things it will never happen. Fab 'scrap' page, i love how you layered lots of different shapes - not something i would have thought of doing.

Redanne said...

Gorgeous layout Christine with your three stars, really lovely. Love the tag too of course, my class date is getting ever closer, so looking forward to it! Life is too short NOT to do the things we want, so well done again for taking the course. Funny how we can make up time when we really need to find a bit more......Crafty hugs, Anne x

Hi Christine, Late today, been sorting out the garden shed to make room for the logs for the woodburner. Lots of rubbish to take down to refuse centre!Gave me feel good factor when completed.
Beautiful layout, your boys take a good photo and it goes without saying that the 'third' member does too.
Going over to peek at the shop, so best crafty wishes from me C x.

This is a wonderful layout Christine and I adore your tag. You never seem to struggle at all with your lovely tags, where do you keep getting the inspiration.
Have you heard anything about the Wax paper yet? I hope you'll forgive me asking, I don't want to be a nag but I was just wondering if they had given you any idea on delivery.
Hugs Linda xx
