Cumbria Crafters.

Good afternoon all, 
thanks for joining me on this lovely Tuesday afternoon. 
Welcome to our new blog follower, good to have you join us Heather.

I am just packing my bags ready for our Hazel Grove workshops tomorrow , 
and I realised that I haven’t shared the photos from Saturday with you. 
It was another full class, even though a couple of our regular Crafters were in hospital. 
Get better soon ladies. 
It was great to have Maggie join us  again, glad she arrived safely from Spain. 

We started by some scene building, and using a fabulous border stamp from Lavinia to create the fields.

Look at these beauties. 

Then it was out with Billy Brayer and the Gelli plate. 

I love using the smaller shaped plates 

Plus the larger 6x6 plate to make backgrounds 

The ladies really made me so proud with their fantastic cards 

These two were slow to the piano...!!! lol...

But you can see why, with all the decoupage flowers. 
Such beautiful cards. 

After tea and cakes, thanks Freda and Sheila, we made something a bit different. 
A book mark . 

Now some ladies took this home to finish, 
I will be checking up on you...

I still find it amazing that we can make such wonderful things from just a piece of white card. 

Just another reason why I love what I do. 
Karl is on his way home, so hopefully we can have a cup of tea in the garden before walking the dogs .

Take care all 
Much love and hugs 
Jo Xxx

Lovely day of crafting. We couldn't get those great results without your help and inspiration.
Enjoy your cuppa and dog walk.
