A Trip Back Home Layout

This is going to be a quick post as I'm getting boxes packed up ready for the Open Day tomorrow! A delivery of new stock landed today as well so it's been busy, busy here!!

It is very rare that I get a photo of my hubby - he is a little camera shy to say the least and any photos I do get are usually with H in the shot too! I love this one taken whilst on a trip to visit family!

The main supplies are Echo Park with some Thickers letters, grosgrain ribbon and gems to finish.

Although a fairly simple, graphic design there is lots of texture with the felt letters, glitter chipboard letters, ribbon, gems and some of the stickers are layered up to give some dimension.

This is the page the class at the Open Day will be based on but you will be able to change the colours and papers to suit your photographs if you wish.

Have a fab evening!

Easel Cards ~ as seen at the Demo!

I hope everyone who came along to the Open Day last Saturday enjoyed themselves. Jenny's Easel Card Demonstration was very popular and I think all the ladies watching picked up a few new tips, techniques or ideas to go home and try.

As promised here are the cards Jenny made ....

This super cute easel card is the Christmas Cat's whiskers Stamp Set 

Jenny used the Christmas Bears clear stamp set and MME Breaking Free paper to create this twisted easel card.

A close up of the dimensional die cut & punched snowflakes

I think this one is probably my favourite ~ the image is from the Elfs 1 stamp (not yet on the website but will be very soon) and the paper is Fancy Pants Designs Little Sprout (in the sale!!)

The last card is the other image from the Christmas Cats stamps. These stamps really are such good value for money at £5.95!!

The other main supplies for all cards are nestabilities, promarkers and stickles.

To see more of these cards and also Jenny's tutorial for full instructions on how to make easel cards pop over to her blog.

Our next Open Day is on Saturday 29th October, full details can be found here, a date for your diary!!

Hi Everyone

Lots of you have bought one (or in some cases two!!) of the grab boxes and I hope you have enjoyed creating some lovely cards and scrapbook layouts with your new papers.

The very talented Jenny didn't waste any time in cutting into her new papers and made this beautiful card with the My Minds Eye Little Flowers paper from her grab box.

She also made this gorgeous box with another sheet of paper from her box.

For details of how she made both the card and box and to see more of her crafting projects why not pop over to her blog.

I'd love to see what you make with your grab box goodies or in fact anything purchased from the S J Crafts Shop. E mail a photo or a link to your blog. My e mail is:  sarah at s j papercrafts dot co dot uk (obviously remove the spaces and change the dot to a .) Just don't want loads of those webrobot thingys e mailing me too!!! lol!
