Zentangle, doodling on a mission.

A cross between meditation and art. It's new to me but I had a go after seeing a friend (Karen Gipp) post about it on Facebook. I really enjoyed it and think I'll do more.

This was my first attempt. I think its rather cellular and organic.

The handbag!

There has been a craze within the crafting communities that I frequent. In fact we have many, where somebody makes something fab then we all have a go. One of the latest has been a really cute handbag. It fit three 4" cards inside and is a really sweet gift. (Or a fab toy for my girls who have both made one.) I found a video tutorial here by a lady called Chris Slogar. I used this as the bases for one of my classes using new papers from the new Stampin  Up annual catalogue. I'm slightly addicted to the bags and will be making more at my next classes too! (Different papers though.)

I just love these paper, well the are purple! The teal colour is called Bermuda Bay, it is gorgeous One of my new favourites I think.

The idea for the great friend card came from a lady called Linda Kasparian who posted a picture on a Facebook group I belong to. I love it.

Any ladies due to come to my next Thursday evening classes will be having a hug sneak peek!

Scrapberry's cards.

Well, my friend Dawn from Dawn's Inspirations did an amazing job demonstrating the Scrapberry's paper collections on Create and Craft. So I've got the samples back and I thought I'd give you a close look at them, with some, hopefully, better pictures.

These cards were made using the Elegy collection. It's a quite romantic with reds, greys and black.

These cards were made using the Fairy Tale collection. This is a beautiful set of papers, and having two girls who are fairy mad at the moment these papers are just perfect.
