Cropping Success!

Our 1st crop is finished and I think I can safely say it was a great success. We thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. We inked, cut, glued, layered, embossed UTE'ed, spritzed, colour washed and stamped our way through the day. Congratulations to Louise who won the voucher for Mandels's art shop in castlebar (Happy Shopping Lou).

Check out the results of our days labour below!! Next one coming up middle to end of Feb (includ a demo by Anne on alcohol inks - really looking forward to that), so make a date in your diary.

Thanks for dropping by, call again


Anne's Crop Results

Anne is our resident card expert and produced these fab componants for a beautiful card using blank luggage labels, spritzer bottles, distress inks and a few more bits. A card the lucky recepient will treasure forever.

Phil's Crop Results

Phil showed us all up, by the sheer amount of Fab LO's she did, 4 of them, amazing!

Louise's Crop Results

Self confessed scrapaholic, and budding artisit, Louise produced this stunning layout and also had time to Alter Art the front cover of her album (how cool is that)!

Cathy's crop results!

I managed to complete a LO of my son and our dogs. I was even being very good, I did some journaling (handwritten too!). I had to make a few cards though, (a quick fix!)

The Big Freeze

We had snow on christmas day, A WHITE CHRISTMAS!

Couldn't resist posting these. Some pictures of South Mayo during the big freeze, taken 8am on Christmas morning, what a sky!! and then it SNOWED!!!

The Beginning of Something Wonderful

Well, this is it. The FIRST LO of the Mayo Papercraft Club. We scrapped this in the last class of our christmas 2009 workshop. The class members changed the title to suit their photos. Great Fun was had by all in coming up with imaginative titles. We used Basic Grey papers as well as Glossy Accents and a simple layout to get us started.
Below are some of the cards we also made during the workshops

These two are a christmas card and gift card combo!
