Galway Spring Extravaganza

Hi guys, as promised here's the photos of the cards from the Promarker and Sugar Nellie Class on Sunday at the Galway Spring Craft Extravaganza. Can't believe the weekend is over already, not fair! Roll on SEPTEMBER!!!
Hope you got to spend at least some time at the demo table with the fab Becky Dreyer, she kindly allowed me to take some photos of some layouts and cards for my inspiration station, happy days!!!
Thanks also to the fab Sarah who shared some great tips as well as some GORGEOUS to die for brads, thanks, thanks, thanks.
Finally thanks for all the kind comments about the class and demo that I gave, it's great to get feedback (especially good ones!!)
Now for the shopping: I splurged and bought some of the new Tim Holtz Die Cuts and of course some stamps that I can't wait to play with (fellow croppers get to play too, next crop 22nd May).
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment,
Happy Crafting

Extravaganza Sneak Peaks

Hi everyone, here is a sneak peak of the cards we will be doing this sunday at the Galway Spring Extravaganza. We have two oh so cute suger nellie images to play with and lots of tips on the fabulous promarkers. For information on class bookings and the timetable check out www.wix.com/galway/extravaganza

Looking forward to seeing you there. Cathy.

Hints:- Manga, texture, and handbag bling!!

Peak A Boo!!!!

p.s. Generally a class will provide everything you need to complete a project, however handy things to have in a class are scissors, glue stick, glue dots, double sided tape, craft knife and/or guillotine and your favourite paper/card stash, stamps and inks. That way you will maximise the enjoyment you will get from any class that you take part in. Happy Crafting!

Well it was a great day yet again. Stash was shared, tips were swapped and lots of fun was had at the make and take station with ultra thick. After lunch the tags, lo's, domino's and inks etc. came out, i'm sorry I didn't take a pic of all the stuff on the tables, ah well next time! (roll on the 22nd May).

As usual Phil produced fab lo's, lots of fab lo's. I wish I could manage to complete more than one at a crop never mind 6!

Anne's selection of fab embellishments, not a mad hatter in sight! The pic doesn't do them justice!

Lost my mojo half way through, is there anything worse!
