Absolutely Awesome Acrylic

What a busy time it has been recently. I have barely had time to scrap and yet I have so many new papers to play with. I have been working with Acrylic pages this week and they result in beautiful pages but are quite a challenge too. I continually had to remind myself that the page is two sided.

The next workshop is on July 4th and I will be demonstrating the use of acrylic pages. We will complete two 12x12 acrylic layouts and 2 cardstock layouts as well as make some acrylic embellishments.

July is sure to be a creative month as we also have a Scrapaholics workshop on the 18th July and a Scrap Day on July 26. The Scrap Day is 12 hours of scrapping fun so be sure to register soon. Email me for further info What could be better than spending a cold wintery day scrapping away?

Here are a couple of acrylic tutorials

This one has some great tips to help you avoid errors! Always great to learn from other's mistakes.

Playing with felt

I have been doing a bit of experimenting with felt this week. I have been using it on layouts and also doing a bit of sewing. Winter is a great time for doing craft isn't it. I came across this fantastic tutorial by Noell Hyman on distressing felt with Tim Holtz distressing powders

I love Noell Hyman's tutorials, she has great ideas which she clearly explains and she creates wonderful layouts.
