Good Bye Stamp Attic

This is a sad post, on Sunday I went to the last ever class held at the Stamp Attic in Wantage as Wendy and Colin are retiring and who better to take the last class with than Kate Crane.

The day was all about Stampotique, making backgrounds using paint with a brayer, dylusions ink sprays and distress ink pads and course lots of stencils and stamps had to be used basically getting very messy!

We used the backgrounds to make hangings, journal pages, cards, bookmarks or ATC's then used Kate's new Stampotique stamps and many other Stampotiques for the main image.

I made a small hanging and a tag hanging....



Thank you Kate for another lovely class and thank you Stamp Attic and Wendy and Colin for all the great classes you have held over the years and the wonderful shop you always kept stocked with all those goodies, we shall miss you terribly (although my bank account won't!!!)

National Scrapbooking Day

As National Scrapbooking Day coincided with our Bristol Scrappers Crop I felt I should do some pages, getting into the flow I finished 6 pages.  I usually look on line for inspiration that I can 'scrap lift' and came across a layout that would go well with one of my photo's.  When the day was finished Amy looked at my layouts and said I did one like that, I showed her the photo I was working from and it was her layout I had found on the web, just proves you don't need to search the web, just check out what your friend's are doing and pinch their ideas!!!!

My finished pages from the day ....





Thank you Amy for the inspiration!





 Happy Scrapping (or scrap lifting!!).
