I did my first craft class yesterday....there were two ladies who are both good crafters so was a bit worried that they would find the class too easy! we did decoupage which I know both have done before ... but I think we all learned something,  both learnt how to tie bows without the use of a bow maker and also with out them being lopsided as often happens! Looking forward to next mondays crafting lesson should hopefully be more ladies too :-)

We made a card using the decoupage and papers from Trimcrafts Mimi range.

OK! Where does the time  go??? Belated Happy New Year to my followers! Let's hope it's a good one for all of us :-)
Have been looking into making and selling special gifts such as Diaper cakes, Towel Cakes etc Also going to start up making wedding stationery, favour boxes and wedding ring cushions, I am also hoping to start doing small card making classes from home......

Here are some of the samples I have made for My Craft Studio since christmas -
These are from the Setting The Scene - Shop Fronts - think my favourite has the be the black and white one.

The next few are from the My Craft Studio Simply Sentiments - these show you that you can make a card from Inserts

The last one is my favourite design I love the colours in it, although with the gift bag and notelets I changed the colours of the card using the MCS program.

Diaper Cakes

Having made some Rag Wreaths prior to xmas I thought I would have a go at making Diaper cakes to start (Towel cakes and cupcakes will be next) This is the first Diaper cake I have made.
