Stall set-up at Estom sports centre.

This is my stall at the Eston Show. I was  very pleased with this set up, and both my son and daughter helped me out. We had a great day, and so many people were pleased to have a local show. I look forward to our next visit here. Well done to the Ross papercraft Team ;-)
Our next show is at teh Bonus arena, Hull. Looking forward to seeing some of our regulars there. Been such a long time.

Chocolate Baroque Stamps & brayer

The stamps are Choclate baroque Haberdashery, I have also used flitter glue & gold flake for the embroidery scissor and on one of the hat pins. A touch of cream lace, buttons and stiching.

Main stamps again from Chocolate Baroque. (found the foilage stamp amongst my collection)

This week I have been playing with some gorgeous stamps from Choclate Baroque (available in store now) & my brayer. We have the lovely Lesley Wharton come to the shop and teach  techniques with stamping and using the brayer. Here are a couple of my attempts this week. Can you spot my mistake?

March's Club Project

Here is my monthly project for club members month March. This card is made using a die cut Basque, and a scalloped circle. Take the circle and score lines through the centre between each of the scallop edge. Then cut out 2 pieces (should be shaped like a heart) fold in mountain and valley folds (like a fan), and fasten down with d/s tape cover over with the basque.Can also use feathers for the skirt.
