It might come in useful one day...

A few weeks ago BH was sorting the summer house out, lots of things had got put in there for storage out of the garage when the roof started leaking. I drive BH mad because I keep everything and I mean everything, just in case we might need it!! I am a real hoarder!! lol While he was sorting things out I spotted our daughters old rocking chair from when she was a toddler, shes 26 now!! I asked him if he could clean it up for Ava. It has been in the conservatory a couple of weeks now and I had forgotten all about it. On Saturday afternoon Ben saw the rocking chair, and sat little Ava in it ...

she loved it!! It was worth keeping it all those years just to see her little smiling face!!

These beautiful flowers are what the lovely Jill bought me!! Thanks Jill I love flowers and they are gorgeous.

The special winter edition of Creative Cardmaking is in stock at £4.99 It has pages and pages of lovely papers for making your Christmas cards and some ideas on how to use them.

This week was the start of our new afternoon scrapbooking class. On Thursday we now have two, the first class is 1pm - 3pm and the second in the evening 6:30pm - 8:30pm. please email info@craftden.co.uk if you would like more information about either of these or any of our other classes.

In this weeks class we used a mix of Blonde Moment and Bazzill papers in pinks and lilacs with a couple of black flourishes.

The flourishes and large flower are Sizzix dies. Small flowers made using Paper Shapers large and small retro flower punches and Martha Stewart Cosmos punch with liquid pearl centres added. Stitch detail using white and black pens, to finish off. All products available from Craft Den.
