Scrapbooking workshops at Flutterby Crafts

Did you see Catherine's latest scrapbook page of her little Angel? 

Well I thought I would show you some close up photos of the different elements that have created such a gorgeous scrapbook page.

Catherine has used some Bazzill Bling cardstock as her base page. 

She has used one of the Cricut cartridges which is available to use in the workshops to cut out the letters.  She has then run the lettering through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and layered them using foam pads.

The Handcut Flowers are by Colour Connection.  The smaller flowers and butterfly are punches by

Catherine has brought the elements together using a Rhinestone Swirl.

Pop Up Card by Nicky Hayden

Here is a delightful pop up card that Nicky demonstrated in a recent workshop.  It was a bit tricky to photograph but I hope you get from the picture how the sentiment pops up at the top of the card.

As you open the card the sentiment pops up!

Nicky has used some elements from the gorgeous Melissa Francis (Jewell) paper and the base card has been made using Core'dinations card.

Jewell Paper - 12" x 12"

 Here you can see she has cut out some triangles our of paper and attached some pearls to 
make the pretty bunting.

Finally, a pretty bow tied with some Teal Lace and other ribbons from the shop with a 
paper flower adhered to the centre.

If you would like to come along and join in some card making workshops, here are some dates to add to your diary for next week with Lynn or Nicky.
