Wedding Bells


Hope everyone is well, thought I would share with you what I had been up to this weekend, not a bit of crafting in sight!. Gareth's cousin got married, I was a bridesmaid and Gareth was the best man. I did make the wedding invites for them, which I did enjoy doing after I had sorted out the double sided tape issue, should of bought more rolls of the red tape you can't go wrong with that! stick with what you know ;) lol!
The stamp I used was one of Lindsey Mason's stamps, unfortunately I don't have my invite at the moment as somebody is borrowing it and I didn't take a photo of the invite doh! but when I get it back I will post it on here.
So here are a few pictures of the day, shame the weather was a bit nippy, wet and windy but we all had a fantastic time and wish them all the happiness in the world.

Here we are doing our poses!

my lovely flowers, aren't they gorgeous?!

The wedding cake- the 2 dogs are off  Patch(Dalmatian) & Phoebe(lecher), Paul & Jenny's babies.

Well as you all know now Dawn has left QVC,  so I just like to say thanks to her & Jane for letting me play..oops I meant working on some of the kits for QVC, think the ranger hour I did was the best even though it was a manic 24 hours! but I got to play with all the Tim Holtz stamps and inks etc that was on the show, shame I couldn't keep them :(
 I never thought in my dreams I would ever had any work on telly, including my scrapbook pages which I know Jane loves lol! ;) My doggies and others had there few moments of fame including my Niece, Lucy which I know she loved.

Things I've made at Lindsay's workshop

Hellooo there!
Hope you all had a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend, I spent Sunday on a workshop with Lindsay Mason at Dawn Bibby Design Studios making cards, couldn't be happier! The day was filled with fun and laughter with Shelia, Lindsay, David, Jolene and my Mum of course and everybody else who was there but I don't know your names :)) 
In the morning we used Lindsay lovely new stamps

 Have to say My Mum made the yellow flower in this one, but i did do some cutting out for her too;0)
 On this one below I tried shadow stamping which can make your eyes a bit funny,as Shelia found out but i think it's effective.
 In the afternoon it was a steampunk theme, which I have to say it's not everyone cup of tea, including my mum's, "it's a bit too way out for her", as she says. I've only just started steampunk but I find you can do what you want and it works, it can be as way out as you want! 

A few weeks ago I was on another class of Lindsay's, do you get the feeling I like Lindsay's work!?!
We made a grungebook the cover and the sown in the pages (think this is my best sowing as well!) Really enjoyed making this, you can put whatever you want inside, so hopefully one day I will ;0)

              We added Tim Holtz charms onto the spine, it give a little jingle every time you pick it up hehe!

                                               Hope you like what you've seen,
                                                              Take care
