Crafteire, Scrapbooking, Photos and more...

Another Crafteire has come and gone :-( This year Ber and I decided to stay in the hotel and we weren't disspaointed! I got to start each of the mornings with a swim (not laps, hahaha). It was down for a lovely breakfast and then the scrapbooking began :-)

I was lucky that my classes were the first 2 in the morning, so by 11 I was Freeeeeeeeee! Everyone who got up out of their leaba's for the first class got a heart cog badge as a thank you! I think the class went down well, and it certainly was fun!

My 2nd Class was all about using multi photos and newspaper print, to cover embellishments, not just the print but titles, dates, headlines. Cover in Utee or dimaond glaze to give a great shiney surface :-)

Some portrait shots at Crafteire. I love this casual shot of Annamaire, plenty of space for journaling or a title to the left.

Love the tones of this photo of Kate... kinda Pre-Raphaelite. It was taken beside a natural light source (a glass door, hahahaha)

As ever Kate and Mireille organised a great event! It was brilliant to catch up with so many carfty women and get to know and make new friends! Roll on Crafteire 2010!

"heart cog"

Oh I love felt, especially this gorgeous 100% wool "green" felt, dyed using eco-friendly processes. I've been busy lately making a collection of badges to sell online. The first collection is called "heart cog", they represent how the heart works physically and emotionally, Awwwwww!

If you like the "heart cog" collection then keep your eyes peeled as they will be going on sale in 2 weeks time along with other collections. In the meantime everyone who is in my 9am class Bouquet of Love at Crafteire will be the first to get their own little badge :-)
