Catching up!!

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be part of Sarah's Card's retreat at Warrington. A fantastic time was had by everyone who attended - I'm only just recovering now!! - and we got to take part in 6 wonderful classes created by some of the Design Team & their glamorous assistants!!

Me & the girls - still scrapping inbetween classes!!

Group photo borrowed 'with love' from Sarah's Blog!!

And now to show you the results of all the Design Team's hard work:

Tracey's class - lots of lovely layered stickers & tags

Ifa's class - gorgeous misting - just love that chicken wire!! - and the slightly tricky but ever so effective American Craft Flutterbys!!

Claire's class - very clever 'distressed & weathered' chipboard window/shutters

Helen's class - how to create chevrons and who can resist a bit of glitter?!

Lou's class - lots of separate elements coming together to create a page full of texture & layers!

Last but by no means least Jen's class - a really clever way of creating a sunburst effect using lots of different papers.

I loved every class for something different - amazing how many different tips & tecniques you can pick up. Each designer had something new to offer which was brilliant.

I even managed to produce a couple of my own pages in amongst the fun & games, shopping and eating!!

All I can say is roll on next year!! Thanks for looking xx


  1. Well done on completing all your class layouts Emma, they all look fabulous and even having time to do extra ones too. I totally agree with you, roll on the next one.
