Stick It Down

Saturday 17 December 2016

Hey there, just a quick layout from me today using paper strips from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection. I followed a fab sketch by the Stick it Down girls - the large letter really appealed to me :)

I recently took a Paige Evans class and she taught us to cover a large shape in paper strips so I re-hashed the same technique on this letter.

GoGo Getaway

Tuesday 22 November 2016

A few weeks ago it was the EPIC GoGo Getaway. Not only am I on the Design Team now but earlier this year Janice and Lorraine asked me to become a business partner, which I happily accepted. We all worked really hard to ensure the event was a huge sucess, which of course it was :)

We had a number of challenges that I took part in over the course of the weekend, some I did before the weekend but some I did there. Here are my layouts:

And these are the two classes I designed and then taught:

These two were the same class, but two separate layouts:

Sadly that is GoGo Getaway over until March 2017 but hopefully that will come round very quick!

Thanks for stopping by
