May's Crop Class - Influenced by Katherine

10:24 Karen 0 Comments

This year, at my crop, I am trying to push myself and my ladies to try something different each month.  This month the class was heavily influenced by the lovely Katherine Sutton.

It used texture paste (home made using baby powder and boy did it smell good) and the papers were from Pebbles Inc's Simple Life range, which Katherine had used for a retreat class. I did find the texture paste made the paper buckle a bit so used good old red tape to attach it to my cardstock.

I cut a stencil for each person and we added the texture past to the top left and bottom right of one of the papers. I also cut a Polaroid frame for each of the kits - still loving my silhouette!

The second page had a little fussy cutting and some punching of flowers and leaves.  Both titles were made using a set of letter dies which when combined with each other make script writing - found in a bargain basket and I know will be used often.

I was really pleased with the resulting two pages and I think the ladies were too.

Reasons to be cheerful:-

1. We have been for a lovely walk this morning and my fitbit says I have done 8858 steps already!

2. Plotting and planning for a new venture - more details soon.

3. Our lovely girl is almost at the end of her degree - just the final push.
