Portrait of a Lady Album - My Creative Spirit

Morning my lovelies, how are you?.  Good I hope on this wet and chilly Monday morning (well it is here) It's been a busy couple of weeks here, we took the shop off to the Craft Show at the Motor Cycle Museum last weekend.  It's the first time we've had a stand there and had a great time demoing our products and meeting lots of peeps too.  Huge thanks to Sarah & Cathy for all their help and support in setting up and running the stand, what a great team :-) and thanks to everyone who called by the stand too.  We'll be back at the show on Saturday 6th September.

This weekend I was out teaching a Graphic 45 workshop with Wendy (Daisy's Jewels and Crafts) and the lovely ladies and gent who came along too.  We crafted my Curio Cabinet into shape using a variety of Graphic 45 collections and had a whole load of fun along the way.  Here's a few pics of them coming together - can you spot the Tropical Travelogue papers David had in his stash.......

Thank you Wendy for arranging the event and to everyone who came along too.  Look forward to seeing you all again at the next one. 

New Product 

If you love the Portrait of a Lady collection you may be interested in making my latest album from the collection. This papers in this collection are just gorgeous to craft with and give you a truly vintage feel to your projects. The album combines the 12 x 12 papers, patterns and solids, ephemera cards and other elements, is full of interactive pages, places for your photos photos and journaling too. I love the colours in this collection and really enjoyed designing the album.  The PDF Tutorial is now available on the website.  
I'm off to catch up on all that came in over the weekend so will sign off for now.  Have a great rest of your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again later in the week :-) Cx
