Hi folks, Jen G here. There’s nothing like a weekend away with like-minded crafters to boost the productivity! In between the classes; the bingo; the quiz; the raffle; the food; the shopping; the gossip; the food; the shopping; the gossip and the shopping… we actually got some layouts completed too (well some of us did – I shall mention no names DT girls!)
I seriously over packed as usual. I had a box full of papers with me that I didn’t even touch. I had planned to start with my latest Studio Calico purchase and move on from there, but my latest purchase lent itself to 5 pages. When ordering I couldn’t decide between “Here & There” or “Snippets” so both fell into my basket. I mixed and matched the papers and chipboard arrows / cameras to create these pages.
On my second page I needed a pop of orange which I found in the Pebbles Basic range. These papers are SO versatile. The colours lend themselves to so many other ranges. I used the Apricot Dot paper to matt the whole photo area and to cover the DIY Thickers.
On my second and third pages I dipped into my Washi tape collection to add some extra detail. The shop has a huge collection of them here.
On this page I used the “Snap” Typeset letter stickers again. I use these so much that I am already on my second packet. Did you know that if a product is out of stock on the new website, you can now sign up to receive an email notification when it is back in stock. How handy is that?
This last page has a banner on it from a Pebbles “Basic” Banner & Twine Kit. I spotted these at the last minute at the retreat and scooped them up ready for a future blog post, so watch this space.
We would all love to see how productive any delegates were at the retreat last weekend, so don’t forget to leave us a link to your work. And those of you who couldn’t make it – what have you been creating recently? Leave us links to your blogs or online galleries in the comments below.
