My little crafting world....

Hi all
I'm a complete craft addict! I have a small business called Surrey Crafts teaching craft workshops from my studio in Esher, Surrey and at venues around the country. I teach mixed media, decorative painting, card making and papercrafts, jewellery making and creative embroidery classes.

Mini books for the September workshop

Here are samples of the second part of the workshops I'll be running on Saturday. Little bits of colourful fun that can be adapted, added to embellished to your hearts content! We'll use alcohol markers, paints, mica powders, stamps and inks to create these little lovies!

One side of the concertina fold-out

The other side of the concertina fold out, and a very different look. I'll enter these into the LEJ Designs Challenge as their current theme is 'layers' and this project has quite a few (inside & out!), the My Creative Moments challenge and Ali-Craft Blog (Great to see you at Ali Pally on Sunday honey!) as their Challenges are seasons/ Autumn and the colours I've used for the main sample are very Autumnal,  another Autumn challenge is on the Artistic Stamper blog and as the flower image on the front of the book is a 'twinchie' (2 inches x 2 inches) I'll also enter the 'Show us Your Twinchies' challenge as their theme is Autumn too!
Here is a pic with the other colour sample.
I'll also add this to the 'Pile it on Challenge' as these fit both the 'cool or warm' themes!

Card samples for my next workshop

Hi all
I've been making samples for my next workshop on the 28th September and I got a bit carried away with how many different ways you can put this owl card together.....I loved making them. And spookily enough, the night I finished the first sample, I woke at 3am to an owl hooting in the field behind us, which is a rare event (I think it was a sign of approval)!!!! We will also be making a mini album with concertina folds which I'll post pictures of next week once I've experimented a little more. These also fit with the Bird theme of Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stampers so I'll enter that for fun,
I've also entered this into the Fussy & Fancy Friday challenge as the theme is dies & punches and I used circle punches for Ollies eyes and a sizzix die for the branches/ leaves.
Sorry about the lighting - time is against me at the moment! I'll update the post with details after I've run the workshop. Hope you like these little cuties! Suz xxxx
