What a fabulous year of Workshops we have shared with so many of our wonderful customers....
In August we all got hooked on yet more of the 'mixed media' trend.
Miss Lisa (aka Lisa Greedy) and Cassie (McCumstie - DD Member) led the Workshop day and everyone was inspired with layouts and canvas art.
We are so pleased to see how many of our Workshop Lovelies have been 'playing' with all their new found techniques and creating some gorgeous layouts and canvas art.
Miss Lisa showed everyone how to take wrapping paper and transform it into a fabulous background by adding layers of paint, gesso, masks and stamps .....what a great backdrop for a favourite layout!
Our August Workshop had us revisiting our Hybrid approach and showing off our new Silhouette Cameo Machine.
This is always a fun way to approach scrapbooking with everyone having a fab time
re-inventing digital images and cutouts to make some their mini albums.
The workshop kits were 'full to the brim' with great items from Typo, Etsy, lots of different Washi tape and so many embellishments that everyone was 'spoiled for choice'.
We introduced the beautiful papers from Amy Tangerine and it was great seeing everyone turning their albums into their own creations!
The star of the show was the beautiful vintage layout Miss Lisa taught - this had everyone 'rummaging' through their photos for that perfect 'black & white' vintage pic they had been hoping to scrap for ages.

Sorry it has taken us so long to get back to blogging but, we took some time out while Miss Lisa and the Design Team Gals caught their breathe after all the work this year while Lizzie has been undergoing her Chemotherapy regime - so thanks for your patience.
Our Christmas Workshop has just been announced and we hope all our Workshop Lovelies will be back for our last date of the year - put it in your diary 2 December 2012 and here is a link to what we have planned.......
