Ladies That Craft

I have had a few enquiries lately about where the classes are based and what we do so I thought I'd take a few minutes to give you a bit of information.

Most of my classes take place at Parkwood Community Centre in Rainham, Kent and normally last two or three hours. The exception is the Crops which are all day and the Special classes like Creativity 101 or Special Edition Scrapbook Classes. These can last from 3 hours to all day depending on the project.

We do have loads of fun and you get to chat, drink tea and coffee and make new, like minded friends.

If you scroll down the pages of this blog you can see some of the many, many layouts, cards and projects I have taught (I have been teaching since 2005). I teach Scrapbooking, Card Making, Stamping, Art Journalling, Mixed Media, Mini books and loads more.

I am happy to travel to teach groups of people so if you have a crafty group and would like to have a chat please either complete the contact section on the right or email me at with your contact details and I will be in touch.

A couple of years ago I started this Blog to separate it from my personal one but you can still find more inspiration there as well

Thank you for visiting Ladies That Craft and if you have attended a class and would like to leave a review please use the comment section on this post. xx

Basil 2014

Now I have to be honest, I've had this pet paper for a quite a while but I didn't know whether to cut it up or use it as a background as it is quite busy. Decision made last Saturday as I used it for the second Scrapping Your Family layout.

and yes I do class my pets as family, after all they are with us all the time and certainly lead us a merry dance and so we need some sort of memory for when they are gone. (Don't worry, Basil is still very much around lol)

And some of the detail
Happy to use this cute little cartoon cat as well.
and a bit of bunting finished it off. 
Don't forget to pop across to my Design Blog  It's where I post all of the projects I don't make for class. xx

I have been doing loads honest

loads and loads of projects on the go at the moment but not many I can show as they are for Dt's. However the Scrapping Your Family group have been in full swing creating layouts last Saturday and having a bit of fun.

Here is the first layout we made
Everyone had a choice of papers in a variety of colours and we had some amazing results. I will post some of the finished work later this week.
Here's a bit more detail

Yes I still love the stitched circle stamps.
Second layout will be on here soon so keep checking back xxx

Last of the five layouts from the Scrapping Your Family Special class. Nice and simple but effective I think. Can't believe I was ever that young. Such a long time ago but we had some fantastic family holidays.
This life preserver is made from circles and I added die cuts as embellishments.
By the time you see this I will be just back from my hols and ready to make all those Christmas goodies.

Watch out for the Art Journalling group starting in October and the Scrapbook Canvas class too.

Dymchurch Beach

Another Project Life compromise but think it looks lovely. Red and blue work really well together and make this layout pop.
Once again I used die cuts.

and some hand cut embellishments.

Will do this again xx
