Start the New Year with Friends

First class of 2017 was really fun and it was great to see everyone again. The theme for this first class was FRIENDS and I made two layouts for inspiration.

This is the first one
Thanks to Marta for the beautiful free paper she shared in our group.
Here is some more detail from the layout. 

If you want to see a quick video showing the process please pop across to my personal blog Julie Wilson Designs. Thank you for looking xx

Looking back

Yes it's that time of year again when I look back on the past year and reflect. On a personal note it has been pants but the one thing that has kept me going all year are the people.who came to my classes and the wonderful work they did in class.

As I don't want this post to go on forever I've chosen just a few of my favourite class projects of 2016 in no particular order. Enjoy xxx 

See you in 2017 xxxx

Christmas Children

Lots of people had asked me to make a Christmas layout for younger children but everyone wanted specific things relating to their grandchildren/children included. With this in mind I decided to do two layouts, one girl and one boy, but to keep them really simple so that additional embellishments and wording could be added afterwards.
This is the boy layout.
With some of the detail (I used different punches for each one.)

Was really delighted that the bike border was part of this paper.
And then the little girl layout
Well every little girl loves a dinosaur right?

The photos for both of these were free images from the Internet because I am waiting to take some special photos this year. 
So that's it, the last layout of 2016. Watch this space for new and exciting classes in 2017 plus don't forget to check out my own blog in the new year as it will be a lot more active. xx

O Christmas Tree

Again a really easy card and I managed to use the tree and greeting from the free stamp set from Creative Stamping.
That's the last of the Christmas cards. One more Christmas layout tomorrow then its time to bring in the new. So many ideas and so little time xxx

Yes I know its after Christmas but I ran out of time to post these and they are so cute. 
As always the colouring in was easy using StampArts stamps and inspiration gallery. Will use these again next year. xx
