Beauty blooms from Within

Another layout just for me - I am on a roll and loving it !

I am playing with a 'simpler, cleaner' style and enjoying it, it won't last, I will revert to my cluttered shabby chic but a change is as good as a rest as they say.

The whole layout apart from the white background was entirely out of scraps. 

The two following cards are this weeks class cards.

I taught two different techniques with metal stencils.

Thankyou to Val who very kindly brought in some really delish cream cakes this week, I have never seen my card class so quiet lol.

I have a little mini book on my desk as I type and it needs a cover, so I will leave you for now and hopefully be back tomorrow with my book to share. 

Oooops one last thing before I go, thankyou Nicki for the yummy stash you brought me today xxx

  3. Dear Tracey, it doesn't matter what you call your art Shabby Chic or clean and simple. It is all Spectacular and Awesome!

  4. Gorgeous layout & love the cards, great colours used & love all the texture the stencils give them.
