Autumn Already

Hi Everybody,

Hasn't this year gone by so quickly and here we are in Autumn again .... with Christmas on the horizon.

I have made a start on my cards for the Jolly Season already and that is not like me as I usually wait until summer is well out of the door before I start.

Many of those cards have been added as a post to my Blog pages at

Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls.

My Classes

The classes on Spellbinders in the The Art Studio continue to do really well as many of you are now collecting these dies and really making them work for you.

So my Class list is now 2 Spellbinders classes and 2 Spectrum Noir with a third Spellbinder Class due at the end of this month.

If you would like to join in and really get the most from either of these then click the link and look in Product Specific for both Spellbinders and Spectrum Noir classes.

And The Art Studio are now offering a payment plan so that you can choose the classes that you wish to take and spread the cost. The Art Studio Class

During the month I added a tutorial on

Creating a Frame with Spellbinders
and the result is a very pretty card.

It is easy to do but uses a quite a few layers.

And then I added another tutorial for those who don't have Spellbinders and that one was called simply ...
Making A frame

It produces a similar kind of look for your cards but is all done by hand instead of without the aid of the dies.

Whichever way you decide to make this card you will not be disappointed with the result and you can have all the fun dressing your card up how ever you wish.

Flowers Ribbons and Pearls

Hopefully the Blog continues to be a source of inspiration and a new card is added daily.

With the blog I give you the links for where to look at the items I have used on that particular card.

Then where you then buy it from is up to you. Shop around for the bargains.
