Heidi Swapp Color Magic Live day 3

I have really enjoyed this class with Heidi Swapp and the kit she sent us was amazing.  There are also extra's which is always a good thing so we can play with it after class.  It was a bit of a challenge to stay up till 2.30am in the morning to join in but wouldn't of done it any other way.  Was lovely to interact with like minded crafters and I a great time.  Our last project was a scrap book page and I used it for my holiday page.  Hope you like it..  Heidi, thanks for a great class and to Eric for all the techy stuff and your lovely media team.

Heidi Swapp Color Magic Live Class 2

Well this is the 2nd class of the Color Magic Live online class and it was to make one of Heidi Swapp's Memory Files.

As I am not that into black I changed the main folder colour to Broken China Distress Stain from Tim Holtz and the inside folder I coloured Antique Linen, highlighting them with some Mica powders which gave it a lovely shimmer.  

I also swapped the folders over and had the Chevron folder as the main folder/ 
Heidi also taught us how to put a mini album together and sticking it inside the chevron folder so that there is loads of space to put photo's and memorabilia.  Instead of sticking the pages together as I was loathe to lose the pretty sides of the double sided papers I used my sewing machine and sewed them together apart from the first one which was glued down as Heidi instructed.  Then I just glued the rest onto the first page.. 

I love the photo captions with the large titles attached to a large shape.

I also added some acetate pages as in my previous folder.   I have found these so useful when you have a leaflet or something similar that is double sided and you  want to show off both sides.  

Not sure what I will be using this file for yet but can't wait to fill it up with photo's.  Thank you Heidi for yet another fabulous class.  Can't wait till Saturday for the next one. xx

Heidi Swapp Color Magic Live

Well I was one of the first in line to sign up for the Heidi Swapp Color Magic Live online class first of which happened last night or early this morning for me!  I had to get up early the day before and stupidly stayed up for the show which started at 2.30am ish here in the UK.  It was really great though to talk to other like minded peaple and totally awesome to see Heidi in action live and having any questions answered there and then etc.  Not that I had any questions, I was too busy concentrating and taking all the information in.  The following cards are what I made.

I used Cosmic Shimmer Irridescent Mica Powder in Summer Grass and Mango Orange to colour the Heidi Swapp color magic card.  The colours took to the card brilliantly and I was able to blend them how I wanted.

 The first photo is an envelope using the kit we were sent for the class and Heidi talked us through it step by step.  I got most of the cards done but just had to finish them off this morning.
Instead of the black mist I used the Summer grass which matched really well with the rest of the colours I think. 

This silver one is my favourite.  Love the matchbook design and the use of the ribbon and stars.

Thanks for looking.  XX

Appledore August Craft Fair

Am really happy today as actually sold quite a few of my word books and albums I had made for this craft fair.  Here are a couple of photos of my table.

I also sold a few cards and leaves as well.  The Teddy Bear (in previous post) that somebody had asked me to make also sold but not to the person that ordered it.  Not sure what happened to the person who ordered it but it wasn't claimed last month so might make another one.
