Wear Crafts Craft n Chat Crop - October 31st, 2014

Wear Crafts Craft n Chat Crop - October 31st, 2014






Well it seems far too long since photos were shared from our lovely Friday evenings... but hopefully normal service has resumed. It was the October kit launch tonight and there are a very limited number of spare kits available from the Wear Crafts Creative Space in Langley Park and from the Ross Papercraft Show at Seaburn this Sunday. Happy scrapping, jenx

Wear Crafts Scrapbook Kit - Twelve Pledges for 2014

Wear Crafts Scrapbook Kit - Twelve Pledges for 2014
The October Kit Launches today and the pledge is to be too noble for anger.
The papers are from the Echo Park 'Family Reunion' collection and lend themselves perfectly to heritage scrapping - especially those pictures from the 70s. On the other hand, if you like your caravans... well you should see the reverse of one of the sheets! The kit is available online from www.wearcrafts.co.uk or at the Wear Crafts creative Space in Langley Park DH79TT. Happy scrapping, jenx

Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme... White Christmas

Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme... White Christmas

The Woodware Team have been creating wonderful works based on the theme White Christmas and there are some truly stunning ideas on the blog here so make sure you pay a visit!
I used three sheets of white 12x12 card to create this layout and if you are a regular at our Scrapbook Layout Class, you will know exactly how to do it!
To create the flowers and leaves, the Woodware circle, scallop circle and plum punch were used. Glitter domes, stickles and Chippies completed the clean and simple look.
All of the Woodware items used are available at the Wear Crafts Creative Space in Langley Park DH79TT. We are open every Wednesday and every Thursday between 10am and 2pm, so why not pop along to join us for some crafting fun. Happy scrapping, jenx

12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Fresh Cut by Basic Grey

12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Fresh Cut by Basic Grey
I have met some of the nicest people ever since I set up Wear Crafts. I felt like I 'knew' the lovely Virginia through her blog and she was very virtually supportive of me throughout the whole process of setting up my little spot of crafty heaven. She gave me a virtual good talking to one day (she probably can't even remember doing it, but I do, as it made a great difference to me one day and stopped me giving up). I said to her that day, if we are ever 'big' enough to have a scrapbooking design team, you are so on it! And here she is, my lovely Virginia, Wear Crafts Design Team Member, at our Creative Space in the Summer. If you would like to visit our Creative Space, we are based in Langley Park DH79TT. Details of our crops and classes are on the website www.wearcrafts.co.uk and on our Facebook page. Happy scrapping, jenx

12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Basic Grey Fresh Cut

12x12 Scrapbook Layout Using Basic Grey Fresh Cut
This layout uses one of my favourite paper lines of this year... floral, fresh and fruity (just like me and the lovely LesleyG!!!). The story behind this one takes place in April... I was getting the caravan ready for a week away... cleaning the house from top to bottom... preparing for my date with the Divine Mr B at the Metro Arena... I stunk of bleach and hadn't washed my hair as I was cleaning (I know!)... then there was a knock at the door and boy did I scream! There was Lesley and her lovely daughter in the flesh. We chatted all afternoon like we had known each other for ever. It is so nice to know that someone you think is a right belter actually is when you meet them in real life! Join us at the Wear Crafts Creative Space in Langley Park DH79TT for crafty fun every week. Check out the details on the website www.wearcrafts.co.uk Happy scrapping, jenx

Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme... Christmas Decoration

Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme... Christmas Decoration
The theme over on the Woodware blog has been Christmas Decorations and there are some amazing projects over there for you to peruse right here The photograph in this scrapbook layout shows DS2 reading the card he wrote for Father Christmas in 2010. The photo is very muted so I figured subdued papers were required. I used the Holly Branch and Bird stamp to capture the decoration theme and pick out the Christmas tree peeping through in the photograph. The long thin Holly stamp creates a wonderful border and the stamp i used for the December 25th title is perfect for this page. The Poinsettia corner makes a lovely embellishment for a photograph. Woodware ribbon and brads completes the layout. I used Stampendous Fine Detail embossing powder, Watermark embossing pad from Clearsnap and Mixed Media Inks in Leather and Truffle swept over the edges added to the aged look.
Up close for the detail....
