. What a brilliant afternoon we all had. 2nd class using shaving foam and hair gel , I can now share the cards.
During the class I tried to open a new gel bottle, how do manufacturers expect people with any dexterity problems to open these bottles. I struggled and ended up flinging huge blobs onto poor Mo, one of the craft ladies pictured below.

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.
Spain is super hot at the moment, which apparently is quite unusual for the his time of year.
Normally I would cool down in the pool but my husband drained it to do some repairs, I just hope he gets it finished before August.
Lovely class on Friday. I demonstrated the shaving foam technique and hair gel
Place a piece of white card onto your shaving foam gently pressing down making sure the whole area is covered . Lift the card off and scrape the excess foam off then pat dry with kitchen roll. It leaves the most fabulous marble effect . This is a great technique for background papers.
We then used a tree stencil and made another background.
I will explain hair gel in my next post as I have another class on Friday, so will share pictures of cards made. Please leave a comment would love to hear from you. Take care and keep crafting love Julie xx

The ladies did very well considering it was so hot.
I normally bring cream cakes to the class but because of the heat I spoilt them with ice creams .

Hola hope you are all stocked up well with Easter eggs. I love Easter egg chocolate, and especially cream eggs. My lovey friend sue has brought me 24 cream eggs from England , I'm trying not to eat them and to use them in my craft projects buts it's so hard lol.
Anyway wanted to have a challenge so decided to make a floating teacup, I'd seen several on Pinterest but wanted to make mine alittle more unique . I decided to make my first one using parchment .
I've recently just purchased the Tina Cox flower plate , so I colored my own parchment paper using dorso crayons and essential oil .

Good evening, hope you are all fit and well.
Busy week so far, lunch today with the ladies of El Choppo.
It's a time for us to have a chat and to catch up with what's happening in the village.
I've only had time to do a little crafting. This is the first time I've used the thoughtful branches stamp set from stampin up . Thankfully they have matching dies which makes it so quick and simple to cut them out.

Hi everyone, hope you are all fit and well.
Brilliant workshop today with some amazing ladies and a special young girl called Samantha.
Today I taught them how to make 2 simple pop up cards . Make themed and a very girlie cupcake card.
Here's some fab pictures of the ladies in action
Now I'm wondering did they enjoy the cupcakes more than the crafting, most of the action shots seem to involve cake. Lol.
Our next workshop is 17th March 12-3 . Hope to see you all soon and thank you to all those attended. Special thank you to Karen who owns the shop for helping xx
