Ladies Camera Club

11 Aug 2010

High Jinx plus giveaway

Blimey, that web show was something else, wasn't it? (if you caught it, that is). Although you can still watch it - becuase I recorded the whole comedy act right HERE

In hindsight I ought to have cut it off when I realised there was a cat-in-hells chance of using multiple cameras. Alas, as they say - the show must go on. Having died in front of a live audience I managed to nervously laugh my way through it and in the end, goodness prevailed! And next time, I know exactly what needs to be done to ensure a good production.

Anyhoo, here are the flowers that I made which are numbers 6-10 of 101 flowers.

Double layered flower using a heart punch

Grosgrain ribbon flower

Paper and Tulle

A grosgrain ribbon rose

A yo-yo flower made from fabric

I offered a giveaway of a Tonic heart punch so if you want to get your hands on it (remember, it makes more than lovey dovey hearts - they make petals and scallop edges and butterfly wings) then jot your name below.

Here is the full reveal of my layouts for Midnight Rooster. Shockingly poor lighting but still, thats 5 layouts and 4 cards for my collection.

Ok, off to watch Sandra Bullocks Blind Side on my own. Marko, Belle-Belle and the pooch have gone away for a few days and I have the large flat screen all to myself (and believe me - that is RARE!) . Ive treated myself to a pack of these babies to snuggle up with. I LOVE Burtons Coconut Mallows
Did I say I love them?

I shall be working on another CD called Pop up Paperie during the film which, I believe, will be quite a novelty since I have just finished a course in paper engineering (what a blow to the senses that was!). It will include some great templates, not just for cardmaking, but for those that like to faff with paper.

Finally the winner of the MR kit is: Furrypig - well done!

Aww the show was fine hun, you didn't die for a minute. It was real life and great fun to watch. Could have watched another hour at least :) Love your "Call Me" card. It's a fantastic mix of the clean and graphic style with a hint of the arty farty. Totally divine!! Pxx

SDCrafts said...

You are a star in many ways and don't need multi-camera angles to prove it!

Would love the punch but, more than that, it's always good to read your posts - such a tonic when all alone at home...which I am most days. But I can recall those wonderful gifts of time and space when my young family was away (and the ex too!)

Now it's just me and my Dearest. Marvellous.

Just watched your webcast as I was at work on the night. Thought you were a consummate professional when your other camera didn't work, these things happen and you handled it like a pro. Loved seeing how to make all those fabby flowers.
Nice to see Ellie too.
