Seasonal Bells

Good Morning! I am so late posting this today! This weekend has been a bit of a blur and consisted of university visiting, a peg wreath class, cricket club presentation evening and then all day Sunday helping Ross with a filming project for his portfolio. Phew, I am glad its the school holidays this week!

Today I am sharing a card I made at a couple of workshops I ran earlier in the month for lovely customers of mine who kindly hosted them for me. 
I used the Seasonal Bells bundle which is such a good value bundle and is great for non-christmas cards too. I will be sharing more makes with this card throughout the week for you.

Just a little reminder that the Presents and Pinecones papers that I have used on this card are still available on our BUY 3 and get a 4th FREE paper promotion for the month.
I do hope you like todays make, I will be back with more!

Peg Wreath Class

 Good Morning folks and welcome to my blog today! Today I am sharing a few photos from a lovely class I ran yesterday afternoon and one which I will be repeating on Saturday 29th October. You can attend either at 10am or 2pm, the choice is yours but I do need to know ASAP if you would like to attend!
Here is my wreath that I made back at the beginning of September. It was the star of the show at my weekend retreat back in mid September and has had a lot of love in the Studio since.
 I promised the ladies a little cream tea as part of the class so I set out the vintage china and milk bottles for the pink lemonade, we even had Christmas napkins too!
 A little Christmas chocolates on at their places were another little touch from me!
 Here is the little cream tea I supplied for my ladies. Scones, mini mince pies and stollen bits, ooo I do love Christmas food!
And would you like to see some of my ladies efforts? Well they ALL did amazing and here is Kathy's finished project
And here is Karen's finished project! Aren't they just fabulous?
If you would like to come and do this class with me next Saturday then please do let me know ASAP and I will sort you out with a kit!

Merry Medley background

Good Morning and welcome to my blog today! It's all go at Chez Kettlewell at the moment as we are spending a great deal of time looking at and researching universities for our eldest son Ross to potentially start next September. When I started this blog Ross was 8 years old and now we are looking at universities! Can't believe he is almost 18.

Today I am sharing a card we made at Coffee and Card a few weeks ago. I now have seat available at my weekly Coffee and Card sessions which take place every Tuesday morning on a drop in basis from 10am. Please note there is no session this coming Tuesday due to school holidays. 
I love a nice background stamp and this Merry Medley stamp is no exception, great for a quick background and I have stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake card to create a subtle background.
 Now I am still loving my embossing and I used the Copper Embossing powder on this card for the sentiment which turned out great, as you can see below. 
 Thank you to my customers who have used the code so far, still time to get yourself a little gift in November!
