Happy KHC-hristmas

Hi everyone!

Last Saturday we had a lovely day at KHC - cuttin, stickin, eatin, drinkin, chattin ... you get the idea! What a perfect day - thanks girls!  :o)

L-R: Kate, Rosie, Gill, Amanda, Karen
There were ten of us for our Christmas Special and everyone brought along something different to do - so many gorgeous projects ...

First of all, we all (even Kate who doesn't "do" papercrafting) had a go at a mini matchbook album - see previous post for a link to the tutorial by the lovely Jules at Paperhaus.
Here's one of the little kits I made up, using some scrap cardstock and some of the freebie papers from the last two issues of Scrapbook Magazine (there was plenty for ten of us) ...


The card and paper was all pre-scored at home, so all we needed on the day was scissors, stapler, sticky stuff , sparkles, stamps and ink ...



Look what we made! I've used some cutouts frome the freebie papers to decorate the inside of mine ...


Here are Nicki and Trina working on their mini matchbooks ...


By this time, we were ready for our buffet lunch (yum!) then we all got cracking on our own projects ...


Trina was patchworking, using "Foundation by the yard" which is a new idea to me and seems to work really well, making the patchwork come together quickly and easily - must have a go myself ...


Here are Amanda and Karen, also working on patchwork ...


Amanda helping Karen begin the process of turning her patchwork pieces into a finished quilt ...


Nicki working on a wonderful pencil drawing ...


Annie #2 and Julie ...


Annie was making a gorgeous owl ...


... and Julie was happy scrapping ...


Gillian had loads of different stuff on the go - like beautiful braided ribbon wreaths ... and Rosie made the famous polar bear from a sock (I guarantee you have NEVER seen a bear like this one) ...


Kate was cross-stitching a Gorjuss picture for her new little niece ...


... which brings me back around the table to Yours Truly! Strangely, there isn't a photo of me (wonder how that happened?!) but here's what I managed to make in six solid hours of crafting time - minus one hour scoffing ..


... do you think maybe I talk too much??? hehehe

Thanks again girls for a perfect day - see you in the New Year :o)xxx
