Dear readers,
please forgive me for my absence! Life has changed tremendously for me in the last year, and paper crafting (sadly), has had to take a back seat for a while... however...
I"M BACK!!!!

So - who's coming to PaperCuts this month??? Next weekend is it? Someone PLEASE remind me lol!!!

PAPER-CUTS November 2013

Hello peeps! It's been a while I know... those that know me well will be aware that there's been some big changes in my life!! And alongside that, there's had to be some changes to Paper-Cuts.
So, for the time being, we'll be meeting on a Saturday only. Also, due to popular demand - no more kits! Instead, I'll be creating a layout (you'll still get written instructions, as before) which you can then re-create using your own, ever-growing stash.
Each month, there'll be a little something; this month you'll get the same 'love' stamp and mini heart that I've used on my layout as well as the die-cut 'love' piece. I covered mine in gold glitter - perty!
My supplies such as any inks, punches, stamps, sprays etc which I've incorporated into my layout will still be here for use. The only difference is that you get to choose which papers and added embellishments you'd like to bring along to complete your own layout. Good huh?
So, without further ado, here's this month's layout:

Like it?! For your reference, the photo is 4 1/2" x 3". I found this fitted nicely onto a couple of pieces of 6x6 paper used as matts, whilst allowing that beautiful die-cut piece to show. So then...see you Saturday - can't wait!! xxx

PAPER-CUTS June 2013

Hello ladies.... I'm going to keep this short and sweet, as I'm just about to take my hubbie out for a slap up meal! Here's this month's project:
As you can see, this month we're going for a double page spread! The photo's I've used are 3.5" x 2.5", but I'm figuring most smaller sizes would work.
Lots of cutting and stamping (surprise surprise) this month. Included in the kits are the wood veneer and chipboard pieces, but if you have anything at home that you feel would look good 'swinging in the breeze', then do please bring it along! See you this Friday/Saturday! xxx

........and a Card!

For those of you that look forward to making a card in class, here it is:
How's that for a cheery, springtime message; perfect for a dear friend! See the pretty vellum background? You'll be making that (with the help of a Martha Stewart AOTP punch)! Everything else is in your kits so nothing extra to bring/add for this one.
Righto... see you very very soon! xxx

PAPER-CUTS May 2013 Layout Two!

As promised... second layout for the day:

Sorry that the lighting's not the best and in fact, the shot is a little blurry, but I wanted to get it loaded tonight for you! This one features a small 1 3/4" photo - simply punched out of a larger 6x6 one. When choosing your snap, be sure that there is somewhere within the shot that'll make sense as a small circular photo!!
I'm really pleased with this layout; be warned, it looks fairly minimal but actually took a fair amount of time to create! Don't worry - if you feel like missing some of the intricacies out, I think it would still have quite a lot of impact.
The only things I've added which you may wish to bring along are some small word stickers. Mine are from Authentique - they do loads of different ones... you've even got time for a little shopping before class lol! Of course, you have your alpha stickers in the kit, which would do just as fina a job.
P.S. If anybody happens to own a 2" circle punch and one slightly larger to create a mount, do please bring them along - it'll save a queue for the Silhouette!


Hello girls! You'll be pleased to know that I'm getting a LITTLE more organised.... here's our first layout:
The kit is Gorgeous with a capital G this month; lots of fun, up to date colours and collections. We'll be using the Silhouette to create the hearts, as always, the obligatory stamping (!) and notice those cute mist splatters? You're all going to get proficient at that too!!
I've added a few lovely bits and pieces for this layout: canvas cameras, rub-ons and washi tape. Though we do get a sheet of small alpha tiles in our kits this month, I'm afraid you'll have to supply your own larger alphas if you would like your title to look similar to mine!
OK... layout two coming up later this pm! Hope you like! xxx

Thanks For Your Patience... Here We Go!

OK peeps... two layouts for you to consider, as per the norm! Take a look at number 1:

As I said - the kit has lovely rich colours this month - quite rustic too I'd say, so bare that in mind when you pick your photos. I've added many many polaroid frames to your kits to achieve the pretty cluster  - here's a close up:

Second up; something very 'graphic' for you to work on:

This bold style seems to be very in trend at the moment, so I have to keep you up to speed hey?? We'll be cutting out the arrows with the Silhouette machine from your papers. And the journalling? Well, tht's hidden behind the photo, so you can make it as personal as you like!
Remember to bring that faithful alpha sheet we received in our kits two months ago; I've used them in both layouts - they're still going strong!
Now, lastly... I going to promise to TRY and create a card to give you the instructions for, but I still have the write up's from these two to complete... and I'm a tad er... how shall I put it... knackered (!), so please don't be too disappointed if I don't achieve what I hope!!! xxx
