Happy Monday everyone! It's been a busy time here at DD HQ over the past few months, and I have lots to catch up on with the blog... especially with photos from workshops that I have been teaching and trade shows. Last month I went over to the UK and taught some workshops at Dawn Bibby Design Studio in Lancashire. It was a fabulous day!! Here's some photos from my time there:
The workshops were great, the ladies really made me feel very welcome and together we all had so much fun! I didn't manage to take any pictures during the first class, but here's some from the second class:
We created an accordion book using the Art de Fleur Collection and using Viva Decor Ferro on the covers. Texture was created by stamping into the Ferro with Background Stamps. Look at all the gorgeous covers here:
Here's some close ups of the texture... soooo yummy! This one is using the French Script Background stamp:
And here's one using the Flourish Background stamp:
We all had so much fun with the different stamps and all the different colours of Ferro! The different combinations are endless!
Here's a sneak peek at the inside of the books:
Everyone had chosen a different colour scheme to work with, and they all turned out so amazing! I love it when we all get to do 'show and tell' at the end so we can see all the different books together.
We all had a fabulous day. Dawn and all the staff were wonderful, all of the ladies who completed the workshops were so fun to be with too. One of the ladies, Sheila, had recently had a birthday and received this fabulous calendar that was created by her friend Karen:
Karen used the Alexander Bridge stamp from the Notre Dame Stamp set for the main image and Chocolatier stamps for the images on the sides. How fabulous does this look! What a great gift - Sheila was over the moon when she received this :)
Of course the workshops went by really quickly, time flies when you're having fun, right? Before I knew it, it was time to pack up and head down to the Stitches Trade show. I'll blog about that soon too. Here's a pic of Dawn and I at the end of the day.

A huge thanks to Dawn, the staff and all the students for a fabulous day!!
