StazOn Stamp-pad

A few weeks ago there were tourists in my shop and they wanted to buy this pair of wood carved giraffes. They had a problem though! If it does not have 'Namibia' written on it, they are not interested :-(( *Light Bulbs started GLOWING in my head!* I asked them if they would mind to wait for a minute and I'll have it fixed for them. They started smiling and said they will go for lunch and come back.

I grabbed my 'Namibia' clear stamp made by Enmarc as well as my StazOn Gold Stamp-pad (Enmarc) and 'voila!'

I have to add that I did not mount the clear stamp onto a mounting block, because the surface was very uneven. The people returned after their lunch, were very impressed, bought the curio and left ;-)
*pfewwwww! almost lost a sale!*

Class at Emsige Biene - Sun, Sand & Sea

Every Wednesday it is Scrap Day at Emsige Biene!!

This is how it works:-

I design a LO and write a tutorial for the class. Each Person chooses her own paper, TITLE and embellishments, thus no one's page looks like everybody else's page. This is actually very similar to doing a Scrapbook Kit.

This is my Layout

Oh noooooo, will have to find the pics :-(

LOL, now several days have passed since I got time to come and sit down and finish this post!!
New stock arrived at the shop and I have almost done unpacking, only a few small items to be marked ;-)

I used a sketch of a single page LO from Sketch Inspiration and ended up doing a double page LO:-

And this is my LO

These photos are of my only grandson and were taken during their visit in December. They spent many hours on the beach and just loved it!

The next LO's were done by ladies who attended the class.

Cidalia Gomes
Retha Muller

Vonni van Lill

All of these LO's turned out just beautiful and the ladies enjoyed it soooo much that they decided to become regulars ;-)

Those of you living nearby and would like to attend a class or 2, can contact me at the shop during business hours.

Thank you for stopping by :-)
