Cambridge Croppers

This time last week I was spending time with good friends, doing what I love most…scrapping!

IfaI have been trying to get along to one of the Cambridge Croppers crops for ages, but something always seemed to…well…crop up!!! So I was very pleased to at last meet the lovely Ifa, who’s LO designs I’ve admired for a long while! It was also a chance to catch up with these lovely ladies…

Hilary & Ann



   …Hilary & Ann who have
   been good company at
   many a crop over the
   past few years!

   With all the catching up
   done it was time to settle
   down to some serious
   scrapping & Ifa had created two fabulous class kit LO’s for us to work with.

15 Ifa CC LO #1Firstly, this one entitled ‘Rallying’ which used a great technique for twine which I will definitely be using again!! The alpha’s are gorgeous, Thickers called Muse by Amy Tangerine…love them!

I chose some photo’s of my boys being allowed to sit in the rocket car at Santa Pod raceway back in 2005…

…my background cardstock is actually white too, just not good light when I took the photo of my LO!!

17 Ifa CC LO #2

   Ifa’s second LO was called
   ‘waiting 4 the Queen’ & we got
   to play with fabulous ‘Keep
   Calm’ & union jack stamps by
   Artemia. I liked them so much
   I promptly came home &
   ordered them on-line!!

  I went with photo’s of our stay
  in London last year, when we
  played tourist & joined the
crowds to watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace…

18 All Change
So there you have it! A great creative day out! It is rare for me to actually complete two whole LO’s at a six hour crop! Not only did I complete these two, but I started a third which is still a work-in-progress!! Watch this space!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend & if the Olympic torch is headed your way, that you get to see it! It comes right through our village tomorrow morning, about an hour AFTER I have to leave for work! Typical!!

Thanks for stopping by & come back soon! Open-mouthed smile

Love both these LOs,Sandi....and the twine technique looks fab.
We've still got a week to wait til the flame comes through our town....but at least it's in the a good chance of getting to see it.

It was a shame I had to miss it. That torch will be covering some distance tomorrow. It's down our way as well. The reason your paper looks grey, is all DSLRs see White as 18% grey ! I am full of useless facts !

Lovely layouts! I've only ever made it to one Cambridge Croppers meetings but I intend to return just as soon as I can, would be great to meet up with you there!

It was great to finally meet you Sandra, hope this was the first of many. Yay to those stamps! Glad you found them. I loved looking through your scrapbook and was seriously tempted by all the Merly LOs.

Gorgeous! Cropping with Ifa is an ambition of mine too. One day we are going to get together and if you could make it too, that would be wonderful
