Altered Picture Frame

Went to The Craft Box on Friday night to make an altered picture frame with tags behind, not finished mine (as per usual), so can't show the inside yet. We had a wicked night, lots of laughter, swearing, and frustration, oh and some biscuits. Sandy took the class and I'm not sure who was more frustrated her or us. She nearly gave up on us all.
Lesley with the heart she had triple embossed and then over stamped.

Gill & Helen

Angela and Lynn, who wins the prize for the best cleavage?

Sue (from Craftwork Cards) joined us and she began to wonder what she'd left herself in for... She didn't think that ladies swore, but then she had not met us before. First Virgina, who's not sure what she's supposed to be doing, then Helen, then me, got it wrong. We kept going though, nothing was going to defeat us.

Ann Marie is looking a bit serious, don't think she could believe what she was hearing! Here's Sandra giving me a hug, or was that she was really trying to strangle me!!!!

Sandra being really fed up with us all, I think by this time she'd given up and decided to let us do whatever we wanted.

I think everyone enjoyed themselves and went away with a great project.


  1. Hi Ann

    Love the photos - I think you summed up the evening very well! I've finished the pocket book and have done another with a larger frame and a new pocket template courtesty of my dear husband - this one although time consuming was much easier to put together lol! He's now on with making a box for it to go in, its a wedding gift for a cousin and looks great I'm really pleased with it - I've just written the instructions up for Fridays class - can't believe we got all that done in the time we were there!


  2. Sounds like you had a fab night Ann, can't wait to see your altered art picture frame!! Chanelle xx

  4. Sounds like you all had a great night. Lynne x

  5. Hi Ann

    I'm sure you must have done some more crafting by now! I've finally managed to set up a blog on here thanks to you - its called Celtichouse I've managed to blog and upload a few pictures - coming on in leaps and bounds - most fun! Hope you are well, the class at Elsecar which I think you're having tomorrow night is great, I wasn't sure if I'd managed to use the class again but its been awesome, I've used the principles and generated several double page layouts that i'm really pleased with! Hope you're having a good bank holiday weekend
