so did you guess?

Whilst on a pinterest wander last night I saw one of these.  I thought it was along the lines of a bobbin re-vamp as Wendy Veccii does but when I went to the picture source found it was a bobbin made from a loo roll!

 Having played with sewing themed stuff yesterday this really appealed to me as a quick but cute project to play with on a Friday night.
 Here is the top papers are by Hot off the press -Printery
a few bits and bobs already made and I like how it looks.  Certainly more exciting than the empty loo roll it once was.!

Today Michelle and I have been at Samuel Taylors Embsay store sharing lots of techniques in this rather dinky tag book.
Ten tags all exploring techniques of various ink pads and surfaces that work well with them - the poor ladies at the session were worn out - their brains befuddled with what works where - good job we have the instructions to hand and a handout to explain.
This was our 6th workshop based all around the properties of ink and most of the ladies have been with us at every session- I'm thinking they need a Graduation certificate they have learned so much.
Our classes are full on with a lot to pack in but always you will feel confident to continue the techniques at home so offer a great package for the crafter who wants to move on in their stamping.
We are excited about the next set of workshops carrying on this skill building journey so keep an eye out on the Lovin Inkshop blog to find out what we are doing.
Have a fab weekend x
Thanks for stopping by
